Sometimes I’m just not sure how to pray for America, the land that I love.
I want God to bless her.
I want God to revive her.
I want God to discipline her in His goodness and love, bringing repentance.
I want God to be merciful to her.
I want God to restore her identity as “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
But here’s the thing that I can’t help but ask myself before I utter these prayers or any others:
What does God want?
What does He want for America? What role does she play in His perfect plan?
When I’m not sure how to pray, I’ve learned that praying the Scriptures is an excellent place to start.

He can be trusted.
