Prayer Topic #1:
A Prayer Regarding Economic Recovery in the United States
Isaiah 40:18-29, Isaiah 62
Reflections of the Heart:
“Economy is the method by which we prepare today to afford the improvements of tomorrow.” – Calvin Coolidge
Gracious Father, we thank You for our elected officials. Thank You for consistently providing for the United States. Thank You for having a good plan for the United States economy so the citizens will have a future and a hope. Lord, we praise Your Name and celebrate Your Name with music. We know Your greatness, that You are greater than any other god. Lord, You do whatever pleases You throughout all heaven and earth, on the seas and in their depths. Your Name O Lord, endures forever; Your fame is known to every generation.
Blessed Father, we thank You for being Jehovah Shalom, the Lord God of Peace. We command peace to be still in the United States economy. By faith, we declare that President Biden, his administration, Congress and the members of the Joint Economic Committee who know You, will trust in You with all of their hearts and not depend on their own understanding regarding our nation’s economic recovery. They will seek Your will in all that they do and as they do this, we trust You will show them which path to take. We commit the members of the Super Committee to You: Don Beyer, Mike Lee, Martin Heinrich, Amy Klobuchar, Maggie Hassan, Mark Kelly, Reverend Raphael Warnock, Rob Portman, Tom Cotton, Bill Cassidy, Ted Cruz, David Trone, Joyce Beatty, Mark Pocan, Scott Peters, Sharice Davids, David Schweikert, Jaime Herrera Beutler, Ron Estes and Jodey Arrington. Lord, we declare that You will raise up people within our nation’s financial leadership who have a supernatural anointing like Joseph’s to receive, interpret, and administrate visions that will save companies, restore jobs, and open new opportunities in stagnant sectors of our economic markets. We destroy the demonic assignments working through the media to stir up confusion, fear, anger, hatred, and disunity in America. As the committee works together, we declare that their hearts, along with the heart of President Biden and the Congressional Leaders, will be like a stream of water directed and guided by You to wherever You please. We cancel the assignments of division, confusion, chaos and party politics when any bill goes before the House and Senate.
Holy Spirit, please show me how to effectively pray for our nation’s economy:
Holy Spirit, continue to guide President Je Biden, his Administration and Congressional leaders through future negotiations. As the Super Committee craft new policies, help them to remember all segments of our population. Release supernatural wisdom into their hearts and minds to reveal creative ideas and effective methods that will decrease our national deficit while continuing to provide the necessary standards, services and benefits to the American people. Enlighten their eyes and open their understanding to make sound decisions on which programs and agencies will receive less money. Let innovative and effective reforms be swiftly implemented by the White House and the U.S. Congress so that families who have been relying on benefits such as Medicare, Medicaid and unemployment can be sustained without fear of lack until our economy is revitalized. Touch the hearts of believers to continue to pray for this process so that future negotiations are successful. Please restore the global community’s confidence in the United States.
Forgiving Father, please have mercy upon our nation. Forgive us as a nation for worshipping money instead of You, the source of true provision. Forgive our nation for arrogance, apathy and pride. Forgive us for practicing a form of capitalism that oppresses our citizens through poverty, greed, avarice, injustice, and out-of-control consumption. Forgive our nation for abysmal financial decisions in the past that have created the current financial situation. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed.) Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.
Lord of Heaven’s Armies, You are the everlasting God. You are the Creator of all the earth. You never grow weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of Your understanding. You are the eternal King! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
