A Prayer for America

	This prayer taken and adapted from Daniel chapter nine is one we need to pray. A nation that is called a
Christian nation walks in great jeopardy when it turns away from God for then some promises God made to
Israel concerning judgment also apply to it.

O Lord, the great and dreadful God, Keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love Him,
And to them that keep His commandments;

We have sinned, 
And have committed iniquity, 
And have done wickedly,
And have rebelled, 
Even by departing from thy precepts and thy judgments:

Neither have we hearkened to thy servants the preachers, Which spake in thy Name to our Presidents and
governors, And our fathers, And to all the people of the land.

O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, But unto us confusion of faces, as at this day;
To the men of America and the inhabitants of Washington, And unto all that are near and are far off,
Through all the follies whither thou hast driven them, Because of their trespass that they have trespassed
against thee.

To the Lord our God belongeth mercies and forgiveness, Though we have rebelled against Him;
Neither have we obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, To walk in His will, Which He set before us by His Holy Word.

Now to thee belongeth honor and glory forever and ever, Which thou receiveth through thy Son the Lord Jesus
