Let Your Word and Prayer be the first place our leaders go!
God’s Word and Prayer Restored in this Nation prayed by Debbie Squire January 26 at the Arizona Summit.
Let’s pray together:
We stand before you today Oh Righteous Judge, petitioning for the restoration of Your Word
and Prayer in America as it was in the beginning of this great land.
Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged
1 Peter 3:12 “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to
This country has a history of standing on Your Word and prayer. Harriett Tubman, Rosa
Parks, Bridget Mason, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Abigail Adams, Susan B Anthony and
many other women in this nation served You, sacrificed, prayed and stood on Your Word for
what was right. Gathered here today, WE ARE YOUR WOMEN OF THIS
NATION! We are standing on Your Word in prayer following your lead to bring about
change in this nation.
Proverbs 15:29 “The LORD is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.”
Your Honor, I bring to Your remembrance September 7, 1774 when 56 of the most gifted,
wealthiest men came together in a strong spirit of unity from all 13 colonies for the first
Continental Congress. You met these members of Congress that day and put Your seal on their
dreams of freedom for this nation. We do not take that seal of Your approval lightly. Today and
every day forward we pray and believe for full restoration in this country. We believe in the
principles this nation was founded on… YOUR WORD!
Again, You were there on July 4, 1776. The signers of the Declaration of Independence knew
this was more than a document. To them it was a covenant with You, the most solemn, most
sacred of human agreements. As they signed their names they understood that You yourself were
a witness of their actions that day just as you are witnessing our actions here today. Like the
pilgrims before them, they fully expected You to keep Your side of the covenant as they obeyed
Your Word. As we gather here today we are in agreement and pray that you would move Your
hand and sweep across this nation anew and restore this nation with our leaders prayerfully
consulting You at every decision for this country, keeping You as head, the covering over our
Deuteronomy 7:9 “Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God,
keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his
In July 1863 You saw when General Robert E Lee was marching toward the capital and
Abraham Lincoln humbled himself and prayed to You, Almighty God for this country. Let Your
Word and Prayer be the first place our leaders go to for the resolution of any and all issues
facing this nation. We know that Your Word is the answer to all things.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says: “… if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and
pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will
forgive their sin and heal their land.”
On December 4, 1800 congress decided that the Capital and the Treasury would also serve as
church buildings. Almighty One, open the doors to restore Your Word and Prayer in our
government and our government buildings. Let all government officials know and be in awe of
your presence which we pray will fill every government building and every political office.
Oh Righteous Judge, we stand before You in the courtroom of heaven and ask that Your Word
and Prayer replace the chaos and confusion in our nation, Your Word and Prayer replace the
anger and hatred in our nation, Your Word and Prayer replace of all evil and evil intentions in
Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever”.
We are asking You now to renew our national covenant with You.
