"Prayer for America"
An Open Prayer
for Spiritual Awakening
in the United States of America

(See Daniel 9:2-19 as the Model for this Prayer)

I, Sonny, understand from the Scriptures and the history of previous awakenings, that before any spiritual awakening can occur, we who have sinned must admit to what we have done wrong, and then ask for your forgiveness.  Jesus, our great and awesome Savior, who keeps his covenant of love and grace with all who love him and obey his commands: we have sinned and done wrong!  We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and rejected your forgiving love and grace.  We have not listened to your servants who spoke in your name to our government, our representatives, or courts, and to us.  Jesus, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame.  We have sinned against you.  The United States of America in general, and the Baby Boom Generation in particular, have rejected your offer of saving grace and instead chosen to embrace our own selfish natures.  Our sins and our iniquities have broken your heart and made your name and our generation an object of scorn to all those around us.  Now, Jesus, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant.  For your glory, Jesus, look with favor on this request to use the Road Trip Bible Timeline © and Decision Making in the Bible Process © to help take the gospel 24/7 to the lost generations in United States of America.  We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy and grace.  O Lord Jesus, hear! O Lord Jesus, forgive! O Lord Jesus, listen and act to save from selfish destruction the lost generations in America!
