For God to heal our nation, we must turn from our evil ways. When we humble ourselves, pray, and repent of our personal, national, and corporate sins, we will experience revival, which will usher in the favor of God to cleanse his church. We invite Him to return to us as we return to Him. Pray through these Scriptures and repent of any evil the Holy Spirit exposes.
The following passages have been selected because of their connection to repentance, prayer, and turning to God for revival and restoration. These verses from the Holy Scriptures provide a spiritually nuclear opportunity to pray that God would move in the hearts of his people for our Nation.
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (PSALM 139:23-24)
There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. (PROVERBS 6:16-19)
He will give justice to the poor and make fair decisions for the exploited. The earth will shake at the force of his word, and one breath from his mouth will destroy the wicked. (ISAIAH 11:4)
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. (1 JOHN 2:15-17)
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. (COLOSSIANS 3:5)
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. (REVELATION 3:16)
