Prayer for America


Lord, Your sheep...
So many,

White, Black, 
Women, Men

Led around by the nose,
Your posterity reduced to puppets,
Enslaved by the false shepherds

of fear, of media, of government

Who bid them do their selfish will
instead of Yours
Leading Your sheepfold off a cliff
Shepherding them to their own destruction
Dividing the House against itself
Ensuring its fall
Dwarfing terrorism from without
Stirring up terror within

Oh Good Shepherd,
Raise up again
The True Shepherds
over this,
Our Country

Those who know Your heart,
Those who love Your sheep,
Those who belong to your House
and know how to lead us


Our Father in Heaven, 
Hallowed, Feared, Revered be Your name again in this country,
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done,
here, in America, in this world,
as it is in Heaven.

Matthew 6:9-13
