Earnest, Heartfelt, Continued Prayer

Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. 
James 5:16 AMPC

Today tens of thousands of people gathered in Washington DC for Prayer March 2020. The event was not a protest or a political rally. The gathering was simply to pray for our nation. I was able to livestream the event and I prayed along in agreement with the various people who led in prayer. There were prayers of confession of our sins as a nation and repentance for our wrongdoing as well as intercession based on seven prayer points. I thought the prayer points were so good that I am reposting them here from the prayer march website.  I believe that God heard the prayers that were prayed today but I also believe that God wants to hear our earnest, heartfelt, continued prayers and will respond in tremendous and dynamic ways. Let's turn our worry and anxiety about the condition of our nation into prayer. I believe that God will hear us and will heal our land. 

Here are specific ways you can pray for our nation, our families and all those in leadership at every level.
  • Humbling ourselves in repentance and asking God to forgive our sins and heal our land.
  • Our military, police and other law enforcement, firefighters, and their families. Security and peace for the nation.
  • Salvation of the lost. Renewed strength in our families. Frontline medical workers and solutions to the coronavirus pandemic. An end to abortion.
  • The president, the vice president and their families. All those who work in the White House and in the executive branch of our government.
  • Compassion and kindness toward one another. Respect and reconciliation between races. Healing in communities torn by violence and injustice.
  • Religious freedom. Boldness for churches to stand firm with the Word of God and to preach Jesus Christ in a troubled world.
  • Our Congress and other leaders at the national, state and local levels. The Supreme Court and judges across the nation.
