The Bible encourages us to pray for our leaders and our nation. In 1 Timothy 2:1-2, it says, “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (NIV). This verse reminds us of our responsibility to pray for those in authority, seeking God’s wisdom and guidance for them.

Psalm 33:12 declares, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance” (NIV). This verse highlights the blessings that come when a nation acknowledges and honors God. As we celebrate the 4th of July, let us remember to seek God’s favor and guidance for our country.

Jeremiah 29:7 encourages us to pray for the welfare of our nation: “Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper” (NIV). Our prayers for our nation’s peace and prosperity are crucial for the well-being of all its citizens.

Psalm 91:1-2 offers assurance of God’s protection: “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust’” (NIV). As we celebrate Independence Day, we can trust in God’s protection and guidance over our nation.

This 4th July prayer is designed to help you seek God’s presence and blessings for our nation. Whether you are praying alone or with others, let this prayer guide you in expressing gratitude and seeking God’s continued favor.

4th July Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we gather to celebrate the 4th of July,
We come before You with grateful hearts,
Thanking You for the freedom we enjoy and the sacrifices made by those before us.

Your word in Psalm 33:12 reminds us,
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.”
We acknowledge You as our Lord and seek Your blessings upon our nation.

Lord, Your word in 2 Chronicles 7:14 calls us to humble ourselves,
“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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
We humble ourselves before You, seeking Your forgiveness and healing for our land.

Grant wisdom and guidance to our leaders,
Fill our hearts with unity and peace,
And help us to walk in Your ways.
Bless our nation with prosperity, safety, and harmony.

Thank You for Your unfailing love and mercy,
For being our constant guide and protector.
We commit our nation into Your hands,
And trust that Your blessings will flow abundantly.

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
