Oh, Lord God

A Prayer for Wisdom and Healing

By Betty Robison Published on June 5, 2020

I come to you as one of your children, saved through faith in your son Jesus who paid the ultimate price for me and all who come to you in repentance and receive eternal life!

My heart is heavy for our country and the whole world as the battle intensifies between good and evil, truth and lies, life or death. I know you are committed to never leave us or forsake us and you are standing right in the middle of this battle for us. Oh God, please give us wisdom and the steadfastness to withstand the fiery darts of the enemy and come out on the other side maybe a little scarred or singed from the battle, but more committed and submitted to your perfect will through our lives.

Oh God, give us strength to love and forgive those who have hurt us and to show them the truth and light through your son Jesus Christ! Let your light so shine through us as your body so those that don’t know you will come seeking that light shining clearly through your children. We know you are the only way, the truth and the life!

Lord Jesus, as one of your children I ask for your peace that passes all understanding just as we experienced it when our daughter Robin left us to be with you in Heaven. Also that you will continue to have mercy and patience with your children during this time of terrible turmoil. I pray protection for our president and his family, along with all appointed and elected national leaders. Speak to each one of them and let them know you will give them wisdom and direction if they will ask.

Please do a supernatural work in our hearts and bring healing to our very sick nation and our world. May we realize the error of our ways and come to you broken and in need of the healing you freely offer. Lord, give us hope and strength to follow you and bring you honor and glory.
