When a nation is in crisis, it can feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. We may not know what to do or where to turn. This is when we need to intercede for our nation prayerfully.
These verses below give us hope that God is close to those who are suffering. He is a good Father who loves his children and desires to see them healed and whole. He hears our prayers and he will answer them. So let us continue to intercede for those who are in need, and trust that God will do what only he can do.
Main Key Bible Verses when praying for a nation in crisis
Let’s examine the following scripture below …
Scripture tells us in Psalm 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” This is a promise we can stand on when our nation is in crisis. We can know that God is with us, and He will see us through this difficult time and season.
Another key verse to remember when interceding for our nation is Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” God has good plans for our nation! We can trust Him in the midst of crisis.
We see in Isaiah 40:31 that “those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” When we put our hope in God, He will give us the strength we need to get through this time. We can trust Him to carry us through.
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” – Psalm 34:18
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” – Psalm 147:3
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” – 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
