Yahweh our God, I pray in Jesus’ name that I and ______________________, will fear you and serve you in all sincerity and faithfulness. May we be moved to put away anything that would draw our hearts away from you so that we may serve you with a whole heart. I pray that we and our entire households will serve you. Please continue to deliver us when we cry to you for help, and refuse to listen to any curse that may have been pronounced against us. May you bless us again and again. Please send your hornet ahead of us to drive out all spiritual forces of evil and deliver us out of their hands. I pray that we will recognize that we are not delivered by our own sword and bow but by your power. May we always remember that you have brought us out of spiritual slavery and protected us on our entire life’s journey. I pray that we will never even think of forsaking you to serve any other gods, knowing that you may bring disaster on us if we do. May we always remember that you are a holy and jealous God, and that you will not forgive rebellion and sin that is not brought under the blood of the cross. I pray that we will always choose to serve you and yield our hearts to you. Grant us such influence that there will be many who, because of us, will serve you throughout our lifetime. May each of us be known, as Joshua was, as a servant of the Lord. We pray together for our nation. We affirm that our liberty and security and prosperity come from you, and not from our own military might. You sent your hornet before us to bring us to this land and to subdue all our enemies. I pray that we as a nation will not forsake you to serve foreign gods. Incline our hearts to you and renew in us as a people a conviction that you are a holy and jealous God and that you will not forgive our rebellion and our sins as a nation if we forsake you. Remind us that you can turn and bring disaster on us and make an end of us as a nation, even after you have been good to us. I pray that every single man, woman and child in our nation will say, as Joshua did, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." I pray that our entire nation together will say, “The Lord our God we will serve, and his voice we will obey.” In the name of Jesus, Amen.
