    Dear TK, thanks for sharing your heart concerning praying for your nation. Do you know you have an international readership beyond the USA? Please could you contextualise this page. Then you can ask non-us citizens to pray for America too or explain how to adapt to support/encourage your international readers to pray for their own nations/territories. 1 Tim 2:1-4 is a great place to start in praying for nations and leaders. 🙏🏽

    “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
    ‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭2:1-4‬ ‭ESV‬‬
