7 Good Prayers for a Troubled World

John 14:1, Psalm 46:10
Heavenly Father, Your Word says, “let not your heart be troubled”. The state of our world is causing us to be troubled, but God you know all things. So, we pray for every country and nation. We pray that you will give peace that comes only from You because we live in a very broken world. Grant healing and complete stillness in the midst of terror and violence in Jesus Name. Be still and know that I am God in this troubled world, Amen.

2 Chronicles 7:14
Dear Lord, we are living in a troubled world and the ever increase in crime and violence within our cities and among youth and children is rising. But 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 will forgive their sin and heal their land. Lord, we pray this pray, trusting and believing that You will forgive us of our sins and that You will bring healing to this chaotic world, Amen.

Romans 5:5
Oh Lord, Your Word reminds us that, the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. So, Father, we ask that You destroy the hatred and contentions from the hearts of our youth and children that is on the increase. Lord, let your love reign in them and let those who are influenced by darkness be opened to Your love, Amen.

Mark 16:15
Dear Lord, I pray that You will raise up more men and women to preach and share the good news in this troubled world. Father raise up those who will not be afraid to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Uncover the spiritual eyes of sinners of this world, that they may see the irradiating light of the gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Proverbs 19:21
Heavenly Father, we pray for divine intervention and God’s protection from violence, over every family in our towns and cities. We intercede for the victims of gun and knife crime. In the name of Jesus, we pray for and with other believers as we openly voice our prayers and commitment against the onslaught of gun and knife crimes within our cities and communities, Amen.

Acts 9:3
Dear Lord, we pray for our troubled world. There is so much that we need to pray and intercede for. We pray for those carrying the spirit of anger and vengeance. We pray against the spirit of persecution that has been released in our world. Lord, just as Saul encountered a Damascus road experience, God we pray for those who are committing sinful crimes, that the spirit of murder be destroyed. I pray that suddenly there will be a light from heaven that shines around those who do not know You, Lord we ask all this in Your Name, Amen.

Ephesians 6:12, 2 Chronicles 5:14b
Dear Father, we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities against powers against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. So right now, Lord, I ask that You sabotaged all forces of evil over this world. Let the King of Persia be nullified and let Your Holy Spirit fill this world, just as the glory of the Lord filled the house of God, Amen.
