Father, I thank You that our nation was founded on Biblical principles. Our founding fathers believed in You, and our nation honoured You; and “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom He has chosen as His heritage!”(Ps.33:12). And I thank You, Father, for we have been blessed mightily in this vast land. 

But, Father, forgive us, for we, as a nation, have fallen away from those values and principles. We have fallen far below those standards on which we began. Our motto, “a Mari usque ad Mare,” which is officially translated “From Sea to Sea,” was based on Psalm 72:8 “He shall have dominion from sea to sea … .” (https://www.timescolonist.com/opinion/letters/canada-s-motto-has-meaning-behind-it-1.337673). May we, as a nation, give our nation back to the Lord, that He may have dominion over us from sea to sea.

As the “Dominion of Canada,” our motto, “A Mari usque ad Mare,” (Latin) translates “From Sea to Sea,” based on Psalm 72:8

Let us take back the ground that has been lost in this nation. May we, as a people, come before You, Lord God, and humble ourselves, and be reinstated as a nation under God, under Your Dominion from sea to sea, for Your Word says “if my people who are called by my name 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” (2 Chron.7:14). Oh, Lord, our land does need to be restored, healed, redeemed, transformed. Father, forgive us, our leaders, our land . . . . 

I pray for unity amongst all believers in this nation, now; and let Your eyes be open and Your ears be attentive to the prayers of Your people, that You may choose us as a nation to make a difference in this fallen world; that You would reformat this nation. Cause us to walk before You, doing according to all that You have commanded, keeping Your statutes, so You can reestablish this land as a nation under Your Dominion, and keep us in line for Your blessings (2 Chron.7:15-18). My heart cries out for this land that I love. 

Establish this new leader who will be a man after Your own heart, a leader of Your making who will do Your will. Bring this together, Lord, “For the day of the Lord is near upon all the nations. As you have done, it shall be done to you, your deeds shall return on your own head” (Obad.1:15). Bring us to a place where we will, as a nation, be in line for Your blessings, and not Your wrath.

I pray You will find this man in Andrew Sheer; and that Your will will be done through him for this nation, in Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name. Amen.
