American Psalms


American Psalms: Prayers for the Christian Patriot is available in Print, Kindle and Nook editions.


Steeped in American history with a strong biblical foundation, American Psalms takes the reader on a one-year journey of spiritual growth with weekly prayers for the nation, psalms for special days of prayers, relevant teachings to enhance your perspective and worksheets designed to promote prayer for America’s leaders. With prayers spanning subjects from our troops to the presidency, from NASA to the fishing industry, and from the economy to our children’s teachers, Masters has covered nearly every aspect of American society with scripture-based prayer while teaching the reader how to regularly pray for our nation without political bias


In a political atmosphere of division, this book promotes a non-partisan approach to praying for America. More than a book of prayers, American Psalms: Prayers for the Christian Patriot, offers a worship-based approach to becoming a Praying Patriot. Filled with Scripture-focused prayer, tips for your own spiritual formation and tools to fulfill God’s command to pray for those in authority over us, this book will renew your heart for the nation that gives personal liberty and the God who gives eternal freedom.
