Suggested Scriptural references ...
But the L-rd sits enthroned forever; He has established His throne for justice, and He judges the world with righteousness; He judges the peoples with uprightness.  Psalm 9:7-8
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!  May they be secure who love you! Psalm 122:6
You who put the L-rd in remembrance, take no rest, and give Him no rest until He establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth.  Isaiah 62:6b-7

Suggested prayers ...
We ask for Your wisdom, discernment and strength in all our dealings with other nations.
L-rd, as we pray for the restoration of America, we pray that You would make America a light to the world.
Father in heaven, allow us to restore a sense of national dignity.  Teach us once again to be a virtuous people, worthy of respect.  Allow the world to see Your truth displayed in our citizenry.
G-d of our Fathers, forgive our failures to seek Your guidance as we interact with the nations of Your world.
Please give Your perspective on this world and Your wisdom to all those who represent America in official dealings with other nations.
As our citizens travel abroad, L-rd, we ask You to quicken us to represent our nation honorably.
We pray that America would take the lead in ending greed and corruption around Your world. 
May we be a blessing to all nations, L-rd, but we especially ask You to lead us in our attitude and dealings with the nation of Israel, and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem in accordance with Your Holy Scriptures.
We ask You to lead and convict those who set foreign policy with a full understanding of Your Scriptural mandate to bless Israel.**
We would ask, L-rd, for favor from other nations who have benefited from the sacrifice of American blood and treasure.
Yes, Father, I agree and offer these prayers in the name of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. Amain.
**The Scriptural mandate is found in Genesis 12:3
And I will bless them that bless you and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.
