EL ROI, our GOD who sees ALL, today I bring our nation and leaders before You in prayer. I magnify the Name of Jesus and declare that He is Lord over this nation.
Grant our leaders wisdom beyond their own understanding and the courage and strength to chose the right path no matter how narrow the gate.
Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish. But happy is he who keeps the teaching.
Proverbs 11:14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.
Grant our leaders grace and strength
I pray for all those in authority over us. Give them the grace and strength to stand against the temptation to use power as a weapon but rather to carry it reverently, as one would a child.
Surround our leaders with wise, biblical counselors, who have a full understanding of the perilous times we live in.
2 Chronicles 7:14 – If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Grant our leaders wisdom
I Timothy 2:1-3 says that we are to pray, intercede and give thanks for kings and all people in authority. Grant our leaders the wisdom to fully respect and defend Christian values and our freedom to worship You, privately and publicly.
May they serve as faithful stewards of God’s authority in this land. Whatever decisions they make, may these not hinder Christ’s church, here and around the world, from flourishing.
But may they enact policies and legislation that protect the family, encourage parents, and uphold a biblical standard of righteousness.
Psalms 2:10-12 – Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
May they know our heart
Oh Lord, may the spiritual leaders of our country hearken onto your voice and know your heart. I pray that they would lead from their knees and, by that simple grace, bring each one of us to our knees before your throne.
Keep them pure, and faithful to your Word and protect them from all harm. Thank you, Oh Lord, for answered prayers! Amen.
King Solomon’s Prayer For Wisdom
I Kings 3:6-9 Solomon answered: “You have shown great kindness to your servant, David my father, because he walked before you with fidelity, justice, and an upright heart. And you have continued this great kindness toward him today, giving him a son to sit upon his throne.
Now, Lord, my God, you have made me, your servant, king to succeed David my father. But I am a mere youth, not knowing at all how to act. I, your servant, among the people you have chosen, a people so vast that it cannot be numbered or counted.
Give your servant, therefore, a listening heart to judge your people and to distinguish between good and evil. For who is able to give judgment for this vast people of yours?”
