A New President

My Dear Siestas, I can’t think of anything more appropriate and more Biblical than reserving this day on our blog for heart-felt prayers for our new president and his family. You are welcome to write your genuine words of intercession as a comment to this post just as you’d lift them before the Throne of Grace for President and Mrs. Obama and their two precious daughters. Today it makes no difference how anyone voted. God in His sovereignty has appointed this day and our new president needs our prayers. “This is good, and pleases God our Savior.” 1 Timothy 2:1-3.

    Lord God, El Shaddai…

    You have set in place the man for this season in Barack Obama as President of the United States. I pray you give him wisdom and guidance that his office would be one of truth and integrity in every way. Thank you for a President who recognizes and proclaims the name of Jesus Christ and I pray Lord, God that Your will would be done in his life and this country. I pray the President Obama would be a President in the legacy of David and Solomon – a godly leader, with godly wisdom and seeking godly truth. I pray that you would protect both his heart and his mind, protect his reputation dear Lord and his family. Keep pride and self-reliance far from him and grant him peace for the journey.

    May You bless our President and First Lady and their family, may You keep them, dear Lord. May You make Your face shine upon them Lord God, and give them Your Peace.

    I ask all these things to Your honor and Your glory Lord, and that they may be done according to Your holy will.

    In Jesus Name,

    I have been so burdened to pray for today as well. I saw this prayer online and posted it on my blog, I love it. I will copy/paste just the prayer part here.

    Our prayer, today, Our Father, is for President Elect Barack Obama:

    That You, the infinite font of wisdom, might grant him wisdom daily.

    That You, the loving God of all, might grant him love for you and for others, including our enemies.

    That You, the holy and righteous God of justice, might empower him to do what is right in all that he does.

    That You, the Lord, might grant him the charisma of insight to lead in this turbulent world and time.

    That You, the Healer, might grant him the grace of reconciling damaged relations in this country and in the world about us.

    That You, the God of Life, might grant him a commitment to act for all — the unborn and born, the young and old, the civilian and the soldier — to preserve life and honor that each of us is fashioned in the image of God.

    That You, the Father, might grant him the time and wisdom to father his two young daughters and love Michelle, his wife.

    And that You, the God of all comfort, might grace him and his family as they mourn the loss of his grandmother.

    Lord, hear our prayer.

    Through Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

    Lord God, may our newly elected President keep humility as his mantle before you. May he dedicate his life to you and live with an awareness of Your sovereignty every waking hour of his life. Bless and keep his wife and children. FIll each with strength this day and everyday thereafter. Draw this family and the rest of our nation close to you.

    Father, I thank you for the promise that the leaders’ heart is in YOUR Hands. I pray that President Obama would have a personal and intimate and saving relationship with Jesus Christ alone. I pray he would not love power or unlawful gain in any way. I ask that the incoming president would look to You alone for direction and wisdom and that even now You would be silencing any other voices who wish to persuade him to plans for any type evil, especially when it is not immediately evident. I pray for clarity of mind for the president that can only come from an ongoing relationship with You. I pray that the evil one would be thwarted in his every plan against our new president and this country. Have mercy on us all, Lord – we really, really need it.

    In the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.

    Lord God, You are above ALL others may You be glorified in these next 4 years.

    Eph 6:
    10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
    14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

    Numbers 6
    22 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: 23 “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:
    24 “The LORD bless you and keep you;

    25 The LORD make His face shine upon you,
    And be gracious to you;

    26 The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
    And give you peace.”’
    27 “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”

Lord, you love them all so much. You don’t love them any less than You love me and HOW I PRAISE YOUR NAME for that fact.

    Surround our president with people who love and serve You. Lord, even though he is now the leader of this world power, You’re still ultimately concerned about the condition of his heart. I pray his heart is genuinely for You.

    And I pray that the Christian community would love President Obama as You’ve called us to. Give us hearts that desire to serve You . . . . hearts that desire to live as You’ve told us to. May we completely obey You before we demand it of others.

    Dear Father,

    This is the day that you have made and I choose to rejoice and be glad. Before the foundations of this world were laid, you had this day on Your mind for such a time as this. I know it is no coincidence that I was reading with my student today about the Civil War conflict and what our great President Lincoln did to bring unity to Your children. I was also humbled to learn, Gracious God, that our new President took his very oath of office on President Lincoln’s Bible. We have come full circle. I am just in awe of a Creator who thought of EVERYTHING and brought it to full completion by just saying the WORDS – Let there be…
    And God, it is GOOD!

    My Abba, You amaze me and Your daughter loves You so much!! I know it is YOU who sets up kings and deposes them for YOUR purpose! Your WORD tells me that in the book of Daniel. Father, may You anoint our new President with the power of Your HOLY SPIRIT. I pray that You give Your angels charge over him and his family so they won’t as much as stub their big toes. Keep Your hand of protection over him so that he would be protected to go about the task that You have for him.

    And Dear Father, may President Obama fall in love with You for the first time or all over again. I pray that his relationship with YOU becomes VERY personal and VERY real to him so that he won’t even be able to start his day without acknowledging You. May he learn to trust YOU with all of his heart and lean not on his own understanding. I pray that in all of his ways he asks for Your guidance so that you may order his steps.

    I also ask that any plans the evil one may have, that You would thwart those plans. Bring YOUR light to the dark, hidden places so that any forces of darkness or evil may be exposed in the name of Jesus Christ.

    Please grant this nation a new birth of freedom and help us to bring revival all across this land. Bring us together as one nation under Your Holy Reign. Help us to love like you love us.
    And Dear God, let it begin with me.

    I love YOU. I trust YOU. And Father, You can count on my to do my part to help Your Kingdom come!!

    Thank You, Jesus. For it is in that very name, the name above all names, that I pray.

    The Journey Continues ~

    We The "Siesta's" of the United States of America on January 20, 2009 pray wisdom, and values over the three branches of government.

    God doesn't ask you to agree with those who govern you, but He does ask you to obey them and pray for them!

    God tells us to submit to them
    1 Titus 3:1

    Obey Them
    Romans 13:1

    Pray for them
    1 Timothy 2:2

    The Executive Branch = President who is allowed to appoint many officials ( including the Supreme Court justices) and decide a budget for the government's expenses & veto as well as decide on war.

    The Legislative Branch, Congress=
    made up of the House of Representatives and the Senate which makes laws.

    The Judicial Branch,headed by the = Supreme Court, who decides if a federal law has been broken.

    Let us upliftin prayer the Obama family and all of the men and women in our federal government.

    Let us pray for President George W. and Mrs. Laura Bush for their 8 years of service and keeping our country safe from any terrorist attacks. May they cuddle up together and enjoy their retirement in Texas with family and future grandchildren!!!!

    Remind your people to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always to do what is good.
    Titus 3:1

    Just as we trust God to rule in our hearts, we need to trust Him by obeying those who rule over us, even if we disagree.

    God Bless America

Daily, Father God, remind him who really is in charge. Daily, Saviour, impress on him that there is only one Savior that is able to save this world.

    At this new time of leadership, Lord, I pray for your Holy Spirit to lead in our leader. I pray that He would rest in Christ and yield to the Holy Spirit’s power in his leadership. I pray that his wife, too would lead under submission but with strong conviction and character. I pray that Your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control would overcome our world and our overseers. I pray for the two precious girls that they would be loved and accepted in their new place, that they would find immediate godly friendships and mentors and you would let them know of your prescence with them as their parents are busy. Guard their family time and their time with you, Lord. In your precious Son’s Name, Jesus Christ.

So Father we are lifting President Obama and Joe Biden up to you and ask that all your blessings are bestowed on them.

    In Your Son’s mighty and precious name. Amen

    Lord, I pray for both President Barack Obama AND former-President George W. Bush. I pray that that they would both seek Your face for wisdom in the coming days, months, years. I pray that You would sustain them and direct their paths. I pray that they would both experience unspeakable joy…that only comes from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    “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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
    2 Chronicles 7:14
