Say It Today, Pray It Tomorrow

Hey, my dear loved ones!

I believe God has placed something on my heart for us to do here in our community for the next several vital days on our nation’s calendar. It will take place in two parts.

Part One: Today and for the next twenty-four hours in comments to this post, those who are willing are going to comprise prayers drawn from Scripture for our new president and the nation he will lead. These Scriptures incorporated into prayers don’t have to be limited to the ones we’re most accustomed to seeing for leaders. By all means, look at those but also consider a Bible-full of precepts that speak to character and integrity and the many qualities that comprise a great leader.  See how the Holy Spirit might lay them on your heart and turn them into intercession. Also consider Scriptures that speak to issues like protection from harm for our president and for our nation and wholeness of heart.

If you need a launching point for your thoughts, think about how you’d want people to pray for your husband if he were elected president tomorrow. Go from there. Make it any length from a few sentences to a meaty paragraph but not long. Remember what Jesus said about those wanting to be heard for their many words in prayer. Keep it succinct and sincere. This is really important and you’ll see the reasons why during Part Two. The comments to this post will be limited entirely to prayers. Please add no other words or comments or even greetings or replies to one another on this one. Let’s just do the thing that really makes the difference. Refrain from signing your name to the bottom of it because you’re going to see in Part Two that others will be using it. Just sign off with an “Amen” or similar benediction but do indeed list any references for the verses your prayers were based on.

The most important discipline of this process is writing our prayers before we know who our president will be. Needless to say, other petitions specific to the man who is elected will be vital throughout his presidency but for this public format and for this 24-hour period of time, we’re going to write our prayers without knowing who it will be. I think (and hope!) we will find this approach very effective and helpful in our focus and prayer-direction throughout Part Two. Oftentimes, heightened emotion and opinion cloud focus, clarity, and wisdom in our prayer lives, especially with so much at stake. It’s hard to pray according to the Holy Spirit when our flesh is inflamed. Remember at the end of all of this, our God is sovereign and at no time does He lose control.

Your prayer will need to take this basic skeletal form:

Address God the way you feel led (Dear Father in Heaven or Creator of Heaven and Earth or Sovereign Lord, etc.)

Write the petition for our new president and for our nation.

Conclude it “In Jesus’ Name, Amen” or with something of similar intent and assigned authority.

List all Scripture references that your prayers were drawn from or based on. (Just the locations. You do not need to write them all the way out.)

Part Two: 24-hours or so after this post opens for comment, it will be closed. In other words, by mid-morning Tuesday, November 6th (Election Day) there will be no further way to leave additional comments but you will have full access to all of those already written. (Comments that come in after work hours this evening will all be posted before the 24-hour closure so don’t worry. If you write a prayer before the 24 hours is up, it will get posted when Lindsee is able to complete all moderations. It takes a while.)

After the election results are in, here’s what I’m suggesting. This is the time we get to reap the harvest sown in Part One.  Come back to this post and start voicing a number of these prayers that resonate most with you. More importantly perhaps, consider voicing the ones that may be harder for you but you know they are godly, sound, and Scriptural. If you’re less sure about some of them, look up the Scripture references the intercessor listed and see if the context gives you any insight or direction. You can use this as a resource for your prayers not only in this 48-hour period but in days to come. Consider praying several of them per day until you work your way through them. That’s what I’m going to shoot for. I’m hoping to print them out and stick them in my prayer journal and voice several at a time over the weeks to come until I’ve agreed in prayer with practically all of them.

I’m not remotely suggesting this is the only way to pray for the next few days and in the weeks to come. It’s just one way but I really do believe this is the approach God placed upon my heart for our blog community. I’m looking so forward to harvesting some of this fruit in the coming days and there is no doubt in my mind that it will help direct my petitions and cause me to intercede for things I would have overlooked. I am continually inspired in my prayer life by the powerful prayers of others. Aren’t you? Let’s do this, Sisters. I think blessing awaits us and, far more importantly, awaits our new president.

I love you so dearly, ladies. My word, we’ve been around long enough to spend our second election together. I pray with all my heart that God will be pleased with this community and will use it to encourage and edify the Body of Christ in a way only He can empower or explain. He is so worthy of our trust and He is well able and willing to respond to earnest prayers that align with His will and come to Him through the glorious, saving Name of His Son.

Before I sign off, all three Moore-Jones-Fitzpatrick girls could use your prayers! We are all headed to the other side of the world and to two different locations. Later today Melissa and I will board a plane for Greece for a dual-purpose trip over the next 7 days. (Voted early) As guests of Nick and Christine Caine, we will have the privilege of seeing some of the work of the A21 Campaign (Abolishing Injustice in the 21st Century) from a much closer angle and attend (and serve at) a conference there. I love nothing better than seeing what God is doing around this globe. God is using this time on the Kingdom calendar to expose horrendous injustices – particularly in the areas of human trafficking – that need to be fought by the Body of Christ. (See Isaiah 58!)

Melissa and I are also beginning a new Bible study journey together and, with the help of a guide, will be doing research in some very strategic places involved in the series. You will not waste a prayer on us! Pray for God to show us great and mighty things that we do not know (Jeremiah 33:3) and bless us with powerful encounters and insights and help us to serve people effectively and affectionately there amid such cultural differences. We are certain they will be a blessing of God to us but we want so much to also be a blessing of God to them. THEN, Amanda follows right behind us two days later (on Wednesday) heading to India for a very important mission trip with the organization “As Our Own.” Even in our very different destinations, all three of us will be serving in areas where human trafficking is appallingly prevalent and believers are being mobilized slowly but surely to cry out and labor for its end.

So! As usual, you won’t waste a prayer on the Moore-Jones-Fitzpatrick women and our families. (But don’t write them into your comment. Laughing. Don’t let me, your very own blog mama, get you off course with our purpose today! Only prayers for the president in your comments please.) Thank you so much, dearly loved ones.

Though I will be far from home, I’ve already prepared some blog posts for you in advance (look for one on Thursday) and Lindsee will be also be holding down the fort. So, have no fear, Siestaville! The city doors will stay wide open here throughout! Watch for the three of us on Twitter if you want to keep up with some things we’re experiencing in real time. (@bethmooreLPM, @AmandaMoJo, @MissFitz77)

You are dearly loved and prioritized here, Sweet Things. Now START WRITING PRAYERS!

May he be known by all the people of the world as favored in Your sight because he will only go where You lead. And, finally, that our president will trust in You with all his heart, and will not lean on his own understanding. In all his ways will acknowledge You, and You will make his paths straight.

    Heavenly Father, Thank you that You are the God who changes times & seasons; You set up kings & depose them; You give wisdom to the wise & knowledge to the discerning. (Daniel 2:21) We know, with hope, that this election & the direction of our country is in your hands. I now pray for the president. I pray his walk is blameless & he does what is righteous, & speaks truth from his heart & has no slander on his tongue, does no wrong to his neighbor & casts no slur on his fellowman, & despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD. I pray he keeps his oath even when it hurts, & lends his money without usury & does not accept a bribe against the innocent. (Psalm 15)

I also pray for the next President whether it is Barack Obama or whether it is Mitt Romney. Lord, you know. I pray that you would enable them both to understand your will. I pray that you would give them wisdom and spiritual understanding. I pray that you would enable them both to honor you. I pray that you would give them the ability to bear good fruit. I pray that you would give them an appreciation of you and that you would bring them to the knowledge of the truth. I pray that you would help them to know the truth and that your truth would set them free. I pray that you would fill them with your strength. I pray that you would fill them with Christ’s joy.

    Almighty Father,

    We ask that our leaders and President would not trust in human wisdom but in the power of God and the wisdom He provides. We ask that the power of the Holy Spirit would convict them and reveal God’s truths so they can lead our nation in truth and love under God’s direction.

    Dear Heavenly Father

    You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Nothing surprises you or catches you off guard. You never lose control, Praise God! We come before you, humbly and boldly around the throne of our gracious God, who we find grace to help us when we need it most (Hebrews 4:16). We are asking for wise leadership for our next President because without it a nation falls, there is safety in many advisers. (Proverbs 11:14). Lord, we are your people, today we are seeking your face and humbling praying, that this land will turn from its wicked ways and that you will forgive our sins and restore our land to one nation under you (2Chronicles 7:14). We love you Lord.

    Dear Papa,

    I pray that our next President of the United States will follow You, Your laws, statues, and precepts completely. That they will seek You with all their heart, soul and mind. That they will have no other gods before them, because You the ONE TRUE GOD. You have taught this nation your statues and precepts through our Founding Fathers and Your Word. In Deut. 4:7 says, “For what a great nation is there who has a god so near to them as the Lord our God is to us in all things for which we call upon Him.” May our next President be blessed for he will be a man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly (following their advice, their plans and purposes), nor stands (submissive and inactive) in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down where the scornful and the mockers gather. But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually medicates by day and by night. And he shall be like a tree firmly planted (and tended) by the streams of water ready to bring forth its fruit in it’s seasons; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper (and come to maturity remaining fixed and stable). Those therefore the wicked (those disobedient and living without God). But they are like the chaff (worthless, dead, without substance) which the wind drives away….Psalm 1:1-4

    I pray all these things in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Emily Furda says:

    I come before You now, asking You to be in charge over tiny detail of our nation. Thank You that You are The Lord over everything.
    Father I pray for peace for our president. I ask You that he will realize the the government is on the shoulders of Jesus & he does not have to do this alone. Give him peace and let his yoke be easy and light as he works with you.
    I pray that he will turn to You for wisdom and soften his heart to hear You. I pray that he prays to you and as he turns his ear to You you would give him wisdom, insight, understanding an guard his ways. Protect him from all attacks both spiritual & physical. May no harm come near him.
    I pray that he will put his heart in Your hands & You will direct it like a watercourse through the rapids so that his ways and the ways of our nation will please You.
    I pray that he will seek Your kingdom and righteousness and realize that if he puts You first, all material needs of our nation will be met.
    Thank You Father for hearing our cries.

    Ancient of Days,
    We praise You that You are the one who removes kings and establishes them. We praise You that Jesus, the King of kings, sits at Your right hand, far above all rulers and authorities, powers and dominions, and every title–including President, Senator, Representative, and Judge–that can be given, not only in the present age, but also in the one to come. In that confidence, we entrust ourselves and our nation to You. Guide us in Your will, not ours, as we cast our votes. May the elected officials, including our next President, live in voluntary personal submission to Your reign. Show them Your ways, O Lord; teach them Your paths, for You are God our Savior, and our hope is in You all day long. We ask this in the name and authority of Jesus the mighty one. Amen.

    Dear Heavenly Father,

    I know that no matter what, You are in control, and with that, I lift up our next president to you. Teach him Your way, O Lord, the way of Your statutes, and help him to keep them to the end. Give him understanding, and help him keep Your law. I pray he shall observe it with his whole heart. Help him to walk in the path of Your commandments, so he may delight in them. Incline his heart to Your testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn his eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive his heart in Your way. Establish Your word in him, so he will be devoted to fearing You. I pray he will long for Your precepts, and that you will revive him in Your righteousness. Please give him the wisdom to run this country in a way that will always honor You. Help him to realize that in honoring You, You in turn will honor this great nation of ours. I pray all of this in the precious name of your son, Jesus. Amen

    Heavenly Father, my refuge and my fortress, in You I will trust. I pray that our President shall embrace truth as his shield and buckler. I pray that he will seek you to find wisdom, truth, discernment,and help. May he find a great love for you, our country, and his fellow man. I pray that you will protect him and his family and that you will cover him with your feathers and under your wings provide refuge. May he be a man of integrity and truth and may he call upon you to gain help in guiding our nation beyond the trouble it now finds itself. Open his eyes to the truth that those who call upon you will be delivered from trouble and will be set on high and you will honor them. Give your angels charge over him and keep him in all his ways that he may continuously look to you for guidance. In the mighty name of Jesus and through the power of your precious blood, I Pray. Amen and Amen. (Psalm 91)

Lord, I pray you would put us on your path and keep us there. I pray for the President of the United States of America, that you would turn his heart in the way that you want him to go, and that you would lead him, direct him, and sustain him with a willing spirit. I pray, Lord, that he will follow you. Thank you, Lord, for blessing this country and the families and individuals in it. Make us a blessing to the world. Thank you, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Cheri B. says:

    Heavenly Father, I pray first off for true conversion and true conviction for our president – for that is the most important thing, that He truly knows You. I pray that You will give him the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that He may then know You better (Eph. 1:17). I pray that he will not be anxious of anything but in everything, through prayer and petition and with thanksgiving for the blessings You’ve given him (and us), present his requests to You as he leads our nation through a harrowing time with so many going their own way and not following You. (Phil. 4:6) I pray that he do nothing out of vain conceit or selfish ambition but in humility to consider others better than himself (Phil 2:3) so that he will have compassion for others. I pray that he be a warrior for You and for our country and fights for those who cannot fight for themselves – the elderly, the children, the poor and the unborn. (Nehemiah 4:14) Lastly, I pray for his and his family’s protection from harm. Thank You for hearing my prayer! In Jesus mighty name – Amen!

    Holy Father,

    We do not know the heart of any man but, you do. We know that you do not desire that any perish but all come to know you. Foundationally, Father, we pray that this person whom you have allowed to be our leader, would embrace You as Lord and Savior. Guard him from evil, may he seek your will above man and in the end, may it be said by You to him – of his actions, well done good and faithful servant. Amen.

    Dear Lord Jesus,

    Thank you for our leader, our President. I pray for Your wisdom to be bestowed upon our leader. That he will know the Way, the Truth, and the Light! I pray that he has a true relationship with You, Lord and Your word and his life will bear fruit. I pray that he fears the Lord. Proverbs 3:7, 9:10. I pray that he will be humble and quick to agree with God about his sin. Psalm 51:1-2. Lord, may he hate evil and love righteousness and avoid evil in his life. I pray that he takes a strong stand against anything evil and not of YOU. Proverbs 27:12, 1 Corinthians 10:12-13. I pray for a President to be a man of peace, let the Holy Spirit control him and how he responds. I pray that our President will stand for truth and against evil and any injustices. i pray for his and his families protection. Ephesians 6:13. I pray that he will be a man of prayer, that he will seek Your face, Lord. 1 Thessalonians 5:17. I pray that our President will serve God and others and this country with a pure heart and glorify You, Lord! Colossians 3:23-24.

    Gindi says:

    Dear Father God,

    God who leads us into battle to fight unafraid and leads us through the war victorious, we know that we have battles to fight here in our land. We know that You alone oh God must be glorified in what we do and yet, heartbreakingly, all too often now You are not even acknowledged.

    We trust this country to You. We trust that You already know the outcome of the election and that, regardless of what the papers say on Wednesday, You can do a revival work through the President if he will listen for Your voice. We trust that You also can lead us as a people back to Your path and lead this land into the victorious promised land if we will undergo a transformation of our hearts and minds. You have told us:

    Then you will have success if you are careful to observe the decrees and laws that the LORD gave Moses for Israel. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged. (2 Chronicles 32:7, NIV)

    Hezekiah rallied the people, saying, “Be strong! Take courage! Don’t be intimidated by the king of Assyria and his troops—there are more on our side than on their side. He only has a bunch of mere men; we have our God to help us and fight for us!” (2 Chronicles 6, The Message)

    We pray for strength and courage as Americans. We pray for encouragement rather than discouragement. We pray that the words of our mouth and the mediations of our mind will embody Your strength and courage rather than negative and critical attacks. That we would be reminded that it is not one man that makes America, it is the people of America that make it. And while we pray with the utmost fervency for the next President that You bestow on this land, we pray with equal fervency for Your people to rise up and do Your work and be Your light.

    Give these two men rest tonight. Give them Your peace. Give them strength to fight the battles that yet lay before them. Let us rise up to encourage them along the way.

    In Your Precious Son’s Name we pray,

    Father God, I come to you to ask for guidance for our President. I pray that he will look to You and Your strength and seek Your face ALWAYS! You are God who arms him with strength and makes his way perfect! Strengthen him with power through Your Spirit in his inner most being, so that Jesus will dwell in his heart through Faith! I pray you give him discernment to do what is best for our country, and be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ– to the glory and praise of You! God, you are not unjust, You will not forget the work and love the President will show as he helps lead us, Your people! God bless America and help us to humble ourselves and to pray for our new President!
    In Jesus’ Name I pray! Amen!

    You are the author of history and of the future. Praises to Your Holy Name that nothing can change the final outcome, “King of the ages […] For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.” You have already won the victory. In this election, Lord please speak so intently to our soon-to-be-president. If you can change the heart of Nebuchadnezzar then you most certainly can work in the hearts of our president. May you bless this nation and through our elected official may Your love and the freedom of the Cross be proclaimed.
    (Rev 15:3-4, Daniel 4)

    Dori Cook says:

    Heavenly Father,

    Our hope is built on nothing less than Your great Name and the provision of Your Son, Jesus. We trust in nothing else. While we are waiting on Your unshakeable Kingdom to come to us, we walk and live and breathe in this earthly kingdom. Tomorrow decisions will be made that will determine the direction our nation will take in the coming years and for generations to come. One man will be the leader in those decisions. For this man we pray.

    Your Word says that You rule the kingdom of man and you give it to whomever You will. We will trust in Your sovereignty in the days to come. We pray that the man You choose will be one who will govern with Your wisdom, with Your integrity and with Your heart. We pray that You will be his “true north” in all decisions and that Your will and Your pleasure will be all he will seek. We pray that he will not take lightly the privilege of holding office and that every morning he will submit to You and look to You for the challenges he will face. (Daniel 4:25)

    We pray that even with the demands of being the President of our country, that he will guard his heart and develop spiritual disciplines – that Your Word and listening for Your voice will be the power from which he draws his strength. (2 Peter 3:18, Proverbs 4:23)

    We pray that our President will be a man of patience and peace. We pray that he will be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. We pray that the Holy Spirit will control all of his responses — both here and abroad. (Psalm 34:14, James 1:19, 1 Thess 5:16-22)

    We pray that our President will find times of relaxation and refreshment in You and that in his greatest times of stress he will find joy and peace in Your presence. (Psalm 16:11)

    God, we pray that our President will fulfil the purpose You have had for him since the foundation of the world and that he will pursue only those dreams and plans that will bring You glory and count for eternity. (Jeremiah 29:11, Ephesians 2:10, 1 Corinthians 10:31

    We pray for peace in his family and protection over their lives. We pray for his marriage that his wife would be a faithful helper as he meets the demands that his job will present.

    Our lives are in Your hands, God. We trust no man, but we believe that You are in control and will make perfect that which concerns us — today, tomorrow and for all of eternity. (Psalm 138:8 NKJV)

    My trust is in You and You alone…help me trust You more. My love is deep, for you Lord…help me love You more.

    Abba Father,

    We know you already know the man that will serve as our next President. I ask that this man will be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding. I ask that he will walk in a manner worthy of You, pleasing You in all respects. I ask that this President will bear fruit in every good work, and I pray he will increase in the knowledge of You. I pray that You will strengthen him with Your power in order to remain steadfast in the Spirit. Lastly I hope that he will joyously five thanks for all You have done for him. And for our nation, I hope that we will become prayer warriors in and for all things. We thank you for your promise that if we humble ourselves, seek Your face, pray and turn from our wicked ways, you will forgive our sin and heal our land. Thank you for everlasting mercy and grace! In Jesus Name, Amen Colossians 1:9-14, IIChronicles 7:14

    Robin Priestley says:

    Dear Lord Jesus, hear our prayer. According to 1 Timothy 2:1, we lift our requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving to you, for all those you place in authority over us who help us live peaceful, quiet and godly lives. We praise you for the privilege to vote, and for the freedoms we enjoy. We ask you to appoint the president and every other elected official, and we rest knowing all things are in your capable loving hands. Bless us with wise, God-fearing believers who bring everything to you in prayer. Remind us that you can use even those who are not believers. Above all, Lord, we ask your will to be done. We pray for our nation to turn back to you. We thank you for the very precious gift of your presence with us. We pray in your name, Jesus. Amen

  33. 133

    Almighty God, I have heard all about You, Lord, and I am filled with awe by the amazing things You have done. In this time of our deep need, begin again to help us, as You did in years gone by. Show us Your power to save us. And in Your anger, remember Your mercy. (Hab 3:2, NLT)

    In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Stephanie says:

    My All-Powerful, Gracious, and Loving Heavenly Father,
    Everything is Your hands, all power in heaven and on earth is Yours. (1 Chronicles 29:11) We trust You with all of our heart with the election of our new President tomorrow. We pray that he would seek Your understanding, not his own, that You would guide his paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6) That he might truly know You. That he would be a diligent workman who is not ashamed of Your Name and Your Truth and Your Righteousness. (2 Timothy 2:15) That he might lead our Nation in Your Love. We love you Lord!
    In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

    Julie E says:

    Dear Heavenly Father…

    What we do not know, you knew from the beginning. You have placed two very different men in a tight race to lead our country. The one who will further your plan will be elected. I pray that that man with honor you, consult you and realize that you alone are Sovereign. I pray that he will look to you for guidance.
    For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10 NIV)

    I pray that our president will not become tainted by his power, but realize that his power came from you. I pray that he will not be deceived by the enemy, but will stand firm in his faith and talk to you daily. Help him to be a man of honor throughout his presidency.
    Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, (Philippians 2:3 NIV)
    Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. (Ephesians 5:6 NIV)
    Everyone lies to their neighbor;
    they flatter with their lips
    but harbor deception in their hearts. (Psalm 12:2 NIV)

    I pray for our president to be safe, to do his absolute best, to break down barriers and work together to solve problems, to not show favoritism, to not be afraid to stand for what is right and good in the eyes of the Lord.

    Thank you Lord for our freedom. Help us to exercise it wisely. Help us to not grumble and groan if our candidate is not elected. Help us to know that ultimately you are in control. As a country, united we stand, divided we fall. Thank you for holding us in the shadow of your wings.

    In your Holy name,

    Heather Terhune says:

    Dear Lord – I ask that our future president would be as a good shepherd to the flock of this nation that you have entrusted to him, serving as overseer — not because he must but because he is willing, as You would want him to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to him, but as an example to his flock. I pray that he would be a man that when you appear would receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. I pray he would humble himself under your mighty hand. In Jesus’ name, Amen 1 Peter 5:2-4, 6

    Angel Varney says:

    Our Heavenly Father,

    I come to you on behalf of myself and my country today Lord Jesus. I am asking that your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven in this election. I have my own opinion-but YOU Oh Lord know what is best and that is why I ask for YOUR PERFECT WILL to be accomplished.

    I pray that you would bless the next president with an extreme amount of wisdom and intelligence to lead our country toward a brighter future. I want my little ones to be able to dream and grow and have many possibilities right here in our country.

    If I look at the national debt, the percentage of people without a job, the number of kids who have a college degree and still can’t find a job I can easily become overwhelmed at what the future looks like for myself and my children.

    Instead, I look to you. You know exactly how to turn all of those numbers around. You know the plans you have for us Lord. Plans to prosper and not to harm.

    Thank you Lord Jesus that I get to live in a country where I am allowed to vote, pray, have religious freedom and opportunity.

    Bless both candidates and may they both be aware of YOUR GREAT WORKS-and realize that they are only able to do the job that is set before one of them because of and ONLY because of YOU.

    Cassie says:

    Lord, please bring our president into a saving knowledge of You if he does not already possess it (Rom. 1:16, 10:9). May He be able to say that You truly are the one true God of his salvation (Ps 18:2). May he not know Your wisdom merely as an outsider, but know You Who is the God of all wisdom (1Cor 1:24, Col 2:4). Accomplish Your will, Lord. Empower us to make disciples of Jesus Christ of all nations and use this year’s administration to do so in ways we’ll never begin to understand, for You are the One who uses all of those in authority to accomplish what You desire even those who don’t know You and have no idea they’re doing it. (Matt 28:19-20, Rom. 13:1, Habbakuk and Nahum)

    Gretchen says:

    Father, Your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. Oh, Lord, as we walk in the way of Your laws, we wait for You. (Is 26:8) To You, O Lord, we lift up our souls. Oh, my God, in You we trust – let us not be put to shame; let not our enemies exult over us. (Ps 25:1-2). Oh, Lord, the troubles of our heart are enlarged as we grieve for our country. As we elect a new president tomorrow, we pray that You would cause our new leader to turn to You and be saved and to enter in to a radical, life-changing relationship where they are lead by the Savior, Jesus Christ. Have mercy on us, Lord. Thy will be done. May You be high and lifted up in every corner of this nation and take Your rightful place as the One, True King. It is in the all powerful name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

  45. 145
    Heather says:

    Dear Lord, I thank you that you have allowed me to live in this country where I am (mostly) allowed to worship you in the way I see fit. As the elections come, I want to pray for wisdom for our new ruler. Give it generously, Lord. (James 1). No matter who is elected, it will be an uphill climb and they will need your help. (Isaiah 41) Help them keep their eyes on you and have a heart for you.
    In Jesus Name, Amen.

    I know I could clutter this up with my thoughts. Your thoughts are higher than ours. Your wisdom wiser. My prayer is simple. We see the outside- the surface level. We see the here and now. You see the heart, the now and forevermore. I pray for this man, for our nation to be given over to Your eternal plan, that you may fully receive Your glory.

    Most gracious Heavenly Father,
    I thank you for blessing me to live in this great country. I am heartily sorry that our country has departed from reverence for you. I humbly pray that you will appoint for us a godly President, one who will turn to you for wisdom and guidance, one who will seek your face.

I pray that he will constantly remember that all Heaven and Earthnwill witness the choice that He makes. O that He would choose life, that He and His descendants might live!

    Heavenly Father, In the name of Jesus,I bind to our President a spirit of humility and repentance that he may bow his knee to the true King of Kings, repent of all wickedness, seek Your face and lead our country to do the same so that our President and country would be forgiven and the principles of this land based on You would be restored and our land healed. I pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.

    Oh Holy one of Israel, I lift up the heart of our leaders and ask their hearts be in your hands and that you will direct them like a watercourse wherever you please (Prov. 21:1). You are God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness, make your light shine in their hearts, to give them the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ (2 Cor. 4:6) I pray that they would humble themselves under Your mighty hand that You may lift them up in due time.(1 Peter 5:6) You alone are Holy, You alone are Worthy, to You be the glory and power forever Amen.
