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!

    Almighty, All Powerful Living God and Heavenly Father from who all authority is given… *please remove the scales from our eyes and let us see what a healthy dependency should be. Help us to restore our faith in the truth, “In God we trust.” May this coming election be a beginning in turning us about from our waywardness. Please give America another chance. We need You in our lives. Do Your mighty will within this election so our first steps are easier in turning back this country toward You. Begin your new work for America even in me today. Revive our nation’s hearts to want, need and depend upon You.

    (Psalm 127:1) We bow first to Your authority and will over us as we do as You command us to do in Your Word to pray for our leaders,(1 Timothy 2:1-2, 3)(Prov. 21:1) to seek You first (Matthew 6:33)and Your kingdom and all Your righteousness will be added unto us, to humble come to You (James 4:10) and (2 Chronicles 7:14) and cry out to You to hear our prayers (Jeremiah 33:3)and take full control of our nation and leaders (Proverbs 19:21)and us as Your humble people, earnestly seeking Your face and grace over our nation, we give thanks for ALL Your benefits (Psalm 103:2) and the rich inheritance we’ve been so privileged to be given bountifully and ever so abundantly. (Luke 12:48) To whom much is given, much is required. As You, Lord Jesus taught us to pray Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:9-13)

    *Almighty God, as provider of all, You have blessed us with a home called the United States of America. Please give us another chance at turning back to You. We cry for Your forgiveness. Give us another chance. Please allow this coming election to return us back to You. Help us leave our home for the next generation so they, too, will enjoy America as a God-blessed nation. Amen!

    You are so wonderful and so worthy of all our praise, thanks and glory now and forever. We bow to You alone!

    On this Election Day eve, we ask You, Lord to give us Your wisdom. You are eager to bless us and our President and all governmental leadership positions, as Your children. Help us think supernaturally with divine wisdom as we go to the polling booth tomorrow (today) and make our choices for local and state offices, Congress and the United States presidency.

    *You are the one who inspired man to seek and build a free land. It was Your Holy Word that gave direction and guidance in forming our government. Forgive us for allowing that same government to remove and separate You from our nation’s daily affairs. Please give us another chance. May this coming election be the first steps back to You. We hunger for You to once again bless America.

    *Almighty God, Your power is infinite and beyond our understanding. Forgive us for limiting You. We ask for another chance. Please begin Your mighty work and help America learn to lean hard upon You. We welcome Your leadership and blessings. Please do your perfect will in Tuesday’s elections. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Almighty God, I fall before You now and pray for my country and all the newly elected, especially our President and Vice President. From Isaiah 26 these words I pray: Our country is strong! We are surrounded by the walls of Your salvation. Please,Father, open the gates to all who are righteous; allow the faithful to enter. You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You. Lord, I will show my trust in You by obeying Your laws and I ask the same of our leaders. I pray they lean on You and You alone to lead. In Jesus mighty and magnificent name I pray. Amen!

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    I thank You, above all, that nothing that happens during, or as a result of, the elections will be a surprise to You. I pray that our president would be a mighty warrior and ride triumphantly for the cause of truth, humility and justice. I pray he would love righteousness and hate wickedness. My heart is burdened for his salvation, as one lost and bound for hell without You. I fervently pray that he would follow Jesus as the Light of the World, and never walk in darkness again, but have the light of life for himself. (Psalm 45:3,4,7; John 8:12)
    In Jesus’ name I pray,

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    We come before you today earnestly seeking your face and hand as we prepare to vote for the next leader of our great nation. Lord, we desire that you would make him a man of honesty, integrity and righteousness. A man who hates wickedness and the evils of our culture. That he would remain strong and persistent in the face of adversity and not compromise his convictions. Please help him to be courageous in his stand against evil and injustice and stand always for truth. We pray for his safety and that of his family. We know that the outcome of this election is in your control. Thy will be done.

    I ask that you would be with our president. Please help him to choose people to advise him that are righteous. Help him to always seek justice and never show partiality. Help him to never accept a bribe and to always seek Your truth (Deuteronomy 16:18-20). Watch over him as he leads our country. May Your kingdom come (Luke 11:2).

    Father God, it is your will that not one should perish but for everyone to be saved. I pray for the salvation of our president. I pray that his eyes and ears be open to the truth in your word. Turn his heart toward your truth, let him receive wholly, your redeeming love. Give him understanding. I pray that you would sever any ungodly ties, associations, and worldly principles. I pray that you would surround him with godly, wise counsel. I pray for his protection and for him to have positive influence here and around the world. I thank you that we can count on your love and faithfulness no matter who is president. I thank you that we can have peace in all circumstances knowing you are sovereign. Keep us sensitive to your presence, Lord, so we don’t have to fear. Not our will, but yours be done, Lord. In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.

    Lord of All,
    please bless our president. guide him to actions that are pure and right. (prov. 20:11) Let him set His mind, withouth even knowing why, on things above, not on earthly matters (colossians 3:2)

    and for the wife of the president, Lord may she utterly embody Prov. 31:25. Clothe her with Your Strength, and Your dignity. enable her to laugh at the days to come because she KNOWS her trust is in You and only You.

    Lord, let your love reign in all your children. and may we never cease to pray.

    Gracious Father, You knew before time began who the next president of our great United States of America would be as an outcome of this election,and we are so very grateful that we can trust You, no matter which man gets elected. We do pray, Father, that whichever man it is, that Your Holy Spirit would work in his heart and that soon, very soon after the election, that he would come to the understanding of his eternal destiny and that he would bow his knee before YOU, ask for Your forgiveness and give his heart completely to You and let You be Lord of his life as he leads our Country.

    Who keeps promises even when it hurts.
    One who is honorable with money, both his and ours.

    Heavenly all knowing Father, You have already chosen/allowed who will be the next leader of our country. I pray that our country will rise to the challenge of being a God fearing nation fully committed to Godly principles. You can use anyone…. to fulfill your purposes. May we just be onboard and open to what it is you have us to do to accomplish you will in this generation. I pray for strength and stamina for our president and will lift him up in prayer according to I Timothy. I pray that he be called to his knees daily seeking your wisdom before making decisions on our behalf. I pray also that he be called to rule in righteousness spoken about throughout the Old Testament (Isaiah 32). May it not be said about our country as it was about most of the old kings….. and (he) did evil in the sight of the Lord!. May it be as it was with David, Soloman, Jotham and Hezekiah, that he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord! …. that he is a righteous man who does what is just and right…he does not defile his neighbors wife…or oppress anyone and he follows my decrees and faithfully keeps my laws. That man is righteous (Ez 18)! Your will….. will be done, Amen

I come now asking that our President trust in You with all his heart, and lean not on his own understanding; acknowledging you in all he does, for if he does, you will direct him (Prov 3:4-7) Your way Father, is perfect; your word is proven, You are a shield to those who trust in You. (2 Samuel 22:31) Our President will receive advise from many over the next 4 years, please let him listen, and put his ultimate trust in you, not in man.
    Bless our President and Bless our Country I pray.

May our president bear good fruit and grow in knowledge of you,giving you thanks in all things.
    May he be ever mindful that you are sovereign Lord and that although man may throw the dice, it is God who controls how they land. Give our president the grace to be humble and to seek your face Lord. Provide for him supporters who will be supportive and truthful, and keep those from him that would draw him away from your truth.

    Lord, I pray that you would keep our President physically safe and healthy and guard him from the evil one. Supply his needs Lord so that He may see and be reminded of your marvelous deeds. Bless his wife Father, help her to have a noble character and to grow in your grace. And Father give them both clean hands and a pure heart so that they may receive the blessings you have for them and for our country.

    We love you Lord, we thank you and praise you for all the gifts that you provide for us and for the privilege of praying and knowing that you hear and answer prayers.

    I pray that you place the man of your choice in leadership over America, and that he will be a man of strong character, GODly convictions and courage to lead our country! As your word to Joshua was to “be strong and of good courage”, I pray that you instill these words into our new president and national leaders (both Senate and Congress).

    Oh GOD, we continue to place our trust in you alone to guide us during these dark days we are living. Bring America back to the Christian principles that we were founded on — save this nation and continue to bless us with your bounty!

    Gracious God and Heavenly Father, you are almighty, all powerful, sovereign and Lord overall. My prayer is that your will be done.

    1 Peter 5:2-4
    Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers-not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

    This is my prayer for all who will be in positions of leadership.

    It is the precious name of your Son that I ask these things, AMEN!

    Oh most merciful and wise Father, we ask that your hand would ever guide the newly-elected leader of our free country. Give to him your wisdom and the courage to lead our country, keeping ever mindful of the blessings you have already bestowed on us. Let not the citizenry ignore our responsibility to lift our new president before you, that you may guide him and direct him in all the ways of our Lord and Savior. Amen.

    Dear Father, You say in Romans 13:1 that everyone in positions of authority was placed there by you, so I know that whoever wins is YOUR choice, no matter what I thought was best. I just ask that You place Your hand on them and totally control them to do what You have planned. Please have mercy on us and remember Your children and the problems we may have from decisions they make. Your Mercy, Lord, that’s what we beg for from You. Just Your wonderful mercy.
    In Jesus precious name, amen and amen.

  33. 233

    Dear gracious Heavenly Father,
    Fill our president with the fear of the Lord and give him wisdom for every decision he makes. May he reverence You and Your ways and seek to know Your truth. give him discernment to make decisions based on Your revelation. Help him to make Godly choices. Take foolishness out of his heart and enable him to recognize error and avoid it. Open his eyes to see clearly the consequences of any anticipated behavior. We pray he will be a man who listens to godly counselors and not be a man who is unteachable. Give him the strength to reject the counsel of the ungodly and hear Your counsel above all others. We declare that although “many are the plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless the Lord’s counsel will stand.”. We pray he will do what is right rather than follow the leading of his flesh for we know that the wisdom of this world is foolishness. May he keep his eyes on You and tune his ears to hear Your voice.

    Susan Peacock says:

    Most Holy LORD we come to You with a serious request. For we have read in your word, “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in government & authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” (2 Tim 2:1-4) And You say in 2nd Chronicles 7:14, ” If My people, 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, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” So please dear Lord, cover us again with protection and turn our hearts to YOU. We know You have the hearts of kings in Your hands and You will direct them. We are asking for Your direction in our government. We need You, we need a revival in our country and we need the spirits of those in our government to be awakened to Your Holy Spirit. We need knees on the floor in somber prayer and hearts united in Christ. Ps 36 says, “Let all the faithful pray to You while You may be found; surely the rising of the mighty waters will not reach them. You are our hiding place; You will protect from trouble and surround us with songs of deliverance. Please God for those in government and for me too, instruct us and teach us in the way that we should go; counsel us and keep Your loving eye on us. Don’t turn away from us Lord. Show those who love You how to lead others to a saving knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Don’t let us be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding and must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you. Many are the woes of the wicked, but Your unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in You. So we will rejoice in You and be glad, the righteous will sing! Praise You Jesus and in your capable name we ask these things, AMEN

    Lord God, my Sovereign Father, I come to you in the mighty name of your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. By His blood, I come with confidence and boldness, and I ask that you hear my prayer. Father, your word says that you set the times for us and the exact places we would live. And you’ve placed so many of your dearly loved children right here in the USA in the year 2012. Help us to live as lights here and to be burdened to regularly pray for our President, a man you have sovereignly placed in this role. I think of Nebuchadnezzar and how you used him for your glory, to accomplish your will. Please use our President in the same way. And as you did for Nebuchadnezzar, bless him with the highest privilege of coming to know the Most High God for himself. Let it be that our president would be able to declare, like Nebuchadnezzar, “the signs and wonders which the Most High God has done” for him. It is in Jesus’ name that I lay this request at Your feet. Amen – Hebrews 4:15-16; Acts 17:26; Daniel 4

    Abba Father,
    Blessed is our President who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.

BE exalted in Your own strength. We praise and sing of Your might! In Jesus Name! Amen.
