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!

    Eph 3:17-19 (Goodnews)

    17 and I pray that Christ will make his home in your hearts through faith. I pray that you may have your roots and foundation in love, 18 so that you, together with all God’s people, may have the power to understand how broad and long, how high and deep, is Christ’s love. 19 Yes, may you come to know his love although it can never be fully known and so be completely filled with the very nature of God.

    In the precious name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

    Heavenly Father,

    I come before you this election morning with butterflies in my stomach every time that I think about this election. I think I know how important it is, but I know you know much beyond that and I’m so glad. I’m so glad that You can see beyond today (Psalm 147:5); I’m so glad that YOU are our Rock, our Fortress, and our Deliverer (Psalm 62); I’m so glad that You love us beyond my own comprehension (Eph. 3:17-19); I’m so glad that You are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8); I’m so glad that You will still be on Your throne no matter who gets elected today (Rev. 5:13). I love You, I love You, I love You.

    In Jesus Name.

I pray also that the eyes of his heart may be enlightened in order that he may know the hope to which he was called.

    Dear God, the Living God, who made heaven and earth, hear my prayer. You alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. I lift this prayer for the president of the United States that he will have the gift of wisdom to lead this country in the way of justice. Help him to act with honor. Bring peace to the people, and give guidance to the president to stand up for the afflicted and those with needs. Help him to always remember that You are near to all who call on You, to all who call on You in truth. May his center always be found in You and his love of You and others. I humbly pray these words in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

    Gracious Lord,
    You hear us when we pray and today we join together to lift up our nation and this election. I am comforted to know that you are the one who raises up leaders and puts them in office. I pray for a man of integrity and truth to lead our nation in these difficult times. I claim the words of Matthew 18:20 from The Message: “Take this most seriously: A yes on earth is yes in heaven; a no on earth is no in heaven. What you say to one another is eternal. I mean this. When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.”
    In Jesus Holy Name,

I pray for purity of heart as he leads our nation. May he keep his eyes fixed on you, not swerving to the right or left, keeping his feet from evil (Proverbs 4:27). May he be sensitive and open to your lead, Lord, and accept godly counsel. Thank you Father, in Jesus’ name…

    Dear Sovereign Lord over all,

    We pray that the man placed in that Oval Office is planted there by You, for the display of Your splendor. Let him be an oak of righteousness, showing Your glory to our nation and to the world. I ask for a protecting garb of humility, that he would take on the nature of a servant to this country and to his family and most of all to You. As a direct result of his presidency, I ask that more and more people would come to profess faith in your saving grace. I pray that he would be humble and obedient towards You, and protected and lifted up in return. Lord Jesus, bless our President. Let Him fear you and walk in your ways.

    In the powerful name of King Jesus, Amen.

    Alicia says:

    To my Father in Heaven, the One who set the foundations of the earth, the One who set up the sky like a canopy –

    Lord, simply put – we need you. You have said in your word that in our time of need, we can come to You and cry out to you in our affliction, and You will hear and save. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You. (2 Chron 20: 9 & 12) I will choose to believe you in this moment: that You see us, You know how far we have strayed, and You are entirely faithful and capable of healing our land.

    And now, come near to us as we elect a leader. May the results be clear on who You have brought to rule over this country for the next 4 years. LORD, may this man discover your laws and have the boldness to bring this country back to You in repentance. In the middle of huge, complex problems, strength His dependance on you. May he cry out to You, may You answer him and tell him great and hidden things that he has not known (Jer. 33:3). Oh Lord, You are bringing about a much better Kingdom than any man has ever known – and I ache for that day. But today is what I have and this is my prayer: May every statute of our new president that honors You proposer … and may he seek repentance in every statute that dishonors You.

    And may we, your children, say in the midst of the results – “As for me, how good it is to be near God.” Ps. 73)

    God, Father and King of all people and nations, we lift up our new leader. Let him fear you as he embarks on important decisions and policies (Psalm 111:10). Give him wisdom, discernment and judgment (1 Kings 3:5). Let him be poor in his own spirit, mourn for injustice, meek, hunger and thirst for righteousness, merciful, pure in heart and a pacemaker (Matthew 5:3-9). Surround him, his staff, his family with your peace and love and righteousness. Let this be the beginning of a new awakening as a nation to You. In fear, reverence, obedience, dependence and love.

On the verge of this election, focus is drawn to the left or right, so we re-focus and set our eyes on YOU. We know YOU are mindful of us and this election. YOU God, crown our Beloved President with YOUR glory and honor. YOU made our Beloved President to have rule over our us and our United States of America. Our allegiance to YOU will not waver. We trust YOU and believe YOUR Spirit, in our Beloved President, will soar. We focus on YOU and YOUR majestic Name forever more. YOU made our Beloved President in YOUR image, do through him, for YOUR NAME and Kingdom’s sake, more than we can imagine. In the mighty, powerful, Name above all names, Jesus. Amen.

    Nicki Bishop says:

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    As we pray for our nation today, we lift our President up to you. Thank you that You are the Lord of all, and that Your hand is on Your people, Lord. You said, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes (Pr. 21:1).” Lord, may You seek for Yourself a man after Your own heart to be over your people (1 Sam 13:14). We pray for him to be a mighty man of valor, a man of war (not ignoring his spiritual duty to cover our nation in prayer–diligent to deal in situations and not to sit idly by), prudent in speech, and that you, Lord, are with him (1 Sam. 16:18). You said, “Mercy and truth preserve the king, and by lovingkindness he upholds his throne.” We pray for all of these traits in our leader as well as the deepest humility, the absence of pride, so that his position will be on Your side, O Lord, and that you will not be forced to oppose him, but rather give grace (Ja 4:6, Pr. 3:34).
    We pray that the President of our nation would dwell in your secret place, abide under the shadow of the Almighty, and that he will say of You, Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in Him I will trust.’ Lord, we pray that our President would set his love upon You, that You will deliver him, You will set him on high because he has known Your name. We pray that he will call upon You, and You will answer him–You will be with him in trouble; You will deliver him and honor him, with long life You will satisfy him and show Him your salvation (Ps. 91).
    It is in Jesus’ precious name that we ask you, Lord. Amen.

    Pam Seipp says:

    Heavenly father, thank you for the love and freedom you have given us through your son Jesus christ.

    As we prepare to elect a new leader for our country, we kneel and pray that you may strengthen and guide him with power through your spirit. We pray that you keep him established in his faith and convictions so that he may use honest observations and deep devotion to rightfully focus all decions for our country and the future of your children.

    We pray that Christ dwells in hish heart through faith, and that he share the love of christ with our nation. We pray that you also keep us established in our religion so that we continue to focous on faith, hope, and charity.

    We pray that you give us strength to support this leader and all leaders. To open the day this day in prayer, we remind our new leader as well as ourselves that the Lord remembers eery labor done in love.

    Finally, forgive us for any neglect or disrespect we may have previously shown leaders. Guide us to conduct ourselves honorably and prosper under new leadership and fulfill your purpose.

    We pray in the name of your Son, our Lord. Amen

    Connie says:

    Lord give us rulers who will behave wisely and give heed to the blameless way. Men and women who will walk in integrity and with a blameless heart. I pray they will set no base or wicked thing before their eyes. That they would hate the work of them who turn aside from the right path.

    Lord cause them to abhor a perverse heart and despise the evil person or thing.

    May they have no time for those who slander and refuse to tolerate those who have a haughty look and a proud and arrogant heart. Truth and humility Lord!!

    Lord, raise up leaders who look with favor upon the faithful of the land. May they have no place in their administration for anyone who works deceit or who tells lies. May they work to root up all the wicked in the land, that our country will once again bring honor to the Lord.

    I lift up our new President to you. I ask that you would give him a safe journey as he leads us for the next four years. Father, we ask that you would keep their families safe. Especially, the little ones whether they are his own children or grandchildren, place a hedge about them protecting their hearts from all the ugly talk. Give the people trusted with protecting them great wisdom as they watch for danger. We know our leader will face choices, help him to choose your way everytime.

    Sovereign Lord,
    I petition You as we prepare to chose the next leader for the next four years. I pray that they would seek wisdom (Prov.4), as they make decisions for our country that they would apply this in all decision making not just looking to please man but understanding that our country needs more “Godly leadership”. You are the God our country needs to return to and I pray that through this new leader You would do a mighty work in this country that would make us a redeeming light to this world (Matt 5:14) through this new leadership. (Jer. 29:11) I trust in the plans that you have for this country. Amen

    Rhonda says:

    May the President accept your words and store up your commands. May he turn his ear to wisdom and apply his heart to understanding. May he call out for insight and look for it as silver and search for it as for hidden treasure. May he fear you and find your knowledge. Please give him wisdom and knowledge and understanding. (Pro 2:1-6). Amen

    Michelle says:

    Dear Lord, I pray that you will guide our President with full hands on him. Please teach him that YOU are the One he should look to. I pray that You will not let him lead us based on the whims of the 4 winds, and certainly not based on pressures from powerful people who do not follow You. With grace and love and mercy, teach our President that the path to wisdom and great leadership is by earnestly seeking to follow You. Proverbs 1:7


  29. 379
    Allison says:

    Lord, I ask for our next President to be a trustworthy, man of great integrity and character. Your word says that “Unless you are faithful in small matters, you wont be faithful in large ones. If you cheat even a little, you wont be honest with greater responsibility.” (Luke 16:10) I pray the man elected today would be faithful in the little things in his personal life, political life, and our nations “life”…if he is tempted to cheat or cut a corner Lord, bring him to Your word and help he to do what is right in Your eyes Lord!

    1 Samuel 2:1-2,7-10 (NIV)
    “My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance. [2] “There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. [7] The Lord sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts. [8] He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. “For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s; on them he has set the world. [9] He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. “It is not by strength that one prevails; [10] those who oppose the Lord will be broken. The Most High will thunder from heaven; the Lord will judge the ends of the earth. “He will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.”

  31. 381
    Letha says:

    Dear Sovereign God, Though sometimes a mystery to my human mind, I believe Proverbs 21:1 (NLT). “The Lord can control a king’s mind as he controls a river; he can direct it as he pleases.” So. for our president I’m asking that he continually be directed to a relationship with You that is intimate and unshaken. I pray that You gift him with an integrity in his leadership skills, so much so that it can only be said that he leads with a deep and abiding godly wisdom that is unfathomably explained to the human mind except to say, “This is of The Lord.” I pray also for Your protecting hand to envelop him and his family. Above all else, I pray that You, Father God, are glorified in each and every decision that is made.

  32. 382
    A Kes says:

    Lord you are in charge of this election – you already know the outcome…You change the times and seasons; You remove kings and raise them up, You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding (Dan 2:21)…I pray these things for our nations leaders today. In Your Precious and Holy name Amen

    Father, David cried out to you in Psalm 27:13 “I remain confident that I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.” And so I too cry out, and remain confident that I shall see the GOODness of you Lord in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    Rhonda Curran says:

    Dear Daddy God, I pray that you send your Holy Spirit to enfold our new President in Your presence and to draw him into sweet intimacy with You. I pray that you send your holy angels to encamp about him and his family to protect them from harm and the fiery darts of satan. I pray that You put in his heart a passion and desire to be a servant to this nation and fill him with the godly wisdom to accomplish Your will. Father, surround him with advisors who are full of wisdom, faith and the Holy Spirit. In Jesus name Amen.

    Father God, Almighty King of Heaven and earth, All powerful, all knowing. Merciful and Just,
    We bow before you in humble gratitude acknowledging your Majesty. You alone are worthy of all, glory, power, and praise. Thank you for your Word that stands throughout all eternity. Praise You for your mighty works. We pray that our President would trust in you Lord and do good; that he would dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture, that he would delight himself and you and would be given the desires of your heart. We ask that our president would commit his way to you Lord; he would trust in you and that you would do this; You would make his righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noon day sun. We pray that our president would be still before you Lord and wait patiently for you; that he would not fret when men succeed in their ways, and they carry out their wicked schemes. Thank you Lord You are able to do more than we imagine. We surrender and we trust you and we praise you! Amen

    My Sovreign Strong Lord,
    My prayer lifted up to You is for the President of the United States. I pray that he looks to You first in all he does and in all he says. May he lead us as an example of humilty. Please guide him, through Your will, to lead us, to show those of us who have to help those of those who do not, to Your glory. I pray that he seeks Your wisdom and not the wisdom of the world. Mostly Father, I pray he seeks and receives Your peace. That which can only come through faith in Christ.
    I ask all of this in the Mighty Name of Jesus! Amen!

    Father in Heaven…

    I pray for our President, that he might not boast in his wisdom, his riches, nor his strength, but that he would, instead, boast in his knowledge of You. Lord, you delight in kindness, justice, and mercy, and, most wonderfully, You delight in making yourself known to your children. Draw our President to his knees and close to your heart and minister the kingdom to him in way that cannot be denied. Amen.

    God in Heaven,

    You are holy and sovereign. We are grateful that you hear our petitions. Father, remind us today that Your sovereign purpose will be fulfilled through whomever this nation elects as president. Just as your glory and fame was known during Pharoah’s rule, let it be known in our country throughout the next four years. (Ex. 9:16) You set leaders in position and control the course of world events (Dan. 2:21), so we will trust your plan and providence. Give our next president the wisdom and knowledge to govern well.

    Dear Heavenly Father we come with bent knees and burndened hearts as we prepare to elect our new President and Vice-President. May they be men of integrity and honor. May they love you and seek your face first each morning. Search them and know their hearts. May our next president be filled with your spirit and lead with truth that upholds your standards of your word. For your word is living and active. May our president and vice president not turn to other things that are not pleasing in your sight. We pray that there will be no other idols before them.
    May our new elected officials be someone who trusts in you. May they delight in you so that they will have the heart of your desires.
    May our new president be a man of faith who leads while earnestnesly seeking you. May he be a man whose name is written in the book of life.
    May our president lead our military with dignity and honor as as a commander in chief. May He know that you are the great and almighty commander.
    May each one in his family come to know you as their personal Savior. May his family be a light of beacon in this world of darkness….Abba Father, we pray that our new elected officials will uphold the values of one as in the marriage union between one husband and one wife. We pray that they uphold the value of life that you place in the womb.
    We pray that your president will be a leader within his own family. We pray that they would be students of your word. May your will be done. In Jesus name we pray Amen

    Heavenly Father, thank you for new starts and for new mercies every morning. I pray this Election Day for the man who you have chosen to run this great nation. I pray for his faith that it would be real and authentic faith in Jesus as the truth and the light. I pray for your wisdom for him, that he would ask for it with certainty that you are gracious to give wisdom. I pray that this man would fight the good fight and learn to protect his faith while keeping a good conscious and not reject these- and in doing so will not shipwreck his faith or the country you are trusting him with. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisable, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. (1tim 17-19)
