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!

    Oh Sovereign Lord, the Creator of the Universe, the One who holds all things in His hands, I come to you on bended knee asking for your grace to flow over our nation. I stand on your word with assurance that you are in control of this Election. Prov. 8:14-16 tells us that “Counsel and sound judgement are yours…that you have understanding and power and that by you kings reign, and rulers make laws that are just. Father I pray that you would place as President the man who would rule with your wisdom. I pray that you would give him understanding that could come from you alone. I pray that he would be unafraid to stand up for what is right. I pray that as Romans 12:12 says that he would be “joyful in hope (for our country), patient in affliction (when hard times come), and faithful in prayer(every day…before any decision).
    In Your Son’s precious name I pray,

    Dear Loving and Merciful Father, First, I thank You for the privilege of living in a country that allows it’s citizens to freely vote for their leaders. The election is not out of the realm of your control, and I pray that in Your infinite wisdom you will surround those elected with people who love your Word. Bless our leaders with sound wisdom.

    Raise up the leader for our great nation for such a time as this. Convict his heart each morning as he awakes with your leadership and your precepts as the foundation for all decisions he will make for our country that day. Knowing all people cannot be made happy at once, show him Your ways and Your direction for this nation and cause him to use that as his guide and standard. Holy Spirit, speak to him in clear ways and help his heart and mind always remain tender towards your guidance and his desire to remain to always do what is right in the eyes of The Lord. In the busy requirements, help him to seek your word and your presence daily, never straying from You and Your Word. Bless him and his family – bless them to be a blessing to this nation. In Jesus’s Precious Name. AMEN

    Terry Bobbitt says:

    Heavenly Father, Your Word says that You, O Lord, shall endure forever and the remembrance of Your name to all generations. You will arise and have mercy on Zion, for the time to favor her, Yes, the set time has come. For Your servants take pleasure in her stones, and show favor to her dust. So the nations shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth Your glory. For the Lord shall build up Zion, He shall appear in His glory. He shall regard the prayer of the destitute, and shall not despise their prayer. This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord. For He looked down from the height of His sanctuary, from heaven the Lord viewed the earth to hear the groaning of the prisoner, to release those appointed to death, to declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and His praise in Jerusalem. (Ps 102: 12-21) Thank you Father that you are in control of the kings of the nations and that you will keep us in perfect peace as we keep our minds fixed on You. In Jesus precious Name.

    Dear Gracious and Merciful Father, I pray for a great oupouring of your Spirit on America today. We ask for your wisdom and guidance in all that we do. I pray for the man that you put into the position of President of the United States, that he will be filled with your Spirit:
    ‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says,
    ‘That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind;
    And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    And your young men shall see visions,
    And your old men shall dream dreams;
    Acts 2:17
    and that he will bring glory and honor to you in all that he does:
    20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
    In the Loving Name of Jesus our Shepherd we pray!

    Susan says:

    Our precious Father in Heaven, we thank thee for all our bountiful blessings – some of which we are not even aware. One blessing in particular is the right to live in freedom and being able to worship you. Another blessing, on this particular day, being able to vote for our person/persons of choice to run the government of this wonderful country. We pray that thy will be done Lord. We need and desire a strong leader that will turn this country back towards you. We pray for solid victory for that person – in Jesus’s name who taught us to pray together – Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed it be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but DELIVER US FROM EVIL. For THINE is the KINGDOM, the POWER, and the GLORY FOREVER. Amen

    Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Romans 13:1

    Father God, I pray for the man that will become the leader of our great nation. Constantly be with him and watch over him, Father. Let his thoughts and focus be steadfast on You, for you are The Rock. Let wisdom and humility be the suit that he puts on daily. I pray he is obedient to You by walking hand-in-hand with You, putting the needs of this nation before himself and giving You all the praise for it is all Yours anyway, Father!
    In Jesus’ name, Amen!
    Phil 2:3-8

    Pamela Houston says:

    Dear Heavenly Father, We cry out to you in faith believing that our blessed land of America the Beautiful has been set apart by You for Freedom’s triumph. No matter what it looks like, we don’t walk by sight, but we who are called by Your name walk by faith. We confess that Your ways are past finding out, and Your plan will not be thwarted by mere man. Clearly, we have wandered far from your precepts and moral compass and those that are wise and have understanding recognize this and the consequences of such prideful choices. There is no doubt our choicest comforts and the grace we have enjoyed as a nation have also come at a high price of the spilt blood of our patriots in every generation born on this, our land of liberty. We cry out to You in concert voice as we recognize our sin and hardness and we pray that Your grace and mercy will flow to usward and cause us to gain ground in liberties pursuit. We recognize we as a nation are a vanguard to Israel and to her safety as well. You most certainly will accomplish that which has been decreed for us, for our children and grandchildren and all whom You may call. Nothing ever happens by chance and that includes setting one up and taking one down in high public office. We who are saved by the precious blood of the Lamb have cried out to You, Most Holy One who reigns on High, in repentance plus faith over the sins of our fathers and in humility bow down low before the One and Only God is able to heal and save our land. We are the world’s best hope in freedom’s pursuit because of the precious blood of Jesus. May we seek the grace to honor You in all things and pray in faith, hope and love for those who will be placed in high places of leadership over our great nation and the people of America this day. May righteousness begin to exalt our nation and may sin be recognized and turned away from in individual human hearts through the change we need more than any other… a mighty move of Your precious Holy Spirit, as we ask this through the power of the Spirit, the Word of God and the blood of Jesus, Amen and AMEN.

    Marsha Bauldry says:

    Dear Heavenly Father, You are our healer, you are always with us and I pray that your will be done today in this election. I pray that our country will wake up to the fact that we cannot make it without You! So many have turned their backs on you, but we know that is why our country is struggling. I pray that You will lead us into a Third Great Awakening. I pray 2nd Corinthians 3:17 “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”. I also pray 2nd Chronicles 7:14. May America elect a man today who will hold up these truths, that he will be a man of integrity. honesty and one who doesn’t take a step without your guidance! I pray this prayer in the precious name of Jesus!

    Donna says:

    Almighty God,
    I humbly ask you to touch our President with your presence. May he live a wisely and fair, a devout and disciplined life. May he have a strong and steadfast belief in the trustworthy message he was taught; then he will be able to encourage others with right teaching and show those who oppose it where they are wrong.
    In Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen

    Melissa George says:

    Great God, my heart crys out to you this morning. I come before You, humbly, asking for You to be with our Nation today. I lift up both men to You, they both say that they are not evangelical Christians. So my first request is that you soften their hearts to the message of Your saving grace. I ask that You put people in their paths that will speak truth to them. I pray that they will both come to know You as Lord and Savior. And then lead their families to You.
    Father, I pray for the man that will be our President. I ask that he takes this office humbly and with great respect for You, our heritage and the principles that this great Nation was founded on. Lord, I know that we have turned our backs on You and I ask for forgiveness. Please spare us from Your wrath and allow us the opportunity to bring ourselves back under Your loving hand.
    I ask that our President humble himself before You, our Nation and the world. I ask that he surround himself with men and women that will speak truth to him and not just say the things that he wants to hear.
    Lord, I think of Nehemiah and how You led him as he rebuilt the wall. Lord, please be with us as we rebuild our Nation. Be with our President as he works to restore unity, strength and integrity in the United States.
    Thank you, Father, for allowing me to come before you. Thank you for the work You will do through us as we continue to pray for our President and our Country.
    In Jesus most Holy and precious name, Amen

Let us help him fulfill the obligation and responsibility to our nation. With prayer and understanding, let us unite ourselves to the one purpose of living a life in which “IN GOD WE TRUST”. Amen

    Diane in Flagstaff says:

    Oh merciful Heavenly Father,
    I pray that, like Solomon, our president will seek wisdom from You over riches, fame, or long life I pray that you will give him an obedient heart to judge between the people and to discern between good and evil. (1 Kings 3:10-12.) I further pray, that each day that he has power in our land, when he hears your voice he will will not harden his heart. (Psalm 95:8) Lead us in paths of righteousness for Your names’ sake. (Psalm 23:3)

    Joyce says:

    Dear Heavenly Father, Precious Savior and Creator,
    I thank you for this great nation you have blessed and protected. I ask you to forgive us for turning away from You and taking Your blessings for granted. I ask You to see the remnant who love You and seek Your face and hear our cries for our nation. Let us truly seek Your forgiveness and honor You with our lives, our love, our devotion and obedience. I ask You to bless voters today with the wisdom and obedience to do as You would lead and direct. Let us have the spirit of Psalm 1 to walk not in the counsel of the ungodly but to delight in the law of the Lord. I pray for the peace of Israel, peace for Jerusalem and that the United States of America would always befriend and honor this precious country that is the apple of Your eye.

    Carolee Fisher says:

    Most precious Father God. I pray for our next President that he would come to know you as his personal Savior and dwell in the shelter of the Most High and rest in the shadow of the Almighty. May You be his refuge and fortress and put his trust in You. I pray that You save him from the fowler’s snare and the deadly pestilence. Cover him with Your feathers and may he find refuge under Your wings. I pray that he loves You, acknowledgs Your name, and calls upon You. You will rescue him, protect him, answer him, be with him in trouble, deliver him, honor him. With long life You will satisfy him and show him Your salvation. (Psalm 91). In the power of the holy name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

    Jeremiah 15:19-20
    Therefore this is what The Lord says: “If you Mr. President repent, I will restore you that you may serve me; if you utter worthy, not worthless, words, you Mr. President will be my spokesman. Let this people turn to you, but you must not turn to them. I will make you a walk to this people, a fortified wall of bronze; they will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you to rescue and save you,” declares The Lord.
    Deuteronomy 30:19-20
    This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you Mr. President that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love The Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For The Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
    In the name of Jesus I pray this for our President.

May our President treat foreigners with the same loving care, reverently respect God, our God, serve Him, hold tight to Him back up God’s promises with the authority of Your name. You are our praise! You are our God! May our President’s walk with You LORD be so close His ears shall hear a voice behind him saying, “This is the Way, walk in it” when our President turns to the right or when he turns to the left.

    Father, please guide our leaders. Grant them wisdom in every decision they make. Please let them be a people who seeks your will before every decision is made. Let them realize the magnitude of decisions made. Please be with their families. Bless them with good health and strength.
    Father, please help us to remember to pray daily for those in authority over us.

You know your plans for him – plans to prosper and not to harm, plans to give him hope and a future. I ask that he be filled with the need to pray about every decision and that his heart will overflow with mercy for all people. May he look past himself and understand what is right and just and fair in your eyes.

    Dear Lord,
    Let the words of our President’s mouth and the meditations of his heart be acceptable in Your sight, and may he look to You as his Strength and Redeemer. May he cry out to You for discernment and seek understanding as for treasure. May he walk uprightly, so You will be a shield to him, and guard his path. And help our President to be kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving of one another.
    (Psalm 19:14;Proverbs 2:3-4,7-8; Ephesians 4:32) Above all, dear Lord, lead him to salvation. Protect him, Lord, and protect our nation. Help us, as believers, to humble ourselves and pray, and seek Your face, and turn from our wicked ways. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

    In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    As this nation chooses our next President today, may Your love and mercy abide, for You are Ruler of all the nations under heaven and earth. For our next President, I pray (Micah 6) God, You have showed us what is good, and what do you Lord require of us? May our next President act justly and love mercy and walk humbly with You God; and (James 4) may he walk humbly, submit himself to You, resist the devil and draw near to You. May he be a man of integrity, who greets You each morning with a humble and loving heart, who faithfully prepares to do Your will as he leads our nation. Give him strength, courage and wisdom. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen

    Gracious Father, I come to You in trust and belief as I lift up the next president of America. I pray this man will approach You with a bended knee (Phil 2:5-7). May this man be or come to a place of fearing You (Isa 33:6). Give this man wisdom (James 1:5)and may he have a great understanding and discernment of all wisdom that is given him by others.May our next president be a man that loves and lives Your Word (Psalm 119:18)through personal and daily searching of Scripture. I ask these things in Your mighty and powerful name, Jesus! Amen

    I pray that our President will have a yearning and a desire to be a follower of You! To look to you for the answers our country needs and not to the ways of the world. Lord, help him to have wise and godly advisors. “For the heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out” Proverb 18:15. I ask this is Jesus’ name; Amen.

    Precious Heavenly Father,

    I pray that when our president is afraid, distressed, or needs strength that He will turn to You and that You will give him the strength he needs to do this incredibly difficult job. (Isaiah 41:10, I Chron. 16:11, Phil. 4:13). When times are tough and he faces persecution, give him the endurance he needs so that You can work in his life to produce the qualities he needs to govern. (James 1: 2-4). Help him to always realize where to turn to get the strength and endurance he needs to finish well. Help him to realize that You and You alone are the one who can can provide him with what he needs to lead and govern.

    Oh how we need you Father.

    Carol from Coopersburg says:

    Dear Father God who is Creator and above all, have mercy on our nation please. You are so good to us even though as a country we seem to have fallen away from you. Thank you that you love us and hear our prayers. Thank you that you fight our battles for us.
    Father, we have 2 men vying to lead our nation: Lord, neither know You; yet I will not fear as You tell us that the heart of the king is in Your hand. I pray against everything, in the name of Jesus, that would come against the leader You allow in place working for good for all!!! The blood of Jesus covers Yours Lord. Please cover our nation and protect us from every evil. Have mercy on us and drive the evil out of our leaders’ hearts and out of our hearts. Oh Lord please drive it out by Your love and not Your wrath. Heal our leader Lord, by having him receive Your love forever. I pray that the USA become united in Christ, that our president and all people live, love, and lead for Christ, and that we can be Your light to the dark places in our families, communities, nation, and the world. All things are possible in You/through You God. Thank you that You will never leave us, your children, or forsake us and that we can trust Your love every moment when we follow You. Oh, Lord, that we would unite in Your love, as a nation and do Your perfect will rather than what we mostly do. Oh that we would be obedient to You to receive Your full blessings!
    In the Name above all Names, I AM, in the name of Jesus I pray. Amen

    Heavenly Father,

    We are such a divided nation. Oh how I pray that our president will seek to unite us. I pray that he leads by example. That he will never be a respecter of people. Please help him to care for all the people and that he doesn’t consider what race, nationality, class, or even political party they belong to. Help him to strive to bring us together, not divide us. (James 2:1-13)

    In Your precious Holy name we pray.

    Dear God, Thank you Father, that You love America. Oh God we were founded on You, Father, Your word and Your ways. Our nation continually heads toward decline, Father . . . and it b r e a k s our hearts. Oh God, yes our current president needs salvation, but it needs a leader whose heart is for You and for Your ways. Quickly. Our prosperity has turned us away from You. We are arrogant and selfseekers, Lord. Oh God forgive us. May the ones who love Your name, rise, to stand firm in their convictions, with humility of spirit, aiding to the change we so desperately need. And may our ‘little’ be a lot in Your eyes, bless it Lord, multiply it please. We have no doubt, that all things are possible with You. Hinder Satan from his rampantness across this nation Lord. Bring us back into fullness of You. And Lord help us to trust You, no matter the outcome of todays election. Your ways are not our ways, but plant us, all Christians – firm in You. May we draw near to You, and stay there. We love You Lord, help us Father, hear our pleading prayers, in Jesus name.

    I pray that our President not be ashamed to bend the knee to your authority, knowing that He who calls him to humble himself is faithful, and will lift him up in due time. May we as a nation cast all our care on You, resting in the assurance that you care for us. Your steadfast love endures forever. Amen.

    Oh Gracious Heavenly Father,

    You have told us that you oppose the proud but give grace to the humble (James 4:6). When you are the leader of the free world, the temptation to be proud must be enormous. Please be with our president to resist this temptation. Help him to walk humbly with You. Help him always to recognize that he needs You. (Matthew 5:3)

    We depend on you so!

    My Amazing Creator of all things,
    Your children come before you now praying that a mighty work will be done in the life of our new President of the United States. Lord we lift him up to You knowing full well that You have ordained this very moment in time to fulfill Your perfect purpose. Lord I pray that he will drop to his knees every morning to thank you for all you are and all you will do and that he will be led by the Holy Spirit daily. Lord that he would be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the rightous life that God desires. Please allow him to see how important it is to get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and HUMBLY accept the word( that I pray is planted in him) which can save him and all of of us! Father that he would believe in Your Word that 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 forgive their sin and will heal their land!!!!!” We are believing and anticipating Your greatness Father!!!!!
    In your precious and saving Son’s name, JESUS…AMEN AND AMEN!!!!!!

    Sovereign God,
    We ask that your will be done today in regard to our National Election of President and other leaders.
    I ask that they be God-fearing and recognize that they are accountable to Him for each decision they make (Pr 9:10). I pray that the man chosen will recognize his own inadequacy and seek God’s will in every decision (Pr 3:5-8). I ask you, Lord, to plant a desire for your Word in this man’s heart, that he may seek you through Your Word. (Ps 119:11). We need a President who values your teachings. May He respect and honor the guidelines of the Ten Commandments and the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    Father, we ultimately ask for revival in our Nation.
    In the precious Name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

    Heavenly Father,
    I pray that as our future president makes plans for our great nation, that you would guide his thoughts and his actions. May truth be of utmost importance as he speaks and gives direction. I pray that he would seek you above all else knowing that you will bless a nation who serves you alone as Lord of all things.
