What is wrong with America goes well beyond politics & economics. It is a spiritual sickness which infects the USA. No politician, no election, no piece of legislation, will cure spiritual sickness. We must appeal to a Higher Authority for that kind of healing. Please join me each Sunday this summer in praying for America*.
We are to pray for our government and our leaders. In 1 Timothy 2:1-4, Paul writes “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and [c]reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
Therefore, I ask you to join me this week in praying for our government leaders – that God direct them in all things according to His ways and His will.
Prayer for This Week: Heavenly Father, save and have mercy upon all leaders, politicians and civil authorities of this world and our nation. I especially hold up to You President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and all members of their Administration; Chief Justice Roberts and all members of the Supreme Court, as well as all federal, state, and local judges; Speaker Ryan and all members of the House of Representatives; Majority Leader McConnell and all members of the Senate; as well as all Governors, state legislators and local authorities. Grant them all wisdom and courage in their duties and decisions. Block any and all plots, schemes and ambitions that run counter to Your good and perfect will or that threaten the unalienable rights you have given to us. In all things, may we and our leaders always follow Your ways above worldly ways. In the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
- Grant, O Lord, blessings and mercies to all current members of our armed forces. Protect them and keep them safe. Likewise, bless and have mercy on our veterans. Watch over them and provide for their needs.
- Bless, O Lord, and have mercy on those who serve as police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, and other first responders. Watch over them, protect them and give them wisdom, courage, and strength in their duties.
- Remember, O Lord, and have mercy upon the whole clergy of Your Church in America and abroad. Grant them the wisdom and courage needed to boldly preach Your Word and to do Your will during these perilous times.
In the Name of our Lord, Our Savior, and our God, Jesus the Messiah, we pray these and all prayers. Amen.
