Father God, in the Name of Jesus, I give you thanks and praise for those you’ve placed in authority throughout this great land.
I pray, first of all, for the President and all of his cabinet and advisors, for all senators and representatives, governors, and law enforcement. Any person who has a position of authority. Give to them wisdom and discernment so they will know how to lead this nation in a godly and dignified way. May they be surrounded by men and women who love you and your kingdom. May they hear your voice and have the courage to always do the right thing, regardless.
Protect them from any physical, mental, or spiritual attack. Let every weapon formed against them be squashed. May each lie spoken in secret be exposed and let truth prevail.
Father, give to our leaders the ability to lead in a righteous manner. May the spirit of wisdom and revelation fill their hearts and minds. Influence and inspire them today, and may they know their labor is not in vain. Anoint their thoughts with your peace, and may they rise above the opinions, accusations, and threats of any enemy, both foreign and domestic, to govern in a way that pleases you.
I pray for unity among our leaders. Not so much that they’d agree with each other on every issue, but rather set aside their personal opinions and ambitions for the greater good. That you would be glorified throughout the land.
As in the days of old, when Jonah preached to the great city of Nineveh and the king of the land led the nation in true repentance to God, may it be so today throughout this great nation. May the spirit of repentance and supplication prevail in the land.
And may this be a time like no other in history, a time of revival and great deliverance.
Lord, heal our land.
I pray also for all those in spiritual authority. May they have your heart as their closest advisor, and may they also have close companions that will love them and help watch over them in truth and love.
Keep them from the evil one. May discouragement be far from them and remind them often their labor is not in vain.
Help them to lead your church with wisdom from on high and divine insight. Open your word to each person who is called to preach. Raise up warriors who will stand in the face of adversity and opposition to boldly proclaim your will.
Anoint, O God, mighty prophets who will discern the signs of the times and bring clarity to the chaos that’s running amok.
You have invited us, saint and sinner alike, to come boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Well, this land needs mercy and grace.
Thank you for hearing my cry.
