Prayer for Our Nations Leaders

Father, we seek the peace and prosperity of our country which You have brought us to because as it prospers, we too will prosper. We lift the United States of America up to You.  We come before You to make petitions, prayers, and intercessions for our authorities and we give You thanks on behalf of all men. We pray for our government, our president, the representatives of our states and nation, and all those who influence them. We intercede for the leaders You have placed before us including mayors, judges, principals, policemen, pastors, preachers, teachers, military personnel and all those in power. We call all fathers forward to be the spiritual head of their household Lord.  We commit the leaders of our towns to the leaders of our nation into Your hands that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  This is Your will and it pleases You because You want all people to be saved and to come to know the truth.

Create in our leaders pure hearts God, and renew a right and loyal spirit within them. Give them new hearts and new spirits; remove the hearts of stone and give them hearts  of flesh. Let them love You with their whole heart, soul, and mind. Give our leaders ears to hear Your voice and eyes to see Your beauty and love.

We pray our leaders do not conform to the pattern of this world, but are transformed by the renewing of their minds so they may know what Your good and acceptable and perfect will is. If any lacks wisdom, let them ask, for You give generously to all without finding fault, and wisdom will be given to them.

We will not stop praying for our leaders Father. It is our desire that they be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That they walk worthy of You Lord, pleasing You, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of You. Let Your Holy Spirit guide their lives and give them comfort in knowing You are with them. 

Lord, we are submitted to our authorities, for we know all authority comes from You, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by You. For they are Your handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which You have prepared in advance for them to do. You are the One who changes times and seasons; removes authorities and raises up others. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the understanding.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people You have chosen as Your heritage! Keep Your hand upon America and our leaders Father and cast out all enemies.  Our land is in need and left all alone, we put our hope in You Father God and we continue night and day to pray in the name of Jesus and to ask for Your help.
