October 4: A Prayer of Wisdom for the United States Presidential Election

Heavenly Father, we thank You for being our King, Lord and leader. Thank You for the right to vote. Thank You for the authority to expect change through prayer. Thank You for giving us the wisdom, discernment and knowledge to pray for our nation’s elections. We, Your servants, praise You.  We will hold up holy hands in prayer and praise You.  Every king in all the earth will thank You, Lord, for all of us will hear Your words. Yes, we will sing about Your ways, for Your glory is very great!  You are great.  You care for the humble, but keep Your distance from the proud. Lord, You are merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.  You are good to everyone and shower compassion on all of Your creation.

Magnificent Father, let Your Kingdom come and Your will be done during the upcoming presidential elections.  Your Word states that we are to pray for kings and all people who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives that are marked by godliness and dignity. We know that this is good and acceptable in Your sight. In obedience to Your Word, we intercede for the upcoming elections. We decree that the political election process will yield to Your plans. Father, You hold the heart of the king in Your hand and You will turn it in the direction that You choose. We confess and expect that the hearts of the candidates will be guided by the power of the Holy Spirit. We command peace to be still within the presidential elections.  We declare that Your plans will prevail and each candidate will address the issues, take the “high road,” and inspire American voters.  We command Your Word, which we speak with boldness and faith, to interrupt the airwaves and destroy every word that is spoken by the media that does not align with Your will for these campaigns.  We decree that every attempt to misconstrue the Truth will be confused, in Jesus’ Name.  We declare that the democratic process will be implemented fairly and justly throughout our city, state and nation during this upcoming election process.

Holy Spirit, give me wisdom and discernment as I research the candidates for President:

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please speak to the hearts of the candidates.  Continue to increase Your spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, courage, might, and knowledge within them.  We do not know what their level of commitment is to You, but we ask You to communicate with them on behalf of Your people. Equip them with everything they need for doing Your will and produce in them, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to You.  Convict them, along with their entire staff and volunteers, if they use ungodly campaign tactics or resort to political mudslinging.  Confuse the thoughts and messages of those who have disregard for Your Kingdom.  Father, dispatch Your angels to guard and protect their families and destroy every assignment that the devil devises against them.  Father, we know that nothing is too difficult for You.

Everlasting Father, please have mercy upon us and forgive our nation for its many sins.  Forgive us for making “self” the center of our American culture.  Forgive each candidate for his sins.  Forgive them for trusting in their own abilities instead of trusting in You.  Forgive them when they do not consult with You before making decisions or administering their authority and power. Forgive them for the times they have not been fair, compassionate, or understanding as public servants.  Forgive them when they are being people pleasers and not God pleasers.   Forgive us, the Body of Christ, for not praying for our leaders consistently.  Forgive those American citizens who have not exercised the privilege to vote, yet complain about our country’s leadership.

As for me, Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, if there are any candidates who need to forgive anyone, please bring it to their remembrance and help them to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our candidates to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Lord, You are the eternal King, Your rule is everlasting.  All the people of the earth are nothing compared to You.  All of Your acts are just and true.  You alone have held the oceans in Your hand.  You measured the heavens with Your fingers and know the weight of the earth.  The Lord God Almighty is Your Name.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

October 3: A Prayer for Our Political Leaders (local, state, and national)

Righteous Father, we thank You for blessing our nation to be a mighty government in the earth.  Thank You for allowing us to call upon You in our times of need as a nation. Thank You, Lord, for Your bountiful blessings.  We are grateful, and we bless Your Name. You are robed in majesty and armed with strength.  The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.  We praise Your Name, Father, forever and ever.  You have all wisdom and power.  You control the course of world events; removing kings and setting up other kings.  You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars. You reveal deep and mysterious things and only You know what lies hidden in darkness, though You are surrounded by light.

Triumphant Father, in obedience to Your Word, we make intercession on behalf of those who are in positions of authority in our city, state and nation; so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.  We pray for President Barack Obama and all state, and national leaders.  We pray for Mayor Sylvester Turner, our city council members and all other local leaders.  By faith, we call our local, state, and national leaders saved, sanctified, and filled with Your Holy Spirit. We decree that as our political leaders seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, they will receive from You everything they need to lead our nation, state and city.  We declare that the decisions made by our political leaders will be inspired and directed by the Holy Spirit. We destroy the assignments of the devil and we silence the voice of every demonic force.

Holy Spirit, I commit to pray for the following leaders this month:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask You to fill our city, state, and national political leaders with wisdom, understanding, discernment, and knowledge. Grant them favor, increase their faith, and prepare them to pursue Your excellence. Draw them to You and cause them to know and fulfill Your purposes.  Please place people in their paths that will provide scriptural, sound and godly counsel; for without Your counsel their plans will go awry.  Impart Your wisdom and revelation to them about leadership and help them to lead. Deal with our leaders about keeping their hearts and motives pure. We ask You to make their hearts pliable, willing and obedient to Your will.  Cause each of their lives to glorify Your Name.

Loving Father, please forgive our local, state and national leaders for their sins. Forgive those who do not consult with You daily. Forgive them for greed, hypocrisy, injustice, selfish ambitions, pride, arrogance, idolatry, adultery, slander, sexism, elitism, oppression, partiality, lust, manipulations, lying, ungodliness, fornication, homosexuality, perversion, and all other acts of sinfulness. Lord, forgive us for not praying for our leaders consistently.  Forgive us, the body of Christ, for making our political decisions based on the opinions, rhetoric, and untruths of political pundits and talking heads who do not align their agendas with Yours.  Forgive those politicians who say they are Christians, but conduct their affairs in a manner that opposes Your Word.  Father, please have mercy on this nation. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed.)  Holy Spirit, remind our local, state and national leaders of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our local, state and national leaders to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Holy, Holy, Holy, are You, the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is and is to come.  You alone are God.  You are subject to none, yet all are subject to You.  Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

August 30: A Declaration of Wisdom and Unity for President Barack Obama, His Administration and Congress

Almighty Father, thank You for blessing our country, the United States of America. Thank You for being patient with our nation despite all the rancor and division. Thank You for continuing to pour out Your Spirit over this nation and advancing Your Kingdom on earth. We appreciate Your loving-kindness and tender mercies.  Father, we come singing a new song to You, for You have done wonderful deeds.  With all that we are, we will praise You, our Lord and God; for You are great!  You are robed with honor and majesty.  You are dressed in a robe of light. You stretch out the starry curtain of the heavens; You lay out the rafters of Your home in the rain clouds. You make clouds Your chariot; You ride upon the wings of the wind.

Righteous Father, Your Word declares that all authority comes from You, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by You. With this in mind, we submit to You our President, his administration and Congress. By faith, we declare that President Barack Obama, and those individuals within his cabinet and Congress who know You, will trust in You with all of their hearts and not depend on their own understanding.  They will seek Your will in all that they do and as they do this, we trust that You will show them which path to take as they lead and direct this nation.  We declare that they will not be impressed with their own wisdom, but instead they will fear You and turn away from evil. Your Word admonishes that a house divided against itself cannot stand.  We decree that the members of Congress will work together towards the good of the American people.  We declare that they will turn away from division and evil and do good; they will search for peace and work to maintain it.

Holy Spirit, show me how I can continue to pray for President Obama, his administration and Congress:

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Triumphant God, please arise in our government and cause Your enemies of racism, partiality, confusion and discord to be scattered. Holy Spirit, please continue to pour Your wisdom, discernment and power into President Obama, his administration and Congress. Continue to surround him and his administration with favor as they conduct business with Congress and world leaders. Please give them Your ideas to conquer the issues that are plaguing our nation including the environment, education, injustice, unemployment, economy, healthcare, national security, and the natural disasters that have devastated our nation. Continue to touch the Body of Christ to pray for President Obama and all government leaders so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by Godliness and dignity.

Righteous Father, please forgive our nation for imperialism, consumerism and a form of capitalism that is oppressive and subversive.  Forgive us for idolatry, lying, deceit and character assassination. Forgive us for being self-serving, boastful, proud and arrogant.  Forgive us for not acknowledging Your authority and for compromising Your truth.  We realize that our sins are many!  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind President Obama, His Administration and Congress of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help President Obama, His Administration and Congress not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to You forever and ever. You are the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end.  You are the One who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
