As we pray today, We invite a move of Your Spirit in America that we hold You God in wonder and great reverence. May the glory of the presence of Jesus cover this land. Let all the inhabitants of the United States stand in awe of Him. You Word declares, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…” May You visit us with Your weighty presence and majesty.
Heavenly Father, today I pray for those in Leadership in Washington, as well as our States, and cities… I declare that are giving them a new heart, new and right desires. That you are taking away the stony heart of sin and giving them a heart of love for You and for the people under their care and leadership. May you even visit them in visions and dreams of the night that they may see You in Truth and that they may see and know Your destiny for their lives. In Jesus Name, Amen.
We pray today, Heavenly Father for Revival and not Revolution in the streets of our cities. May there be an opening of the eyes of each of our hearts to recognize the values of the Kingdom of God as the only true way to experience Justice, Joy, and true peace of heart and mind. Visit us with Mercy that our eyes might be opened to see and know Jesus as the Way, Truth, and Life. In His Name we pray, Amen.
We pray today for the purposes of God to be fulfilled in this year’s elections:
We pray that the U.S. will turn and seek first the Kingdom of God.
We pray that God will be honored in the midst of this election campaign.
We pray for opportunities for Christians to share their faith and their values in the midst of this election process.
We pray that the results of the 2012 elections will please the Lord and release His blessing over this nation.
In Jesus name and authority, we bind the spirit of lies and loose the spirit of truth throughout this election cycle.
We declare an extinguishing of any violence that may be planned in our streets; and speak peace and safety in our cities.
For those who may be planning to stir up riots or unlawful demonstrations, we intercede that they be found out before these events take place, and that they be brought to justice.
Dear Father, I realize that racial enmity came as a result of the Fall. Truly, we do not even know the ethnicity of Adam, except that he was Your creation, a child of God. It is from his seed that all humanity proceeded. I pray that there would be such a move of Your Spirit in our nation that our oneness is Jesus Christ would positively influence relations between races. I desire that this begin in the Body of Christ and spread throughout every community in our country. May it affect every ethnic group and cross every racial barrier. I pray that when we look at those from another culture, we won’t see them as people of another color, but that we will see them through the eyes of love as You see them–as people created in Your own image. In the name of Jesus the Lord, Amen.
Jesus, in Your Holy Name, I lift up our president to You. I ask You to guide him in the way You would have him go. Lord, I declare that You will surround our president with wise counsel–with men and women of moral integrity who place Your agenda and the good of this great nation above their own and whose motives are for that which is right. Enlighten the hearts our leaders with discernment, understanding, and knowledge so that our country may know stability internally and abroad. As your Word instructs me, I offer prayers for the leadership of this country so that we might lead peaceable lives in godliness and honesty. In the name of Jesus the Lord, Amen.
We intercede on behalf of the candidates for public office. By the light of the Spirit of revelation, May they come to know the fear of the LORD so that they will walk in wisdom and integrity in the final days of their campaigns.
We pray for the voters that they will know and correctly discern the true character of each candidate on the ballot. Pray that you will inspire the voters will choose wisely, according to your wisdom and that each voter will be led by Your Spirit. In the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.
We declare that we, the Body of Christ in America, will walk together before our Lord in the spirit of unity and with pure hearts.
We state boldly in faith that, by the conviction of Your Spirit, repentance is becoming a lifestyle, so that we are each quick to come before the Lord, confessing our sins and forgiving each other, where needed. Men and women are turning from the ways of unrighteousness to serve the One True God.
We pray that the light of Your Spirit may guard our hearts from political wrangling at this time of Election. May Your Kingdom be established by the mysterious workings of Your Spirit in our Land. In the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen
Friday, September 28, 2012 begins the national “40 Days of Prayer for America.” Over the next 40 days I am going to devote this blog to a daily prayer. It will be written as well has have a video link for the same prayer so that you can pray along with me:
Heavenly Father, You are the real foundation of nations, raising them up to serve and care for the people that dwell in their borders. I thank you for making me a citizen of the United States of America. Your Word says that “Righteousness exalts a nation.” I pray and call for an invasion of Kingdom righteousness in the hearts and lives of the peoples of this nation. May the light of Your righteous Kingdom come to this earth as it is in heaven. I call for this country to again be a source of Your wisdom, strength, and integrity throughout the world. I say, “Storm of unrighteousness and confusion, submit to God’s Kingdom of Righteousness, Peace, and Joy!” I pray in the name, reputation, and authority of Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.
