Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

Prayer for our Leaders

I love it how God wants us to have an attitude of prayer when it comes to those in leadership. Consider what Paul writes to Timothy:
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. -1Timothy 2:1-4
We ask you Father to give us a heart of prayer for those who lead our countries, our states, our courts, and our communities. We thank you for our leaders. We intercede for them asking that you would give them heavenly wisdom and understanding concerning the issues and decisions that come before them. We ask that you would develop humility and meekness in their hearts. Cause them to be men and women who seek after you and put you first in their lives. We ask that you would help them to have strong families and friends that surround them with godly encouragement and counsel. Above all we ask that your kingdom come and your will be done in their lives and the places that they govern. In Jesus' name.

Amen
