1 Timothy 2:1-3 (NLT)“ I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior……”
Father what a powerful directive you have given us to pray for all people, including those in authority. Help us to be faithful to this admonition in our prayers. If we truly desire to live in peace and live lives of virtue and value this will be one of our daily spiritual disciplines.
Therefore we pray for our new president Donald J. Trump, for his Cabinet, for our Senators, Congressmen, and Supreme Court.
We ask You to help them to understand they are your servants. Help them to humbly grasp their responsibility and accountability to You. Help them to have wisdom and discernment in the critical decisions they will need to make. Help them to commit to work together for the benefit of the people they represent. Help them to be mindful of Your divine providence and our reliance on You for future security and success. Help them to remember we are one Nation under God and as the Apostle Paul reminded us: “For in him (You) we live and move and have our being…..’ ” Acts 17:28 (NIV)
Father for your glory we pray these things in Jesus name. Amen
