FOR OUR GOVERNMENT
(NATIONAL, STATE, AND LOCAL):
Father, I come to You in the Name of My Lord Jesus Christ. I pray for our government leaders at
all levels: national, state and local. I pray that they would realize their personal sinfulness and
daily need of Your wisdom. I pray that they will realize their personal inadequacy to fulfill the task
and that they would be dependent on You for knowledge and courage to do what they know to
be right. I pray that they would reject all counsel that violates Christian principles and that they
would trust God to prove them right. I pray for strength for our leaders to resist pressure to violate
their conscience and that by Your Power, Lord Jesus that our government will reverse the culture of
death in this nation. I pray that our leaders are ready to forsake personal ambition and political
causes that will not benefit our nation, state, or city. I pray that You will restore dignity, honor,
trustworthiness and righteousness to the offices of our government and help them to be good
examples in personal conduct for the people to follow.
I pray that our leaders will love and practice justice and mercy, speaking up for those who cannot
speak for themselves and rescuing the unborn who are unjustly sentenced to die. My earnest
prayer is that You will reveal the deep and mysterious things that are hidden and expose them with
Your marvelous light. I pray that You would make the crooked path straight, exposing all deceit.
You said that if we would humble ourselves and pray, turn from our wicked ways and seek Your
face that You will forgive our sins and restore our land.
Restore our land, Lord. I pray all of these things in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ. AMEN
