5. Prayer for Leaders in Our Nation

Slide 3 of 3

Lord God,
     Our leaders in this nation need our prayers. Whether we voted for them or not, and whether we agree with them on every issue or not, they are still Your creation and they have been given a seat in leadership for a reason. Father, we pray for their souls individually. May they be transformed by the working of the Holy Spirit and Lord may they use their positions for Your glory. We pray for wisdom for each of them as they navigate from day to day, we pray for discernment of what is right and what is wrong, and Lord we pray that their hearts would come to know You so intimately that they are like David, men and women after Your own heart. Lord, we pray for them in this age, and we pray for the leaders to come. We know no matter who sits in Oval Offices, Congress, or Governor’s Chairs, ultimately You Lord are Sovereign, and Father we pray those in such seats will seek Your face today and in the days to come.

          In Jesus Name,

6. Prayer for Future Generations to Come

Lord Jesus,
     In John 17:23 You pray for the generations to come, and so do we. We know that these generations will be effected by the things we do currently. Lord, we pray out Your words, “May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me.” May the generation to come know You intimately and personally, and may they be driven by nothing else but Your love and Spirit. We lift those not even born yet up to You, Lord. We pray for the generations to come, and we pray for the world they will inherit. May seasons of unity begin with us and be received by them.

          In Jesus Name,

It is easy to feel overwhelmed and downcast by all we see occurring on the news, but we do not fight these battles alone. We serve God, and through Him nations rise and nations fall, but He endures.

He is a God of peace and of unity, not of discord and confusion. Let us lean into Him, and follow His leading towards a new dawn to come.
