For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!
Government was given by God to establish boundaries, justice, and safety for the people.
It is here He is revealed as Lawgiver, Judge, and King. Here is how we can pray for our government and those in authority.
- Pray for the spirit of God to fill those who have authority over us. such as our President and our leaders in all three branches of government, executive, legislative, and judicial, as well as in the military.
- Pray for courage for men and women who feel they have been called by God to run for office.
- Pray for intercessors to rise up who will stand in the gap and pray for their government until they see God move.
- Pray for leaders who love justice, hate injustice, and walk in the fear of the Lord.
- Pray for leaders who are willing to be humble for God, calling for times of prayer and repentance as a nation when directed by God.
- Pray that those who rule would be equipped with wisdom, revelation, and would understand the times and seasons.
- Pray for government leaders to be surrounded by wise counsel.
- Pray for protection over military and law enforcement.
PrayerLord, we come before You, asking You to touch our earthly government. We pray for our president, vice-president, administration, representatives to walk in obedience to you and always seek your direction. Cover them with protection; deliver them from evil and the snare of the enemy. We pray for those in our government who do not know You to become aware that You alone are sovereign and the only true God. We pray for unity in our government; You have said a house cannot stand. Raise up godly leaders who will be wholeheartedly devoted to serving in righteousness. In Jesus’ name, amen.
