Prayer for Government Leadership

The month of July 2018 has been designated by a number of Christian leaders as a month the Church of America will pray for America. This level of unity can get the job done! We don’t have to all pray the same way. We just have to pray. God knows our heart and will honor the unity of the saints in the bond of love. Let’s get ready for July by beginning now to pray for our national leadership. Ronnie Floyd, the Chairman of the National Day of Prayer, has given us a list of matters to pray for our governmental leadership. You can find them below.

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord like channels of water; he turns it wherever he wants.” (Proverbs 21:1; NET)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • O Lord, our needs are great, and we appeal to You for resolve, cooperation, and leadership regarding the challenging issues of:
    • America’s climbing debt
    • Immigration
    • Religious freedom nationally and internationally
    • Healthcare
    • Opioid and drug crisis
    • Security of our nation internally and externally
    • Ongoing challenges in Israel and in the Middle East, as the United States Embassy in Israel has now been moved to Jerusalem
    • Judicial and political appointment processes to be expedited
    • Tax reform
    • Sexual harassment and abuse
    • Sanctity and dignity of all human life from conception through death
    • Racial unrest across America
    • Needs of our veterans, our nation’s military, and their families
    • Ongoing investigations to reveal truth and a resolve be reached soon in each of them
    • Election of leaders in the fall of 2018
  • This list could go on, but Lord, these specifically this month we place into Your hands. Please channel the hearts of our leaders to what is best for the American people as well as others across the world.

A prayer you can pray:

“Lord, as You have the power to control a king’s heart and direct it wherever You choose, please direct our President Donald J. Trump, our Vice President Mike Pence, our President’s Cabinet, our appointed and elected leaders in America, as well as those leading our nation’s Armed Forces … moving them in a direction You desire.”1 Our nation is in great need of strong leadership to move back to a position of righteousness and justice. Our leaders must be fearless and uncompromising, honest and compassionate. May they turn to You for direction in all matters that pertain to the American people. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will direct our nation’s government leaders, to lead as He desires!

July Will Be America’s Month to Pray

“In June 2018, all across America and beyond, we are calling prayer warriors and prayer intercessors for America to join together in agreement in prayer. Please mobilize your pastor, your church, your denomination, and your personal network of friends across America and the world to join us for ‘31 Days of Prayer for My Nation from July 1-31’. Just imagine what could happen if millions of Americans would intercede through agreement in prayer for America during these months. We need you to join us. Spread the word now.” (Ronnie Floyd)1

I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.” (1 Corinthians 1:10; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for unity in prayer for the Church of the United States of America in July 2018. May we find common ground and watch the darkness shake at our united front.
  • Declare that July 2018 is America’s Month of Prayer and that the nation will make a giant shift toward righteousness!
  • Mobilize your pastors, church, denomination, and personal network of friends to join in.

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus, you love it when the Church is in unity. One of the things we should always be able to unify over is intercession! We ought always to pray, especially for those in authority over us. Our nation is in a season of change and we want to participate in that, changing the spiritual atmosphere through our united intercession. We call our pastors to have a desire to pray for the nation and give sections of our church services to prayer for America at least in the month of July 2018. Let whole denominations hear of this and encourage their pastoral staffs to implement this in their churches. Let’s put it all over social media and then, let’s pray! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

Unified prayer can change this nation!
