Pray for all those in authority

“A king’s heart is like streams of water in the LORD’s hand: He directs it wherever He chooses.” – Proverbs 21:1

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-4  

He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.
– Psalm 46:9

The following is an intercessory prayer based on the above scriptures.

Father, we pray that You would this day take hold of the hearts of all in authority in every sector of every nation or tribe on earth, from the least to the greatest, both the wicked and the good, and turn their hearts to do Your will, even when they are against You. We base our request on these scriptures, which will not return to You void, but will accomplish the purpose for which they were given. We do this in the name of Jesus, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness, and that the gospel of the kingdom may cross all borders unhindered. Amen

  1. Please pray especially for President Trump — that he be protected from evil and all those who wish and do him ill.

    • Dr Eowyn . . . just before I got on the PC this afternoon, President Trump was on my mind. I took the time to pray for him, and for us, the American people. I have never seen any President who was so besieged by so many people of ill will. Now a group of Republican’s want to combine with the Democrats and want to force a straight up or down vote on “immigration.” I do not understand why they are unable to utilize the same vigor in finding a way to finance the Wall. I absolutely believe that if we cannot “WIN” this time ’round, with a duly elected President, then the future of this nation looks pretty unstable to me. The only solution to this problem will come from Heavenly intervention. I am sure of that.

      • At the top of the chain of command is Lucifer giving orders to people like Nimrod to rebuild Babylon. Lower down, we have his subjects who have been bribed, blackmailed, or want power so badly they will sell out family and country to gain it. You are so unlike them, you will never really understand them.

      Yes Dr. Eowyn. I have found Psalm 31 very suitable to intercede for President Trump. “
      Verses 11-18 really fit his stituation:

      Because of all my enemies,
        I am the utter contempt of my neighbors
      and an object of dread to my closest friends—
        those who see me on the street flee from me.
      I am forgotten as though I were dead;
        I have become like broken pottery.
      For I hear many whispering,
        “Terror on every side!”
      They conspire against me
        and plot to take my life.
      But I trust in you, Lord;
        I say, “You are my God.”
      My times are in your hands;
        deliver me from the hands of my enemies,
      from those who pursue me.
        Let your face shine on your servant;
      save me in your unfailing love.
        Let me not be put to shame, Lord,
      for I have cried out to you;
        but let the wicked be put to shame
      and be silent in the realm of the dead.
        Let their lying lips be silenced,
      for with pride and contempt
        they speak arrogantly against the righteous.

    They need all of the help they can get because of the Dem’s socialist/muslim movement who are trying to derail the country. We must fight for our freedom because “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.”
