Prayer For Country Leaders
Eternal God, Fount of wisdom,
we ask you to bless the national leaders we have elected,
grant that through their discussions and decisions
we may solve our problems effectively,
enhance the well-being of our nation,
and achieve together a fairer and more united society.
Give us, O God,
leaders whose hearts are large enough
to match the breadth of our own souls
and give us souls strong enough
to follow leaders of vision and wisdom.
In seeking a leader, let us seek
more than development for ourselves
though development we hope for
more than security for our own land
though security we need
more than satisfaction for our wants
though many things we desire.
Give us the hearts to choose the leader
who will work with other leaders
to bring safety
to the whole world.
Give us leaders
who lead this nation to virtue
without seeking to impose our kind of virtue
on the virtue of others.
Give us a government
that provides for the advancement
of this country
without taking resources from others
to achieve it.
Give us insight enough ourselves
to choose as leaders those who can tell
strength from power,
growth from greed,
leadership from dominance,
and real greatness from the trappings of grandiosity.
We trust you, Great God,
to open our hearts to learn from those
to whom you speak in different tongues
and to respect the life and words
of those to whom you entrusted
the good of other parts of this globe.
We beg you, Great God,
give us the vision as a people
to know where global leadership truly lies,
to pursue it diligently,
to require it to protect human rights
for everyone everywhere.
We ask these things, Great God,
with minds open to your word
and hearts that trust in your eternal care.
Heavenly Father, we praise and thank You that You are the most High God Who rules in the kingdom of men. You set up leaders in their various offices and remove them by Your mighty will.
Father, we lift up the leaders of our country and all those that You have set up in places of authority to rule and govern our nation, both political and religious, and we pray that they would rule our land and the many institutions with wisdom and integrity.
We pray that each one would carry out their various responsibilities with honesty and for the benefit of the nation. Clothe each one with righteousness and justice, and we pray that all selfish ambitions would be laid aside, and that Your plans and purposes are fulfillled for the well-being of all citizens.
May Your ways be known in our country and Your name be lifted up in the corridors of power. Guide our country we pray, into the ways of peace, justice and truth. This we ask in Jesus' name,
Loving Lord, I bring before You the many leaders of the world, and those in high positions, knowing that the nation whose God is the Lord is a blessed nation indeed. I pray for those leaders around the world, who are seeking to abide by the truth of Your law. May they be tools, used by You, to maintain justice and righteousness in their respective positions and nations.
I particularly lift up those men and women whom You have called into national leadership positions and pray that they will give You first place in their lives. May they seek You diligently in prayer when they are called upon to make difficult decisions that affect the lives of so many people.
Lead and guide them into all truth and guard them from the ridicule that Christian leaders of our nations inevitably have to face in a world that has predominantly abandoned the truth of Scripture.
Lord, I lift up all kings, governors and those in high positions, and pray that You will bring many to faith in the Lord Jesus, so that we may all live peaceably in this world into which You have placed us.
Protect our nation O Lord I pray, and bring us back to a nation whose God is the Lord. In Jesus' name I pray,
Father, let there be an understanding between our leaders and the people of this nation. Remove anything that may cause misunderstanding between our leaders and threaten the peace of this country. Let our leaders seek your day and night so that they can manage to lead this country the right way. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
Heavenly Father, I pray for our nation and leaders. Give our leaders wisdom that they may be able to do things beyond their understanding. Help them to choose the right path when they make decisions on behalf of this nation. Give the President grace and courage to make sound decisions that align with your will for this nation. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
O Lord, I bring our President and other leaders in different positions before your throne of grace. May they find mercy and grace before you as they look for solutions to the different problems that are affecting our nation. May the President find the right advisors that will give him wise counsel. Expose and remove wrong people around these leaders that are up to no good. May all their demonic-inspired counsel be exposed and destroyed, in Jesus' name. Thank you, God, for leading us in the way that we should go as a nation. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
Lord, I come to You today to pray for the nations of the world and their leaders and governors. Whether a nation is governed by a king or queen, a prince or president, a prime minister or some other form of governance, we pray for each one, that they may fulfil Your plans and Your purposes, in whatever they do, in their lands.
I ask Your blessing on those that are seeking to follow Your ways and I pray for Your pity and mercy on those that are deliberately defying You as the Creator God.
Lord, I know that You are the One that places rulers in their high positions of honour, and You are also the one that removes leaders from their elevated perches. I pray that in Your grace and mercy, You would look down on the nations of the world and intervene with those that are severely oppressing their own people.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord and whether at a national level or in local governance, I pray Your blessing on those men and women that are seeking to follow Your way, as they implement their authority. I also know, Lord, that the opposite is true and that those who defy the living God will come to no good.
Have pity Lord, and convict the leaders of our nations to turn to You. Protect the people that are having to live in nations with a corrupt or evil government. And may the Lord Jesus Himself return very soon to set up His perfect kingdom in this world, when the earth will be filled with a true knowledge of You. In Jesus' name I pray,
