Let’s roll pastors!
Those holding pre-election prayer gatherings! Homebound intercessors!
Here are several prayers that you can join in with others for lifting up our nation (or any nation) in prayer!
Prayer Against Threats Within and Without
LORD, you are our High Tower, and we pray against all threats from within our nation and from outside our borders.
In Jesus’ Name, we bind the work of foreign leaders or terrorists who would seek to bring harm to our shores or to our people living abroad.
We pray for these plans of evil to come to nothing. We come against all plots within our country — against our President or other leaders or against our people.
Nothing that is formed against us shall prevail. Amen!
Prayer for Humility and Integrity
God, our eternal King, we pray for our government leaders to walk in humility and integrity.
May they put the needs of others before themselves and be true servant leaders.
May they not be so proud that they cannot hear the wisdom of others, but instead seek out good counsel and follow it.
May they be modest and not self-promoting.
May they be honest, morally upright, and have strong principles in line with your standard of righteousness.
May they not accept bribes or work for their own ends, but for the benefit of the people. Amen!
Prayer Against Disorder and Unrest
Steadfast LORD, we pray against anything in our country leading to a state of disorder or unrest.
We pray that we as citizens will recognize authority and obey it, even when we don’t agree with certain things.
Help us to use peaceful and legal means to address issues that concern us.
We pray against those who are working to stir up trouble and violence and to bring harm to our government and our nation.
May we work together in harmony for a better nation. Amen!
Prayer for Justice to Prevail
God and Father of all, we lift up our troubled nation to you, asking for justice to prevail.
We pray for all people in our nation to be treated fairly in all avenues of life, but especially the judicial system.
We ask that you raise up judges who are men and women of high principles.
We pray for our Supreme Court justices and for each judge in this land to bring justice to those who come before them.
May they judge fairly, reasonably, and righteously. Amen!
Prayer to Raise up Prayer Warriors
God of hope, we ask that you raise up prayer warriors to intercede for our country and our leaders.
Use us for this ministry, but bring an army of interceeders alongside.
We know it is your will that prayers be offered for our nation’s leaders and all those in authority so we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in godliness and dignity.
We know this is good and pleasing in your sight.
LORD, you are our only hope for our nation.
Help us not neglect this sacred duty. Amen!
Prayer for Leaders to Work in Unity
LORD God, you are the Builder of all things.
May our leaders work together harmoniously and not get sidetracked by partisan politics.
Help our leaders — and help us — not to be divided, but to commit to working cooperatively for the common good.
Give our leaders and us humility and respect for one another. When our leaders have different opinions and agendas, help them find common ground and find ways to compromise.
Help our leaders to be mutually supportive of one another. Amen!
Prayer for Righteousness
LORD, you are our Deliverer, and we pray for our nation and our leaders to turn toward righteousness and away from evil.
May we not be labeling what is good as evil, or what is evil as good.
You have said that if we seek your face and turn from our evil ways, you will hear from heaven and heal our land. O LORD, may we as individuals and as a nation set our focus on obeying your word and living pure lives. Amen!
Prayer for Health and Safety of Leaders
Father, our faithful Creator, we pray that you will bless our leaders with good health and with safety.
Guard them from accidents or injuries or attacks. May they be emotionally and psychologically whole.
We pray that you will protect them from viruses and bacterial infections and other pathogens that cause disease.
We speak health to their organs, especially their heart, lungs, and liver.
We also pray for the collective health of our nation. May we pursue healthy lifestyles, and may we all have access to affordable healthcare. Amen!
In His Shadow,
