I have been sharing throughout the month of October that it’s time — more than ever before — to pray for our world leaders.
Apostle Paul urged us to pray for leaders during a time when world leaders were not godly.
God wants us to pray for leaders no matter what their political party or beliefs happen to be. We need to pray that God’s will be done and not our own desires.
“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 NIV.
Strategy to Pray for Leaders
- Pray that God would surround our world leaders with godly counsel and wisdom.
- Declare only those chosen by God can be placed in leadership positions.
- Ask God to speak to spouses and family members through dreams and revelations. An example in the Bible is when Pilate’s wife had a dream that helped her husband deal with the crowd concerning Jesus (Matthew 27:19).
- Pray our leaders will call upon godly counsel to help interpret and advise.
- Declare that all demonic spirits and influences will be revealed, and the plans of the enemy will be made known.
- Ask God to bless and protect them.
I pray this daily for the President and other world leaders, and I encourage you to come into agreement with this. We need to be united in prayer and not talking about what’s wrong all the time.
Prophetic Word for the United States
Four years ago, God gave me this prophetic word for the United States:
“O America, I still love you and see your zeal for Me.
Satan has asked to sift you like wheat and the enemy has been waging war against you. But a Remnant is going to arise to possess the land.
Your sons and daughters are going to awaken from a sleep and rise up like a mighty army.
They will be like David’s mighty men (and women). Yes, women! I AM moving on women in this hour.
I AM going to do this and it will bring about great changes that are needed for this time.”
We are seeing this happen now!
This is a time to be in the unity of the Spirit, even if we do not agree on everything in the natural (Ephesians 4:3). It is unity that will reveal and break the plans of the enemy.
So don’t be discouraged by what you see. God is moving behind the scenes! Use this prayer strategy to keep your focus on the positives.
