- As you pray for our Government, take the opportunity to pray for specific people. Don’t let your feelings get in the way of praying for them. You may have major disagreements with their views and focus, but the Bible does say to pray for them. See: I Timothy 2:1-4. As an encouraging thought while you pray for these leaders, remember, it is God who turns the hearts of Kings. Prov 21:1.
- As you pray for leaders, pray also, for those who advise and influence our President and other key leaders. I have personally known a few people who, respectively, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and in the power of prayer; these are Christians who are committed to praying for our leaders. Are you willing to take that challenge?
- One more important area of prayer, concerning how we pray for our government: pray for ALL government workers not just the leaders. Government workers affect how laws are carried out, and they recommend regulations and laws that affect us all.
- Seek God’s Wisdom. James 1:5 says “But if any of you lacketh wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”
- Commit to joining in prayer with others, who will commit themselves to pray for our government;
- And commit to praying regularly, for the Government. Praying-together with others will encourage you, and it will make a major difference in our country.
One final note and example of scripture that can be prayed as we pray for our leaders and government: In praying scripture, consider the following thought:
11:16 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.
One additional thought--a positive thought from Scripture--Hosea 14:4 says "I will heal their backsliding , I will love them freely:" (KJV). Consider using that verse in praying for your Government. God can heal our backsliding as a nation and turn our hearts back to Himself.
