A Poetic Reminder for This President's Day
From George to the present,
our job's been to pray
for whoever's leading
the U S of A.
And so on this Monday
let's ask God to bless
Barack H. Obama
with honest success.
Let's pray for our president's
safety and health
and wisdom for taxing

King James Version (KJV)
13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
19 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.
20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.
21 So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.
22 For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed.
23 And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.
24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:
25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?
26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.
27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.
29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.
31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
Lord, we pray that our U.S. President will be an instrument of good to us, that he will choose to love you with all his heart, soul, mind and strength and his neighbor as himself and that he will have a heart of great understanding, to apply the Love of God and the Truth of God's Word to his ministry to this country, to Israel and to all other countries of the world, keeping us and many other people free and protected. I pray that any and all evil plans formed against us, as a people and as a world, known and unknown to them, that could be effective in any way, through this or any other U.S. President or any other ruler here, in Korea, Iran, Iraq, China, Egypt,Venezuela, the Philippines, Afghanistan, Russia, Cuba, or anywhere else, will be thwarted, and those evil plans land squarely on the head of the demons that perpetrated it in the first place, to prevent further attacks. I pray that Your people, everywhere, will lift up HOLY hands, putting You first and fulfilling Your plans, and not our own. That humility and subsequent peace, life, joy and the fruit of the Holy Spirit will rule and reign in every Godly leader today, including those who have not recently been Godly, resulting in a great revival, an out-pouring of Love, Grace, Mercy, Healings and even Restitution, throughout this land! In Jesus's Blessed and Holy Name, Amen!
King James Version
6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
May God Bless His Word
Father in Heaven, You are Holy. There is none like you.
I lift up our president, his cabinet and those in authority over us.
I ask that they would know You and the power of Your resurrection.
Lord, I pray that You will sustain our President, help him to know You. Give him Your wisdom so that He will depend on You for guidance and lead our nation toward Your purposes. In Jesus Name I pray.
Father, please give to all of our leaders hearts of servanthood. Purify their hearts and motives. Free them from the distractions of special interest groups and political biases and from the temptations of wealth and power. Give them discernment to lead with wisdom; give them integrity to put the needs of the people first.
For those of our leaders who know you, give them lives of purity, grace, and holiness that would draw others to you. Protect them from the evil one and give them courage to stand up for you and for your principles.
For those who are still far from you, reach out to them with your grace. Draw them to Jesus Christ - for only you can do that - and lead them to repentance and to salvation.
In Jesus' name,
Therefore I exhort first of all that syppications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. for this is good and acceptable in the sight ofGod our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth. 11 Timothy 2:1-4 Father help me to live this scripture
Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you! As when fire sets twigs ablaze and causes water to boil, come down to make your name known to your enemies and cause the nations to quake before you! Isaiah 64:1-2
PRAY for a Great Awakening across America! Revival fires to purify and cleanse our hearts. PRAY for the LORD (Yahweh/Jehovah God) to rend the veil between heaven and earth and flood the nation with His Spirit!
It's not politics, finances or government policies - but the manifest presence of God that will change America. DESPERATELY seek HIM!
Heavenly Father I praise you and ask that you show your mercy on our president and his family by opening their ears, eyes and hearts to our Savior Jesus. Transform our president, mold him, shape him and conform him into the man you purposed him to be. I pray by the power of your Holy Spirit in me and in the powerful and authoritive Name of our Lord Jesus. Amen
