Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
1 Tim 2:1-2 NIV 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.
Prayer written by Wanda Alger:
We come today as the body of Christ in this nation, to lift up our president, Donald J. Trump. As many voices rise up against this one You have set into office, we lift up our voices, with one heart and mind, to stand in agreement with heaven's purposes concerning our nation (Ps. 133). We stand by this president who has declared this nation to be under God's rule and authority and acknowledge righteousness and justice to be the foundations of Your throne (Ps. 89:14).
We welcome and embrace the fear of the Lord as the standard for all righteous rule and repent for the ways in which we have bowed to the fear of man (Prov. 29:25). Cleanse our hearts and renew our minds that we may walk in the light of Your truth (Ps. 43:3). We ask that President Trump would delight in the fear of the Lord in order to walk in the power of Your might and the wisdom of Your ways. May righteousness and faithfulness be his portion so that he may render righteous judgments according to Your Word (Mic. 3:8).
We ask that President Trump would show no fear toward the evil that assails him (Isa. 8:12), but rather overcome it with a zeal and passion for Your laws which bring life and liberty to all (Prov. 10:29-32). May he love Your Word and seek your wisdom diligently (Prov. 8:17), remaining open and teachable to godly counsel and heaven's wisdom (Prov. 1:7, 10). We thank You that his heart is in Your hands and that You will direct it according to Your will and purpose. Grant him increased grace and blessing as he heeds your voice and obeys Your word (Prov. 21:1, 11).
We declare over President Trump that he will have true judgments by the Spirit and not according to man (Isa. 11:3-4, 12). We declare that he will possess heaven's knowledge with shrewdness of mind in making right decisions for the good of the people (Prov. 8:12, 13). Fill his mouth with good things (Prov. 16:9-13) that he may speak what is true and right (Prov. 8:6, 15). We pray that he will use his God-given authority to execute justice and establish righteousness in this land for the sake of Your glory and kingdom (Gen. 49:10, Ps. 60:7). We declare that he will rule in this midst of his enemies, not backing down or wavering due to threats or intimidation (Ps. 110:1-2). May his ears become deaf to the assaults from his enemies and may those who seek his life answer to You for their wicked ways. May he know that it is Your hand and Your sovereign purpose that is keeping him and sustaining him in his divine commission (Ps. 38:12-15, 18).
Keep President Trump and those who serve him, safe from the enemy's snares and free from the accuser's traps (Ps. 141:9-10). By Your great hand, Lord, deal with those who oppose righteousness and justice so that all men will know it is You alone who is sovereign and true (Ps. 64:6-9). May the fire of Your presence burn up all Your enemies and consume all those who stand against You concerning our destiny and inheritance as one nation under God (Ps. 97:1-6).
Thank you, Father, for hearing our prayers and empowering us as kingdom ambassadors on the earth. From the highest office in the land to the least known among men, may we all seek to know You more intimately, serve You more passionately and praise You more fully so that all men will know, You alone are God. Through the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
