“When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan.”
We ask You to examine the hearts of our leaders and guide them to a right relationship with You. Grant godly wisdom and discernment to our leaders so they enact proper laws and policies for this society to thrive. Touch them to only impose taxes that are necessary and fair. Expose the evil ways of those against You and give Your people the courage to stand up for what is right. Close the mouths of those who speak publicly against You, or embrace sin. Show us how serious our sin is, both individually and as a nation. Forgive us and help us to humble ourselves and acknowledge You as our God. Guide us to put You in Your rightful place in our lives and to understand Your ways.
