Romans 13:7

Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.”

Heavenly Father,

Help us to obey and honor those you have put in authority over us. Guide us to honesty and to not withhold what is due to the government so that all citizens may benefit. Help us to pay fairly for all our goods and services because the laborer is due his wages. Help us to show appropriate respect, honor, and obedience to those in authority over us, because you choose to give us these leaders.

Amen.

Proverbs 29:2

When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan.”

Heavenly Father,

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.

Amen.

When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but with a man of understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”

 

Father God,

Help us honor You in everything we say and do, and guide us to create social order for the good of all our citizens. We pray for stability in our leaders, a prosperous economy, and protection for this nation. Help us to act honorably in every way and guide us live righteous lives so we may point the way to a relationship with You.

Amen.

Matthew 12:25

Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.”

 Dear Heavenly Father,

We lift up to you our divided nation and pray for healing. Self-interest and thoughts of power permeate many who lead us, and even those in the general population. Help us remember our common interests and work together to solve our problems in a godly way. Help us to embrace and celebrate our similarities as well as our differences. That is where solutions will come from. Remind us daily that we all your precious children and we are better together.

Amen.

Father God,

We are Your hands and feet here on earth. Help us to act justly and honorably, and be prepared to perform the good works You have prepared for us. Sweeten our speech so that we only speak words that are kind, compassionate, and forgiving. Help us to not quarrel with anyone, rather help us be kind and gentle, and look for our common interests and goals. We lift up our leaders and all those in authority over us and pray You give them wisdom in all matters. Help us to be obedient citizens and show submission and humility to our leaders and neighbors in all we do.
