 Peter 2:13

“Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme.”

 

 

Heavenly Father,

It is You who has placed men and women in leadership roles, and You desire for us to not rebel against authority, because that is rebelling against You. Help us to accept Your decisions because You alone are wise and want the best for Your children. Help us to be obedient without grumbling or complaining. Give us the wisdom and discernment we need to recognize when worldly authorities are in disagreement with Your laws so we can use the processes in place to present our disagreements in a loving, kind, Christian manner. It is by our actions that others will see Jesus Christ, your wonderful Son. Strengthen You people, Your church, and this nation.

Amen.

Leviticus 19:15

“You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.”

 

Mighty and Wise Lord,

We pray for righteousness to sweep over this nation and to influence those charged with ensuring laws are kept and the communities are kept safe. Touch those in such positions to look past differences to the truth of each matter. Grant wisdom to those who judge and impose punishment to make fair decisions.  For those who are called to jury service, please open our eyes to see the truth and to help us act fairly, according to your laws, and setting aside our personal opinions and differences. Make us all honorable with our requests of governing authorities.

Amen.

Proverbs 21:1

“The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will.”

 

 

Father God,

You have chosen our leaders and given them power and authority to watch over us. They can use their authority for good or for evil. We ask You to guide our leaders and give them a godly vision of Your plans for this nation. Grant them wisdom to make plans for our country that will bless the populous, and maintain our freedoms to worship You openly. Soften their hearts so their desire is to truly help and encourage all our people. Help us use Your blessings to bless and encourage others as well.

Amen.

Hebrews 13:17

Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.

Most Precious Heavenly Father,

We are a people who want to do our own thing and forget those around us. Help us remember to be thoughtful and compassionate to others, considering their needs before ours. Remind us to be obedient and work diligently for all those in authority over us. Help us to be joyful in our service to the leaders you have given us, and remind us to not to complain about our circumstances for you are ultimately in control. Grant great wisdom to those in authority over us so they lead in a godly manner.

Amen.

1 Peter 2:16

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.”

Most Precious Heavenly Father,

You have blessed us with great freedoms as citizens of this nation, and in You. Although we are free to choose, help us to remember to think through our actions to their final outcome. Help us also remember that over-indulgence brings consequences. Instead, help us to use the freedoms You have blessed us with to serve you well and act honorably to all people and in every situation. Help us to use our freedom to bring you glory. As we celebrate our freedoms today, make us ever mindful that they are a great gift from you.

Amen.
