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.

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 behave with honesty and integrity regarding our debts and to not withhold what is due. Help us to pay fairly for all our goods and services because the laborer is due his wages. Help us to show appropriate respect and honor to those in authority over us, because you choose to give us these leaders. Where there is disagreement, remind us to be respectful, and when a decision is made, to obey.

Proverbs 28:2

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

 

Father God,

We have sinned greatly as a nation and dishonored You in so many ways. We have listened to those who speak with evil tongues, and we have followed the wrong leaders. This had divided our nation. Forgive us and set us on the right path. Choose godly leaders for us and grant them Your wisdom. 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.
