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.

Amen.

Titus 3:1

“Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.”

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.

Amen.

Psalm 102:15

Nations will fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth will fear your glory.”

Heavenly Father,

We know it is You who has provided everything we have. That includes the nation in which we live. Remind us to give You reverence and respect at all times. Help us also remember that every good gift is from You and to not take You and Your blessings for granted. Instead, help us use those blessings wisely. We thank You for your constant provision and granting us freedom to choose to worship You. As a people, guide us back to You, to give You the place in our hearts, and the praise and honor You deserve. Touch the hearts of our leaders to become the example of how to be obedient to You, honor You, and love You.

Amen.
