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.

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.

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.
