Proverbs 29:4

By justice a king builds up the land, but he who exacts gifts tears it down.

Holy God,

We lift up our leaders again and pray they act justly in every circumstance. Guide their policies and interactions with other leaders so they may rule wisely, and with honesty and integrity. Help them put policies in place that will build up this nation and her people. Give our leaders the vision of what this nation can become if we follow You. Touch our leaders to not put too high of a financial burden on the people, but only what is necessary for the common good.

Amen.

July 17th ~ Prayer Challenge for America


pray for America

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.
