Proverbs 11:11

By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is overthrown.”

 

Heavenly Father,

We ask your forgiveness for the times we have rebelled against You. Guide us to be an upright and obedient people, and a blessing to others. Help us to serve our communities, cities, and the entire nation. Show us how and who you want us to serve. Give us the clarity and the courage to step out in faith and do Your will. Guide us back to You Lord. Finally, we ask for your blessings upon this country.

Amen.

 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.

Psalm 85:10-12

Love and truth belong to God’s people; goodness and peace will be theirs. On earth people will be loyal to God, and God’s goodness will shine down from heaven. The Lord will give his goodness, and the land will give its crops.”

 Mighty God,

You have been so good to this nation. We have prospered greatly because of Your love and grace. But we have also sinned and turned away from You. Guide us back to You and fill us with Your goodness so that others will see You and turn to You as well. Remind us that we are to follow You alone and place You first in our lives. Then Lord, rain down your prosperity on this nation and help us share from the bounty You have blessed us with.

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 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.

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 honesty and to not withhold what is due to the government so that all citizens may benefit. Help us to pay fairly for all our goods and services because the laborer is due his wages. Help us to show appropriate respect, honor, and obedience to those in authority over us, because you choose to give us these leaders.

Amen.
