“He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars.”
Daniel 2:21 NLT
Father, you are the King of kings and Lord of lords. Too often we forget this and want to be in control of who leads our government. We want to decide and take on ourselves the role that only belongs to you. We grieve and complain when the leader you placed in the position of President of our country isn’t the man or woman we wanted to be there. Father, forgive us for our arrogance and self-centeredness. Forgive us for not having faith and confidence in your wisdom and love for us when you determine who leads our nation.
Lord, we pray for the past presidents of our country who are still with us and thank you for their willingness to serve us in such a difficult position.
We pray for our current President who serves us today in a unique and challenging time for our country. Give him wisdom and discernment. We pray that he will seek you for guidance and look to you for peace when the job seems overwhelming.
We pray for our future presidents, that they will be Kingdom men or women who seek to serve Your Kingdom before our earthly country.
We love you Father and pledge to keep you on the throne and look to no human as our ultimate authority but to also respect and trust your decisions about who holds the office of President.
