The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.(Proverbs 21:1)

TOPICS: Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You this evening still standing watch for our nation and for that which is to come. Lord, we worry, though we should not - for what good does it do. Nothing can happen that isn't sifted through Your hands first and so it is in Your heart and hands we place our trust. Lord, You make and break kings and rulers. You raise up nations and destroy them just the same. You spin the whole globe in its place, and yet, the movement of the tiniest molecule doesn't escape Your knowledge. Truly, nothing is too difficult for You. And so we pray for America and President-Elect Obama.

For America, we pray for Revival. Not economic blessing. Not security. Revival. The other things would be nice and if that is what You choose to do for us, we are thankful. But if we had all of the other things, but didn't have You then we would be most miserable. Help us Lord to love You more and to hold to Your unchanging hand even through the storms to come.

I pray for Barack Obama. With each pick of the cabinet we can see where his agenda is heading. It isn't good. Mold his heart after Your will. Draw him to Yourself and save him. Draw him to repentance. But if not, deliver us from evil. For You alone deserve the glory, not man. And to You alone we give it.

Go with us the rest of this day, Lord. Be with our military. Be with our military families. And may we be pleasing to You in all we say and do. In Jesus' name I pray these things. Amen.

Oh Lord our God. The verse above reminds us that you are in control of kings. Obama’s heart is in your hands and you will ultimately decide which way it bends. Your words bring me peace.
Father, I too pray for revival. Obama speaks in his books of revolution. He associates himself with comrades who want revolution in America. I pray that You will bring a revolution to Obama’s mind and heart.
First I pray for an intellectual revolution, a revolutionary change in the way he thinks about You, God. Let the truth that You alone rule the kingdom of men grip his mind.
Second, I pray for an emotional revolution, a revolution in the way he feels about You, God. May he learn to praise Your power and might instead of building his own power and might.
May we all do the same in Jesus Name.

Psalm 5

1 Give ear to my words, O LORD,
consider my sighing.
2 Listen to my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.

3 In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation.

4 You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil;
with you the wicked cannot dwell.

5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence;
you hate all who do wrong.

6 You destroy those who tell lies;
bloodthirsty and deceitful men
the LORD abhors.

7 But I, by your great mercy,
will come into your house;
in reverence will I bow down
toward your holy temple.

8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness
because of my enemies—
make straight your way before me.

9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with destruction.
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongue they speak deceit.

10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.

11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.

And may it be, Merciful Father, that You will turn the hearts of the wicked, that they would see the error of their ways, and repent.

Father, we lift this nation up to You, for You are our source in all things. You are faithful to do as You say, and Your goodness and mercy are renewed daily.

I ask, Father, that you search the hearts of our leaders to find Your redemption in their lives - that You would take those qualities as a mustard seed and reap a bountiful harvest for Your righteousness. I ask that the ones You have called to lead will be a blessing to this nation - not a curse. The hearts of kings are in Your hands.

“ Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.

Daniel 2:20-22

Merciful, compassionate Lord Jesus, You were the first missionary, You were the first to leave home for the foreign mission field. It was not Paul, Silas, Barnabas, Philip or Peter, No, it was You Jesus, You left Your home, the gates of Heaven to come to the distant shores of a foreign land...the planet earth, this sinful world. All missions are reenactments and manifestations of the incarnation of You Lord Jesus, leaving Heaven, for the sake of God's love, and entering this world. And since You're the first missionary, then this world is the first and primary mission field. I've been born-again, that is to say, I'm born from above, my home is in Heaven and this earth is a foreign land for me, which means I'm already in the mission field, You've called me to.

Father, the same is true for all New Testament believers, this world is not their home, it's their mission field. During their brief visit; uphold them in Your integrity instead of their own and set them in Your presence forever, for then, one of them can rout a thousand, because You, the Lord our God, fights for them, just as You promised. While they're here, faithful God, help them to be very careful to love You, the Lord our God. And even if their close friend, whom they trusted, he who shared their bread, lifts up his heel against them, You Lord, have mercy on them,You raise them up. Empower them to live their lives pleasing to You, and the enemy will not be able to triumph over them. In these last days, help them, to set aside more time to minister to their families, to bless others by providing that which is needed, time, company, food or prayer. To give freely, with joy and love in their heart, for the only reasons they're on this earth, Lord, is to be a blessing, to be a light, to show forth Your love and spread forth Your salvation. In Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen.

I’ll pray for him.

I’ll pray that God convicts him of his need of repentence and failing that, if he ignores His conviction, that God will punish him accordingly.

Furthermore, I’ll pray that God brings him and his administration to nought unless he repents, that he makes him and the evil ones he has gathered around an example of what happens to those who turn their back on God.

Almighty Father,
Creator of heaven and earth. Holy. Merciful. The only wise God. Who am I, Most High God, that you would even consider me? Who am I to wonder why you would have me pray for my enemies? So, I do in honor and obedience to You.

This President-elect gets on You Tube presenting "presidential" like speeches. I pray that his apparent haughty, arrogant and disrespectful attitude toward the POTUS and the citizens who did not vote for him be made crystal clear to him. I pray that you deal with him in a way to humble him. I ask Father, that Obama's right standing to be POTUS be made crystal clear, & exposed fully. I ask that you preserve our nation's sovereignty.

I thank You, because I know you listen to me and care about my concerns. I thank You for that honor, being able to come to You and talk.
In Jesus name, AMEN
