The kings heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.(Proverbs 21:1)
1) YES THIS IS A SERIOUS PRAYER THREAD. WE ARE COMMANDED BY THE LORD TO PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE OUR ENEMIES AND COMMANDED IN HIS WORD TO PRAY FOR THOSE IN AUTHORITY THAT WE MAY LIVE PEACEFUL LIVES
2)Prayer threads in the Religion Forum are not to have debate. If you wish to debate, there are a couple of threads going already debating the existence of this thread. You may also take it to my inbox. Please refrain from arguing on a prayer thread. For more information see the FREE REPUBLIC RULES IN THE RELIGION FORUM.
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.
Ping to Prayer
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.
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.
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.

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
