Father, we love You. We need You. We continually place ourselves in Your tender care and protection because we trust You.
Today we are here by the right of our need and on the authority of Your Word. We receive freedom from lack of beneficial things. We are confident from Your Word that this includes the protection and success of our military men and women, the salvation of the members of our citizenry and wisdom for our political and military leaders.
We agree with the prayer posted on the Kenneth Copeland website:
Father, I bring the needs of our government before You and ask You to bless our nation through godly leaders. I magnify the Name of Jesus and declare that He is Lord over this nation.
Father, I pray according to I Timothy 2:1-3 which says, I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour.
I pray, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, for our president, the vice president, all the Cabinet and the chief justice and associate justices of the Supreme Court to receive the wisdom of God, to act in obedience to that wisdom and for the power of God to flow in their lives.
I pray for the members of the Senate and the House of Representatives to find Your peace and direction, and for these men and women to act and lead according to Your Word. A house divided against itself cannot stand, therefore, I pray for them to be unified in righteousness for the sake of the nation.
I pray for Your protection to cover all our law enforcement officers and the men and women of the military. I ask for godly counsel and wisdom for judges across this land. In the Name of Jesus, I pray that You and your kingdom of righteousness be manifested in the hearts of all those who are in authority in any way.
Father, Your Word says to pray for the peace of Jerusalem because those that love Jerusalem shall prosper. Lord Jesus, because You love Jerusalem and wept over it, I love it also. I pray for Jerusalem to receive the Shalom of God, which brings wholenessnothing missing, nothing broken. I pray that no leader of our nation will make any decision that will harm Jerusalem in any way. And in the Name of Jesus, I pray that You reveal Your perfect will to all the leaders of Israel. I ask You, Lord, to reveal Yourself to each person. Thank You, Father, for hearing my prayers that are in accordance to Your will. I receive the answers, in Jesus Name. Amen.
Read: 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Years ago in a worship service, pastor Ray Stedman stepped to the pulpit and read the text for the day: Dont fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat peoplenone of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. Some of you were once like that (1 Cor. 6:9-11 nlt).
Then he looked up, a bemused smile on his face, and said, Im curious: How many of you have one or more of these sins in your background? If so, will you stand?
There was a young man there who had never been in a church before. He had recently been saved at a Billy Graham crusade and came with fear and trembling to church that Sunday, not knowing what he would find. He later told me that when he heard the pastors question, he looked around to see if anyone would stand. At first no one did, but then most of the congregation was on their feet. He said to himself, These are my kind of people!
We can all find ourselves in Pauls list in 1 Corinthians. But when we confess our sin and accept the gift of eternal life paid for by the death of Jesus, we become a new creation saved by grace (Rom. 6:23; 2 Cor. 5:17).
Amen to your prayer for our American Heroes and For Our Nation, Hiskid!

May God bless and have mercy on the United Stated of America and deliver her from evil.
But I admit, at times, I find praying for those I judge as godless leaders, hard to do. My human reaction is to wish that the Lord would judge them and remove them from office.
Yet, He cares for their souls - knows their entire story - and we have the promise that what men mean for evil, God can turn to good.
I join in lifting up our leaders and heroes to God’s special care and that a revival will be sparked in America.
Amen to your prayer of confidence...that nothing
is too far from MERCY and GRACE...
I join in prayer for our heroes and nation!
Amen, with All my Heart, Dearest Sister Hiskid.
Standing with you in 100% Agreement, with Thanksgiving for your Ministry of Prayer and Praise.
