Scripture: I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone, for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness (1Tim.2:1).
Proclamation: We proclaim that God rules this nation and that all people in human authority are subject to Him. May godliness and holiness guide all political leaders and government officials.
Prayer: Father, we pray and intercede for the President, for every cabinet minister in government, and authorities on a regional level, that they may know Your purposes. We ask that they will come to have peace through Jesus Christ, and live lives filled with godliness and in all holiness.
Blessing: Heavenly Father, bless our nation so everyone will taste and see and enjoy the peace of God and live godly and peaceful lives.
Something practical to do today: Take time to pray for someone in authority to come to know the Lord Jesus Christ, and also to exercise their authority according to God’s purpose for them and the country.
