Prayer for our government: Psalm 53

storm-of-sadness“God looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God. But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt. No one does good, not a single one!”

Psalm 53:2

Father God, I come to you this day with a heavy heart. Even though I know that all of this must happen before your return, Jesus, my heart breaks for the turmoil in the government of our beloved United States.

Father, we prayed and we fasted that the person that you wanted in office as our President would be elected and we trust that you honored that by convicting the Christian community to vote. I know that the battle that President Trump faces is a spiritual battle, but, Lord, I pray that he knows this as well.

Father, President Trump cannot wear his Christianity as a publicity cloak; it must be real. He must lean on you to save our country by directing @realDonalTrump in his every decision. He must awaken each morning with a prayer that you will direct his decisions. He must be in constant prayer throughout the day for his direction down the forks in his road of power. And he must trust you, Jesus, to fight for his decisions, knowing that he is following the leading of the Holy Spirit.

No, I do not know President Donald Trump’s heart, but you do. And I trust that you would not have allowed him to be in the position of the greatest country on earth if it was not your will. Speak to him, Lord, and keep him on the narrow road that leads to life. Release him from bitterness and anger, Lord, and fill him with compassion for those who are not being led by you. Teach him to pray for his enemies, Lord, and to seek their support through that prayer.

Lord, only you know if President Trump is using your wisdom or his own and we leave this in your capable hands.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen
