We have set aside every Tuesday as a day of prayer for our National leaders: President Obama, the Senate and the Congress. Each week we present a specific focus, birthed from Scripture, that we can agree and pray together. This week we pray that:
Father, I pray that our National Leaders will seek after You and cry out to You for mercy, wisdom and guidance. I pray that they will humble themselves and seek Your approval and not try to please the people. Free them from the people My God.
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules the people groan. Proverbs 29:2
Therefore, I will exhort that first of all supplication, prayers, intercessions, and giving thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may live quiet and peaceable lives in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior. I Timothy 2:1-3
