Daily Prayer Guide: Day 3

Praying for Government Leaders

Your city may have many civil governments functioning within the region – city, borough, township, county, state, federal. As the nation of Israel prepared to enter the Lord’s Land of Promise, He gave them a principled plan of leadership living for their KING in Deuteronomy 17:14-20. This instruction provides useful patterns of purposeful praying for us as we intercede for our government leaders in their various positions:

For God to guard Leaders from the “Cultural Corrupters”

• Self-serving ambitions in “POWER grabbing”

• Self-seeking, promiscuous SEXual life styles

• Selfish, exploitive accumulation of MONEY

For Leaders to have their own personal copy of the Bible

(a church authorized version of the Scriptures in a language which “speaks” clearly to the leader)

For Leaders to read Scripture as a daily lifestyle

• To develop a personal-learning relationship with God

• To apply Scripture principles in daily decision making

For Leaders to identify in humility with fellow citizens

• To be servants OF the Lord TO the people

• To see civil leadership as a gift from God

For Leaders to establish a heritage of commitment to God’s purposes for successors in leadership

• To see their legislative call as a link in God’s past plan for the government in the city and region

• To work their legislative time with the purpose of promoting Godly public policy for future generations

PRAY for the Government Leaders where you live. List the names of the current government leaders in your area:
