Oh God, we praise you as the one universal king over all. You are our leader and our lord and we worship you. There is one God and one savior — and it’s you, your name is Jesus. And we exalt you Jesus. And we know we need your mercy. We need your grace. We need your help, we need your wisdom in our country.
We stand right now on behalf of our president and we pray for your grace and your mercy and your wisdom upon him. And God we play that he would know how much you love him — so much that you sent Jesus to die for his sins, our sins. So we pray that he would look to you and that he would trust in you, that he would lean on you, that he would govern and make decisions in ways that are good for justice and good for righteousness and good for equity, every good path.
Lord, we pray, we pray that you would give him all the grace he needs in ways that we just saw in 1 Timothy 2 that lead to peaceful and quiet lives, godly and dignified in every way. God we pray for your blessing in that way upon his family. We pray that you would give them strength, we pray that you would give them clarity, wisdom — wisdom, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Fools despise wisdom and instruction. Please, O God, give him wisdom and help him to lead our country.
Alongside other leaders, we pray today for leaders in Congress, we pray for leaders in courts, we pray for leaders at national and state levels. Please, O God, help us to look to you, help us to trust in your word, help us to seek your wisdom and live in ways that reflect your love and your grace and your righteousness and your justice.
We pray for your blessings on our president toward that end.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
