A Declaration of Justice in the United States

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 118:1-9, Psalm 140

 

Reflections of the Heart:

“Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19

 

Scriptural Prayer:

Eternal Father, we thank You for being the just Judge. Thank You for hearing us when we call to You for help for our nation. Thank You for moving on the hearts of Your people to establish peace, justice and righteousness in the earth. Lord, we will praise You with all of our hearts. Your love for us is so very great, we will give glory to Your Name forever! Lord, You have rescued us from the depths of death. We will sing of Your unfailing love forever. Young and old will hear of Your faithfulness. Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.

Immortal Father, we command justice to run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream within our judicial system in America. Your Word says that justice and righteousness are more acceptable to You than sacrifice. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne. We confess that justice and righteousness will prevail in our nation, homes, workplaces, churches, schools and communities. You are the Lord who loves all of humankind; You are no respecter of persons. Lord, You created us in Your image and it is Your desire that we, Your creation, love each other as we love ourselves. Lord, we believe that You will raise us above the injustices of racism that our nation has witnessed lately. And because Your Spirit dwells within us, the Body of Christ, we confess that we will walk in righteousness and integrity. We will not discriminate against anyone because of their race, their sex, or their age. We will not pay back evil with more evil, but we will always do things in such a way that everyone can see that we are honorable.

Holy Spirit, as I watch the news, show me how to pray specifically about the injustices in our nation:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please help our nation to heal from the wounds that the recent instances of injustice have inflicted on the American people. Remind the members of the Body of Christ to not sin by letting anger control them. Grant each of us the desire and commitment to daily walk in Your justice and righteousness without prejudice or partiality. Deal with the hearts of those Christians who practice this ungodliness. Remind them to walk in Your Spirit and not in their flesh. Guide parents on how to talk with their children about this subject in a way that will not instill fear, anger, or hatred. Holy Spirit, I ask that You search my heart for areas of hidden discrimination or bias and remove it immediately from me.

Abba Father, forgive us for any acts of racism, sexism, and ageism. Forgive our nation for its injustice, prejudice, and oppression. Forgive our nation for loving power and things instead of people. Please forgive those persons who are presently practicing racism, sexism, and ageism. As the Body of Christ, we renounce the gods of racism, sexism, and ageism. Forgive me, Father, for not acknowledging that when I make blanket statements about race, sex, or age that I am discriminating. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.

Triumphant King, You are greater than any other god. You do whatever You please throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in their depths. You cause clouds to rise over the earth. You send lightning with the

rain and release the winds from Your storehouses. Your Name, Lord, endures forever, Your fame is known to every generation. Yours, Lord, is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for Our Governmental Leaders (local, state, and national)

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 105:1-8, Psalm 1

Reflections of the Heart:

When God called Moses to lead His people out of Egypt, the Lord reassured Moses that he was capable of accomplishing the job. Just as Moses had faith in God, we must have faith that God will carry out His perfect will here on earth through today’s political leaders. Offering up effective, fervent prayers for our political leaders will definitely benefit our city, state, and nation more than murmuring and complaining ever will. Pray for our local, state, and national political leaders so that we can live in peace.

Scriptural Prayer:

Righteous Father, we thank You for blessing our nation to be a mighty government in the earth. Thank You for allowing us to call upon You in our times of need as a nation. Thank You, Lord, for Your bountiful blessings. We are grateful, and we bless Your Name. You are robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. We praise Your Name, Father, forever and ever. You have all wisdom and power. You control the course of world events; removing kings and setting up other kings. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars. You reveal deep and mysterious things and only You know what lies hidden in darkness, though You are surrounded by light.

Triumphant Father, in obedience to Your Word, we make intercession on behalf of those who are in positions of authority in our city, state and nation; so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. We pray for President Donald Trump, Governor Greg Abbott and all state, and national leaders. We pray for Mayor Sylvester Turner, our city council members and all other local leaders. By faith, we call our local, state, and national leaders saved, sanctified, and filled with Your Holy Spirit. We decree that as our governmental leaders seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, they will receive from You everything they need to lead our nation, state and city. We declare that the decisions made by our leaders will be inspired and directed by the Holy Spirit. We destroy the assignments of the devil and we silence the voice of every demonic force.

Holy Spirit, I commit to pray for the following leaders this month:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask You to fill our city, state, and national governmental leaders with wisdom, understanding, discernment, and knowledge. Grant them favor, increase their faith, and prepare them to pursue Your excellence. Draw them to You and cause them to know and fulfill Your purposes. Please place people in their paths that will provide scriptural, sound and godly counsel; for without Your counsel their plans will go awry. Impart Your wisdom and revelation to them about leadership and help them to lead. Deal with our leaders about keeping their hearts and motives pure. We ask You to make their hearts pliable, willing and obedient to Your will. Cause each of their lives to glorify Your Name.

Loving Father, please forgive our local, state and national governmental leaders for their sins. Forgive those who do not consult with You daily. Forgive them for greed, hypocrisy, injustice, selfish ambitions, pride, arrogance, idolatry, adultery, slander, sexism, elitism, oppression, partiality, lust, manipulations, lying, ungodliness, fornication, homosexuality, perversion, and all other acts of sinfulness. Lord, forgive us for not praying for our leaders consistently. Forgive us, the Body of Christ, for making our political decisions based on the opinions, rhetoric, and untruths of political pundits and talking heads who do not align their agendas with Yours. Forgive those politicians who say they are Christians, but conduct their affairs in a manner that opposes Your Word. Father, please have mercy on this nation. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind our local, state and national governmental leaders of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them to you, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our local, state and national governmental leaders not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.

Holy, Holy, Holy, are You, the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is and is to come. You alone are God. You are subject to none, yet all are subject to You. Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for Health Care in the United State

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 46, Psalm 27

 

Reflections of the Heart:

“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” 3 John 2

 

Scriptural Prayer:

 

Glorious Father, we thank You for the blood of Jesus which covers us and protects us from  harm, including disease. Thank You for blessing our nation with the best medical care in the world. Thank You for being the Lord who heals! Lord, we will sing of Your unfailing love forever! Young and old will hear of Your faithfulness. Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens. All of heaven will praise Your great wonders, myriads of angels will praise You for Your faithfulness. Who in all of heaven can compare with You, Lord? What mightiest angel is anything like You? The highest angelic powers stand in awe of You. You are far more awesome than all who surround Your throne!

 

Redeeming Father, we commit the American Health Care system to You and command justice to run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream for the American people. We thank  You for every health care professional and declare that they will seek Your wisdom and knowledge and always pursue excellence in their chosen fields. They will be dedicated to the proper care and treatment of their patients and they will remember to show their patients mercy, just as You have shown mercy to them. Lord, You detest the use of dishonest scales, but You delight in accurate weights. So we rebuke the spirits of greed and injustice within the  insurance industry that has prevented many Americans from being able to afford quality health coverage that will meet their family’s needs without bankrupting their budget. Your Word admonishes that everything should be done properly and in order so we command the American health care system to line up with Your Word now, in Jesus’ Name.

 

List your concerns about the American Health Care System. Now take those concerns to the Lord in prayer:

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, please give the uninsured the wisdom and direction as they navigate through the Affordable Care Act and help them to find coverage that will meet their budget. Show business owners new ways to generate increased revenue to cover the cost of offering health insurance to their employees. Lord, we ask that the wait times for appointments at the VA Hospital will be shortened and that each veteran will be treated with dignity and respect. Holy Spirit, we ask that You give our government officials the wisdom on how to cut down on the redtape that ensnares so many veterans from receiving all of the medical benefits they are entitled to. Lord, touch the hearts of the pharmaceutical companies so that they will make needed medications affordable to all Americans. Lord, we cry out for Your intervention and guidance in Jesus’ Name.

 

Loving Father, forgive us as a nation for our many sins. Lord, forgive us for creating a society that allows such a wide disparity between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots.’ Forgive us for greed, arrogance, lack of empathy and compassion, and selfishness. Forgive us for not making a healthy lifestyle a priority. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say,  “I  forgive name  of  person(s).” Now,  trust  the  Lord  to  heal  any  wounds  in  your  soul  caused  by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us all from the evil one.

 

Glorious King, Your eternal Word stands firm in heaven. Your faithfulness extends to  every generation, as enduring as the earth You created. Your regulations remain true to this day, for everything serves Your plans. You are the mighty King, the lover of justice; You established fairness. You have acted with justice and righteousness throughout Israel. We exalt You Lord, our God and bow low before Your feet for You are Holy! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for Economic Development in Our Community

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 108, Genesis 41:47-57

 

Reflections of the Heart:

God believes in economic development. He wants a community to thrive and a nation to flourish. Psalm 33:12 States, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance.”

 

Scriptural Prayer:

 

Almighty Father, we thank You for providing for Your children, during these tough economic times. Thank You for being the source of our supply. We thank You for taking care of us and supplying all of our needs from Your glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Father, You created the heavens and the earth and everything in it. You give breath to everyone and life to everyone  who  walks  the  earth. We will praise Your mighty deeds, O Sovereign Lord. We will tell everyone that You alone are just. We praise You, Lord! Father God, we are joyful because we fear You, Lord, and delight in obeying Your commands. We are blessed to be Your children.

 

Heavenly Father, we expect business leaders in our community to honor Your Word and live by Your precepts. We command light to shine in the darkness for the Godly. We declare that they are generous, compassionate, and righteous. Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly. Such people will not be overcome by evil. Those who are righteous will be long remembered. During the current economic difficulties in our nation and around the world, we claim prosperity for our community. We decree  that the merchants in our community will not fear bad news; they confidently trust You, Lord, to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly. They share freely and give generously to those in need. Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor. The wicked will see this and be infuriated. They will grind their teeth in anger; they will slink away, their hopes thwarted. Lord, we expect You to pour down Your blessings upon our community. We decree that our land will yield its bountiful harvest. Father, we will support the businesses of the Godly men and women in our community.

 

Magnificent Father, touch the hearts of the people in our community to support the businesses. Help the business owners to establish fair and honest business practices so that the residents in our community will enjoy doing business with them. Show the owners and managers new and creative ways to increase their revenue without taking advantage of their customers. Convict the hearts of business owners in all communities who treat their employees and customers poorly. Holy Spirit, help the employees to be diligent, hard working individuals who will work as unto You instead of to man.

 

Make a list of businesses in your community and begin to support them.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Righteous Father, forgive the business owners in our community for all acts of sinfulness. Forgive those  who have not been diligent in seeking Your leadership for their businesses. Forgive those who do not trust in You and Your business principles; but lean on their own understanding. Forgive those who have compromised Your Word in order to make a profit. Forgive those who have not treated their employees and customers fairly. Forgive those who have not properly taken care of or shown respect for the community they live in. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind the business owners in our community of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or  faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help the business owners in our community not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Almighty God, You are awesome in Your sanctuary.  O God of Israel, You give power and strength to Your people. Sovereign Lord, You are great! You are robed with honor and majesty. You are the eternal King. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer Concerning Iran

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 24, Psalm 27

 

Reflections of the Heart:

The Lord is our light and salvation, so why should we be afraid? The Lord is our fortress, protecting us from danger, so why should I tremble? ~Psalm 27:1 NLT

 

Scriptural Prayer:

Sovereign Father, we thank You for protecting our nation, the United States of America. Thank You for honoring our prayers as a nation and extending Your mercy toward us. Thank You for protecting our borders. Thank You for protecting us from the threats of Iran. Your Word is true, and we can trust everything that You do. You love whatever is just and good. Your unfailing love fills the earth.  You merely spoke,  and the  heavens were created; You breathed the Word, and all of the stars were born. You assigned boundaries to the seas and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. Let the whole world fear You and let everyone stand in awe of You! How great is the goodness that You have stored up for those who fear You. You lavish it on those who come to You for protection, blessing them before the watching world.

 

Righteous Father, in the Name of Jesus, we rebuke the spirits of conflict and war. We command peace to be still between the United States and Iran, now! God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we declare that Your very Name keeps us safe from all harm. Father, we admit that we are a pluralistic society that confesses many gods, but there is a remnant in our nation who trusts only in You. Some nations boast of their chariots and horses, their armies  and  weapons,  but  we  will  always  boast  in  the  Name  of  the  Lord,  our  God.  We  declare  that  President Donald Trump, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani will find a diplomatic solution and will not react hastily with the actions of war, but they will respond out of wisdom. They will turn from evil and do good. They will search for peace and work to maintain it.

 

Holy Spirit, I pray specifically the following for President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani:

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, help the citizens of our nation and Iran to discern through the rhetoric and propaganda surrounding this situation so that the truth is revealed and every lie exposed. Holy Spirit, grant President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Your supernatural wisdom and discernment. Help them to make decisions that  align  with  Your  will  to  keep  people  safe. Holy  Spirit, please reveal  and  expose  every  evil  plot, plan  and strategy that have been devised against our nation both internally and externally. Stir the hearts of Christians around the world to pray; please, do not stop until we all respond.

 

Merciful Father, please forgive the leaders and citizens of our nation and Iran for all acts of sinfulness including not acknowledging Your Son, Jesus, as Lord. Forgive our nation for the  innocent  blood  that  we  have  shed. Forgive the American Church for our ignorance concerning this conflict and for failing to pray consistently for this region.  Lord,  forgive  me  for (list  any  sins  that  you  have  committed). Holy  Spirit,  remind  the  citizens  of  our nation and Iran of those we need to forgive and help us all to forgive. Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord  to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help the citizens of our nation and Iran not to yield to temptation but deliver us all from the evil one.

 

You are the Lord, our God, and there is no other.  No one is holy like You.  There is no one besides You. There is no Rock like You, our God. Lord, You are the King of kings and Lord of lords. You rule and reign forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

 

Scripture  References  for  Written  Text: Psalm 33:4-8, Psalm 31:19, Mark 4:39, Exodus  3:15, Psalm 20:7, Psalm 34:14, Matthew 6:13, I Samuel 2:2, Revelation 19:16

A Prayer for the United States Economy

Scripture Reading: Psalm 104:24-34, Proverbs 2:1-15

Reflections of the Heart:

The currency we use in America is marked with the statement, “In God We Trust.” If we do trust in God, then we must prove it with our actions. Therefore, let us repent for living beyond our means, for loving money and using people, and for not putting God’s will first. Let’s trust Him today.

Scriptural Prayer:

Gracious Father, we thank You for being faithful to the United States of America throughout our history. Thank You for blessing us to prosper and to grow from generation to generation. Thank You for keeping our nation through our economic hardships and financial conflicts. You have been merciful, Lord. This whole earth, everything in it, and the people who inhabit it belong to You, O God. It is You who supplies us with abundance. It is You who sustains us in times of lack. Your instructions are perfect, they revive our souls. Your commandments are clear and right. They give us insight for living. We, Your children, delight in them and love to meditate on them day and night. We are grateful that You are willing to bear the heavy burdens of our nation so that we are free to worship You and receive rest. Dear Father, it is You who strengthens our nation and holds us up with Your victorious right hand!

Holy Father, we command the economic infrastructure of the United States to submit to Your will. We confess that the hope of our nation’s citizens will no longer be deferred. Lord, we expect that You will raise up people within our nation’s financial leadership who, like Joseph, have a supernatural anointing to receive, interpret, and administrate visions that will save companies, restore jobs, and open new opportunities in stagnant sectors of our economic markets. All-Knowing Father, we decree that Your solution will be sought and revealed in the earth to justify American jobs and encourage innovation and global competitiveness among domestic corporations, giving priority consideration to United States taxpayers. We destroy the works of the spirits of consumption-oriented capitalism, conspicuous consumption, greed, avarice, fear, perversion, uncertainty, and inefficiency. In Jesus’ Name, we command prosperity to come from the north, south, east, and west into the economy of the United States of America.

Holy Spirit, I commit to praying specifically for the following corporations and industries:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Glorious Father, we pray that Your generous outpouring of wisdom, discernment, and divine understanding will be gladly received by our economic and government leaders. Holy Spirit, we ask You to strategically assign men and women who are fully equipped to reveal creative ideas and effective methods to the presidential economic team. Show them how to decrease our national deficit while continuing to provide the necessary standards, services, and benefits to the American people. Holy Spirit, please revive the Body of Christ and remind us of who we are − the light of the world and the salt of the earth. Give us divine motivation to boldly declare the Word of God so that those who have become captives of this world’s system can be liberated. Help us, as a nation, to reconnect to the Living God as our source and supply, and remove any thoughts of doubt, fear, or dismay.

Loving Father, we repent on behalf of our nation for our many sins. We acknowledge that many of us played an active role in causing the downturn of our economy. Forgive us for greed, arrogance, selfishness, and oppression of the poor. Forgive our CEOs for overcompensating themselves and placing their employees and companies in jeopardy in order to maintain their lavish lifestyles and greedy appetites. Forgive those consumers who acted out of impulse and impatience and made unwise choices, landing them and their families in tremendous debt. Merciful Father, please forgive our nation for being selfish, reckless, and irresponsible with the blessings You intended to be handed down to the generations following us. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused byunforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us, as a nation, not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.

Omnipotent God, how great are Your riches and wisdom and knowledge! You are the God who does great things too marvelous to understand. It is You who performs countless miracles. We praise You, Lord! Let everyone on earth bless Your holy Name forever and ever! Everything comes from You and exists by Your power and is intended for Your glory. All glory to You forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for President Donald Trump, His Administration and Congress

Scripture Reading: Psalm 50:1-6, I Timothy 2:1-6

Reflections of the Heart: “A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.”– John C. Maxwell.

Scriptural Prayer:

Almighty Father, thank You for blessing our country, the United States of America. Thank You for being patient with our leaders and the people of our nation despite all the rancor and division. Thank You for continuing to pour out Your Spirit over this nation and advancing Your Kingdom on earth. We appreciate Your loving-kindness and tender mercies. Father, we come singing a new song to You, for You have done wonderful deeds. With all that we are, we will praise You, our Lord and God; for You are great! You are robed with honor and majesty. You are dressed in a robe of light. You stretch out the starry curtain of the heavens; You lay out the rafters of Your home in the rain clouds. You make clouds Your chariot; You ride upon the wings of the wind.

Righteous Father, Your Word declares that all authority comes from You, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by You. With this in mind, we submit President Donald Trump, his administration and Congress. By faith, we declare that the leaders of our nation who know You, will trust in You with all of their hearts and not depend on their own understanding. They will seek Your will in all that they do and as they do this, we trust that You will show them which path to take as they lead and direct this nation. We declare that they will not be impressed with their own wisdom, but instead they will fear You and turn away from evil. Your Word admonishes that a house divided against itself cannot stand. We decree that the members of Congress will work together towards the good of the American people. We declare that they will turn away from division and evil and do good; they will search for peace and work to maintain it.

Holy Spirit, how I can pray specifically for President Trump, his administration and Congress:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Triumphant God, please arise in our government and cause Your enemies of racism, partiality, confusion and discord to be scattered. Holy Spirit, please continue to pour Your wisdom, discernment and power into our leaders. Continue to surround them with favor as they conduct business with Congress and world leaders. Please give them Your ideas to conquer the issues that are plaguing our nation including the environment, education, unemployment, economy, healthcare, national security, and the natural disasters that have devastated our nation. Continue to touch the Body of Christ to pray for all government leaders so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by Godliness and dignity.

Righteous Father, please forgive our leaders for injustice, imperialism and a form of capitalism that is oppressive and subversive. Forgive those for racism, sexism, ageism, idolatry, lying, deceit and character assassination. Forgive those for being self -serving, boastful, proud and arrogant. Forgive those who do not acknowledge Your authority and compromise Your truth. We realize that all our sins are many! Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind President Donald Trump, his administration and Congress of those they need to forgive and help them to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help President Donald Trump, his administration and Congress not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.

Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to You forever and ever. You are the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end. You are the One who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer Against Terrorism in the World

Scripture Reading:Psalm 9:1-12, Psalm 91

Reflections of the Heart: Merriam Webster defines “terror” as extreme fear. Do not fear! The Lord is our light and salvation, so why would we be afraid? The Lord is our fortress, protecting us from danger, so why would we tremble? Psalm 27:1 NLT

Scriptural Prayer:

Our Father, we thank You for being our Protector. Thank You for extending Your mercy and grace towards the nations around the world who are experiencing terrorism. Thank You for helping military personnel, law enforcement and intelligence agencies as they counter terrorism. Thank You for hearing the prayers of the righteous worldwide and sending Your angels to fight supernaturally. Thank You for protecting our nation. We realize that it is only by Your grace that we are not experiencing the same acts of terrorism. We give thanks to You, Lord, for You are good and Your mercy endures forever. By Your Word, the heavens were created. You merely spoke, and the heavens were created. You breathed the Word, and all the stars were born. You assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. Let the whole world fear You and let everyone stand in awe of You. When You spoke, the world began and appeared at Your command!

Almighty Father, by the authority given to us in Jesus’ Name, we command peace be still! We rebuke the spirit of terror and cancel the schemes and assignments of every evil spirit, including the spirits of deception, rebellion, and confusion that are in alignment with the spirit of terror. We command every person worldwide who is plotting against the good of humanity be exposed and captured. We decree that the love of Christ will saturate this international crisis. We declare healing to every person who was injured in the bombing attacks and, in Jesus’ Name, we speak healing to the minds and souls of the families who are mourning the death of a loved one. Lord of Heaven’s Armies, we are expecting to witness Your mighty power against this evil and see a mighty outpouring of Your love through the Body of Christ. Father, with people some things are impossible, but with You all things are possible. We are trusting in You!

As you watch the news, jot down those areas of the world that are under attack from terrorists and ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom on how to pray:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please comfort the people around the world who have experienced shooting, bombings and all other terroristic acts. Confuse and scatter the masterminds who are behind the evil works of terrorism. Continue to work with authorities to uncover and destroy the network operations of ISIS and all other terrorist groups. Touch the hearts of family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers to report person(s) who are involved with any terrorist organizations. Holy Spirit, amplify the voices of Your missionaries who are praying and teaching the Gospel in this part of the world. Please protect them as they carry out Your work. Touch the hearts of all Christians to pray for all the nations, including our own. We ask You to increase Your discernment, wisdom, knowledge, boldness, confidence and peace in our President and all world leaders as they collaborate to combat this seemingly impossible dilemma.

Merciful Father, forgive the terrorists for their murderous acts. Forgive us all for our many sins. Forgive those who rebel against You and Your Word. Please extend Your mercy to all the nations of the world who have been attacked by terrorists; to refugees fleeing the violence; and those who have lost loved ones. They need Your help! We all need Your help! Forgive those of us for not consistently praying about terrorism in the world and for being insensitive about the injustices and atrocities occurring inother parts of the world. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit,remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help those devastated by terrorism not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.

Great and marvelous are Your actions, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints. Who will not fear You and glorify Your Name? You alone are Holy. All nations will come and worship before You, for Your righteous deeds have been revealed. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for Political Leaders

Scripture Reading: Psalm 99:1-5, Psalm 1

We praise Your Name, Father, forever and ever. You have all wisdom and power. You control the course of world events, removing and setting up other kings. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars. You reveal deep and mysterious things, and only You know what lies hidden in darkness, though You are surrounded by light. Father, we thank You for our political leaders. Thank You for blessing all nations to be a mighty government in the earth. Thank You for allowing us to call upon You in our times of need as a nation. Thank You, Lord, for Your bountiful blessings. We are grateful, and we bless Your Name.

Righteous Father, in obedience to Your Word, we make intercession on behalf of those who are in positions of authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. We pray for the Presidents, Kings, Queens, Prime Ministers, Emirs, Emperors and all political heads of states and governments. Lord, You aren’t slow about Your promise, as some people think. You are patient for our sake, not wanting any of our leaders to be destroyed, but You want them to repent. By faith, we call our leaders saved, sanctified, and filled with Your Holy Spirit. We declare that our political leaders will not follow the advice of the wicked or stand around with sinners or join in with mockers. They will delight in Your law and will meditate on it day and night. As they do this, Father, we confess that they will be like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves will not wither, and whatever they do will prosper for the good of the world.

Holy Spirit, reveal how I can pray for political leaders. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask You to fill our leaders with Your Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, and knowledge. Grant them favor, increase their faith, and prepare them to pursue Your excellence. Draw our leaders to You and cause them to know and fulfill Your purposes. Please place people in their paths who will provide scriptural, sound and godly counsel to help them; for without Your counsel, their plans will go awry. Impart Your revelation to them about leadership and help them to lead. Deal with our leaders about keeping their hearts and motives pure. We ask You to make their hearts pliable, willing and obedient to Your will. Cause each of their lives to glorify Your Name. Father, we ask You to raise up modern-day Davids, Solomons, Josephs, Nehemiahs, Deborahs, Ruths and Esthers who will joyfully and purposefully work in the political sector to help rebuild and restore all nations.

Forgiving Father, please forgive political leaders for all acts of sinfulness, including jealousy, contempt, pride, bitterness, criticism, lying, gossiping, hatred, grudges, revenge and misappropriation of governmental funds. Forgive them when they engage in deceitful acts and oppressive practices such as evading questions, exaggerating the truth, and not striving to provide the basic needs, food, housing and employment to the people they serve. Forgive those politicians for expecting to be forgiven by You when they choose not to forgive others for past offenses. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind all political leaders of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help political leaders not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.

Holy, Holy, Holy, are You, the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is and is to come. You alone are God. You are subject to none, yet all are subject to You. Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for Justice

Scripture Reading: Psalm 27:1-6, Amos 5:6-15, 24

Eternal Father, we thank You for being the just Judge. Thank You for hearing us when we call to You for help. Thank You for moving on the hearts of Your people to establish peace, justice and righteousness in the earth. Lord, we will praise You with all of our hearts. Your love for us is so very great; we will give glory to Your Name forever! Lord, You have rescued us from the depths of death. We will sing of Your unfailing love forever. Young and old will hear of Your faithfulness. Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.

Immortal Father, we command justice to run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream within all judicial systems through the world. Your Word says that to do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to You than sacrifice; both are the foundation of Your throne. We confess that justice and righteousness will prevail in all nations, political arenas, workplaces, schools and communities. You are the Lord who loves all of humankind and You show no favoritism. Lord, You created us in Your image and it is Your desire that we, Your creation, love each other as we love ourselves. Therefore, we will not discriminate against anyone for any reason. We will not pay back evil with more evil, but we will act in ways that give You glory.

Holy Spirit, I ask that You search my heart for areas of hidden discrimination or bias. (Make a list of things that need to be removed).

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, help us to heal from the wounds of injustice. Stir up righteous indignation and action within us against any systems or practices that favor one person or group over another because of race, sex, age, income or a history of entitlement. Grant in each of us the desire and commitment to walk in Your justice without prejudice or partiality. Help us to live in accord with You so that we live lives of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Please deal with the hearts of those who practice ungodliness and teach them how to walk in Your Spirit and not in their flesh.

Merciful Father, forgive us for all acts of sinfulness, including, strife, discord, jealousy, rivalries, violence, hatred, oppression, greed, idolatry and pride. Forgive those who hold malice and hatred in their hearts against others who are not like them. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals to you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.

Triumphant King, You are greater than any other god. You do whatever pleases You throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in their depths. You cause the clouds to rise over the whole earth. You send the lightning with the rain and release the winds from Your storehouses. Your Name, O Lord, endures forever; Your fame, O Lord, is known to every generation. Yours is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
