October 29: A Prayer of Wisdom and Direction for the United States Presidential Elections

One True Living God, we thank You for the United States of America.  Thank You for Your grace, favor and mercy that You have shown this great nation over the years.  Thank You for allowing our citizens the opportunity to vote for the men and women who will represent us.  The earth is Yours Lord, and everything in it.  The world and all its people belong to You. Father, You laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths.  Your eternal Word stands firm in heaven.  Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth You created.

Magnificent Father, voters will elect our next United States of America President and Vice President on Tuesday, November 8th.  As the people of God, we come before You now, crying out for wisdom and discernment for all November 8.  AS People of registered American voters.  We declare that our voters will not be moved or motivated by race, nationality, gender, political alliance, or the media when choosing their candidate for each of these positions.  But, they will seek Your will and trust that You will show them which path to take.  We decree that wisdom will save the voters from evil people and from those whose words are twisted. We command Your Word, which we speak with boldness and faith, to interrupt the airwaves and destroy every word that is spoken by the media that does not align with Your will for these campaigns.  We decree that every attempt to misconstrue the Truth will be confused, in Jesus’ Name.  We declare that the democratic process will be implemented fairly and justly throughout our nation during the elections.  We cancel every assignment of the enemy to cause division or separation among our citizens of America during the elections.

Holy Spirit, please begin to reveal who You would have me to vote for the next United States of America President and Vice President.

Gracious Father, only You know the true heart of man.  Reveal the motives and intents of each candidate.  Just as You clearly identified Saul and later David as kings of Israel, please clearly identify who You have chosen to fill these positions. Encourage the voters to fully educate themselves on each position and candidate.  Please begin to reveal, even now, any potential poling hindrances that would prevent voters from being able to cast their votes.

Merciful Father, forgive the American voters for not always seeking Your will before casting their votes.  Forgive each candidate for any acts of unrighteousness including favoritism, racism, sexism, lying, deceit and manipulation. Forgive the media for partiality and bias.  Forgive those in positions of power who may attempt to skew voting results through voter intimidation, unnecessary redistricting, lies or confusion.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind the presidential candidates and voting citizens 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 show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows 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 the presidential candidates and voting citizens to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.


Triumphant Lord, You are King!  You are robed in majesty and armed with strength.  The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.  Your throne has stood from time immemorial.  You are from the everlasting past.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
