Prayer for Nations Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in all nations.We lift up Presidents, their families, their staffs and cabinet members. Let your Word cling to them and let them not depart from your plan. Strengthen them with mighty power by your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies and deception. Guide Presidents decisions; let Your light shine upon their path and show them the path of reversal for every evil way. Continually surround them with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to them. Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing. Deliver them from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for them, and let the wicked be caught in their own devices and be brought to shame.
“Jesus came for one reason: to reconcile us to God. God created us, and our lives are only fulfilled when we know Him and follow His will for our lives. But our sins have turned us away from God, and our greatest need is to have our sins forgiven and our lives transformed by His power within us. Through His death on the cross Jesus made this possible, and that is why He came. He declared, ‘For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost’ (Luke 19:10).” —Billy Graham
