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.
