We are urged by God, through the Apostle Paul, to pray for everyone, especially for all those in authority over us (1 Tim. 2:1-2). Here are six points of prayer for our leaders and for our country.
1. For Boarder Security
- For the thousands of migrant people gathering on the southern boarder: that they would go back home, because they (as a group) have already demonstrated their bad behavior, and so they have already ruined their opportunity to enter.
- For especially those migrants who have demonstrated their criminal intentions, that they would be prosecuted and sent back home.
- That all innocent migrants (who need asylum) would eventually have their needs met, that God would deal favorably with them and would show them what to do.
- For ICE, the National Guard, and the U.S. military: for wisdom and strength and courage while they defend the boarder.
- That our government would quickly come up with the money to build the boarder wall.
- To get more people to process all those who are applying for asylum, in order to speed up the process. If people are asking for asylum we should be able to quickly process them and give it to all those who qualify. But many will not qualify.
- To find a way to educate those who are seeking to come and work in our country legally. To show them how to enter legally.
2. For President Trump
For strength, health and wisdom as he is doing the important work of the county. Pray also that he will have extra patience and resilience to face all the verbal attacks and unjust investigations against him.
3. For the Trump Administration
Strength and endurance to continue the fight against those who are resisting our government. To fight for truth and justice in all areas of government. That all people who are seeking to do harm to this administration would be weeded out and fired. To quickly find replacements for those fired.
4. “God, End the Mueller investigation”
It is a witch hunt and unjust. Also, any others who are planning more investigations against Trump; that they would be frustrated in their attempts and all such attempts would be abandoned.
5. For the office of the Attorney General
- For our temporary AG, that his work would be effective for as long as he is in office.
- Pray that we would find a good new AG that will serve our country well and carry out his duties with courage and righteousness.
6. For Crimes against the United States
Pray that all those who have committed crimes against the U. S. and against this administration would be quickly prosecuted. “Let NO guilty person go unpunished!”
Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
