40 Days of Prayer For America-Day 7

40 days of prayer Praying for our leaders

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” —I Timothy 2:1-2

Five ways we can pray for our leaders

1. That they be God-fearing and recognize that they are
accountable to Him for each decision and act.
(Proverbs 9:10)
2. That they be granted wisdom, knowledge, and
understanding.
(James 1:5)
3. That they be presented with the gospel and a loving
Christian witness.
(Romans 10:14)
4. That, if they are unsaved, they will be drawn to a saving encounter
with Christ; if they are born-again, that they be strengthened and
encouraged in their faith.
(1 Timothy 2:4, Ephesians 1:17-23)
5. That they recognize their own inadequacy and pray and
seek the will of God.
(Proverbs 3:5-8, Luke 11:9-13
