I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people.
Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4
Our nation needs Your guidance and direction. We humbly ask Your Spirit to intercede for and with the leaders of the nation, giving them the wisdom to make decisions that will honor You. We pray fervently for peace both here and abroad. Let us live a life with reverence for You and with peace in our hearts for our fellow-man. We know this is Your desire. May we always remember and honor You as our God and Savior through Jesus Christ.
