40 Days of Prayer for America Day 8
Praying for Local Leaders
Lord, I pray that the leaders in our city and local area would lead with integrity, honesty and fairness. May they be hungry for the power of God and not be power-hungry for control that will not last. May all of the people I pray for now lead with justice, grace and mercy as they serve our community for Your glory: the Mayor; judges, court officials for the city and county, members of the Police Department and Fire Department and other civic leaders.
Lord we pray for future leaders who will be elected on November 8th and for existing leaders in our state governments.
So, first and foremost, I urge God’s people to pray. They should make their requests, petitions, and and thanksgiving on behalf of all humanity. Teach them to pray for kings or anyone in high places for that matter so hat we can lead quiet, peaceful lives-reverent, godly, and holy..
