Praying for President Trump in a Season of Turmoil

It has been a tumultuous week. Many changes have occurred in the President’s staff and Cabinet. Many changes may still need to happen. Some of those who are now ousted or moved around have been in place for just a few months and Anthony Scaramucci for just a few days! The prophets said this was coming! President Trump is a very bold man. No one could ever accuse him of not speaking his mind! One Christian prophet has likened him to General Patton – a man respected by those he led, but who was rough around the edges. I’ve always liked Patton. I do, however, see a need for the President to seek God, not just his advisors, for increased wisdom.

The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit.” (Proverbs 16:1-2; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Ask God to give our president increased, and increasing, wisdom.

  2. Intercede for him in this season of upheaval, asking God to use the challenges to draw him close and teach him His ways.

  3. Pray that President Trump’s staff, cabinet members and advisors would be men and women of consistent prayer, that their advice will be more and more God’s advice.

  4. Declare that our president will never lose his boldness – in fact, it will keep increasing!

  5. Pray that his new appointments to staff, cabinet and courts be God’s best choices!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I am asking You to give President Trump wisdom. I respect him, but in areas where he may not be using Your wisdom, Show him Your ways. I say he is going to grow in wisdom. May he never lose his boldness! Let his boldness be more and more tempered by Holy Spirit and by wisdom. I pray that as long as he is in the White House, he will have a backbone of steel. When he knows that something is right, don’t let him bend. I’m asking You to show him what to do as he appoints judges and cabinet members, that he never deviates to the right or the left, but that he always appoints the ones that You want. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God has started and will continue to move through President Trump to get this nation on His track!
