Seating the New Cabinet

During this transition period from the election to Inauguration Day, men and women are being chosen to serve in the highest positions in our government. Let’s take time to pray over each position, asking the Lord to place those HE has prepared for such a time as this!

List of Cabinet positions in order of succession to the Presidency:

The Vice President – Mike Pence The Secretary of State The Secretary of the Treasury The Secretary of Defense The Attorney General Secretary of the Interior Secretary of Agriculture Secretary of Commerce Secretary of Labor Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Secretary of Transportation Secretary of Energy Secretary of Education Secretary of Veterans Affairs Secretary of Homeland Security

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” (Philippians 4:8-9; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. There is a time to educate yourself, so you can pray with understanding. You can learn about each cabinet position here.

  2. Pray for the exact right person to be found and placed for each position above. Pray that there would be no “Judas” among them. Ask the Lord for those He has had in training and preparation behind the scenes.

  3. Take authority against a spirit of confusion. Decree God’s Spirit of Unity over the White House and the Cabinet positions.

  4. Declare, “Our God reigns,” over this administration.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask that You would be sought for Your wisdom and honored in this transitional season. Let President-elect, Donald Trump, Mike Pence and the others tasked with choosing our cabinet members, be led by Your Holy Spirit. Lead me, Holy Spirit, in my prayers for each position, as I educate myself on each one. We close the doors to those that are not Your choice. We close the doors to those who would have a rebellious heart and would undermine the President and Vice President. If there are those You have been preparing for this time in history, it’s time to shine Your light on them and make them known. We take authority over any confusion and speak “Shalom”, the Peace of God, and His Unity into the new Cabinet. We say, “Our God reigns over America!”

Today’s decree:

We decree the intervention of heaven in the choosing and placement of President-elect Trump’s new Cabinet!
