We Must Pray for Our Leaders


The smear campaign by the dishonest and vicious left began immediately against House Speaker Michael Johnson. This is typical. When one who loves the Lord and has a truly biblical worldview gains influence, the progressive left rises up with dishonest attempts to slander and discredit them. This is compounded when the person believes God partnered with our Founding Fathers to birth America.


This opposition comes from the same group that fights for the right to mutilate children, believing adolescents are mature enough to make such a misguided life decision. These individuals also believe they have the right to groom our kids using perverted books and drag queens - from kindergarten onward - while parents who object should be investigated by government agencies as possible terrorists; some even believe the children should be taken from the parents who oppose these evils. Ironic, isn’t it: parents who agree with the left have the parental right to mutilate their child, but parents who believe Scripture don’t have the parental right to stop the mutilation, speak against this evil or the grooming, or even know what is being taught in schools! This is madness.


Those who demand this level of control over us are those who accuse Bible-believing conservatives of wanting to dictate how everyone else lives. It has been appropriately pointed out that what they accuse others of is usually what they are doing themselves. The left wants complete control of America, and that control will mean there is NO influence from God or His Word anywhere in American life except in houses of worship once a week. And be assured, if they achieve their goals, they will eventually dictate what can and can’t be said there, as well - including Scripture. This is already happening in Canada and England, and if not stopped now, is “coming to a city near you.” We sincerely love and pray for the salvation of those on the left, but this does not mean we shouldn’t oppose their plans.


I am urging every church in America that believes in the power of prayer to pray for Speaker Johnson and other God-honoring leaders EVERY time you gather. We cannot continue to send godly leaders off to the war zone of Washington, D.C., and not pray fervently and faithfully for them. Only God can protect their lives, families, and reputations; only He can provide the necessary wisdom, understanding, and favor to give them success. Please ask Him for this!!! Jesus said, “My house shall be called the house of prayer” (Matthew 21:13). Pastors, please make the one you lead a fulfillment of this passage!


Speaker Johnson has said that he loves Psalm 37, calling it his “life’s passage.”(1) This great Psalm could be used as an effective prayer guide for him and other leaders. Here are a few of its verses:


“Do not get upset because of evildoers; do not be envious of wrongdoers. For they will wither quickly like the grass, and decay like the green plants. Trust in the Lord and do good; Live in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it. He will bring out your righteousness as the light, And your judgment as the noonday.” (Psalm 37 1-6; NASB)


“The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled down, Because the Lord is the One who holds his hand.” (Verses 22-24; NASB)


“But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and rescues them; He rescues them from the wicked and saves them because they take refuge in Him.” (Verses 38-40; NASB)


The Attack on Trump

Have you ever seen or heard of any government official attacked and hated as much as Donald Trump? Why is this? Is the vitriol of the left rooted in a passion for justice, as they assert? Hillary Clinton, the Bidens, “Russia collusion” liars, fraudulently obtained FISA warrants, the refusal to prosecute many violent crimes, the refusal to follow our laws at the border, and much more, prove the persecution of Trump is not based on a passion for justice.


Is the hatred of Trump perhaps because of immorality in his past? Based on the lifestyles of the left, that assertion is laughable.


The progressive left hates Trump because his policies - and his determination to implement them - threaten their plans to completely transform America away from our roots and toward other ideals. These ideals need a weakened America (economy, military, education, Marxist ideology, borders, social division and unrest, moral decay, etc.), fewer individual rights (free speech, right to bear arms, religious beliefs, parental rights, voter integrity, limited government), and corruption in government.


When outsider Trump was elected, the momentum of the progressive left was interrupted for possibly the first time in 60 or more years. Trump became a genuine threat to the swamp and its disgusting creatures - in both parties. I don’t believe he had any idea what he was stepping into. How could he have known? None of us knew its depth, breadth, and length. Truth doesn’t matter to the D.C. swamp, nor does the God of truth. Lives don’t matter, nor does the suffering of people. The only thing that matters to the swamp system is power and control.


This system fears Donald Trump like Superman fears kryptonite. If he succeeds, they lose their power. And he now has their playbook, which makes him an even greater threat. He also knows their intentions and the lengths to which they’ll go to accomplish them. If you love the America you once knew and want that America for your children and grandchildren, you should pray for President Trump. The more they attack him, the more convinced I become that he is their greatest threat.


Let’s pray for him, Speaker Johnson, and our nation, using Psalm 37 as a guide.


Pray with me:


Father, You told us not to envy or be upset by evildoers. They and their influence will wither and decay like grass under the heat of Your justice. We ask You to address the slander and false accusations against President Trump and Speaker Johnson. Do this also for those who have worked for and with Trump. Expose the hidden motives of corrupt prosecutors and judges. Dismantle their attacks and remove them from power.


Help these men stand strong, cultivate faithfulness, and delight themselves in You. As they do so, “Bring out your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noonday” sun. Establish their steps. We declare over each of them that “When he falls, he will not be hurled down, because the Lord is the One who holds his hand.” You hold them up, Lord. Even when they make mistakes, keep them from falling and failing.


You say their salvation is from You, Lord; You are their strength in times of trouble, helping them. You said You would rescue them from the wicked when they take refuge in You. Shield them from the attacks, vindicate them, and use them to help restore America. We pray this as well for all the righteous leaders in D.C. who fight for truth and stand for Your ways.


We pray again for the Middle East. End the suffering and violence caused by the powers of darkness. Free the people from this influence and from the hatred of Jews. Please protect the innocent throughout the region and save many.


In closing, we declare once again today that revival is here now. We no longer have to say it is coming; we can say it is here. Give Your people boldness to take action and move into this. Stir them. Cause them to stir themselves up in their faith and gifts. We release power, conviction, strength, and life into the nation now. Wind, blow. Breath, come. River, flow. We ask for and release these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.


Our decree:


We decree that God is sustaining and giving success to the leaders in our nation who stand with Him.
