Prayer for Our President
[Beginning 9/25, and continuing through Election Day, November 3rd, GiveHim15 is joining forces with many other national prayer ministries in 40 Days of Prayer for America. Dave Kubal of Intercessors for America provides today’s prayer focus.]
“”Unhinged. Unfit to Serve. Impeachment.’
“You have heard these words connected with President Donald J. Trump. The constant stirring of animosity has spilled into, or so it seems, every form of public life. Polarizing politicization is whipped up to drive ratings in what appears to be an effort to neuter the impact of this President.
“Yet we know the scriptures: ‘For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ God created Donald Trump, just like He created any previous and future President, and God created that person to do ‘goods works.’
“What is interesting in this passage is that God created these good works ‘in advance.’ This phrase indicates that the list of President Trump’s heavenly accomplishments existed before he took office. He has accomplished much, but is there more? Could some of the items on the list only be unlocked through the prayers of the Church?
“Now, it is left to the mysterious combination of President Trump’s effort, our prayers, and the sovereign will of God to play out. Your assignment is simple: pray.”
“For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10; NLT)
Points for Prayer (By, Dave Kubal):
Pray every “good work” our President was created to accomplish would be accomplished. Pray God would strengthen him to focus on the task and not the criticisms. Pray God would quiet the civil acrimony.
A Prayer You Can Pray:
Father, we want to thank You for protecting our president and First Lady Melania. May they continue to heal completely from any effects of COVID-19 on their bodies. You have set a course for President Trump and we want to see him complete it. By Your grace, he has accomplished many good things, but we believe there is more for him to do. The nation is moving toward life. It is moving back to its constitutional foundations. Our First Amendment rights are being secured. The battle over religious freedom continues to be contentious in some states, but overall, this president has made sure those freedoms remain. For these reasons and more, the nation is strongly divided. Your Church is even strongly divided over political matters. It seems the barrage of disparaging remarks and criticism against the president is absolutely unending. It is as if President Trump cannot do anything right in the eyes of governing officials in his opposing party, the media, and other influential people. Help him to ignore the criticism and focus on the task at hand. Let him listen only to that which is truly helpful and wise. All the rest can fall by the wayside. And, Lord, we ask You to heal our divided nation. Only You can. It is impossible for man to do so. Our emotions are so stirred up! We desperately need You to interrupt the chaos with a holy Great Awakening. We join You in it, Jesus! Amen!
We will pray for President Trump, so that he can fulfill all that God placed him in office to complete.
