Government

 

As citizens of the United States, we are priviledged to participate in the legislative process through our vote.  As believers in Jesus Christ, we have another way to participate - through prayer!

Eph 3:10 tells us that "His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.."

God's church, His people are the legal voice on earth to speak God's will.  In this section, you will find prayer alerts and guides to prompt you as you pray for our local, state and federal government.  Take time to listen for God's voice, to know His will.  Then, decree it to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.  If you are speaking God's Will,,,,it will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Scriptures for Government

As we intercede for our government we are reminded of God's word:

1Tim 2:1.........Heavenly Father, I give thanks for our government.
1 Tim 2:2........I pray for all men and women having authority over us in any way.
Prov. 1:23......Pour out Your Spirit upon them and make Your Word known to them.
Ps 25:21........Cause them to be men and women of integrity, obedient concerning us,
1 Tim 2:2.......that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, in all godliness and honesty.
Prov. 2:10......Let wisdom enter their hearts, and let knowledge be pleasant to them.
Prov. 2:11......Let discretion preserve them and understanding keep them,
Prov. 2:12.......to deliver them from the way of evil and from evil men.

Intercede For Our Government

  • Pray for Godly leaders and laws to be put in place.
  • Where there is immorality pray to see Godly virtue.
  • Where there is corruption pray to see leadership above reproach.
  • Pray that leaders of America will promote and sustain a Biblical worldview and establish a Republic that is built upon and perpetuates Biblical values.
  • Pray for current legislation before the state legislators.  Current bills can be found at http://www.frc.org/tracker.
  • Pray for military bases within Colorado—especially for funding and issues concerning DODT (Don't ask; don't tell).
  • Pray about border/security issues/threats within Colorado.

Much of how God relates to the future of a nation is based upon how the people in that society pray. The future of a society does not belong to sinners; it belongs to those who pray. Thus, Jesus tells His disciples that whatever two of them agree on "about anything that they may ask" (Matthew 18:19), it will be granted by the heavenly Father. Two or three servants of God who refuse to abandon their faithfulness in prayer can release the mercy of God into their world.

Prayer for Leaders - After God's Own Heart

Posted in Government

Almighty God,

Your Word tells us, "The eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His." You see past our appearance, our education, our occupation, our experience, and You see into our hearts. And those who’s hearts are completely Yours find uncommon strength from You.

Lord, as we enter into the upcoming congressional elections, we ask that You would give us leaders who are men and women after Your own heart.

Give us leaders who will lead with integrity and truth. May they be men and women of conviction who are more concerned about doing what is right than about securing a high approval rating.

Prayer our Nation

Prayer for America

    Heavenly Father, I come to You now in the Name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father, I thank you that  can abide under the shadow of my Almighty God. I thank You that a thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand, but none will come near me. I thank You that You have given Your angels charge over me to keep me in all of my ways.

    I humble myslef before you and seek your face and turn from my wicked ways of prayerlessness, pride and rebellion against you and your word. Like all sheep, I have gone astray and left my first love of You and allowed the standard of Christ to be let down in our nation.  Forgive me Father, for I have sinned and done evil in Your sight.

    Heavenly Father, I pray for the President of this nation, all of the Executive Branch of this nation and all members of Congress of this nation, all of the leadership of all local, state, regional, and federal agencies, commissions and governments of this nation. I ask You to guide and direct the leadership of this nation in every way.

Pray for The Military

soldier prayingPlease join us in our prayers for the men and women of the Armed Forces of the United States of America who are now in harm's way in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other parts of the world.  We thank them and their families for their sacrifices.

Genesis 15:1 Do not be afraid, I am your shield, your very great reward.


Thank You, Lord, for the men and women of our armed forces, our firemen, and our police.  Protect them as they protect us.  Defend them as they defend us.  Encourage and strengthen their spirit, soul, and body in the execution of their duties and responsibilities. May they be mentally and physically strong when required to face the challenges of combat.  Undergird them with Your Holy Spirit when they are called upon to endure the hardships of battle.
