40 Days to Save America – Day 13

For 40 Days (September 28 - November 6), I will be posting prayers for our country.  These prayers are from the prayer initiative 40 Days to Save America.  
                                        I pray you will join me in this prayer effort.  
You may sign up to have these prayers mailed directly to you at this link:

Day 13
L-rd, please give our leaders ears to hear Your wisdom and guidance, and the discernment, courage and strength to carry out Your direction. We ask, Father, for You to move their hearts to honor You as their highest Authority.
We pray for wisdom and strength for the President, his cabinet, his administration and his family. We ask that Your Holy wisdom penetrate the thoughts and decision making processes of those in positions of authority. Help all those in authority to recognize they are accountable first to You.
We ask You to instill in our leaders an awareness of the G-dly heritage of this country and their responsibility before You to honor and preserve it. We ask for leaders in all walks of life who sincerely hunger for truth and strive for sacred honor in all they think, say and do. We ask You to guide and guard their motives, desires and plans.
We ask You to raise up G-dly leaders who desire principle over politics. We ask for servant-leaders who desire to be statesmen over politicians. We ask for religious leaders who understand You and are devoted to Your Truth and proclaim it boldly.
We ask for You to prosper and give favor to those who are truly devoted to You, that they may grow in influence and effectiveness. We ask for Your transforming power to work in the lives of those who would deceive, divide and destroy. In Yeshua' name, Amen.
