Loving Our Leaders in Prayer

Heavenly Father, You create all nations. In answer to our prayers, and more importantly, in accordance to Your Purpose for a Nation, You promote and demote our leaders. Many times, these leaders do not look like anything we had in mind when we prostrate our lives before Your Throne. But You love us, and our nations more than we ever could. Your Mind and Ways are Higher than ours. Thank You for answering and sustaining Your Purposes for us, by being LORD over our Leaders.

Your Word commands us to honor, to pray for our leaders because it is You that appoints every authority. It does not matter whether they deserve it or not, that remains Your Command. Your Word warns us against doing any harm to them. Your Word says, that the heart of the king is in Your Hands, and that You direct it as a watercourse whichever way You Will. It is You Lord, Who both hardens and softens the hearts of our leaders for Your purposes. Either to build or tear down. Your Word calls us to find out what pleases You and incline our lives towards that. We desire Your blessing Lord. So today, I stand in the gap, to thank You for each and every authority You have set up and sustained over us.

We repent of the times when we have refused them honor until they manifested, changed to be who we want them to be – even when that is in conflict with who You intend them to be, for the times and seasons as You have decreed them. We commit them back to You, that You would work into them Your excellent purposes for our nations, and for us. Whether its a season of discipline or a season for comfort and thriving, we call You Lord, and submit to Your Excellence for us and our nations.

Just in case we forgot to thank You for our leaders after the last election, or whichever way they came to power, forgive us Lord God. Thank You for the Leaders You have blessed us with. Thank You because You chose well for us, and that good or bad, their legacy will be used by You to work out your Excellent will and Purpose for this our Nation. You Alone are God and we place our Governments, our Homes on the Shoulders of YHWH Emmanuel. For I have prayed these, seeking only Your Excellence, in His Name, in The Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, our Savior. Amen.


About viphealthyleadership
I am a friend of God, who loves to listen to, and talk to Him and write to and through Him. My prayer concerns revolve mainly around homes and nations, and how Christ's wounded warriors can arise and get involved again in the building of these and in the repairwork needed to restore these to their God-intended glory. I believe that true and effective leadership, can only come from those who have been wounded, recognised their wounds for what they are, and have allowed God to heal these and make them stronger in loving the ones they would lead. I am a mother of two: Leroy and Shukurani and a grandmother of one - Giovanni Gett.
