“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2
Tomorrow, Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America.
We desire and pray that God will give him wisdom to pilot the affairs of America at this critical time, and that during his tenure, God’s work will flourish all over the world.
I want to also seize this opportunity to call on us to dedicate today and tomorrow and pray for our communities and countries.
As you can see, our states, our cities, and our neighborhoods desperately need the life-giving renewal and redemption that flow from Christ’s life, death and resurrection.
Praying for the Church and the Work of God in our cities is one of the beautiful ways we join God in His renewal and redemption of our city. Let us be a people who are marked not just by lives on mission in the everyday, but people who intercede daily and earnestly on behalf of our cities.
Our goal in today’s prayer focus is to pray for our land. The Bible says:
“Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.” – Psalm 122:6 (NLT)
Your Jerusalem is your immediate community, neighborhoods and country. Taking out time to regularly pray for its peace and security is God’s will for us.
We urge all brethren, all participants and everyone joining us in this fast to spend this day praying and talking to God about their communities. Pray for the light of God to manifest and that the Work of God will prosper in the land.
Pray for protection and for the salvation of people in the land. Pray for revival.
Pray for the leaders.
Pray that all the plans and works of the devil be arrested and destroyed over the land.
Pray all manner of prayers for your community, state and country and release God’s blessings over the land.
