Pray for Our President and His Family, revisited

I originally posted this back in February. Given all that is going on in our country at this time I thought it good to revisit this post.

“(1) I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – (2) for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. (3) This is good, and pleases God our Savior, (4) who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (5) For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, (6) who gave Himself for all men – the testimony given in its proper time. (1 Timothy 2:1-6 NIV)

When was the last time you prayed for our president and his family? They need our prayers. I am not going to rant or take sides politically right now. If for nothing else than respect for the office of president, let’s pray for him and his wife and his children. Most of us will never meet him, but we can pray for him. We’ll never meet his wife or children, but we can pray for them.

There are enough people criticizing him and his decisions. There is a place and time for that. There are enough people hoping to vote him out of office during the next election. Like him and his agenda or not, Jehovah God has allowed him to be the president of the United States of America. Almighty God raises up and He lowers down whom He wants to. We need to show the president some respect and pray for him.

Pray that:

1. He, his wife and children will come to a personal relationship with Jesus as Lord and Savior if they don’t now have that.

2. He and his family will be protected from violence and harm.

3. He and his family will be healthy and safe both physically and emotionally.

4. He will be a loving husband and father.

5. He will think clearly and make the right decision and not a politically correct decision.

6. He will be a man of integrity, truthfulness, honor and courage.

7. His closest advisors will come to know Christ as Lord and Savior.

8. He will get godly counsel and follow it and that ungodly counsel will be thwarted.

He may never know we did, but God does. Our God is an awesome God! Let’s pray according to Scripture like He is. Thank you for praying.

Stay faithful and hopeful,

Bill (a fellow-laborer)
