Prayer for the Nation
(excerpt from Pastor Nancy Dufresne)
“1 Timothy 2:1-4 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all (make it a priority), supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour (God is our Savior, not government); Who will have all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
I pray for all those that are in authority on the national, state, and local levels. I lift up the president, vice-president, senate, congress, gov’t agencies, Supreme Court justices, judges, governors, mayors, law enforcement officers, military, and all in authority.
For those leaders that are unsaved, I ask You to send laborers across their paths. Satan, you take your hand off their minds, so that the light of the Gospel may shine in.
Father, I ask You to give wisdom to those in authority to govern in a way that fulfills Your will in the earth and blesses the people – that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
I pray that Your anointing be strong upon them to help them accomplish their task. Give them strength for the task, and keep them by Your power to fulfill Your plan. Surround them with the right people, right words, and right counsel, and expose, protect, and deliver them from wrong people, wrong words, wrong counsel, and from all evil. I say that no weapon formed against them, this administration, or this nation shall prosper. I pray that they and this nation be kept by the power of God and that the angels of Heaven keep them and this nation safe from every harm and strategy of the enemy.
Protect our military, police, and firemen, and help them to be victorious over those causing harm.
2 Thessalonians 3:1,2 “Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.”
I pray and believe for Your Word to have free course and be glorified in this nation, state, and city, and that unreasonable and wicked leaders will be exposed and removed from office, and You raise up right men to serve in those positions.
I pray that unrighteous laws be overturned, and that righteous laws be enacted and upheld. I pray for the hidden things to be revealed. Expose and deliver us from all evil and corruption in our government, judicial system, education system, and media.
I bind the agenda of socialism and any other agenda that would rob this nation of freedom and pray that You deliver us from it, in Jesus’ Name.
You have appointed and anointed men to occupy seats of government, so I pray for victory for all the right candidates in the next elections, that Your will be done. I call for the right men, men of God’s choosing, to come forward to lead, and I seat them in their office. I remove the wrong ones from their positions. They are dismissed, in Jesus’ Name.
Matthew 16:19 “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven (dominion, authority): and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Satan, I bind you and command you to take your hands off this nation, off this state, and off this city. Take your hands off the social, political, and economic arenas. Take your hands off the educational system, judicial system, and media. I loose the power of God to accomplish the will of God, in the Name of Jesus.” **Remember that God gave us authority on the earth. Continue to declare these powerful truths over our nation in the days, months, and years ahead** ~Be Blessed, Jenny
