50 Days of Prayer – Oregon Coast
Government Leaders and Laws
1 Tim 2:1-2 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
Jeremiah 29:7 And seek the peace of the city (state) where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace. (paraphrased)
Almighty God, whose glory is in the fall of the world, the fountain of wisdom, who’s law is truth, and righteous judge of all the earth.
Grant to all of those in administrative authority the wisdom, love, and strength to know You and to do Your will. Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness and make them ever mindful of their calling to serve the people of our great state.
We ask for You to guide and bless our Governor, our state Senators and representatives, our county commissioners, and city counselors. May they enact laws that shall please You, to the glory of Your name and the welfare of Your people. We ask for Your wisdom to find ways to overturn laws which bring defilement to our land. We pray for righteousness and Truth to prevail when these issues are brought to light. Turn our leader’s hearts toward You.
We humbly ask You to bless the courts of Justice and the magistrates in all this land; and give to them the spirit of wisdom and understanding, that they may discern the truth, and impartially administer the upright law in the fear of You alone. O Lord, bless the leaders of our land, that with steadfast purpose they may faithfully serve in their offices to promote the well-being of all people; that we may be at peace among ourselves and be a blessing to other nations of the earth, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen
*Help me Lord to pray for those who are in authority. Help me to be involved in the process of democracy. Give me Your vision and remind me of Your Word when I vote. Help me to place people in authority who will honor Your precepts. Speak to my heart about how to engage. Do you want me to pray? Do you want me to write letters? I am listening. _______________
