Yahweh Sabaoth, you are the Lord of Hosts over the armies of heaven and earth. I come before your throne in humility and reverence, because I know you hear my prayers. You turn the hearts of the kings as the wandering streams. You hold the power over all. I ask that you replace hearts of stone with hearts of flesh that yearn to know your precepts. I pray for just rulers, leaders and magistrates who will bring the morning light of justice, refreshing the people like welcome morning rain. I pray your will over them all in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“When one rules justly over men, ruling in the fear of God, he dawns on them like the morning light, like the sun shining forth on a cloudless morning, like rain that makes grass to sprout from the earth.” (2 Samuel 23: 3b-4 ESV)
