Almighty Sabaoth, God over the hosts of heaven and of earth, there is none like you, none more righteous or powerful. You hold the hearts of kings in your hand like streams of water. You turn them wherever you will. I pray Scripture over the leaders of my country. I pray for their wisdom and discernment. Remove the chains of the love of money and power. Take the scales from their eyes. I pray for a road to Damascus moment for them. I pray they see Jesus. I pray for their salvation.
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20 ESV)
“Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it completely.” (Proverbs 28:5 ESV)
“So the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; so justice goes forth perverted.” (Habakkuk 1:4 ESV)
“Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands far away; for truth has stumbled in the public squares, and uprightness cannot enter. Truth is lacking, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. The LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice.” (Isaiah 59:14-15 ESV)
“And I will make justice the line, and righteousness the plumb line; and hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and waters will overwhelm the shelter.” (Isaiah 28:17 ESV)
“But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” (Amos 5:24)
May our leaders seek Christ, who “In his humiliation justice was denied him. Who can describe his generation? For his life is taken away from the earth.” (Acts 8:33 ESV)
“I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” (18:8 ESV)
Turn hearts and minds back to you, Father. May Christ find faith on earth at his return to reign. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen
