Prayer for Our Nation


Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation.  We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff and cabinet members.  Let your Word cling to them and let them not depart from your plan.  Strengthen them with mighty power by your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies and deception.  Guide President Trump’s decisions; let Your light shine upon his path and show him the path of reversal for every evil way.  Continually surround him with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to him.  Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing.  Deliver them from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for them, and let the wicked be caught in their own devices and be brought to shame. We take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against the United States of America.  Let prideful and lying lips be silenced in Jesus’ name.  We pray that all slanderers will not be established.  We pray for our Congress, our Supreme Court, our Military leaders and our Intelligence agencies, let the wisdom that is from above reign in this nation and be constantly speaking to our leaders.  We exercise the authority you have given us to tread down all the power of the enemy and we cast down and demolish imaginations and arguments that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God, and we bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Jesus Christ.  We bind all spirits of strife and division, civil wars and tumults, spirits of hostility, lawlessness and blasphemy and render them powerless, harmless, and ineffective against us. We speak grace and peace over the United States of America.  We pray and believe for the voice of truth, salvation, revival, a spiritual awakening and restoration to be proclaimed and heard across our land.  We ask that You would grant unto your servants everywhere that with all boldness we may speak your Word Lord, while You stretch out Your hands with signs & wonders in Jesus’ name.  We expect Your mighty work to be done in America and that it becomes a beacon of hope for all people everywhere.  We expect the voice of rejoicing to be heard in our nation for all Your goodness, mercy and prosperity, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
