Pray For Our President

Today is inauguration day in Washington DC.  President Obama will be sworn in publicly as the President of the United States.  I want to encourage Christians today to pray for President Obama and his family.  Pray specifically these things:

  • His salvation along with the salvation of his family (1 Timothy 2:1-6).
  • Pray for God to grant him wisdom to lead (Proverbs 21:1).
  • Pray for the Holy Spirit to convict him of sin when he sins or when he seeks to pass legislation based on greed, politics, or corruption (John 16:8-11).
  • Pray for his eyes to be opened to the sinful decisions he has already made about abortion, homosexuality, and many other issues.
  • Pray for God to be glorified in Obama’s second term as President (Daniel 4:32) and  rejoice that God’s kingdom will crush all kingdoms including the kingdom of the United States (Daniel 2:44).
  • Rejoice that Jesus is still Lord of all despite Obama being in the White House and He shall reign forever and ever (1 Timothy 6:15-16).
  • Pray for the Democratic Party to turn away from a platform based on Romans 1:18-32 and its full rejection of God.  Pray for God to have mercy and for Obama to turn the party away from ungodliness toward righteousness by the sovereign grace of God (Titus 1:1).

I also urge you to intercede for Congress and for state and local leaders taking office across the United States.  Pray the same for them as above.  Most important for the disciple of Christ is the understanding that Jesus is Lord of all (Romans 10:9-10) and He will crush all kingdoms by His own power and in His own timing (Acts 1:7).
