Heavenly Father,
Scripture urges us to bring
Petitions, prayers and intercessions
For all people—for kings and all in authority.

Today, we want to humbly lift our president.
You have given him a heavy load,
To lead a nation in crisis, while
Facing devils at every turn.

We pray against their schemes.
May those who seek his demise,
As well as our country’s,
Fall on the very traps they have set out for us.

Above all we pray that You would guard his heart.
Twist and turn as You will, Father,
Prune Him and change Him
To seek You more every day.

Let Your Word be ever present in his ear.
Surround him by godly men and women
Full of wisdom and unselfishness,
And give him spiritual vision—Your discernment.

Keep him healthy and energized.
Give him understanding and insight,
May he not be led astray,
May he walk in the light.

Keep his ways straight,
Let him hold fast to repentance and forgiveness,
As he carries his cross daily.
Bring him encouragement from unexpected places.

Grant him to follow the path of the righteous,
May he trust You in every way and
Never lean on his own understanding,
May he acknowledge You in every way.

We pray for his family.
Bring peace to his house;
Fill it with faith and prayer,
With praise and thanksgiving.

Let him see Your hand moving through this crisis,
Beyond their best developed strategies,
And may he one day testify of Your goodness
For the whole world to see Your Reign.

In Christ’s name,
Amen.
