“Dear Father, in Jesus’ name I lift up the President to You, I know that our leader’s heart is in Your hands, so I ask that you guide the head of our nation to the way You would have him go. Father, I pray that You would surround our President with wise counsel – men and women of integrity who place Your agenda and the good of this nation above their own and whose motives are for that which is right. I pray that You would give our leader discernment, understanding and knowledge so that our nation may know stability internally and abroad. I give thanks for our President according to Your Word and thank You for working in and through his leadership so that we might lead peaceable lives in godliness and honesty.”
