John Jay, America’s first U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice, “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers. It’s the duty as well as the privilege of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” It is imperative that we have God-fearing leadership in office from the local to the federal level. We need godly city council members, school board members, county commissioners, and judges. We need Christians in our state houses and senates. We, of course, need Christian Governors, Lieutenant Governors, and Attorneys General. We need those filling these positions to be men and women of prayer and character.

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32 NKJV)

Pray with me:

Father, we thank You for noble and honorable leaders like Senator Rapert and Representative Bentley. We know there are many like them across our nation and we are grateful. We stand with and support them in prayer. We ask You to give them great wisdom and understanding. We ask You to protect them from the onslaught of threats, lawsuits and other types of attacks. Be a shield around them spiritually, physically, and emotionally.

We continue to pray for the right strategies and plans to end abortion in America. We ask for the eyes of people to be opened to truth and for deception to be broken off of them. We pray for the brainwashing that has occurred over time to somehow be changed. Let the horrific nature of the sin of abortion be revealed to America. We ask You to help us reverse every law that has been written in favor of killing babies.

And we ask You for forgiveness and healing. Forgive us as a nation for this sin, and please forgive and heal those who have been part of it. We especially pray for those who have been emotionally wounded by abortion and ask for Your healing to come to them through Your grace and forgiveness. May they find peace and freedom from the condemnation and guilt. 

Finally, we ask You to come to this nation with a great and sweeping revival that delivers us from evil and saves millions. Cleanse us from sin and corruption, and bring us into Your abundant life and blessing. We ask all of this in the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that righteous leaders are being raised up in our nation who will honor God and His ways.
