PETITION 1: PRAYER
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. We pray today that your will be done on this earth as it is in heaven. We need your help to pray for President Trump. You have given us a practical and accessible gift that is so often neglected. Thank you for the gift of prayer. Forgive us our sins of neglect and lack of appreciation for all that you have done for your church.
In your Word you remind us about the importance of prayer. “The LORD detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him”(Proverbs 15:8). May our hearts be right before you. In this we need the help of our Redeemer, Christ. We pray that you would increase our desire to pray for President Trump. Help us to be gracious, persistent and specific in our prayers. Help us to take before your throne of grace his family, his wife Melania and his children, Donald, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, Barron and his grandchildren. Help us to pray for his administration. May we be faithful in this calling that you have placed upon our lives. The peace, prosperity and integrity of our nation depend upon your goodness. We ask now for your help in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus. Amen.
