6: Favor


 

PETITION 6: FAVOR

Lord of lords and King of kings, we bow before you and acknowledge your greatness and power. We thank you that there is no ruler like you, our God. We give you praise for all that you are and all that you have done. For you alone are good, just and immutable. We acknowledge that in you alone we place our faith.

Today we ask that you would preserve and protect the president of the United States of America, Donald Trump. Thank you for his life, commitment and service to our nation. It is our desire that he govern at all times and in every way as one who is working in the best interest of our country and as one who is dependent upon you, O Lord. We know that those who lead this nation face enormous challenges. It is not a simple matter for him to oversee his administration, so we ask that he would oversee and manage all those under his charge with wisdom and grace. We pray that those in the administration would work with integrity and justice. It is our prayer that those who work with President Trump in Congress would be encouraged to work well with him. When differences or opposition arise, we ask that our president would be wise, diplomatic and gracious with his words and actions. We pray that you would keep him from anger and bitterness. May he think and administer his office with a world and life view that reflects your truth. Protect us as a nation. May your will be done.

May your gospel continually be present within his life and work. All this we ask in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
