Song: The Best Is Yet To Come/ Mack Brock, Pat Barrett
Scripture: 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NIV)
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
Prayer: Lord Jesus, the government, is upon your shoulders, and yet, we are commanded to pray regularly for our leaders. Father God, we pray for leaders to follow you and make Godly decisions. We pray our leaders and people will repent when they do not follow you but choose financial gain over the people’s best interests. Jesus, we pray for our leaders to reign in righteousness. (Isaiah 32:1) God, we pray for upcoming elections to be fair with righteous outcomes, all to your glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Decree out loud: I decree more and more Godly people are getting involved in our elections at the local and state levels. I declare we, as a country, will obey the Lord, our God, and will carefully follow all His commands. (Deut. 28:1) I declare as a county, we will maintain justice and do what is right. (Isaiah 56:1)
Prophetic encouragement: God is in control! We can rest upon Him and His sovereignty! Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom! I see freedom and shouts of joy breaking out!
