I pray today for our political leaders. Our country is a political battlefield right now, but it doesn’t need to be. I pray that you guide the minds and hearts of our leaders so that they may know of Your will for them. Help them to make decisions that will help our nation find peace rather than more anger.
They have a heavy burden as representatives of many people and many differing opinions, but I pray that they may carry out their duty responsibly and with the best interests of their constituents at heart. Give them the courage to stand up to lobbyists who only seek a profit. Help them to follow Your will Lord, and not that of their political affiliation. Let them know that You are always with them even when they are struggling to help this nation.
