  1. Honestly, I have been more burdened to pray for my country….Nigeria. I am hoping that things change for the better and the growing pains of the people be relieved.

    Thank you for this important call to engage in intentional prayers for the leaders

    God bless Rachel

      I can understand how you feel, Ifeoma. I’m in my home country at the moment – Britain – and I feel burdened to pray for the people and those who are in government.

  2. There has never been a more important time for us to pray for our leaders in the US. Thanks for the reminder that politics doesn’t matter when we’ve been called to pray for all of our leaders. Great post, Rachel!

  3. A most important post to read at this time in our country. Grateful to be reminded to pray for our future leaders for our God already knows just who they are. Glad to have stopped here this morning!

  4. I tell people this, but usually they are just disagreeing with something. The Bible does say to pray for them. I saw David Cameron’s speech say England was a Christian nation, it didn’t appear that he offended anyone, I would love to have the President declare that over America.

  5. Well stated Rachel! I have been convicted to pray for our leaders on every level: National, state, and citywide. Especially with this being an election year in the U.S. There are so many concerns and my heart hurts for my country as our religious liberties are becoming at risk, the definition of marriage is quickly being destroyed, and so much more. As Christians, God has allowed us to continue here on earth to be a witness to the unbelievers and encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank you for sharing these prayers too so that we can send specific requests to God! Have a wonderful week and blessings to you and yours!

  6. Thanks Rachel for the great reminder to pray and think of those who can impact our world in a big way. Our small prayers go through a big God, something we should never forget. I pray for my country but you reminded me it’s not just this country we should be praying for, but all those leaders who can make a difference. Thanks!

      It’s great that you pray for your country, Jill. And leaders have a global impact. Just as our leaders influences other countries, so other leaders effect where we live, too.
