September 6 Petition Mission

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Ps 33:12).

Dr. Charles Stanley suggests ten ways to pray for government leaders. Pray: 1. that they would trust the Lord and then realize their daily need for cleansing from sin; 2. that they recognize their inadequacy, depending on God for wisdom and courage to do what’s right; 3. that they would reject all counsel that violates spiritual principles; 4. that they would resist pressure to violate their conscience; 5. that they would reverse the trends of secularism and humanism; 6. that they would be ready to sacrifice personal ambition and political careers for the sake of the nation; 7. that they would rely on prayer and God’s Word as the source of their daily strength; 8. that they would restore dignity, honor, and trust to their office; 9. that they would remember to be good examples in their conduct to the families of the nation; 10. that they would be reminded daily that they are accountable to God for the decisions they make.
