PRAYER FOR OUR LEADERS

1 Chronicles 21:1 says, “And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.” David was a God-fearing king, a man after God’s own heart, yet there was a time in his reign that he succumbed to the principalities and the powers of darkness in heavenly places. Because of David’s action judgment fell on the people of Israel and 70,000 men died. One wrong decision from one man brought great suffering to the people under him.
 
It is vital that we pray for both our political and spiritual leaders because the decisions they make affect us for good or for bad.
 
Today America is a divided nation because of past decisions that have been made by our leaders, both politically and spiritually. When spiritual leaders fail, the church suffers; and when the church suffers, our nation suffers.
 
In 2 Chronicles 6 we find Solomon's prayer as he is before the Lord and before the people.

Here are a few portions of his prayer:

      • v 24 — If thy people Israel be put to the worse before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee
      • v 26 — When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee
      • v 28 — If there be dearth in the land, if there be pestilence, if there be blasting, or mildew, locusts, or caterpillers; if their enemies besiege them in the cities of their land; whatsoever sore or whatsoever sickness there be...
      • v 36 — If they sin against thee, (for there is no man which sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them over before their enemies, and they carry them away captives unto a land far off or near...
      • v 38-39 — …If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul…Then hear from heaven their prayer and supplications and maintain their cause and forgive your people who have sinned against you.  
Solomon knew the human nature. He knew that the time would come when there would be failures and sin that would bring God’s judgment on their land. He knew leaders would make mistakes that would cause God’s people to sin and come under judgement, yet he also understood God’s amazing grace and mercy towards those who turn to Him in prayer and repentance! In his prayer he gives the answer when a nation is under the judgment of God.
Today we find ourselves, both in the Church and in our nation suffering the consequences of failures and sin, both past and present, but there is HOPE! As God’s people and as Americans we must repent before the Lord for our personal sins as well as our national sins, and we must pray for our spiritual and political leaders with a greater fervor than ever before! 
There are those within the administration who are attempting to undermine this President. Witches across America have been called to cast a spell on President Trump and on those under him! Our spiritual leaders are also being targeted by the powers of darkness. If they can be destroyed God’s people will be greatly affected. Prayer can make a difference! The battle is real against our political and spiritual leaders, but prayer is the answer.
Our leaders urgently need our prayers! Pray that they would have encounters with God in such powerful ways that their lives are transformed and their hearts are set on fire for the Lord. This will have a huge impact on the churches and the nation. Pray that wisdom is imparted to them as they make decisions, and that the Lord would shield them from every spiritual attack coming from the powers of darkness. 
We need a spiritual awakening — a revival that turns our nation back to righteousness. Oh Lord, may it start with our leaders!
