Almighty God, You are the Just Judge and the Righteous Lawgiver. We pray now, for our Legislative Branch of Government – The United States Congress. We intercede for the 435 members of the House of Representatives and the 100 Senators who together enact legislation and declare war. Give wisdom and divinely inspired judgment to each of them, so they may represent us properly, legislate effectively, and govern with all humility. May they be ethical and fair in all their dealings, live in awe and reverence of God, and enact legislation that honors God and ensures the continuance of our great nation.
Father, we ask that You direct the decisions made by these leaders and that present leaders who are men and women of discernment, understanding, and knowledge will remain in office. We praise You, Father, that we shall see Congress walking in the ways of piety and virtue, revering Your name. We declare that those who err in spirit will come to understanding, and those who murmur discontentedly will accept instruction in the way, Jesus, to Your will and carry out Your purposes in their lives and our nation.
Jesus, let Your law be written on our hearts. Impress them on our children. Let us talk about them when we sit at home and when we walk along the road, when we lie down and when we get up. Give us representatives and senators who love the Lord our God, walk in obedience to Him, and keep His commands, decrees and laws. Then, let us live and increase, and be blessed in our land.
