Praying for Leaders
Updated: Apr 8
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)
Praying for kings and all those in authority results in peace, Godliness, holiness, salvation and a knowledge of the truth being released over my region!
When considering 'Kings AND all those in authority' be aware this includes: government, police, courts and judges, educators, business leaders, medical professionals, media, policy makers, town planners etc.
Decree, proclaim, pray, and declare into the atmosphere over your region and over your local, state, and federal government:
An awareness of, and desire, for the blessings and goodness of godly government and rule.
Repent of rebellion and rejection of Christ and His kingdom's rule and reign.
Repent of 'self'-government and empire building, and our love of Saul-like Commanders, and cry out for the king David's - those anointed by God, not man.
That evil is removed from the presence of your leaders - including worldy or wicked counsel.
For the government upon the shoulder of Jesus Christ to rest upon those of your shoulder like a mantle from above.
Humility and wisdom.
Your leaders would seek God, and abide in Him.
The Lord would establish His council/counsel
Decree a desire for the blessings of kingdom government:
Peace, Blessing, Health, and, Wholeness
Creativity, Innovation, Divine solutions to problems
Victory when attacked
Freedom and deliverance
Biblical work ethic
Godly justice system
Wealth of the nations laid at our feet
Violence free zone
Righteousness and justice
Some scriptural decrees for governmental shift:
Daniel 4:17 Amp.
….So that the living may know without any doubt that the most High God rules over the kingdoms of mankind. He bestows it on whomever He desires and sets over it the humblest and lowliest of men.
After removing Saul, He made David their King. He testified concerning him: I have found David, son of Jesse, a man after my own heart, He will do everything I want him to do.
2 Samuel 5:12
David knew that the Lord established Him as King and had exalted his kingdom, for the sake of his people Israel.
He changes times and seasons. He sets up kings and deposes them.
Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God, consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgement on themselves…..rulers….are God’s servants to do us good!
The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous……..
Seek the Peace – shalom: safety, wellness, happy, friendly, welfare, health, prosperity, peace, favour, good health, rest, wholeness – of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever.The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
