A friend of my sons named Terry Mercer wrote this prayer and my son asked if I would post it for him. They are incarcerated in the Missouri State Prison in Jefferson City Missouri and have no access to computers.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for our country, our Constitution, and our leaders. I pray for our President and for every elected and appointed official who serves with him.
I pray that You will build a spiritual wall of protection around the marriage and family of every national, state and local official.
I pray the You will rebuke Satan for the deception of his lie that we can be “as gods” in deciding for ourselves what is right or wrong.
O Lord, may our leaders cast down every law, policy and personal example which weakens marriages, families, or Your moral standards.
O Lord, I pray that You would protect and guide the men and women of the armed forces that are fighting in foreign lands to uphold the sanctity of the founding of this country.
I pray that our leaders will understand and follow the principle of Your Word. May they realize that all authority comes from You, not the voters, and that one day they will stand before You to give an account of the power You gave them.
I base this prayer on the promise of Your Word, that if I will humble myself, pray, seek Your face, and turn from my wicked ways, then You will hear from heaven, forgive my sin and heal my land.
In the name and through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen

|This prayer for our leaders was copyrighted in 1979. I just read this same prayer in this book that I am reading "THE REBIRTH OF AMERICA". Very good book.|

|Prayers to the Almighty to reduce the influence of Satan in world affairs are greatly needed. Satan's minions in Washington, District of Criminals, are trashing life and liberty in the name of God. The anti-Christ will be mistaken for Christ just as the anti-president is mistaken for a president. We are all praying for the return of Christ to sort out this mess. Amen.

|Sue, I would be happy to post this prayer through Lighthouse of Prayer, which is global, if you would like. It should be prayed by a mighty shout and roar! ~~Bonnie Q, lighthouseofprayer.earthlink.net|
