Our Founding Fathers established a nearly foolproof system of government; its checks and balances are among the most noteworthy aspects of our republic. Our executive, legislative, and judicial branches, ­ when functioning as they were designed, ­ champion our liberties and prevent our government from becoming tyrannical and oppressive. By and large, however, the American people are sadly uninformed about democratic principles and their role in safeguarding our freedoms. What’s more, the clearly defined lines between the three branches of government are becoming blurred and United States citizens are paying the price.We must continue to pray that God protects our way of life, asking that He would embed men and women in office who are committed to serving their constituents with integrity. We must remain in prayer for our elections, beseeching God to prompt our fellow citizens to become involved in this process. Voting is both a duty and a privilege, and the outcomes of our political races are critical in determining the future course of our nation.

May God’s hand of wisdom and guidance remain upon each segment of our society, and through His Spirit, may believers be inspired to “pray continually” (I Thessalonians 5:17). We are assured that the Almighty hears our petitions. As people from coast to coast lift their voices in prayer, repentance and humility, we simply cannot underestimate how the Lord will respond. Let us together come before His throne with these words on our lips and in our hearts, “God bless America!”

Scripture

Here are scriptures to use to pray for our leaders, as well as the judges in our courts. Ask God to grant them wisdom to act with integrity.
