Prayers for our President

Titus 3: But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.

On January 20, 2017 the 45th president of the United States was inaugurated. Donald J. Trump became the leader of this great nation where we are blessed to live. This change in leadership made many people proud to be an American, but on the flip side made many people angry and lash out in their speech and actions. Instead of spending our efforts in foolish controversies, let us come together in respect and prayer for our new president. The prayer below is one shared by a godly may I respect, Pastor Roger Dykstra.

“My Lord. My God. My King. My Savior. My All. I pray for President Donald J. Trump. I pray that you lead his leadership, that you guide his decision-making, that you shape his character, his words, and his actions. In every single way in which his desires and actions are of you, I pray that you bless him. In every single way in which his desires and actions are contrary to yours, I pray that you reform him. In every single way in which he would make America great with greatness as defined by you, I pray that you embolden him. In every single way in which he would make America something less than great according to your desires, I pray that you hinder him. I pray that same prayer, O Lord, for all of our elected leaders. And I pray that same prayer, O Lord, for myself, and for your church. Amen.”

How will you pray for our new president and country as we move forward through this transition?
