PRAYING FOR THE PRESIDENT
BY FREDI TRAMMELL
In Psalm 101, David expresses his desire to please God as the king of Israel. He also declares his accountability to God as the ruler. David longed to be a godly ruler who pleased God and governed the people wisely and efficiently.
In this psalm, he lists his goals for leadership. These goals provide you with a prayer guide that you can pray for the President, George W. Bush. This prayer guide can be used for a variety of leaders. Yet, I
would encourage you to pray this psalm for the President. Mr. Bush needs and deserves our prayers. It is our responsibility before God to do so (I Timothy 2:1-2).
Read this psalm and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in your praying for the President. The following are some requests that you can make of God for him:
That he will love and practice mercy and justice; That he will praise and adore God
That he will act wisely; That he will live a life of integrity both in public and in private; That he will sense and know the presence of God in his life
That he will hate what is evil; That he will not tolerate compromise in his life or in those who surround him;
That he will keep his heart right with God and man; That he would repent of sin and fight against it
That he will hate and avoid pride, evil talk, and slander
That he will appoint blameless and efficient men and women to positions of authority
That he will maintain blameless and godly standards; That lies and deceit would be unacceptable to him
That he would labor with all his strength to eradicate ungodly, immoral laws; That he would labor with all his strength to build a righteous foundation for the nation
