Prayer For America – Part 2

Prayer For Safe, Efficient, Peaceful, Fair And Just November Elections

Glorious Jehovah Shalom,   Thank You for the precious gift of life. You so carefully created each soul fearfully and wonderfully from within the womb. Even our thoughts are valuable to You and You are mindful of them (Psalm 8:4) Each and every life matters to You. You never made any mistakes when You made Your children, male and female and You brought the two together in marriage and in union with You for the purpose of raising, protecting and nurturing children to glorify, serve and honor You. (Genesis 2:22-24, Psalm 66:9, Psalm 139)

Your beauty is upon us and You have compassion on Your servants to number our days, teach us wisdom, and establish the works of our hands. (Psalm 90:12-17) Help us to love You with all of our heart, mind and strength so that we can in turn love our neighbor as ourselves. (Matthew 22:37-39)

Yeshua, we sing to You, "Worthy are You to take the scroll and open it's seals, for You were slain, and by Your blood You ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation (and color), and You have made them a kingdom of priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth." ~Revelation 5:9-10

We know that it is not Your will, Abba, that we live such that every person merely does what is right in their own eyes (Deuteronomy 12:8) and that because of transgression (and corruption) of a land, many are its tyrannical rulers; But by a man of understanding and knowledge Right will be prolonged. ~Proverbs 28:2  Those who forsake law and order praise the wicked, but such as keep the law contend with them. Evil men do not understand justice, But those who seek Your face, Adonai, understand all. ~Proverbs 28:4-5  One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer is an abomination. Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way, he himself will fall into his own pit; But the blameless will inherit good. ~Proverbs 28:9-10

We know that you, Yahweh, created law and order and without Your guidance, that order will disappear and turn into chaos. You bless everyone who obeys Your Law and when law is perverted against You, we must choose to obey You rather than human authority and that we are to stand up against those who practice iniquity. (Acts 5:29, Romans 13:1-2, Psalm 94:16)  We know that you test us with trials and You hate those who love and approve of violence. (Psalm 11:5)  

Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words, for I see violence and strife in the city. Day and night they prowl about on its walls; malice and abuse are within it. Destructive forces are at work in the city; threats and lies never leave its streets. ~Psalm 55:9-11  Humble those who have no fear of You (Psalm 55:19) Expose their deeds and bring them under peaceful law and order.

For we, as believers in Yeshua, were called to freedom, brothers and sisters. Only we must not use our freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. ~Galatians 5:13  Our hope is to preserve the environment of freedom where the Great Commission of the Gospel would flourish so we can passionately continue to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything You have commanded us, And surely You Are with us always, to the very end of the age." ~Matthew 28:19-20  

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all people, for kings (presidents) and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. ~2 Timothy 2:1-4

So in obedience to You, El Shaddai, as we go to the polls this November, help us to keep Your good and perfect will in mind as we choose and establish leaders, president, judges and officers in all positions of authority, which the Lord our God gives us, according to our nation and communities and they will judge the people with just judgement who will not pervert justice; who will not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous. We will follow what is altogether just, that we may live and inherit the land which the Lord our God has given us. ~Deuteronomy 16:18-20

In Yeshua's Mighty Name We Pray, Amen
