World Leaders: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - December 29

Today we focus on prayers for world leaders. We'll be skipping ahead to page 976 in Operation World; appendices 4-9 also hold helpful information if you wish to review them for future reference, but today let's focus on page 976.

As we pray for these world leaders, you may wish to pray specifically. A couple of websites can assist with that information:

My prayer for today: Lord, Your Word tells us to pray for leaders and those in authority. We know that no power exists except that which You allow; we also know they are held accountable for their actions and judged when they do not act righteously. We pray for You to raise up good and just leaders to accomplish Your purposes on earth. We pray for unfit rulers to repent and change, or be removed. We lift up those facing major crises to have the courage to make right decisions and take decisive action without compromising righteousness. We pray for those who are already giving just and godly leadership to have great wisdom and guidance, not giving way to pressure by those who have their own interests or seek to compromise scripture. We pray for You to raise up Christians to promote justice, righteousness, honest government, and wise rule. We pray Christians in each country will become part of the solution, not putting their faith in the political process but not ignoring it either. Use the governments of the world for Your kingdom purposes, in Jesus' name, amen.
