Daily Prayer: Year 2, Day 316

From Handbook to Prayer


Lord, I now prepare my heart for intercessory prayer for government.

We should offer petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings on behalf of all men, for kings and all those who are in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and reverence. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1–4)

In the spirit of this passage, I pray for:

  • Spiritual revival
  • Local government
  • State government
  • National government
  • Current events and concerns
