Prayer for community leaders

Father, I’m praying for (name them) and other government and community leaders throughout our towns, cities, states, and nation… Save those who are not yet Your own. Give those in authority wisdom in every decision, and help them to think clearly. Grant them discernment and common sense so they’ll be strong and effective leaders. (Titus 3:5; James 1:5; Proverbs 3:21)

Help them to lead and govern with integrity, and may their integrity guide them and keep them on track. (1 Kings 9:4; Proverbs 11:3a; Psalm 78:72; 1 Timothy 2:1–4)

Be merciful to give us leaders who are Spirit-filled and follow Your principles. Direct their steps according to Your Word— for their decisions have a great impact on our lives! (Ephesians 5:18b; Psalm 119:105, 133a)

Be their defender and protector, and keep them always on guard. Help those who are Christians to be strong and courageous, standing firm in their faith and influencing others for Your kingdom. Encourage and strengthen them, giving them the wisdom they need. Help them to have courage and faith in You, no matter what they’re facing day-to-day. (Proverbs 23:11; Psalm 41:2a; 1 Corinthians 16:13; Deuteronomy 1:38; 3:28; 2 Chronicles 1:10a; Acts 27:22, 25)

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

“I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all men: for kings and all who are in high places.” (1 Timothy 2:1-2)


“(Pray) on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in opening my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Good News, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” (Ephesians 6:19-20) “Brothers, pray for us.”


“If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Prayer for the leaders is all about being used of God to see things happen in our world. Our goal is to work with the Holy Spirit to pray while also encouraging people to see how powerful and awesome God is. There is only One who can actually open our eyes to make it all happen, and his name is Yahweh (as revealed in the Old Testament) and Jesus Christ of Nazareth (as revealed in the New Testament). He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We appeal to him, and him alone, to aid, restore vision and clarity of focus to, leaders around the world, both in the secular arena and in the church.

If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Prayer is beyond any question the highest activity of the human soul. Man is at his greatest and highest when upon his knees he comes face to face with God.

He also spoke a parable to them that they must always pray, and not give up.

I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all men: for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet 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 come to full knowledge of the truth.

No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.

But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.

Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to Yahweh for it; for in its peace you shall have peace.

He who kneels the most, stands the best.

with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints

Oh, will you pray? Stop now and pray, lest desire turn to feeling and feeling evaporate.

In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men — men of prayer.

This is the boldness which we have toward him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he listens to us. 15 And if we know that he listens to us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions which we have asked of him.

“We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.”

Father I ask that you reveal how best to pray for and to extend your love to our community. I ask Father that your Holy Spirit would draw their hearts and minds to you. That we would have deep fellowship with our Creator. That the love of the Lord Jesus would be shed abroad in our hearts. That we would have love, mercy and compassion for each other. Jesus said that the whole of the law rest on Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul and to love each other. I pray that our community would know and receive salvation and eternal life through Jesus the Christ. I pray for your provision, protection, guidance and direction for our community. I pray that you would raise up leaders for our community who love you and your word. I ask for all this in Jesus mighty name.
