Pray With Us: Submit to Authority
Dear God, my ultimate authority,
Forgive me Father for resisting authority. I have done it throughout my entire life and want to submit to You and Your ways. Teach me, Lord, the most mysterious way—the way of a woman led into prayer—so I may lead a life that is honoring to You. You are my King and I trust in Your Word. My tongue can only get me into trouble, and it often only leads to worry and doubt. You have given me the ability to place all my fears into Your gracious hands and ask You to move in hearts.
Today, God I want to pray for those who are leading our nation. Tenderly lead them in the way everlasting.
God, I pray for those leading in my workplace. Through Your common grace, allow them to walk in a way that is pleasing to You.
And finally Lord, I pray for those leading in my city. The teachers, the city council members, the police, the judges, and all others in authority. May they see You and Your love today through the kindness of believers.
Lord, we release these to You, and we trust You with our leaders.
