Praying for Our Leaders
By Victoria Osteen - Feb 21, 2011

Today in America, we celebrate President's Day. It's a day to honor the Office of the President and remember all the great leaders of our nation throughout history.

Scripture tells us in Romans 13 that government and authority are established by God, and we should honor those who are in authority over us. As believers, we need to remember to pray for our leaders and rulers in our land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land" (NLT).

Today and every day, let's remember to pray for our leaders. As we do, God promises to hear us and restore our land. Join us today and make this the prayer of your heart:

Father in heaven, today we come to You on behalf of our leaders and those who are in authority over us. We pray first that they would know You, honor You and seek Your ways. We pray that they would have wisdom and discernment to make good decisions. We pray for safety over them and their families and for peace in their hearts and minds. Thank You, Father, for hearing our prayers and healing our land in Jesus' Name. Amen!
