Friday – Book Mark

(Continued from Thursday)

The Friday section of My TEA CUPP Prayers book mark is in the center of the back side, when the book mark is folded.  Here I list all the people in our nation and world who I want to bring to the Lord.  The people of Haiti have been in my prayers this year, as they had the terrible earthquake there.  I list our president, governor, senators, and elected leaders.  I list our armed services and people I know who are serving in the military.  I pray for their wisdom and safety.

God’s Word calls us to pray for our government leaders…

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior. 1 Timothy 2:1-3 (NIV)

A few verses that help me petition God for our country and leaders include…

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
the people He chose for His inheritance.
Psalm 33:12 (NIV)

May the LORD our God be with us as He was with our fathers; may He never leave us nor forsake us. 1 Kings 8:57 (NIV)

“Save us, O God our Savior;
gather us and deliver us from the nations,
that we may give thanks to Your holy Name,
that we may glory in Your praise.”
1 Chronicles 16:35 (NIV) & Psalm 106:47 (NIV)
