A Prayer for the New President of the United States of America


We come to You with humble hearts, bowing ourselves low before You and we thank You that You are the Sovereign God of the Universe. We thank You that You are in control of all things. We rest all of our hope and confidence in You.

Today, we want to ask that You would forgive us our sins and cleanse our nation of all unrighteousness. That You would have mercy on our land and that You would bless Barack Obama our new President. Please draw him to Your Son and save him and his family through repentance and faith in Christ. Make Yourself known to him and cause him to cling to Jesus Christ, the only One who is able to forgive him of his sins.

Father, thank you for the opportunity to proclaim the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ so freely here in America. We never want to take this for granted. Help us, as your children, to preach the gospel while there is time...forgive us for assuming that we will have tomorrow to do this.

Father, we pray that if there is anyone reading this who has not turned from their sins and placed their trust in the risen Savior Jesus Christ...that they would do so today. We want to humbly thank You for giving us breath to pray this prayer. We love You with all our being and place all of our hope only in You.

In Jesus name, Amen!

Heavenly Father, please bless President Obama with the wisdom to know and accept Your Son as his Savior. Give him discerment and knowledge to handle the monumental task he has been given. It is You, and You alone who have chosen him to lead our great nation. Protect him and his family from those would do him harm. Let his administration be a positive and effective change for this nation. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Lord Jesus, glorify Your name. I pray for Your quick return to take us as believers to be with You. I plead for Your mercy upon this nation, Lord. Please have mercy on us. I pray that You lead and guide president Obama. Please bring people across his path and into his life that would be of influence in Your ways. Thank you, Lord, for the abundance of provision that You have poured out over my life. I don't deserve it, but You are good. Thank You Lord. In Jesus name. Amen
