God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of truth, it pleases you when we make petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving for all people—for kings and all those in authority.

1 Timothy 2:1–4

Thursday, 17 October 2019

God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, give to each of your children spiritual wisdom and insight so that we might grow in our knowledge of you and your ways.

Ephesians 1:15-23

Thursday, 10 October 2019

Being a political leader, or a leader of any description, can be tough, with the stresses and strains of trying to do right by people amid public scrutiny undoubtedly hammering their minds.

Our Father in heaven tells us what to think about in order to help ourselves remain in perfect peace: “...whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just…”

Let us pray today that He continues to extend His grace to our political leaders, piercing through their thoughts with His own so that they, too, can enjoy His peace and make decisions according to His will.

So, we come to you boldly, with confidence and great expectation, and give thanks for and pray for our Christian leaders, government ministers and decision-makers within organisations.
