Patriots' Prayers (Inauguration Edition)

Scripture commands us to pray for our government officials and others in positions of authority. We should also pray that God's Will be done in all things. With the Inauguration that just occurred in the US, I think it is a perfect time for us to pray for our new government officials- that they might do God's Will in all things.
Prayer For Our New Government Officials

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon all leaders, politicians, and civil authorities of these United States of America. We especially hold up to you President Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence. Watch over them, keep them safe, grant them wisdom in their duties, and have them serve Your Will in all things. 

We also pray for Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, and National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Guide and direct them in their duties.

We ask, O Lord, that the Senate quickly vote on the many other appointments of President Trump, so that vacant Cabinet and other high-level positions can be filled in a timely fashion. May all Senate votes go according to Your Will. 

In Jesus' Name we pray, Amen. 

Supporting Verse: "First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." - 1 Timothy 2: 1-4 (ESV)

Prayer for America (short version)

God, we have sinned and deserve the just punishment for our sins as a nation who has rejected you in every possible way. And yet, Lord, I cry out for mercy for myself, my family, and this nation. In the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.

Supporting Verse: "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." --2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
