Lord, we come to You today lifting those in leadership at every level in our country. These times test their measure of wisdom to degrees they never expected.
They are literally making life and death decisions.
And there’s a way that seems right to people that, in the end, leads to death. And with people dying from COVID19, we are well beyond leaning on the wisdom of people.
Be unto our leadership wisdom, Lord.
We take You at your word that their hearts are in your hand and You turn them whatever way You will. So, Lord, turn their hearts and those advising them toward your wisdom.
We pray our leadership humbles themselves, laying aside the wisdom of this world—becoming a fool, even in their own eyes, that they may become truly wise.
Lord, we ask You to open their deaf ears. Help them hear from You and listen to others.
Give them servant hearts prioritizing the good of the people—the people who entrusted them with great responsibility.
And Lord, create a spirit of unity amongst ALL government officials.
You command a blessing when we dwell together in unity. So, we put aside all murmuring and divisive talk.
Lord, we need You to bless us and rid our land of this scourge.
To You belongs all honor and glory. It’s in your name, Jesus, we pray. Amen!
Inspired by 1 Corinthians 3:18-19

The Vine Life is living by faith in a healthy community. “Healthy” is the tricky part because what you believe either breaks or builds you and your relationships. Connect with us for resources that move you from bitter to better.
