Prayer, Plain and Simple

Psalm 72 outlines a beautiful prayer for a political leader. We have been praying through this Psalm for the past few days with President Barak Obama in mind.

Our Father, we lift up our President to you…

  • May he have a long and healthy life. (vs. 15)
  • May people pray for him. (vs. 15)
  • May we use our words to bless him through each day. (vs. 15)
  • May the crops of our land be abundant. (vs. 16)
  • May all fruit trees in our land flourish. (vs. 16)
  • May every individual under his leadership thrive. (vs. 16)
  • May all the nations of the world benefit from his leadership. (vs. 17)

We ask these things in the Name of Jesus, Amen
