Prayer, Plain and Simple


A Prayer for Obama. Day Three.

posted by Mark and Jill

The past few posts have outlined the prayer objectives found in Psalm 72 to raise up a praying army for our political leaders. We encourage you to read the whole Psalm; we have listed some prayer points from the chapter written by Solomon.

Lord, hear our prayer for President Barak Obama…

  • That He would rescue the poor and listen to their cries. (vs. 12)
  • That the poor would have a voice in his administration. (vs. 12)
  • When no one else is available to defend the poor, the he would step forward and be their voice. (vs 12)
  • That he would be truly empathic and sympathetic to the weak and needy. (vs. 13)
  • That his compassion would move him to action on their behalf. (vs. 13)
  • May he value and improve of the lives of the oppressed and abused in society so that they can live well. (vs. 14)

Amen

My Unruly, Devastating Tongue. I Repent.
If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. James 1:26 We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot choose
