When the Lord asked King Solomon what he desired, he asked for wisdom. He could have asked for anything-riches, power, etc. He asked for wisdom. His request pleased God. God blessed him with wisdom but still blessed him with riches and fame. I ask the Lord on your behalf, that as a leader within the great state of Louisiana, that you too would desire God’s wisdom. I pray that your heart be not divided, but belong fully to the Lord. Neither man nor woman can recommend decisions/legislation that are facing our state unless the Lord leads them. I pray that you will be bold in your speech for righteousness to rule in Louisiana. We know that the word says, “Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach.” I pray that you will put the needs of the state before any personal ambitions you may have. May you submit yourself to God for Him to lead, guide, and direct your steps as individuals and as elected leaders. May God go before you and assign a rear guard to protect you in all your ways. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Indeed, for such a time as this, Lord Jesus, I ask Your divine wisdom and guidance to cover as we navigate areas that can no longer be trusted to offer foundational principles of truth and justice according to Biblical standards. School systems, work places and legislative offices are making decisions that are vitally important. May minds be alert and ears open to hear and act on the voice of God and not the voice of liberal agendas that seek to change the very foundations inherent to our country. May I as a resident and each in this state find a growing hunger arising in our bones that would draw our attentions and efforts toward standing for GODLY. May Louisiana become a mighty force for honor, truth and courage as we care for our homes, churches, schools, state, and country. May we stand for Christ and Biblical principles and stand dogmatically with Israel. May any opposing political view and action be blocked as enemy agendas are exposed. Bring EXPOSURE, Lord Jesus, that we may align our decisions and resultant actions with Your Truth in Jesus Name

Father, I lift up the state of Louisiana & it’s leaders. I pray for our Governor, state, federal & local legislators , that they would uphold your Word above any other Word. I pray that they will govern this state righteously & seek you first before making any decisions that would bring judgment upon our state. I pray that the eyes of their understanding would be enlightened, that they may know what is the hope of their calling in Christ Jesus. I pray for the people of the state of Louisiana, that we would have a love & respect for you that surpasses the traditions of man. I pray that we will love what you love & hate what you hate. I pray that we’re not drawn away by every wind of doctrine but that we would seek first your kingdom & your righteousness. I pray that we would hear your voice & shut out all other voices that work against your will. Remove blinders from our eyes & plugs from our ears so that we may see & hear clearly. Remind us to keep our state & federal government officials lifted in prayer so that we may be in peace. Let your favor rest upon us as we move in your will. Unite local churches within our state that we may become one resounding voice lifting up the name of Jesus & standing for all that is right & true according to your Word. Father let your kingdom come, let your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven in Jesus Name Amen & Amen.

Lord, I pray for the state of Louisiana. I pray for all the elected people from the top leaders, the legislature, every Parrish leader, including the school board. May they all follow Godly Biblical principles in making decisions. I lift up each person to understand the power of salvation in their lives. May they realize that God placed them in that position and they have a moral responsibility to God and the people they represent. I pray that they are convicted in they heart to do what is Biblically correct. Thank you Lord for these leaders and how you will work in their decisions.

Father, We know our help comes from you. Psalm 121:2 NIVUK My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. I pray that you would go after the corrupt politicians who don’t truly serve the public. Please remove them and raise up Godly men and women who are willing to put You first and America first and honor our Biblical heritage and godly principles. Please protect Senator John Kennedy, Steve Scalia, and A any other representative who serves with integrity and righteousness. Give us pro life senators, representatives at the state, local, and federal level who don’t compromise or bow down to pressure or bribes and are true warriors willing to fight for Louisiana and for what’s right for America. Remove the Rhinos who are only there to “do business as usual” and serve themselves at the expense of Louisiana taxpayers and Constituents. Give us godly people in state government who don’t cave to common core or critical race theory or the 1619 project. Please send some people who truly love our nations’ biblical foundations and heritage- who don’t speak evil of the early colonists before the American Revolution and who honor explorers like Columbus who were human and made mistakes but wanted to spread the Gospel. Give us educators who love America and honor our founding fathers. In Jesus’s name.

Heavenly Father I declare that from this day forth our political leaders would yearn for a revival, that their hearts would be for the people. Bring revival to our great state of LA. In Jesus’s Holy Name.

Father, I thank you for the pro life movement here in Louisiana. I pray that Planned Parenthood would be completely defunded and that abortion doctors’-eyes would be opened to see the evil of their actions. Convict Bill Cassidy of his recent action in aiding with Democrats against President Trump. Please also cause a godly conservative man or woman who sticks to his/her principles to rise up and defeat governor Edwards soon. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
