Father, we don’t deserve your mercy but we humbly plead for it. I thank you for giving us the freedom that we have. Help our country to turn back to You. Please forgive us of our wickedness. Help Christians to get on fire for you and tell others about Jesus while there is still time. Father, may You be glorified in our state and in our homes. Please help me to hate my sin more than anyone else’s. Please bring revival to my heart as well as all the Christians in Missouri. I thank you and praise You for who you are! In Jesus name, Amen.

Brenda Jenkins, Kansas City, MO September 22, 2021, 11:26 am

Father God, I do pray for the state of Missouri's leaders. I pray that each one of them will be saved and come to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that each one of them will seek You for wisdom, knowledge and discernment as they function in the positions they now hold in our state. Father, I pray for them to have a divine encounter with You and I pray that their hearts will be turned to You before they speak, vote, or share their opinions. I pray that the spirit of conviction will move upon them, and that every vote will be motivated by Holy Spirit, so they can show forth Kingdom principles publicly as they serve this state. In Jesus' Name. Amen

Vicky Carter, Fulton, Mo. September 14, 2021, 7:04 pm

Thank you, Lord, for all that you are and all that you do in and for our world, our country, and my state Missouri. Please forgive us where we have failed you. Thank you for never stopping to love us. I pray for our Governor and family. Be with him every step of the way as he makes decisions for our state. Grant him wisdom in his decisions. May he never be influenced by anyone other than You.

Karen Nimmo, BATTLEFIELD, MO July 14, 2021, 10:53 am

Lord I lift up our State of Missouri and its leaders in every area of our government. I thank you Lord for sending me this website as just yesterday I felt the need to organize with others in sincere prayer. Help me and others to continually remember to pray for the leaders that you will give them wisdom to do the right and Biblical thing no matter the issues before them. Help me and the others praying to make a difference in our communities giving us wisdom, courage and strength to persevere in the middle of the unrest in our nation. Thank you Lord for the important lessons that you will teach us as we navigate what seems to be a new normal. Thank you Lord for a Christian Governor, federal Senators and Representative as well as those same positions on the State level. Please hear our cry to end the pandemic and protect all from the dangers of the virus as well as the shots. Teach me and others the truth and bind up the evil one in our State and Nation. In Jesus name I pray.

William Paten, Columbia, MO June 2, 2021, 7:00 pm

Father in heaven, creator of all we know, sustainer of the environment we breath, leader of the truth we follow through the Holy Bible, the cleanser of our souls through your son Jesus Christ, the Alpha and Omega forever! We seek your divine wisdom in the world in which we live today. We seek your council here in the great state of Missouri. We ask that your wisdom would lead our thoughts from the halls of our government to the classrooms of our schools and the core of our families and the lives which we lead. Our prayer is to be in tune with your will and your word in all of our daily decisions. May wee honor you as we set out to bring the good news of Jesus and His transforming love and power. May all of our leaders in this great state be filled with your Spirit so your truth will be known and acted upon. May your great people in this state take on this responsibility to govern and lead in a way that will glorify you. May we love those who oppose us because of you, the one we adore and serve. May we be vigilant in praying for all our leaders that will form the changes that would honor and please you. In Jesus name, Amen!

Skye Alison, Blue Springs, MO May 30, 2021, 8:59 am

O God, in your Word, you tell us to pray for those in authority and I wish to do so along with many others, asking you for your merices and your help. We are in desperate need. And as our very lives are sustained by You, I pray with theanksgiving you have made us and sustained us for this moment. We recognize You O God as our creator, sustainer and the giver of every good and perfect gift - particularly Jesus, His blood, his salvation, His Word. His covenant, his Holy Spirit, the testimony of his saints and the Comforter and Helper who even now intercedes when I do not even know how to pray as I ought. Lord be glorified. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth. Let your kingdom reign in Missouri; God strengthen those who are putting their trust in you as your word declares you are watching them and delighting in them. Even as the patriarchs of old who so courageously represented you - Moses' parents who hid their child 3 months (Heb) and others in the great hall of faith, Lord be pleased to strengthen your saints today. I pray give courage and wisdom to Josh Hawley and those who love you. Jesus, you said "If you love me, obey me". And I thank you that these days you are calling those who profess religion to be true to the calling they profess. Father, in the name of your dear Son, let your truth keep marching in the hearts of all who love you and are the called according to your purpose. In the mighty and wonderful name of Jesus. Amen.

Brenda Jenkins, Kansas City, MO May 26, 2021, 11:56 am

Dear Father God, I pray for the state of Missouri that those within our state will come into a divine relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that all of the mayors, councilmen, legislators, and all those in authority will come to know Jesus and seek Him for divine strategy before they vote on any legislation that comes before them. May their every decision be built on Biblical principles and saturated with prayer. In Jesus' Name, I pray. Amen

Justin Enderton, Leoti, KS May 20, 2021, 2:37 pm

God, thank You for the men and women who serve our country in leadership roles and for their families. Please provide our leaders with reminders each day of why they decided to dedicate their lives to public service, and use that commitment to encourage them. We pray for our governors and our state legislatures of Missouri. Please give strength and wisdom to them and guide their decisions and may they always put love first. As we look to our governors for assurance and guidance, especially at times of crisis, inspire them and speak through them by the power of your Holy Spirit. In Jesus Christ’s Mighty Name, Amen 🙏🏻

Sharon Crossman, St. Louis, Mo May 19, 2021, 7:15 am

Father, Thank you for your mercy and grace. Thank you for our salvation. Please bless all of our leaders, open their eyes , ears and minds so that they can make right decisions for our country and to walk in your righteous path. Thank you for giving us a senator like Josh Hawley that stands up for us even to the detriment of his family. Please bless him and his beautiful family with safety, health, happiness and prosperity in all that he does. Please bless Mr. Blunt for the service he has done for mo. And during his retirement. Please bless Mr. Parsons and help him in his decisions for our state. Bless all of our leaders. Please change the hearts and minds of our Democrat representatives so that they too will follow you and make right decisions. Father, thank you for sending Trump to us. Please send him again to help straighten out this grave mess we are in. Your will be done now and forever. In Jesus' name we pray! Amen

Rev. Ramona Stonecipher, Kansas City, MO April 28, 2021, 10:41 am

Lord Jesus, I ask that you empower those who have a heart to do Your Will. Show them a path around the Democrats who want to divide our Nation. Draw our leaders to You. Give them courage to plant their feet and stand their ground. Let Your righteousness rule. Father, I ask that our Governor & Mayor draw near to You. That they see clearly that the road the Democrats are going on is wrong for America. Give them the courage to protect our freedoms, to stand firm with our Constitution, to stop the killing of the innocent, to block those who want to take over our children’s education. Lord God, Christians are being targeted in America. Protect those You have called and set apart. Allow Your Will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Shower Your blessings upon Your anointed, and the leaders You have put in office in our State, and in all of America. In the power of Your Son’s name I ask these things. Amen.

Jill Clark, Saint Louis, MO April 15, 2021, 10:23 am

Heavenly Father, Thank You for our diligent, persistent legislators who are defending our American way of life and the country that You intended for us to become. It is for freedom that Christ set us free, not to be under the tyranny of heavy-handed rulers, but to serve You as guided by the Holy Spirit. Please bless and guide leaders like Josh Hawley, who are working tirelessly to call out big government, big tech and other monopolies who are seeking to curtain our freedoms of speech and worship. Allow them success in their endeavors! We praise You and love You!

Meg Welker, Saint Louis, MO May 6, 2021, 6:50 am

Amen. I agree in prayer with Jill. I pray Father that You would protect Sen. Josh Hawley from evil attacks on him. I pray You would strengthen him and encourage him & his family. I pray God that You would give him new & creative ways to speak Your Truth with Power & Authority. I pray God for the open seat that Roy Blunt is vacating, that You would protect the election process in Missouri and that You would raise up that one person that shines above the rest, Lord. Shine that person's Righteousness & protect them from false accusations. Protect their family from harm & from spiritual attacks. We pray for Righteousness to reign in St. Louis City, St Louis County & in Missouri. We pray this in Jesus name. Amen.

Brenda Jenkins, Kansas City, MO April 14, 2021, 5:34 pm

Father God, I pray for all leaders in the State of Missouri. I pray for their salvation first of all, and for those who are saved, I pray that you will give them holy boldness to speak up for righteousness and cry out for truth, righteousness and justice in all of the cities in Missouri. I pray that our leaders will not be afraid to call sin, sin, and that they won't back down when they see evil. Help them to not be afraid of being in the minority if they know that they are doing your will, and standing firmly on Your Word. In Jesus' Name! Amen

Catherine Aman, MOBERLY, MO March 24, 2021, 10:05 am

Our Heavenly Father, we are humbled and awed by the bounty of your love. You have worked persistently to restore your kingdom on earth, calling men and women to be your mouth pieces to guide and shepherd us on this journey. We long to live in your kingdom and ask that you use us, use our public officials and leaders to put aside selfish ambition and put your will for our citizens front and center. We pray most earnestly for the young people of our state that they will be hopeful for their future that the plagues of addictions, suicide and violence will be far from them. We pray that you protect our families as they are the cornerstones of our communities and society. Guide our leaders to be compassionate, wise and insightful as they make decisions that affect all of us.

Missouri is blessed with good leaders at many levels of government. Father, hear my prayer that they will hear your voice and follow your guidance as they make decisions and take actions for the blessing of the the people in this state. May each leader reject the temptations to increase themselves at the expense of doing what is best for the people. May they act in accordance with state, county and local law. May they view needs and people with honesty and compassion. May they speak truth and vote with integrity. Lord, in your mercy, Hear my prayer.

Dana Jones, Washington Mo. March 3, 2021, 12:32 pm

Thank you our God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit for humbling us. Keep us humble that we might see you as you truly are, and our great need for you. Forgive our arrogance and pride. Make us desperate for you. May our leaders be overwhelmed by enormity of what is before them. May they and us cry out to you.

Julie Sheppard, Bridgeport, TX February 20, 2021, 7:04 pm

Heavenly Father, I pray that your will will be done in this state and that You will guide its leaders with Your truth and Your love, in Jesus name, Amen.

Sharon Crossman, St. Louis February 16, 2021, 2:38 am

Lord please open the eyes, ears and hearts of all of our government leaders so that they will fight to end abortion in our state and protect the children.

Richard bauer, St Louis MO, MO February 15, 2021, 12:08 pm

May God watch over you and protect you and keep you on the straight and narrow with no influence of any kind from Satan or any of his off spring, namely Democrats or Rinos

Lindy Davis, Bolivar, MO February 15, 2021, 11:11 am

Prayer that they know and have a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ as Personal Savior; and the Holy Bible is their basis for making the laws of our State and Nation. Praying God's riches blessings be upon then as they follow Jesus and the Holy Bible.

Angel J., Nearby February 9, 2021, 2:17 pm

Lord, let Your spirit fall upon the state of Missouri, cast out all lies and deception. Open ears and clear eyes so that Your holy truth is heard and seen. Lord, reveal Yourself to those who do not know You, show Your mighty arm and Your intense love for this state and it's citizens. Purge all evil and submerge them in Your goodness. Clear their minds and hearts and submerge them in Your holy peace. Help them to confess, turn from their sins and give them speed to run quickly to Your arms of mercy and grace. Grant them wisdom in abundance for themselves, their neighbors and our government. In the mighty name of Jesus, amen and amen.
