Lord God Almighty. Let us listen closely for your voice, advise, what to do with this mess we sinners created. In reading about your special David, he consulted and asked what he should do you generously responded. Could it be that we have not asked for your input always telling you or asking you to fix this USA the way we think it should be. Lord God I repent and ask you to speak loudly and clearly to someone who will be your champion and spread your exact word on how to handle this evil that is blooming and taking over like a weed of poison Ivy. Lord we beseech you and beg you to speak so we can know what you want us to do... In Your sons almighty amazing name I pray, Amen.

Dear Lord, I pray for godly wisdom for all our state and national leaders as they make decisions that affect our nation and its people. I pray that they would diligently seek your face and your will in these decisions and the actions they take for our nation and our relations with other nations especially with out allies and enemies.

Our sin is great, our God is greater. Forgive us as a nation for our sin against you, a Holy God. You God have appointed Jesus as the name above every other name, that at His name, every knee should bow and tongue confess that He is Lord, in heaven, on earth and under the earth. Authority over every principality, power and all those who exalt themselves above the power of God. Holy Spirit reign, have your way in this state where so much corruption exists. Expose the wicked and raise up the righteous for your glory. In Jesus name!

Heavenly Father, You know bills HR 1 and HR 5 and You know the motive behind them. Father, I am asking that you expose the evil in these bills and speak to each and every Representative and Senator voting on these bills. Lord, give them a heart for you and ears to hear Your will on these bills. Reveal the enemies agenda to each and every one of them Lord. Your word says if anyone lacks wisdom to ask You for it and You will give it freely. I am asking on behalf of everyone serving in the United States government to receive Your wisdom and for You to open the eyes of their understanding. Lord all throughout the Bible Your Word speaks of how You the God of the Impossible revealed the schemes of the enemy and You protected Your people. Father, protect this country from the schemes of the enemy. Forgive those that do not know what they are doing and soften their hearts towards You. Holy Spirit be present in all rooms of the Capitol and every office in Washington D.C. Bring forth the Father's will for this country. Let there be a revival of new souls for the Kingdom. In Jesus's Mighty Name.

Abba, Listen to Your children, calling out for your intervention in the work of our leaders. We are Your people and see the great need for revival in this land. Open the hearts of those who scoff at You and do that which is evil in Your sight. Open all our hearts, that we may be compassionate and mindful of the fact that it is Your desire that all be converted unto You.

Father, I agree with Carolyn in Branson, MO's prayer "I pray for the state of Virginia that in every way your values will be manifested in city, county, and state. May the people repent from all wickedness and turn to You with hearts of contrition, humbly seeking Your face. May You pour out Your Spirit on all who profess You as Savior and Lord that they would take up the mantle of serving You with their whole hearts with boldness and courage to stand against evil and unafraid to speak the name of Jesus Lord of Lords and King of Kings!"
