Father I pray for Godly wisdom for those governing. I pray that Holy Spirit quicken their spirit, and that they hear His voice speaking only amid the lies, greed and madness as they make this pivotal decision. Stop the sacrificing of our babies, and allow our nation to repent of this grave sin. Father forgive us all in Jesus' might name. Amen

Heavenly Father, You who are righteous and just, I repent of the evil that has been done in our state and ask that in Your Sovereign Mercy You would bring about a move of Your Most Holy Spirit across our state, sweeping those out of public office that are perpetrating this evil against the young ones in NYS. Lord we pray against the lies of the enemy, we pray against confusion. Where can we go but to you Lord. Hear our prayers Lord. Show forth Your Might. You have said you will shake what can be shaken. Shake those evil doers Lord, shake them out of their positions of influence. In Jesus precious name I pray. Amen

I pray that our leaders be guided by the role of Jesus, to find the goodness and possibilities in all, to do what is right for all, to follow through with commitment for social justice and equality for all

Father, we acknowledge that apart from you, we can't do anything. In your sovereignty overall circumstances, we ask you to raise godly men and women to lead this state that gives glory to your name. Remove anyone that professes to stand for truth and for you but is actually marring the truth with lies and giving himself/herself the tool to propagate more lies. Give us the discerning spirit to know where we are heading as leaders and legislatures we have elected pass and implement the law of the state/city. Empower us to defeat any attempt of the enemy to destroy your people, your church, and the people in our state/city. Let the people know that America is blessed because of you - the author and perfector of our faith.
Sharon Bubniak, Syracuse, NY April 28, 2021, 10:56 am
Lord please open the hearts of your leaders in every state, county, city, community and give them a heart for God and for the people. Open the eyes of our president, vice president and the full cabinet so that they can follow the will of God which is perfect, loving and holy.
Janine Conrow, Savannah, NY April 12, 2021, 11:17 am
God we need to get back the days where we held you up in prayer and praised you. We need our leaders locally and nation wide to open themselves up to your ways. Lord we ask this in your son Yahshua's name and through his blood so be it.
Catharine Root, Addison, NY April 12, 2021, 7:41 am
Lord, It is your desire for this state to prosper, but there is opposition to this. We release the angels to complete their assignments to tear down the strongholds and wicked high places, to eradicate the evil plans and the sin havens in this state. We ask that you give us Godly leadership, those who love you, love your people, and that what you have provided. For those who are blinded we ask their eyes be opened and that they would seek your face and turn from their wicked ways. I ask for those who are caught up in witchcraft and control in the church that they be delivered and desire unity with you and Godly brothers and sisters. Father I thank you for all that you have given us and that you have blessed us despite our shortcomings. I thank you for your goodness and mercy over our nation and this state. I pray for our leaders that they would come to know you. You put leaders up and you take them down. You know the hearts of men. Father we want our state to be given and run by you. We want a revival here. We want you here. Have your way with this land. We pray this in the authority that you have given us through Jesus your son and the work He completed on the cross.
Linda Bennett, Honeoye Falls, NY April 12, 2021, 5:30 am
Dear Father...Your word says you can move the hearts of kings. Please move the hearts of those in leadership in our country and especially in New York state. People are accepting lies as truth, looking for a utopia through government intervention. Even some Christians are falling for these lies. Please speak to their hearts. Help them to see the lies for what they are. Please turn hearts back to you. Give us courage to speak out. Thank you for hearing our prayers.
Alice Painter, Blue Point, NY March 10, 2021, 11:12 am
Heavenly Father, forgive our sins as a nation; may we repent for killing our babies and turning away from you! May Believers humble themselves before you and cry out on behalf of New York State. Cause our leaders to set and uphold biblical legislation, constitutional laws founded upon the word of God. You appoint the leaders, cause them to do your will, Lord. We love you and trust you. In Jesus’ name, amen
Donna Higgie, Norwich, NY March 3, 2021, 3:17 pm
Pray that the New York representatives in the senate will vote according to God's lead for the Equality Act vote.
Maria Morais, Carmel, NY February 15, 2021, 3:19 pm
May the Lord God Almighty pierce your hearts that you may realize that God is the giver of life!!! He alone is the ONE who gives life and takes it away! May you truly consider how much God grieves when life is being taken by the hands of men. May you consider your own life and the lives of your family members... aren't you grateful that they are here.... aren't you thankful that you have children and grandchildren? Imagine for a moment, if they decided to terminate their pregnancies... who would remain in your family line to enjoy your life with? How can life (which is such a beautiful gift from our Creator) be so meaningless? How do we know if we have not terminated great leaders, entrepeneurs, scientists, doctors and alike because this precious innocent life was terminated? How can people not see the sanctity of Life and how truly priceless it is? I pray that the Lord will speak to your very heart and soul... and that YOU, our leaders, would take a firm stand for THE SANCTITY OF LIFE!!!!
John O’Sullivan, Oceanside, NY February 8, 2021, 10:35 am
Lord God, I thank you for hearing our prayers. I thank you for your mercy and goodness now and always. I lift up the State of New York to you, Lord, as well as all the states in our precious nation. I ask for guidance for our leaders so that we can get back on track to be led biblically. I ask these things and others which are stored in my heart that you know, Lord, in your most holy and precious son's name, Jesus!
