Father God, stir the heart of your people to rise up and do what your kingdom principals speaks. That they would not fear man but God. That faith would rise and that they would set their eyes like flint to the Lord Jesus. Father God, it is time your people rise from the seats and take their position and release their voice in peace and stand to do what is Righteousness for the generation of now and the future in Jesus name.

Heavenly Father, we praise YOUR NAME -YOU are TRUTH and we ask that TRUTH would reign in South Dakota. Thank you for the mighty work YOU are doing through Governor Kristi Noem. We trust that she will vote responsibly, vote to protect the GOD designed roles of men and women. Thank you for for setting South Dakota in a position to vote for YOUR TRUTH. Please LORD GOD continue to protect this brave woman and her family. I pray that she would have favor with her state legislature and that they would walk in wisdom continuing all the days to uphold YOUR TRUTH every decision they are involved in for their people. In the name of our precious SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

Cynthia Scott, Interlochen, MI March 24, 2021, 7:10 am

Our Almighty Lord of heaven and earth! You are sovereign and ruler above all men! We magnify your name as you deserve! We humbly bow before you in admiration and honor. You know our present trials in this evil and untoward generation. We beseech Thee to intervene in our behalf! Lord God, the atrocities of men’s capabilities are beyond our imagination! We praise you that you have quickened our hearts to see the wickedness being attempted in efforts to require all to discard your truth that you created male and female and created all men equal, that you are no respecter of persons. As the attacks against your people intensifies, we ask that your Holy Spirit fills us to overflowing that we will respond in your power, not our own for we know that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities against rulers of darkness in high places. We need you, Lord! You are our only hope! We pray for this lost and dying world that men’s blinders would be removed and they would hunger and thirst for righteousness and be saved. In the Precious Name of Jesus Christ and for His Sake, Amen!

Linda Sansone, Franklin, TN March 17, 2021, 6:38 am

Heavenly Father, just as you gave wisdom to Moses to appoint elders among the Israelites, you blessed our founders with the wisdom to divide our country into individual states. You have empowered our governors and state legislatures to make laws and decrees which manage our daily lives, make our lives safe, and protect us from federal government overreach. We pray for our governors and our state legislatures. Please give strength and wisdom to them and guide their decisions and may they always put love first. Surround them with people from all walks of life and many backgrounds. Bring to them people of high moral character and spiritual maturity. Among the many voices which cry out to them every day, may they hear your voice above all others. 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’ name. Amen.

Marlene Williams, Wichita, KS March 10, 2021, 10:59 am

Lord God, I lift up those leaders in this state that they would lead in a Godly fashion. They would uphold your laws. I pray for Godly wisdom for all their leaders. Bless them as they stand for Godly values. In Jesus precious name, amen.

Julia Kilpatrick, Silsbee, TX March 10, 2021, 9:14 am

Lord, let your godly values prevail in South Dakota! I lift up the governor and state legislators to desire to know you and your will. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Gwen Young, Loma Linda, CA March 3, 2021, 7:57 pm

Lord, I pray for those in positions of authority in South Dakota to exercise their responsibilities with integrity and consistent with the values of our nation's founding. Give them a passion for legislation that supports family, faith, freedom, person and interpersonal responsibility. Cause them to see that their state and its residents prosper when they govern righteously. Make them aware that you see, know, care and will ultimately call for an accounting of that with which they've been entrusted.

S. Giles, Sioux Falls, SD March 3, 2021, 4:35 pm

Lord, thank you that you have given South Dakota a good governor in Mrs. Kristi Noem. Please continue to protect her, to give her great wisdom, and to have favor in all she does. Thank you that you've given her courage and strength. Protect her husband and family as well.

Bonnie Lofthus, Long Lake, MN March 3, 2021, 9:39 am

Lord, raise up Godly leaders who are full of courage. Cause them to have widespread influence, wisdom, and creativity. May they be filled w/your Spirit to know what to do because they have the mind of Christ, know who they are in Christ and know their purpose. May they know the authority they have to bring heaven to earth.
