Dear Lord, Thank you for answering our prayers to insure this Congress will not eliminate the filibuster and our right to vote in future elections. Thank you for intervening with the vote of one senator to take a stand against his own party and prevent the death of our democracy. Now there is hope that we may reverse the damages being done to your country in the next election. Please protect Senator Manchin and his family against the attacks from the evil one which will threaten his life and others who want to speak out. In Jesus name we pray, Amen

Kay, Starkville, MS June 8, 2021, 8:03 am

Father, we thank you that you are a God who sees, and hears, and knows all things, and who rules, ultimately, in the affairs of men. We are grateful for leaders like Senaator Manchin who are willing to stand against partisan politics and seek to do what is right and best for our country. Thank you for his courage. We pray that his example will inspire others to follow suit and that this may be a step toward a return to doing the business of this nation based on common sense and foresight rather than on a desire to impose a particular agenda upon anyone of a different opinion. Surround Senator Manchin with your protection and may he not be intimidated by the face of man but walk in integrity and the fear of the Lord, knowing that one day he will stand before you to give an account of the way he carried out his responsibilities. We intercede for America and all its leaders, praying you will raise up godly men and women who will seek your face and work for the good of our country, and we ask that you improve or remove those whose goals are fundamental changes to our nation's foundations. You alone are sovereign and we praise and worship you!

Averie Alverson, Grand Rapids, MI June 8, 2021, 6:55 am

Lord, thank you for Senator Manchin and the thoughtful way he addresses the issues in the Senate. Continue to bless him and guide him as he fulfills his duties as Senator.

Helenann Steensen, Marysville, MI June 8, 2021, 6:17 am

Dear Lord, Only through you comes strength and perseverance. Thank you for Senator Manchin’s willingness to stand for your truth and justice. Help his stand to be a testimony to others of your will for our nation to retain the liberty and freedom we were founded on. Watch over him and his family and provide protection for their safety, security, and peace in their conviction to follow biblical values.

Melody Smith, Forest, VA April 5, 2021, 10:09 am

Dear Father, I pray for Senator Manchin. Lord, give him strength to do what is right. There is pressure on him to follow the democratic party line. Give him fortitude. Help others to stand for what is right, even under mounting pressure. In Jesus's name, Amen

Maggie Orton, Crystal Lake, IL March 24, 2021, 1:21 pm

Lord, I pray for the leaders in the local and state levels to be transformed in Jesus' name. May the hearts of the leaders soften and be stirred for truth and justice as they serve in their capacity as leaders. Father, I lift up the state of West Virginia and ask you to send a sweeping wind of revival over West Virginia, in the homes of families, in the communities, in the churches, in the schools, in the courtrooms, in public places, over the whole state. Let revival come to the hearts of the people and let your purposes be fulfilled. Work in the hearts of believers and give them courage and boldness to speak truth and stand up for biblical values and may it spread like a wild fire across the state of West Virginia. I pray in the powerful name of Jesus! Amen!

Karen Turner-Reed, Lebanon, OH March 19, 2021, 1:16 pm

Lord God Almighty, we come boldly before the Throne and we ask that you place on the leaders from local and state and federal hearts to full fill your purpose. Your will, Lord be done not mans. Evil has corrupted the judicial systems, the local, state and federal levels of this land. Oh Lord, you govern all. Let these leaders be shaken with a mighty force that they get no peaceful rest until they open their hearts to your voice. Breathe on them Oh Lord and let them know that you, the Alpha and the Omega are sovereign. We pray for this country and we ask for your Mercy for the sins we have committed against you. We know that your protection for this country is the only shield we need. We pray for a 'great awakening of souls" seeking your forgiveness and grace. In Jesus name we pray, Amen

Kathie Small, Danese, WV March 5, 2021, 12:23 pm

Lord I hold our leaders up to you for healing and strength to guide them in serving the people they represent . In Jesus name I pray. AMEN

Butch45 Cline, Philippi WV February 22, 2021, 10:41 am
