A Prayer for Politicians

Because they (and, let’s be honest, all of us!) need all the prayers we can get right now.

O Sovereign Lord, we pray for politicians the world over. The ones we adore and the ones we despise, all of whom will answer to You. We pray especially for those who dishonor You by ruling dishonestly, harmfully, and unjustly. Guard the weak and the needy from their tyranny. And teach us, even in our sinfulness, to love them enough to celebrate whatever good they do and to call them to account for the wrong. Most of all, Lord, we pray that you would captivate their hearts and minds that their rule may echo the justice, mercy, and humility of Your own rule, revealed in Christ our Lord. In His name, we pray. Amen.
