Prayer

Officials, leaders and rulers

Officials, leaders and rulers

Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! (Psalm 2:10; NLT).

Justice – do you rulers know the meaning of the word? Do you judge the people fairly? (Psalm 58:1; NLT).

So Jesus called them [the disciples] together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else (Mark 10:25-42-4; NLT).


Lord,
I pray for all officials,
Leaders and rulers –
Those with power
Throughout your world.

Please fill their hearts
With wisdom, love,
Justice, peace,
And mercy.

Help them to serve
Their people fairly,
So they can stand before you
Without shame, each day.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
