5 Things to Remember When Praying for Our President

If you claim to believe the Bible, then here are 5 things to remember when praying for our president.

  1. He is set in place by God.
  2. He is only human.
  3. His heart is in God’s hands.
  4. Judgement begins at the house of God.
  5. Christ died for him too.

 1. He is set in place by God

Romans 13:1 Clearly states that, “The authorities that exist have been established by God.”  Although our supreme obedience is always to the governing of Christ, we must understand that He has chosen this leader for this time in our nation for a purpose.

2. He is only human.

Psalm 108:12 is a prayer to God, “Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless.”  As much as some people would like for our president to be the savior of the world, and as much as others would like for him to be the devil himself, at the end of the day he is only a man.  Hope in God!

3. His heart is in God’s hands.

Proverbs 21:1 says that the king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, and He turns it where He would like.  God is capable of directing the heart of ANY leader of our country in whichever way He chooses.

4. Judgement begins at the house of God.

1 Peter 4:17 says, “For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household.”  We shouldn’t expect those who don’t follow Christ to act like they do.  What we should be concerned with is that, as believers, we are modeling the nature and actions of our savior.  Judgement starts with the church.

5. Christ died for him too.

Acts 10:34 says, “God is no respecter of persons.”  When John 3:16 says that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son so that WHOEVER believes in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life… Guess what?  That includes our president.

How about when you pray for Him, you pray FOR him instead of AGAINST him.
