iPray: Day 11

A prayer for believers in positions of leadership offered by Simeon

I urge then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone, for kings and all those in authority that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness 1st Timothy 2:1-2

Father in heaven I want to say thank you and appreciate you for the gift of life, for loving us and giving your son for us…for giving us your spirit also to guide and minister to us lord we say thank you.

I want to use this moment to thank you for your children that have labored and are currently in top management, government offices and handling their own personal businesses, for those of them that have lived and conducted their businesses by your principles lord I say thank you for the grace that brought them to the various positions they now occupy.

You alone know those that truly live by and work by your principles, for these ones, lord we ask for more strength for them and for more wisdom .That you help them to operate in integrity so that they can obtain favour from you as they go about their dealings with other people.

Lord, it seems like the environment gets harsher everyday for those who seek you and walk by your principles, we want to ask that you continue to be with your children in all stages of their career and in all levels of the economy. We ask for an indwelling of your spirit so that they will be over-comers in every sense of the word. We ask that whenever they face decisions, you will help them to see beyond themselves and the next moment but consider the end of the matter and decide rightly. We declare that in moments of turbulence and uncertainties your peace will reign in their hearts. Lord we also ask that you help them also to please you in every other aspect of their lives outside the office.

We ask all these in Jesus’ name.

Lord we bless you, and say thank you thank you thank you for granting all we have asked for.

All the glory to you Lord.

LORD, We give you praise for all christian leaders. PROTECT THEM IN THEIR POSITIONS. Cause the enemy to run the other way. Strengthen them for battle if battle comes to their camp. Show them your plans from their positon. Cause them to seek your will. Surround them with trustworthy comrads that support your work, your goals, your purpose - and keep them accountable to each other for the benifit of each other and the whole. Raise up Christain Leaders where there are none. Plant new ones where others have lost their way. Help them with creative ways to share your heart - to lead by example. May they never forget who placed them there! May they honor you in all their decisions and actions - even when it's easier and maybe more profitable to look the other way.

WE just pray a special blessing over the christain leaders all over the world. Enlarge their territory. May your hand be upon them. Keep them from evil that they may not cause pain. We humbly ask these things in the Name of Jesus Christ - Amen.

Dear Lord thank you for Simeon for this reminder to lift up our brothers and sisters who have the burden of responsibility unto you. Father, you created them for such a time as this and I pray that your Spirit falls upon them with a fresh anointing that enables them to do as occasion demands. Father help them to stand for truth, for justice, for mercy, for righteousness. Let them be known for their integrity and even when persecution comes give them the grace to endure it. May they live their lives to please you, Lord open doors of opportunity to them, bless the works of their hands, protect and guide them in the mighty name of Jesus.

I bless your name Lord, I magnify you in Jesus name I pray. Amen and amen.

Oh God, thank You first of all for this opportunity to come before you and bare it all. Thank You for destroying the barricades of the curtains of the temple between yourself and us.

Lord, please help those in authoritative positions who are tempted with each passing day. Father, you said that temptations will come, but You will always make a way of escape. Father, these ways of escape are not always visible immediately. Pleaseeee OPEN THE EYES of our understanding to see what we cannot see in the physical.

In Jesus's Name, Amen.

Our Lord and God Your words reminds us that to much is given much is expected. Most High God, to whom all blessings flow, we lift up our leaders in you, people you have placed in high places before you; Lord we ask for your knowledge and understanding in handling the affairs you have placed in their hands. And the strenght to stand for you.

Heavenly Father, let your presence be with them always so that they are able to distingush themselves in your affairs. Grant them the spirit of determination to remain loyal to you, that their accusers will never find any fault in them.

Thank You LOrd because we know our prayers have been answered in Jesus Name.
