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. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)
“Almighty God, we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection.” George Washington
“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day.” Abraham Lincoln
What better way to celebrate Presidents’ Day than by praying for the President and his leadership of this country? It’s biblical. George did it. Abe did it. We should do it, too.
Don’t know what to pray?

And here’s a link to the new White House web site. Plenty of prayer material there.
