May they give Him thanks for the peace and order that He brings. Give thanks for God fearing men and women serving in these positions.
We lift up our brothers & sisters & those yet to come that they may know He is present in their midst and hears their prayers. Let us pray that even in the midst of dire circumstances and even in the midst of severe threats and actions of death they will have the grace to STAND NO MATTER WHAT and not forsake Jesus Yeshua Isa – Son of the Living God.

Special Prayer Request!!
• Pray for divine protection over our nation during the electoral process. Pray for a leader who will ultimately allow us to “lead peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (1 Tim. 2:2). Scripture says “For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisors” (Prov. 11:14). Remember the fallen soldiers on Memorial Day.
• Let us be ever mindful of our brothers and sisters around the world who are discriminated against, slandered, unjustly accused, arrested, imprisoned, beaten, exiled or killed. They need us to stand with them in prayer as they suffer in your name. God of all comfort, for those who are tortured both in body and mind, give them the grace to endure their suffering. (Romans 15:5-6, 2 Thessalonians 1:4-5, 11-12).
• Let’s pray for great awakening!... Not just here, but the entire world.
