Pray For Barack Obama Con’t

Ok, here are the other 5 things we can be praying for over our President Elect. Again, whether you voted for him or not, the godly thing to do is to pray for our leaders!! It’s Bible people–pure Bible!!

6. Ask for the spirit of reconciliation. Some
segments of our deeply divided society want nothing
to do with Obama now that he has won the presidency.
Even some Christians will be tempted to harbor
resentment and nurse political grudges throughout
his term in office. Pray that God will grant
forgiveness and healing so that leaders on all
political levels can have constructive dialogue.

7. Pray that Obama will adopt pro-life convictions.
Many politicians have changed their views on key
issues while in office. In the 1800s some leaders
who favored slavery later denounced it. In the 1950s
some who opposed racial integration later became
champions of it. Even though Obama won approval from
many voters because he sanctions abortion, God could
soften and change his heart.

8. Bind all evil forces assigned to manipulate our president. The
specter of Islamic terrorism looms over the United States, and dark
forces are ready to infiltrate. Our only hope lies in prayer to the
God who is able to expose and outwit the schemes of the
wicked. This is truly a time for spiritual warfare,
and intercessors must not come off the wall in this
hour! Pray that no foreign government, terrorist
organization or demonic principality will use Obama
as a tool. We must stand strong against the spirit
of antichrist that promotes dictatorship,
persecution of Christians and hostility toward
Israel.

9. Pray that Obama’s door will remain open to the
church. The loudest voices of secular culture would be happy if religion were removed
from public life. Pray that Obama, who claims to
have a personal faith in Jesus Christ, will unapologetically
welcome Christian leaders into his company and seek their counsel.
And pray that false religious leaders (who claim to know Christ but
deny His power) will not have his ear.

10. Pray that our nation will enjoy God’s peace
and blessing during the Obama administration. The
apostle Paul instructed early believers to pray for
all in authority “so that we may lead a tranquil
and quiet life in all godliness and dignity” (1
Tim. 2:2, NASB). God’s will is for America to
experience peace and prosperity so that we can
continue to export the gospel to the nations. This
must happen whether a Democrat or a Republican is in
the White House. As we cry out for God’s mercy on
our wayward nation, pray that He will allow us to be
a light to the world as we finance global missions,
feed and heal the world’s poor and share
Christ’s love at home and abroad.

  1. Very good prayer points PP. As Christians we are called to prayer, even for those who we may consider our enemies…how much more for the man who will govern our country and his family!

    I know alot of Christians out there are tender to this election especially because of the issue of abortion. It is a national shame for America, but we need to be praying for a shift in the hearts of the people of our nation towards it…for people to see it for what it really is. Our hope is in the power of the Holy Spirit to change hearts and the power of the church to change minds…not in our soley in our government.

    Miss you all!

  2. I agree that we need to pray for Obama. Perhaps we need to pray even more than our current president because of some of the “platforms” Obama has stood on. When I heard he won, I grieved deeply as I thought of the millions of lives that may never see breath depending on what policies and laws Obama chooses to allow. I have been deeply praying for him to experience a true revelation from God on what life is and to realize it IS in his paygrade to form that opinion. This also has brought out to me many Christians (some attend FHC) that have told me they are pro-choice. This also grieved me and I pray for them too. I do pray for him to seek Godly counsel and for his safety. Thanks for this great reminder of how specifically to pray for him and his family.

  3. Correction on his daughters names. Change Natasha to Sasha as we know God knows her name but want to call out the correct name in our times of intercession. And thanks for the points of prayer.

  4. How did I miss that? I had a friend in school named Sasha and thought it was funny she had the same name! Thanks for catching that !
