Praying for Our PresidentBy: Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne
Publish date: 07/15/2017
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4 KJV
Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 1 Timothy 2:8 KJV
Prayer Power Made Available to the Church.
The keys of the Kingdom.
Matthew 16:19 KJV – “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Authority has been given to us.
Matthew 28:18-20 KJV – “ And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Elijah was a man of like passions and his prayers were answered.
James 5:16-18 KJV – “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.”
Be bold to pray and to take God at His Word.
A Praying Church is a Victorious Church.
Psalm 2:8 KJV - “Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.”
Standing in the gap and crying out – in prayer and intercession – for our President.
Isaiah 59:16 AMP – “And He saw that there was no man and wondered that there was no intercessor [no one to intervene on behalf of truth and right]; therefore His own arm brought Him victory, and His own righteousness [having the Spirit without measure] sustained Him.”
This is why we have the 24-hour prayer center.
We want to launch a prayer vigil 24/7, from today, specifically for our President.
We pray for Divine protection for our President; for God to have mercy on America one more time just like He has each century.
For another Great Awakening.
For total confusion in the camp of the wicked, and for the enemy to be set back.
For the wheels to be pulled off of Pharaoh’s chariots.
Whatever is being planned in secret, let it be exposed publicly.
For the Church to wake up and for the harvest of souls to come in.
Proverbs 29:2 KJV - “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
Will You Stand in the Gap and Pray on Behalf of Our President?
One more hour of daylight – the sun is fast setting on the horizon of time.
Pray – in the Spirit and also in English (or your language) whatever the Holy Spirit leads you to pray.
1 Corinthians 14:15a KJV – “What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also…”
Make yourself available to be used of God to stand in the gap.
Yield to the Holy Spirit.
