“My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding
and if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.”
Proverbs 2:1-5

Lord, we are in tumultuous times around the world. in a place where technology rules, the world, in it’s vast expanse, becomes very small. today i pray for our leaders. the ones in high places, the ones close to home, the ones in the public eye, and the ones that few see. i pray they would have wisdom beyond their understanding, they would make choices that protect the ones they lead, they would not be influenced by greed or power, that they would hear You and obey and follow Your instruction. i pray they would put others before themselves. as they follow You, i pray You would bless them, protect their families, walk beside them and comfort them, encourage them. i pray You would make Yourself known to them today in abundant ways.

thank You, Lord, for each leader who has stepped up to lead and put others needs before their own. today i pray You would give them peace, joy, strength, so they may lead as You have called them and love for their calling.

“for the Lord gives wisdom
and from His mouth come knowledge & understanding
He holds victory in store for the upright
He is a shield to those whose walk is blameless
for He guards the course of the just
and protects the way of His faithfulness”
Proverbs 2:6-8
