Prayer Points for Government
Pray for leaders of courage and integrity to stand for what is right. That they would be willing to ask God for wisdom to make wise decisions that will benefit every Canadian and uphold a standard of righteous values for our nation.When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability. Prov. 28:2 NLT
Pray our nation’s leaders will not be swayed from our own Charter of Rights, which begins “whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the Supremacy of God and the Rule of Law.” We desire a nation that upholds, for example, that everyone has the freedom of conscience and religion, freedom of thought, opinion, and expression.
Pray that Bill C-14, Physician Assisted Dying, would not become a norm in Canada, but rather, that good palliative care would be recognized and expanded in our nation to care for those who are approaching the end of life.
Pray for wise and Godly counselors to help our leaders reach their full potential. Pray also for an increase of a generation of Josephs, Esthers, and Daniels who can be raised up to advocate and provide wise counsel for righteous judgments and decisions.Without wise leadership, a nation falls; there is safety in having many advisers. Prov. 11:14
Pray for our Supreme Court as they interpret laws relating to the Charter of Rights. Pray that these nine judges will uphold foundational values protecting what God deems as just or unjust in our nation.
Pray that our political leaders would be encouraged to live a lifestyle that promotes good health and endurance 1 Cor 9:24. May they also pursue meaningful time with their family, which brings stability at home and at work, 1Tim.3: 4,5.
Pray for an awakening among Canadian Christians to have a greater understanding of the times and to seize the day to shine for Jesus. May we be strategic in how we equip the next generation to give a good defense for what they believe. Let’s not resign ourselves for a posture of retreat, but let us press on towards the goal that God has called us heavenwards in Christ Jesus. I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us, Phil. 3:14. 8. Pray that God would give you as a congregation ideas and strategies to serve your communities and local MLA and MP. Let us ask God how we may Purpose in our society rather than constantly seen as Opposing. Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ, Col. 3:23-24.
