Prayer for Members of Parliament - B and C

Posted by donnadawson on March 19, 2012 at 8:40 AM

Now it becomes a challenge.  It would be easy to slip away from this prayer vigil at this point because it seems to be repetitive.  Jesus has called us to pray for our government.  I said it before and I'll repeat it.  If I must pray alone, so be it, but imagine what our country would be like if Christians committed to pray for our leaders?  So we move on to praying for those with names ending in the letters 'B' and 'C'.

Dear Lord God Almighty.  You see everything.  You see our hearts and you know what we think and desire.  We live in a world of corruption because we have failed to do the things you have called us to do.  We wonder why our leaders don't maintain leadership of faith in you and yet we refuse to interrupt our busy lives to pray as you have commanded.  So, here, now, we lift up these men and women listed below.  We call upon you to open their eyes to your truth.  You are the God of truth and no lies can be found in you.  We are surrounded by lies and deception because we have abandoned you.  We repent her before you for our unfaithfulness and we ask you to renew our hearts.  Set these leaders afire with a love for you and a desire to do your will.  Cleanse them from the lies and deceipt that plagues our parliament.  Shine your truth upon them and use them to bring your glory and truth back to Canada.  Raise up people who will commit to praying for the leadership of our country and help us to stay the course.  All glory belongs to you, oh Lord.  In Jesus' name and through the power of your Holy Spirit of truth.  Amen!

Thank you, Donna, for framing this worthy prayer, and for the excellent work in putting together this section of the MP listing. It greatly helps to guide and inform our praying.
