Gebedpunt/Prayer 16-01-2021

Father God, the King of kings and the Lord of lords,

We thank You for a government that is willing to admit mistakes and be responsible. In this time of crisis, we continue to fix our eyes on You regardless of the political situation. We pray for all parties involved a time to reflect and to restart. Evaluated experience is a good teacher. Father God, lead each one’s hands through this period of time. Continue to align our (future) government to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with You, O Lord. (Mic 6:8). We pray that the (future) leaders that You would have put in place will use the authority that You give them wisely and righteously, and will not take it lightly.  We proclaim that our government is a government that serves with virtues and excellencies. We pray also that our government is the protector of the weak, and the helpless, and the defender of the oppressed. 

O Lord, continue to stir up the hearts of Your people to pray and repent and turn away from the evil that we are doing, then You Lord, You promise that You will hear us in heaven, forgive our sins and make our land prosperous again. (2 Chro 7:14).

In Jesus’s name, we pray, amen.
