“Prayer Points for Our Nation, the Body of Christ, and Leaders,” by Donna Cole (click title to download PDF)
Have Faith that God hears:
You do not have because you do not ask. (James 4:2)
In everything by prayer…let your requests be made known to God… (Philippians 4:6)
Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. (Mattew 18:19-20)
In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. (Ephesians 6:16-18)
Praying for Leaders and Nation:
We pray for every leader, President, Attorney General Barr, Supreme Court Justices ( And nominees to come), Congress and Senate, Mayors, Governors, Police Officers, Judges in our land, that you will give them wisdom. I pray that the justice system will have eyes to see in the spirit realm (Whether they realize it or not) And that they will have divine wisdom upon them and rule with God’s righteousness and according to God’s plan.
“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:1-5)
May the spirit of prophecy start to work in our leaders. Where they start to speak by you spirit whether they know it or not, like you did with Caiaphas.
“You do not realize that is better for you that one man die for people than that the whole nation parish. Caiaphas did not see this of his own. Instead, as high priest that year, he was prophesying that Jesus would die for the nation…” (Acts 11:50-51)
Lord let our leaders do your will. Change them even as you did for Saul when he was the leader of Israel and Paul in the New Testament.
“Then the Spirit of the LORD will rush upon you, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be transformed into a different person.” (1 Samuel 10:6)
“Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10)
We bind evil right now over our nation. I ask you that righteousness would reign in our country and evil is exposed and cut off. Jesus pull your sword of justice out and bring justice where every evil is. Every agenda that is not of you bring it into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
“I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:18-19)
As believers we lay at the root an ax and cut off and dismantle the evil and it’s power over our nation, over our country, over our state and over our city. We cut it off. We cut off evil and its purposes. That it will not bring forth fruit. That righteousness will reign through our justice system and government. And that God would either change hearts or remove those who will not rule and agree with his righteousness. We pray that he would remove those who take bribes and have selfish agendas rather than God’s agenda, those who are serving themselves and not our nation. Have mercy upon our nation and remove those who would cause our nation to go in a wrong direction.
“Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:10-11)
Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
We need mercy and your loving kindness over our nation. When your judgement comes and you separate the ‘sheep’ nations, from the ‘goat nations’, let us be a sheep nation. Let us be found with righteousness in our account before you.
“All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in…” (Matthew 25:32-35)
Prayers for the Body:
We repent. We take accountability for our actions and beliefs. We turn our face back to you. We ask that you would heal our land.
“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
May the fire of the Holy Spirit consume every evil and chaff in our lives, believers lives and those who are in leadership. You are a consuming fire. Remove those things that are unfruitful in our lives. Deliver us from our sins and from the evil one.
“And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.” (Matthew 6:13)
In Jesus name, a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God for all believers. That their eyes would be flooded with revelation. That they will know the hope of which they have been called. And the power that raised Jesus from the dead.
“That the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may KNOW [experience] what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power…” (Ephesians 1:17-19)
That every believer will hear your voice and you would show them their future. What is their part in this generation. That they will have hope.
“Where there is no revelation, or prophetic insight, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.” (Proverbs 29:18)
For the church to be strengthened, for corruption to be revealed, and for the great harvest!“
So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his field.” (Matthew 9:38)
Pray to receive the Spirit’s power so that Jesus’ presence would be manifest in us, so we experience God’s love.
“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” (Ephesians 3:16-19)
Pray for God’s love to grow in us by the knowledge of God, resulting in righteousness in our lives.
“I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God.” (Philippians 1:9-11)
Pray that we would know God’s will and be fruitful in our lives and strengthened by intimacy with Him.
“We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better. We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father.” (Colossians 1:9-11)
Pray for unity in the Church and to be filled with supernatural joy, peace, and hope (confidence).
“May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God. I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him.” (Romans 15:5-6, 13)
Pray that the church will overflow in all the gifts of the Spirit, including powerful preaching, healing and prophetic revelation.
“Through him, God has enriched your church in every way—with all of your preaching and all of your knowledge. This confirms that what I told you about Christ is true. Now you have every spiritual gift you need as you eagerly wait for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. (1 Corinthians 1:5-8)
Pray for the release of grace to love one another, and that God will help us to live holy lives.
“Night and day we pray earnestly for you… may the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow… May he, as a result, make your hearts strong, blameless, and holy as you stand before God our Father when our Lord Jesus comes again with all his holy people. Amen”. (1 Thessalonians 3:10-13)
Ask God that we can walk in the fullness of our destiny in God.
We keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ. (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12)
Pray for workers to go and tell people about Jesus.
“So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” (Matthew 9:38)
We pray for an impartation of boldness in speaking the Word, by releasing healing, signs, and wonders.
And now, O Lord… give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word. Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus. After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness. (Acts 4:29-31)
Lord break into the atmosphere with your presence and power. Come and visit the earth and prove who you are to the world. Do more than we would even expect!
“Oh, that you would burst from the heavens and come down [manifest your power]! How the mountains would quake in your presence! …your coming would make the nations tremble. Then your enemies would learn the reason for your fame! When you came down long ago, you did awesome deeds beyond our highest expectations. And oh, how the mountains quaked! For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him!” (Isaiah 64:1-4)
“For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.” (Acts 13:41)
That Jesus will save people and deliver people even while they sleep (give them dreams) and cut off their captivity and sing a song of deliverance over them.
“For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of deliverance (victory). (Psalm 32:7)
I will bless the LORD who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me.” (Psalm 16:7)
“…men will dream dreams” (Acts 2:17)
Bring back the prodigals and set them free. Let them repent of wickedness that they have yielded to, of unbelief they have confessed out of their mouth (I am an atheist, etc), for turning away from God, of loving the world more than God, etc. (Name names of loved ones near and far)
“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?” (Luke 15:4)
“The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
Visit every household in our nation with fire.
“Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them… In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people; your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Upon every person I will pour out my Spirit in those days and they will prophesy.” (Acts 2:1-4, 17-18)
Ask that the Word, through preaching, will increase in influence (effectiveness) in our nation as God releases His power on it and that we would be free to do God’s will in our land. We pray that leaders in our nation who don’t want this to happen will lose influence over our culture and that the evil principalities will also lose their strongholds over our culture and over the minds of men.
“Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you. Pray, too, that we will be rescued from wicked and evil people, for not everyone is a believer. But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one…May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ.” (2 Thessalonians 3:1-5)
