Prayer for Our President

I received the following in an email from the Elijah List this morning. It is a prophetic word that I believe we must take seriously. It's a little lengthy but worth the read.


"The Lord showed me that the intercession for our President and nation has holes in it!"

Whether we as a nation have a Republican, Democrat, or Independent as President--- does not matter. What DOES matter is that our Nation's leader needs to be covered in unquenchable prayer, because no matter if the President is male or female, black, white or any other person of color, and no matter the party affiliation, God loves our nation and the nations of the world.

We should be praying for those in power in ALL nations so they will either continue to serve God or so that they will change and decide to serve God.

The bottom line is that we want leaders throughout our nation and the world to seek God for their own country.

With that in mind, let's read this word by Joni Ames and amp up our prayers!

Those who know me know that I'm not a "political activist" and that I believe we should vote for and elect a person because the Lord says to, and not by political party. So, this is not a political statement. That said, let's go on... The Lord showed me that the wall of intercession around our President and our nation has holes in it. The holes were created by the wagging of the tongues against our President and our nation by those who were supposed to be watching on the walls. Some have been disappointed, thinking the President should have done what they felt he should do by now. Others are ramping up for the next election.

Whatever the reason, those posts became spots where those word curses put a hole in the wall, instead of the wall being guarded. I saw terrorists look through those holes and begin to try to climb through. Then I heard, "Tell My people to repent, break the power of those word curses, and repair those holes--then get back on the wall in the right way."

Whether anyone agrees with the President or current elected officials is not the point. The point is that we, as Christians, are admonished to pray for those in authority. I encourage you to go to the Intercessors For America or President's Prayer Team websites for specific directives, if you have none (You can do a web search to find the exact web addresses).

But let's not leave holes in the wall on our watch! For our own sakes, for the protection of our nation, and our families and friends!

Words have power, and we need to guard them, so that they guard and not curse our nation.
