Holy God, right now we lift up those who are called to leadership roles during this time of crisis. We pray that you will give them knowledge and wisdom and understanding. Give them a heart for your people. I pray you will instill in them a sense of justice and help them make decisions that have the best interests of your people in mind.
We pray that you will give our leaders discernment and compassion. Help them to be leaders who speak the truth, who put their egos and their personal agendas aside. Help them to be leaders who acknowledge that there is a power at work that is greater than themselves.
O God, we pray that you will give them the ability to transform situations and have a positive influence on outcomes. Help them to have unity of purpose and a wholesome vision for what is good and right and true. May they be leaders who are able to humbly follow where you lead them.
We acknowledge your Sovereignty, O God. We know that you are in control. Help us surrender each day to your holy will. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
