'Praying for Muslims: A guide for effective Intercession 2011'
I will be trying to post from this book every week....
Please join in each FRIDAY in INTERCEDING and FASTING(one meal) for Muslims and those on the FRONT LINES reaching out to Muslims.
In November 2008 the people of the United States elected Barak Hussein Obama president. he is the first African-American to hold this position. Also he is the first person of Muslim descent to be president of the modern world's most powerful nation. This is a very difficult job. Since most of us are not involved in politics, the responsibilities that the president of the United States carries are beyond our comprehension as "lay" people! Yet, as Bible-believing Christians we need to uphold him in our prayers. He needs Christ as his savior, Lord and Master. He needs Christ to sustain him, guide him and help him.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land (II Chronicles 7:14, NIV).
God our Father, King of all kings and Lord of all lords, we pray for President Obama this week. Grant him a spiritual visitation from heaven to walk with Christ as a true believer and follow in His steps as a true follower.
Give him grace to read God's Word and feed himself upon it. Give him wisdom to lead America in the path of righteousness and depend on the Lord rather than the arm of flesh (II Chronicles 32:8). Give him direction to initiate and approve laws and policies that bring glory to Christ's name. Help him submit to Your mercy. May he be an instrument of Your will and glory. Protect him from the enemy who manipulates people and drives them away from Jesus.
Bless his wife and daughters. Bring them close to You and protect them from harm, sin and the wiles of the enemy of our souls. Bring his counselors, advisors and aids to worship Christ alone.
At the end of this time in office, may we look back and see that his was a God-fearing, Christ-oriented administration.
You are the God of the impossible. You are the God of the miraculous. Blessed be Your Glorious name from everlasting to everlasting. Amen.
