Prayer For Bush Administration

Father God, we come before you in Jesus Christ’s name and on the basis of His shed blood on behalf of our president, George W. Bush, his wife Laura and their children Barbara and Jenna.

We ask You to show them great and mighty things and teach them in the way of wisdom. For as Your word was to David, we ask it be given to President Bush. The Spirit of the Lord spoke in and by me, and His word was upon my tongue. The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me, When one rules over men righteously, ruling in the fear of God, He dawns on them like the morning light, when the sun rises on a cloudless morning, when the tender grass springs out of the earth, through clear shining after rain. Truly, does not my house stand so with God? For He has made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure. For will He not cause to prosper all my help and my desire? We ask that the path of Mr. Bush would be uncompromisingly just and righteous, like the light of dawn, that shines more and more, brighter and clearer-until it reaches its full strength and glory in the perfect day.

We thank You Lord for George W. Bush, his cabinet, for restoration, for life, Godliness and dignity to Your church. Give us grace to pray for Mr. Bush, and for all in authority.

We ask that under this administration the bands of wickedness would be loosed in our nation, oppressed people would be freed, the hungry would be fed, the poor in our nation cared for, and the gospel of Jesus Christ would be shared.

We ask that You would guide George W. and Laura continually, and make them like a spring of water whose waters fail not.

We ask that they be ones who would build the old waste places: raise up the foundations of many generations; and be called repairers of the breach, restorers of paths to dwell in.

We pray Mr. Bush and his administration will work for an America that blesses Israel knowing that Jerusalem is Your throne and those nations who bless and pray for her will prosper.

We ask that no weapon that is formed against Mr. Bush and his family would prosper, and every tongue that shall rise up against them in judgment You would condemn. Be the Bush family’s sun and shield. May You give grace and glory: withhold no good thing from them as they walk uprightly.

Because You have set Your love upon George W. and Laura Bush, therefore will You deliver them: You will set them on high, because they have known Your name. They shall call upon You, and You will answer them; You will be with them in trouble: You will deliver them, and honor them. With long life will You satisfy them and You will show them Your salvation.
