Pray For Our President
George Washington, our first President, added the prayer, “So help me God” to his inauguration oath, then he reverently stooped and kissed the Bible on which had been used in the oath.
John Adams, our second President, revealed that he personally studied the Scriptures every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings.
Andrew Jackson, our seventh President, referred to the Bible as “the rock on which our Republic rests.”
Abraham Lincoln, our sixteenth President, called the Word “the best gift God has ever given to man…But for it we could not know right from wrong.”
Woodrow Wilson, our twenty-eighth President, once stated: “The Bible is the Word of life. I beg that you will read it and find this out for yourself. When you have read the Bible you will know it is the Word of God, because you will have found in it the key to your own hear, your own happiness, and your own duty.”
Ronald Regan, our fortieth President, wrote: “Inside the Bible’s pages lie all the answers to all the problems man has ever known. I hope Americans will read and study the Bible… It is my firm belief that the enduring values presented in its pages have a great meaning for each of us and for our nation.”
TAKE TIME TODAY to pray for our President. Pray that God would give him a great love for the Word of God. Pray that the Holy Spirit will speak in a way that convicts, inspires, encourages, and challenges his heart. Pray that reading of the Word would bring him to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Don’t take for granted that our President is a man of faith. Pray that God will move them to a faith that is genuine, that is absolutely essential, and one that transcends their character.
