100 DAYS OF PRAYER

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2

Every 4 years, beginning on Inauguration Day, we commit to 100 days of prayer over the president’s administration. These first 100 days are often crucial as new Cabinet-level positions are appointed and confirmed, new policies are set into motion, and work alongside the new Congress begins.

TODAY’S PRAYER

  • Day 45 – God Is One

    Day 45 – God Is One

    Heavenly Father, You are the God of unity, relationship, and healing. Your word declares that there was no Greek or Jew and no slave or free. We were all “all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 2:28). We also remember the prayer of Christ in John 17 when He walked the Earth and asked, “that they may be one even as we are one”. Just as in the time of the early church, the issues of racism, anti-Semitism, hate, and other discriminatory matters are still present today. Within the Justice Department, there is an Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Division. That agency is responsible for enforcing federal statutes that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion, and national origin. We pray for all in that division today to seek Your will and guidance as they carry out their responsibilities with kindness, mercy, and a heart towards Your perfect justice and truth. Help us be leaders in loving each person as You do without condition, for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus, Amen.

We thank You for those physicians and others who work at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as they conduct critical science in order to provide the best health information they can to protect our nation. Give them guidance today as they deal with the dangerous pandemic and other diseases in an effort to protect the public health and safety.  Amen.

    Holy God, You are our Defender, our Strong Tower to whom we run. You protect and defend us when we aren’t even aware You are doing so.

You use agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation to stand in harm’s way for us, to defend us against terror, to conduct foreign intelligence, to uphold and enforce the criminal laws of our nation, and to uncover the things hidden in the darkness. Thank You for the leadership they provide to federal, state, municipal, and international agencies.

Help the ones who provide the analyses and execution of the policy options while endeavoring to comply with new policies and directives that come from the president, Congress, or inter-agency representatives.

Help the press secretary as she collects information about actions and events within the administration and shares them with the nation.

  • Day 26 – Praying With Freedom

    Day 26 – Praying With Freedom

    Our Gracious Lord, thank You for setting us free from sin through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.

As we reflect on freedom, we thank You for our many blessings, including being citizens of a nation where we can feel secure as we go about our daily lives. Many around the world seek the same freedoms and look to immigrate to America, just as many of our ancestors did, and we pray for those who serve in the Customs and Border Protection agency as they facilitate and manage that immigration. We thank you for the officers and agents of our Customs and Border Protection who watch over our borders, help support trade, and manage travel and immigration through official ports of entry. Please be with them and keep them safe whether on land, air, or in maritime patrols. Give them wisdom as they deal with the complexities of immigration. We ask in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.

  • Day 27 – God’s Handiwork

    Day 27 – God’s Handiwork

    Heavenly Father, You gifted us such a wonderous world to call our home. The Earth is Your handiwork and You tasked us with the stewardship of its care. As our nation evaluates how to best care for the planet, the president created the new role of a climate envoy. Give this envoy wisdom, accurate scientific information, and discernment as he confronts concerns related to climate issues. Guide him in his decisions about fossil fuel use and alternative energy sources. Lead him as he works to address natural disasters. Our trust is in You to be the Controller of the times and the seasons. An old song says You have the whole world in Your hands. There are no better Hands! Thank You, Father, Amen.

  • Day 28 – Heavens Declare God’s Glory

    Day 28 – Heavens Declare God’s Glory

    God Who Rules the Universe, You created us as Earth-bound individuals, but You also instilled within the hearts and minds of many the desire to explore the unknown. We gaze into night skies and wonder what lies beyond our realm and through our government’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration, explorations of space have begun. An international space station is maintained, astronauts have walked on the moon, independent rocket builders are partnering in setting satellites into orbit, and there are even plans for humans to set foot on Mars. Thank You for the many engineers whose efforts bring these ideas to reality. Guide and direct those who lead in the pursuit of exploring Your creation. Reveal Your righteousness and glory evermore. Provide safety to those who explore. Keep them in Your care. Amen.

    Day 29 – God Our Defender

    Heavenly Father, thank You for being our defender and our Savior. As we still live on this earth, we know that sin still causes many to be at odds with You and that it also drives conflict or tension with each another. In the midst of this conflict, there are those around the world that would wish to do our nation harm. We are grateful that a civilian foreign intelligence service within the federal government is tasked with gathering, processing, and analyzing national security information from around the world in order to better protect us. We thank You that these security people are in place. Watch over the security of our nation. We pray for Your will for America. Amen.

    Day 30 – In the Shelter of the Most High

They are charged with protecting our political leaders and their families. Thank You for their alertness to danger and their abilities to respond quickly with no concern for their own lives. Even as they protect our leaders, please give them Your protection, keeping them in Your shadow and shelter. Thank You in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

  • Day 31 – Lord of Nations

    Day 31 – Lord of Nations

    Heavenly Father and Lord of All, our nation has been blessed by the heritage of the numbers of “first people” groups who have called this land their home for long periods of time. At the same time, as a nation, we have not always treated them properly. We pray today for the people within the Bureau of Indian Affairs, as they implement federal laws and policies related to American Indians and Alaska Natives, and the lands held in trust by the government for the numerous tribes. Give them wisdom and grace and a particular sensitivity to the needs of those people groups, for Your love extends to all as a reminder that ours should also.

  • Day 32 – Praying for World Peace

    Day 32 – Praying for World Peace

    Dear God, we thank you that our nation has good relationships with many other countries around the Earth. Our State Department ambassadors keep those relationships working.

As the leader of the delegation of the United States Mission to the United Nations, we ask for Your guidance for the person that holds that seat as they work towards advancing U.S. interests, promoting and defending universal values and values established by You, and addressing pressing global challenges to peace and security.

  • Day 33 – Give To God What Is His

    Day 33 – Give To God What Is His

    Dear Lord, many of us are already in the midst of preparing and filing taxes. We remember your words in Matthew 22:21, “Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” While we don’t always agree with or understand the amount or use of our taxes, we thank You for Your hand on our governing authorities. We pray for the Internal Revenue Service and their Administrator, charged with receiving or refunding our tax payments and watching over taxpayer issues. Theirs is often a thankless job within government, and in the last year and now, they are also having to deliver stimulus checks or cash-cards as the coronavirus pandemic continues. Give them extra strength to endure long hours. Give them sensitivity and compassion towards the taxpayers. Go before each citizen and agent as they work to settle any issues and disputes. Thank You, in Jesus Name.

  • Day 34 – God Gives Understanding

    Day 34 – God Gives Understanding

    Heavenly Father, thank you for the men and women to whom You have given great scientific minds, especially those in the ever-changing and rapidly growing area of technology. Thank You for giving humanity the tools and intelligence to understand Your creation through biology, chemistry, physics, and technology. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy is being advanced to a Cabinet-level under the new administration, and Eric Lander has been selected to lead it. Thank you for this mathematician and geneticist who helped map the human genome. Guide him through the challenges of working in government and direct him on the decisions that will be made by him and his team.

  • Day 35 – God Cares for You

    Day 35 – God Cares for You

    Dear God, the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare have been called upon during this pandemic to go above and beyond what they normally must do. We pray for the person who will fill the role of heading this agency. They will need Your provision, as will the bureaucrats working with them. It is a heavy load as the agency oversees government health insurance programs that cover more than 1 out of 3 Americans and is a linchpin for the entire health care system. Guide their decision-making, we pray. Amen.

  • Day 36 – Calling on God in Times of Need

    Day 36 – Calling on God in Times of Need

    Heavenly Father, our hearts have been heavy recently as we have watched a vast winter storm create problems in over a third of our country. At times like these, our Federal Emergency Management Agency steps in with assistance, including funding, to help the American people deal with these disasters. Give FEMA officials the knowledge they need to be quick and accurate in their response. Help us, as Your people, to do our part in lending a helping hand when we are able to do so. May our efforts be to Your glory, Amen

  • Day 37 – God Who Established Borders

    Day 37 – God Who Established Borders

    Our Father, You are the ruler of Heaven and Earth. From You divine wisdom, You gave us governments, You lifted up nations, and You defined borders (Acts 17:26). In our nation, You have seen fit that the authority of managing and maintaining the security of these borders rests on those in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). We pray for all of the leaders in this agency as they adjust and adapt to any and all new federal policies and directions. We pray for all of the men and women who wear the ICE uniform and serve in even if the smallest capacity. Help the agency to focus on doing what is right and to do so in their effort to protect the American public.

  • Day 38 – God Is Our Refuge

    Day 38 – God Is Our Refuge

    Dear Lord, thank You for being our refuge and our safe harbor in the modern age just as you were in ancient times. As we ponder the gift of modern transportation methods, we thank You for the ability by which we can circumnavigate the globe in mere hours. What took once weeks, months, and years of travel, can now be done in a single day. The Transportation Security Administration is at the forefront of ensuring our safety as we travel. The pandemic has reshaped travel and created many logistical problems. In addition to securing the safety of the traveling public, the TSA must now enforce rules to keep individuals healthy and safe from the spread of disease at airports, bus and train stations, and on all forms of public transportation. Help them as they adapt and adjust to the ever-changing needs of the American people. Encourage them in the face of discouraging moments. Keep them safe as You do with those who are first responders. Thank You, Amen.

  • Day 39 – God of Order

    Day 39 – God of Order

    Heavenly Father, thank You for giving us order and structure. Thank you for giving us laws and ethics. In a world where not all follow those rules, Congress established the Federal Trade Commission to protect consumers by regulating unfair, deceptive, or fraudulent practices. We pray for the commissioners of this agency and their enforcement mission. We pray also for those who are charged with heading investigations. Today, we ask Your guidance and direction for the FTC, for the protection and pursuit of truth and righteousness in the affairs of business. We praise You for Your watchfulness over this nation and for Your light that makes all things known. Amen.

  • Day 40 – God’s Gift of Creation

    Day 40 – God’s Gift of Creation

    Our Glorious Lord, thank You for the beauty of Your creation. Thank You that You have given some of our early leaders the vision to preserve significant parts of our country and to set them aside for our enjoyment. We now have more than 400 national parks in the U.S. Each has rangers and staff to manage and maintain them. Because all these services are managed through government oversight, we pray for all who are a part of the National Park Service who continue to assist in maintaining these recreational spaces and preserving their historic nature. Bless their work and give them joy, we pray in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

  • Day 41 – Praying for Instruction

    Day 41 – Praying for Instruction

    Heavenly Father, we praise You that You are the Master and the Teacher. You show us Your ways and instruct us in Your will. When Jesus walked the earth, He showed a special concern and love for children. In the U.S. Department of Education, there is an Office of Special Education Programs that deals with infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities. It exists to support them with technical assistance, parent training, and doing all it can to help each child achieve his or her highest potential. We pray that Your hand will be on the leaders of this department as they help shape the educational policies and programs. We ask that You be at work as they also plan and implement these things. You have made each child special in his or her own way. Give them grace today, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

  • Day 42 – God of Relationship

    Day 42 – God of Relationship

    Our Father, thank You for giving us many ways to communicate and have relationships with each other, even when two people are on the opposite ends of the country. One of the oldest methods in American is to send letters, packages, and other mail to each other through the U.S. Postal Service. This agency is led by a Board of Governors, with the Postmaster General as the head. Guide him in making any and all necessary decisions that impact the Post Office, its services, and how it functions as a resource for all Americans. Thank You for being a gentle overseer to us all, Amen.

  • Day 43 – God Our Healer

    Day 43 – God Our Healer

    God our Healer, thank You for giving understanding and special knowledge to those who serve in the medical field. Thank You for those who perform their services with a loving and patient heart. In these days of the coronavirus, it has been especially hard for government agencies like the National Institutes of Health. They have been at the forefront with information and guidance. We pray for Dr. Anthony Fauci, who heads up the Institute’s department of immunology, and ask that You shower him with Your wisdom and guide him to understand Your plan for healing this nation’s s health—physical, mental, and spiritual.

  • Day 44 – God Our Supplier

    Day 44 – God Our Supplier

    Most Holy God, You richly supply us and meet all our needs. It’s as You say in Philippians 4:19, You do so “according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Thank You for a nation with an economy that enables us to live a blessed life. Over the past twelve months, though, due to the coronavirus, the economy has taken a hit. Among the agencies charged by Congress with providing the nation with a safer more flexible and more stable monetary and financial system is the Federal Reserve. Be with their Board as they direct the central banking system. Give them the information they need and enough of Your plans for America’s future that they can effectively guide the operation of the nation’s economy while serving the public interest. Thank You that You care about such things as this. Amen.

  • Day 45 – God Is One

    Day 45 – God Is One

    Heavenly Father, You are the God of unity, relationship, and healing. Your word declares that there was no Greek or Jew and no slave or free. We were all “all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 2:28). We also remember the prayer of Christ in John 17 when He walked the Earth and asked, “that they may be one even as we are one”. Just as in the time of the early church, the issues of racism, anti-Semitism, hate, and other discriminatory matters are still present today. Within the Justice Department, there is an Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Division. That agency is responsible for enforcing federal statutes that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion, and national origin. We pray for all in that division today to seek Your will and guidance as they carry out their responsibilities with kindness, mercy, and a heart towards Your perfect justice and truth. Help us be leaders in loving each person as You do without condition, for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus, Amen.

INVITE OTHERS TO PRAY WITH YOU
