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.


  • Day 6 – Our Confidence in God

    Day 6 – Our Confidence in God

    Dear Lord, we have confidence in You that You hold the heart of the nation’s leaders in Your hand. Therefore, we pray for the president as he faces the enormous challenge of maintaining the world’s largest economy. As part of the president’s effort to meet the needs of the nation in this area, he must carefully choose a Secretary of the Treasury Department to advise and guide him. We pray for the president as he makes this selection and for the appointee as they go before the Senate as part of the confirmation process. May You give the Senate discernment in their decision and may the nominee look to You for wisdom, balance, and a godly perspective on how to best work for the American people. Thank You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

  • Tuesday, January 26

    As the administration awaits the U.S. Senate confirmation vote today on Antony Blinken as nominee for Secretary of State in President Joe Biden’s Cabinet, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has stated that the president will be taking a patient approach to relations with Beijing.

    “What we’ve seen over the last few years is that China’s growing more authoritarian at home and more assertive abroad and Beijing is now challenging our security, prosperity, and values in significant ways that require a new U.S. approach,” Psaki said. “We want to approach this with some strategic patience.”

    In the afternoon, the president will outline his plans for addressing issues related to racial equity and sign various executive orders.

    As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

    • For the Senate as they consider and vote on the president’s nominees.
    • For God to accomplish His purposes through President Biden’s Cabinet.
    • For God to guide the president and for the president to seek God’s direction as he works to address concerns regarding racial equity in the nation.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving

Heavenly Father,

We thank you for Your steadfastness and the grace that You bestow upon our lives. We give thanks for the freedoms we have in this nation to publicly acknowledge Your sovereignty. We are forever grateful for Your blessings upon us and our country.

We pray for Your protection over the United States of America; we pray for wisdom and discernment for our country’s leaders and officials; we pray for strength and safety for our armed forces and first responders; and we pray for mercy and kindness over our families and loved ones.

Bless each one of us today, so that we may show Your love and grace with others and be beacons of light within this world. May we have the opportunities to bless those who are in need with Your everlasting loving care. And may our hearts overflow with gratitude, forgiveness, and kindness.

In Your most Holy Name, Amen.

A Look at Thanksgiving in History

New York
October 3, 1789

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

    Vantage Point Devotional
    • Inborn Instruction

      No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel can avail against the Lord.  – Proverbs 21:30

      Watch a baby learning to walk. They stumble and fall with frequency, but all the while they are building up their natural reflexes as they move from crawling to standing to walking and running. With each bit of progress, their muscles are strengthened and they grow in coordination. They don’t need instruction, because their God-given instructions were born into them. It just takes time, patience, and perseverance until, finally, their steps are secure.

      You can draw easy analogies to spiritual growth. As you spend more time with the Lord, more time in His Word, more time in prayer, your spiritual “muscles” gain strength and you grow more secure in your fellowship with Him. While you are born with God-given instructions – a conscience that has an awareness of God and His call on your li – you must take the steps to exercise it properly. Stand solidly on God’s promises. Walk in faith, supported by prayer. Run to the Lord when you need Him. There is no assurance that you won’t occasionally stumble or fall, but your loving Father God is always there to pick you up and set you on the right road again.

      There is also no guarantee that 2021 will be better than the year that ended only weeks ago. Rocky paths serve to steady your feet the more you hike them. So it is that rough patches in life will strengthen your faith with time, patience, and perseverance. Intercede today for the newcomers to America’s government to find a sure and steady path by finding the Lord’s will for them in their lives, and then to walk boldly in His strength.

      Today’s Verse: Proverbs 21:30

      No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel
          can avail against the Lord.

      Recommended for further reading: Proverbs 3:1-14

      My son, do not forget my teaching,
          but let your heart keep my commandments,
      for length of days and years of life
          and peace they will add to you.
      Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
          bind them around your neck;
          write them on the tablet of your heart.
      So you will find favor and good success
          in the sight of God and man.
      Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
          and do not lean on your own understanding.
      In all your ways acknowledge him,
          and he will make straight your paths.
      Be not wise in your own eyes;
          fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
      It will be healing to your flesh
          and refreshment to your bones.
      Honor the Lord with your wealth
          and with the firstfruits of all your produce;
      10 then your barns will be filled with plenty,
          and your vats will be bursting with wine.
      11 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline
          or be weary of his reproof,
      12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,
          as a father the son in whom he delights.
      13 Blessed is the one who finds wisdom,
          and the one who gets understanding,
      14 for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
          and her profit better than gold.
