House of Representatives Prayer
~ ~ ~
As the new congress is opening,
I present to you
a prayer for us to pray for them.
This prayer was given to open the session of the
U.S. House of Representatives on July 28, 2017
by Pastor Scott Poling
Harvest New Beginnings Church, Oswego, IL
I urge you to consider praying
for our new
House of Representatives
AND our new Senate.
(Scroll down for the video of the prayer.)
I pray for these who serve this nation, for they ultimately serve You.
There is no authority except from God, and these gathered here, whether they realize it or not, are Your ministers for the good of the people of the United States of America.
I pray for the men and women in this room and those who will soon fill these seats. Help them to acknowledge You, come to faith in You, look to You and live in the fear of God and not the fear of men.
Embolden them to make good godly decisions that You deem right, based on the authority of Your Holy, inspired Word.
especially pray for the many representatives who are Your true children by
faith in Jesus Christ. Grant them Your
favor and blessing and
raise them up.
Give them supernatural strength for the work
that they do.
Give them great wisdom
for the decisions they make and the direction in which they lead this nation.
God, purify their motives,
protect them from pride,
help them bow lest they break and
may they never forget your promise
“He who honors Me I will honor”.
In Jesus’ name, the only name by which we have access to heaven, I pray.
