Sovereign Lord, This day, with the help of your Holy Spirit, I pray that ______________________ and I will devote our hearts fully to you as our Lord and God, as David did. May we seek to do only what is right in your eyes. I pray that we will not fail to keep any of your commands all the days of our lives. I ask you to make us strong and to use our lives as a source of light to others. I pray for our political leaders at every level. I pray that they will recognize that you have raised them up from the dust and made them leaders of your people. I pray that their hearts will be wholly true to you all their lives, so that they will do only what is right in your eyes, as David did. I pray that they will listen to your word and obey it. We pray that in every election season we will choose as our leaders those who reject what is evil in your sight, leaders whose hearts will be wholly true to you and who will be committed to doing what is right in your eyes. We recognize, Lord, that our security and our peace as a people flow from our obedience and the obedience of our leaders. Purify us from all forms of idolatry and every worthless thing that once again we may be a people who live in accordance with the word of God. In Jesus' name I ask these things, amen.
