Letter to the editor: Here’s how to pray for America

On the first Friday of each month there is a nationwide intercessory prayer teleconference that focuses on specific prayer topics. Over one thousand called in to participate in the session in the January IFA (Intercessors for America) prayer session. It focused on prayers for our nation, for the president-elect, the vice president-elect and the transition team, nominees and appointees in the new administration. For those of us who would like to be guided in specific praying for these topics, here is a summary of what was presented in the session today.

  • Pray that seeds of respect for The Almighty and His authority be sown in the hearts and minds of persons in the new administration
  • Pray for a deliberate pro-life worldview be implemented in this new administration so that ultimately Roe v. Wade decision of 1973   will be repealed, thereby saving the lives of thousands of unborn babies.
  • Pray that Planned Parenthood organization, the nation’s largest abortion provider will be defunded and that ultrasound technology will be available to all moms seeking an abortion
  • Pray for federal judgeships at all levels – federal, state, local – be selected with pro-life views
  • Pray for changes in resistant congregants and uninformed clergy to a biblical worldview
  • Pray for clergy to be bold, courageous preaching the truth in love to their congregation
  • Pray for the annual March For Life in Washington, D.C., January 22 for Sanctity for Human Life. Marchers need safety, protection against opposition and violence and bad weather. Remove the cloud of darkness (John 1:5) over our culture. May the news media be impacted   to see the value of human life
  • Pray for effective strategies that will last for decades to come for pro-life ministry leadership and may God give the leaders a supernatural revelation how to impact our nation, culture and legislation
  • Pray for the Jericho Walk occurring January 14-19 marching around the White House and other government buildings so the deliberations in the buildings will be God glorifying. On the 6th day of the march, join thousands of others with a shout so the walls, barriers will come down and power from On High will come into our federal government nominees and appointees. Pray daily for our leaders at all levels.
  • Pray for the new administration inauguration January 20 at noon for a reverence, honor and peacefulness throughout the service
