Prayer for Presidents’ Day

A sculpture of Abraham Lincoln

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.—Proverbs 21:1 (NKJV)

TODAY ON PRESIDENTS’ Day ask that God direct our President with spiritual wisdom and understanding to lead our nation. Surround him with wise counsel of men and women of integrity. Give him depth and insight into all situations. Ask for His mighty arms to protect our nation, our military and our leaders and hold us safely in His care.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, remind me to keep our president in my prayers not just on Presidents’ Day but throughout the year.
