HOW DO WE PRAY FOR UNGODLY RULERS?

As believers, we are told to bless those who persecute us, to bless and not curse them (Rom 12:14). We are also cautioned against rejoicing when our enemy falls or being glad when he stumbles lest the Lord be displeased and turn His anger (judgment) away from them (Prov 24:16-22). It is a good reminder that even those we strongly disagree with – even those deemed “wicked” – are in need of prayer. Rather than complaining about them or mocking them over social media, we need to take these cases before the Lord armed with HIS Word which clarifies the judgment He has already rendered concerning their wicked state.

Ours is a spiritual battle against dark forces, not people. Here are some scriptures that can guide our prayers so that GOD can render HIS judgments and verdicts against evil:

“For surely your enemies, Lord, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered.” (Ps 92:9)

  • Thank you, Lord, that You are scattering Your enemies far and wide; causing disruptions in their agendas and communications so as to destroy their union and influence! 

“Whoever is pregnant with evil conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment. Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit they have made. The trouble they cause recoils on them; their violence comes down on their own heads.” (Ps 7:14-16)

  • Father, we agree with Your Word that those who try to build a case against Your righteous decrees will fall into the trap they have built. Thank You for the due penalty upon those who deliberately lay snares for those who stand in the fear of the Lord. May the righteous reap righteous rewards and the unrighteous, the consequences of their sin, so that Your Word would stand and Your righteousness endure.  

“Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned. The Lord will rescue His servants; no one who takes refuge in Him will be condemned.” (Ps 34:21-22)

  • Thank you, Father, for preserving those who love and serve You in faithful obedience. Thank You for dealing with those with evil intent and guarding those who are falsely accused and attacked. May Your presence surround and protect all who call upon Your name in purity of heart.

“Can wicked rulers be allied with You, those who frame injustice by statute? They band together against the life of the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the Lord has become my stronghold, and my God the rock of my refuge. He will bring back on them their iniquity and wipe them out for their wickedness; the Lord our God will wipe them out.” (Ps 94:20-23 ESV)

  • Father, as we stand in the gap concerning the evil perpetuated by legislation that kills our children, we thank you for Your justice which is sure and Your verdict which is right. We stand in confident faith of Your will and purpose to wipe out every law and every statute in this nation that has come against Your decree of life. We thank You for your righteous judgments and pray that all evil would be overturned and Your righteousness firmly established in this land. For Your glory, alone! 

We can pray for mercy on these leaders who oppose God, but we can also stand on God’s Word against the spiritual rulers in high places. The Lord WILL execute justice as we stand on His Word.

  1. Father in Heaven hear our cry and answer you said Jeremiah 33:3 when we call you would answer and show us great things. We repent for all wrongs we as a nation have done and for everytime we turn our back on you. We ask forgiveness for hurting you Father individually and as nation. We ask you to visit those who make decision and laws for our nation and states and cities you are the only one who turn heart of Kings. Turn the hearts back to you Father. Mercy Mercy on us Father In Yeshua Name. Amen 🙏🙏🙏🔥🔥🔥

  2. Thank you for reminding me of the futility of expecting change when my mouth condemns others instead of defeating the enemy with His Word the way He told us.
    Blessings I enjoy your writing

  3. Lord, I pray that we will see what You are trying to tell us by allowing us to be governed by ungodly rulers. Help us, Holy Spirit, to confess our sins, the ones we share with the ungodly ruler and those complicit in his or her rise to rule. Make our relationship with You the lens that reveals what evil rulers are to You. As we pray and repent, grant us freedom from evil government. Help us to take our chastisement, surely long deserved since You are all-merciful, and to make it an occasion to turn back to You. Amen.

  4. I pray for mercy and for them to have a heart of flesh and be saved BUT if they will not, then I pray for God to remove them from their place of influence in whatever way He sees fit.

  5. Our Lord and Savior is slow to anger, but, He will right the wrong of killing babies. God help America see the truth in murdering these little ones. Your wrath will come and it will be swift.

  6. Ungodly rulers are unsaved people; they need witnessing, prayer,
    conviction of their sin and conversion- the same as any other person. The ungodly person matters as much to God as anyone else,
    God is not partial or a respecter of persons. Apply the same dedication and fervency to their salvation as anyone else in your daily life. Do not let political zeal wreck your witness life or you prayer life; forsake bitterness in all it’s forms.

    1. Our Lord and Savior is slow to anger, but, He will right the wrong of killing babies. God help America see the truth in murdering these little ones. Your wrath will come and it will be swift.
