Prayer for September 16: Please pray with me. God of the nations, today we ask for blessings for all nations. We pray that you would give wisdom and discernment for all leaders of nations. That they would work towards the promotion of peace, look out for the needs of those on the margins of society, and empower the people under their rule to live into their full potential. We also pray that we would be persistent in praying for our elected officials in our own countries, regardless of how we feel about them. Help us to see that when we pray for someone, we start to see them differently. Amen.
