Praying for our President

You might remember that some time ago I suggested that we join with people that at 8:00 PM Central Standard Time pray for our country. I have set the alarm on my cell phone to so I will remember.

My grandchildren are very excited about it, especially Brianna. Every time she hears the alarm go off, she comes bouncing around to me, saying, “Let’s pray for the President!” And that is what we do.

We pray for our President.
We pray for his wife.
We pray for his girls.
We pray for our Vice-President.
We pray for all our leaders.
We pray for our country.

It’s biblical.

1 Timothy 2:1,2
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone–for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

My greatest concern in praying for our leaders is that they will seek God’s counsel in leading the country. And, above all, that they will turn to God for salvation.

Mark 8:36,37
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?

If you haven’t yet joined in, do it now. If 8:00 PM Central Standard Time is not at good time for you, choose another time. If you live in a country other than the United States, pray for the leaders in your country.

If you don’t agree with your leaders, if they belong to another political party than the one you endorse, it makes no difference. It might be even a bigger reason to pray for them.

So, let’s pray for our President and all those in authority!


About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
