1 Peter 2:1-3 (GNT)
Rid yourselves, then, of all evil; no more lying or hypocrisy or jealousy or insulting language. Be like newborn babies, always thirsty for the pure spiritual milk, so that by drinking it you may grow up and be saved. As the scripture says, “You have found out for yourselves how kind the Lord is.”
Our Father in heaven,
Indeed, how forceful are upright words!
We humbly beseech You to prepare the hearts of the intercessors in the United States of America for the 2016 elections. Teach them to lay aside all evil, lying, hypocrisy, jealousy, and insulting language. Grant them a hunger for Holy Scripture.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Teach them how to pray for our nation. We trust in Your kindness, O Lord. Amen.
Job 6:25a, Proverbs 18:21
