DAY 1 | Pray We Are United During These 30 Days of Prayer

BISHOP KEITH A. BUTLER

SENIOR PASTOR AND PRESIDING BISHOP | WORD OF FAITH | SOUTHFIELD MI



Praise God. Welcome to 30 days of prayer. You know, these 30 days are vitally important to us. I want to lead this off by first of all reading a very well-known Scripture for those of us who pray. Of course, we have people with us today, not only from the headquarters church here in Southfield, Michigan in the USA, but also from around the world and across America joining with us for 30 days of prayer. Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Timothy 2:1-3, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior…”


The area I feel led by the Holy Ghost to focus on is in verse two. This has been a brutal political year. In the United States, you have had elections for our legislatures, for governors, mayors and township officials—all the way down to the local level. You have experienced change in governments in the United Kingdom, in Italy, in Brazil, as well as in other nations—elections have and are happening all over the world. What the Spirit of God has been dealing with me about is that we need to pray for healing, not only the U.S. nation because of the elections, but also for the other nations that have also had these elections like Brazil. Brazil is the fourth largest democracy in the world. They had a brutal election there in October. We need to pray for healing for all these nations because at times of peace, as opposed to strife, is when the gospel is preached the most and people have an opportunity to hear it.


So let’s pray the United States. Let’s pray for Brazil. Let’s pray for Italy and the UK, and for other nations, that peace and quietness and oneness comes once again. Let’s get to praying for these 30 days because the world needs us. And note that this says this prayer is “good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who will have all men to be saved and come unto the knowledge of the truth.”

God bless. Let’s pray.

Heavenly Father, I pray in the name of Jesus Christ that the fulfillment of this very passages of scripture would ring in our hearts and minds that all those in positions of authority throughout our country would like godly lives and that they would deal honest in all that they do. I pray Father that they would see the representation of your word being lived out in your people. Lord, may we all do our part to be the true example of what a peaceful quiet life looks like as we walk out these words in our daily lives. Thank you Lord for hear all our prayers in the name of your holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen, Amen. Hallelujah!

Father God in the Authority of Jesus Christ, we get in agreement with our Bishop and we pray for healing, restoration, and peace in the United States, Brazil, Italy, the UK, and all the nations around the globe. We pray that the Holy Spirit can have His way and politicians hear from God and submit to God’s way of doing things. We pray for future elections and pray that Godly men & women are being raised up now to serve in office and follow your purpose for their lives, in Jesus Name, AMEN! 🙏🏾🙌🏾
