For members of President Obama’s cabinet to work together to achieve God’s purposes
But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
Mighty God, You are the Creator of the universe. No power or combination of forces can thwart Your plans. In fact, we know You have established those in authority over us, who serve as the leaders of our nation and world, so that Your purposes may be accomplished through them. We may not understand why You do this or how Your will is to be carried out through those You select. We just trust that You do…and we’re grateful.
Heavenly Father, we’re also thankful today for President Obama and the members of the cabinet he appointed for our nation. We intercede, Lord, that You would bring unity into their midst, and that there would be no double-mindedness or division, but rather strong agreement among each person serving on his cabinet. Empower them, O God, to work as one to make Your purposes for them, and the United States, a reality. Make it so, Lord, and we praise You for it, amen.
