Interceding for the US Supreme Court
As we pray the following prayer directives and intercede for the US Supreme Court today, this will be an excellent way for everyone to be praying in agreement. There is power in prayers of agreement.
1. Praise God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ Timothy 2:1-4
First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
2. God Establishes Justice and Equity Psalm 99:4
The strength of the King loves justice; You have established equity; You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.
3. Christ is the Head Over All Things Colossians 2:9-10
For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority
4. The Church Carries Kingdom Authority 2 Corinthians 5:20
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
5. Use Kingdom Keys of Authority Matthew 16:19
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.
6. Declare Breakthrough as the Lord God Almighty Arises 2 Samuel 5:20b
The Lord has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters.
Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples, but the Lord will rise upon you
and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
7. Give God Thanks and Praise Colossians 3:16-17
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
8. Not in Fasting and Prayer Alone, but also in Worship Nehemiah 9:1-6
Now on the twenty-fourth day of this month the sons of Israel assembled with fasting, in sackcloth and with dirt upon them. The descendants of Israel separated themselves from all foreigners, and stood and con-fessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers. While they stood in their place, they read from the book of the law of the Lord their God for a fourth of the day; and for another fourth they confessed and worshiped the Lord their God. Now on the Levites’ platform stood Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, She-baniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani and Chenani, and they cried with a loud voice to the Lord their God. Then the Levites, Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashab-neiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah and Petha-hiah, said,
“Arise, bless the Lord your God forever and ever!
O may Your glorious name be blessed
And exalted above all blessing and praise!
You alone are the Lord.
You have made the heavens,
The heaven of heavens with all their host,
The earth and all that is on it,
The seas and all that is in them.
You give life to all of them
And the heavenly host bows down before You.”
9. Fulfill the Call and Intercede Colossian 4:12, 17
Epaphras, who is one of your number, a bondslave of Jesus Christ, sends you his greetings, always la-boring earnestly for you in his prayers, that you may stand perfect and fully assured in all the will of God.
Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.
10. Strive Together in Prayer Romans 15:30
Now I urge you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God for me,
11. Wait in Confidence and Trust 1 John 5:14-15
This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
12. Allow God the Open Their Hearts Through Your Conduct Colossians 4:2-6
Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak. Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.
