We have fallen into a dark time where hatred is for some reason all-consuming, and that is where the power of prayer comes into play.

Most recently, President Trump named Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel, which caused an outpour of rioting and conflict throughout the city. We must continue to pray for peace in that region of the world, and pray for President Trump as he navigates the situation.

President Trump has done everything in his power thus far to stop and prevent illegal immigration in the United States, including the enforcement of travel bans as well as developing a border wall for the Mexican border of the country. We must continue to pray that God will help guide our President to make these important calls, and these decisions will help to increase job creation in our country as well.

Power Within The Government

As we have often seen, and continue to see, in our government, many authoritative political figures and others who are associated find a significant conflict when it comes to power. We must pray that God will instill in their hearts an understanding and a cease for the need to have this “all-consuming” power that they sometimes crave in the political system.

Political Scandal

We must pray that God will rid these political figures, and others as well, of these horrifying ideas that corrupt their minds and their hearts, and that God will give them the guidance to follow the right path.

In recent months, the Trump administration has reversed the Obama administration policies which regarded religious freedom throughout the country. This reversal allows for more freedom for individuals to practice the religions they believe in, and we can only pray that this freedom will continue as the presidency goes on.
