Midweek Morsel: Praying for World Leaders

When praying for our leaders, sometimes we think only of our own nation. We need to expand our vision at times and pray for those leading nations around the world as well.

Many passages of scripture can be turned into prayers for national leaders, but imagine what our world would be like if the following prayer came true. Substitute leaders for kings and make this passage your hope and prayer today:

“May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth. May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.” Psalm 138:4-5

*Which world leaders need our prayers in a special way right now? What are some other ways—or other scripture passages—we should pray for world leaders?
