Scripture for Reflection and Preparation

Ephesians 6:12
“12 For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil
in the heavens.”

Psalm 141:5 “5 let the righteous one strike me— it is [an act of] faithful love; let him
rebuke me—it is oil for my head; let me not refuse it. Even now my prayer is against the evil acts of the wicked.”

James 4:7 “7 Therefore, submit to god. But resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.”

Protection from Spiritual Attack

Every leader’s most dangerous enemies are spiritual in nature.


• Praise God for who He is

• Confess your sinfulness and need for cleansing

• Allow His Spirit to draw you near

• Listen as He speaks to you

Ask God to...

• Prevent Satan from blinding the judgment of our public officials

• Burden the church to pray regularly for our public officials

• Call godly Christians to lives of public service

• Convict public officials of their sin and lead them to faith in Christ

• Help you pray daily for public officials

• Convince public officials about the spiritual impacts of decisions they make

• Protect public officials from the attacks of Satan


• Thank God for hearing you

• Trust that God is at work to accomplish His will
