Dear Heavenly Father,We come before You today asking that you bestow Your wisdom and good judgment upon our local county officials.  May they exercise common sense in their decision-making and keep the people of their county in mind at every turn.  If there are those in office who do not know You as their personal Lord and Savior, we pray that they would come to a saving knowledge of Christ Jesus, Your only begotten Son.  May America begin to turn back to You, starting with our county officials.  By name we pray for Your blessing on our County Commissioners:  Dave Unruh, Tim Norton, Karl Peterjohn, Richard Ranzau and Jim Howell.  We ask this in the Name of Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen.


Dear Heavenly Father, We pray that You would guide and direct our Wichita City officials in their capacities as part of our local government.  We pray for Mayor Jeff Longwell and Council members Lavonta Williams, Pete Meitzer, James Clendenin, Jeff Blubaugh, Bryan Frye and Janet Miller.  May Your blessing be upon them as they discuss and vote on vital issues here in Wichita.  We lift USD 259’s Board of Education to You today and ask that You will guide the decisions made there.  We pray for each district member by name:  Betty Arnold, Joy Eakins, Barbara Fuller, Jeff Davis, Mike Rodee, Lynn Rogers and Sheril Logan.  Children are the future of our city, our state and our country.  Please help the BOE to make wise and common sense decisions regarding their education.  In Jesus’ Name we pray, Amen.


Dear Heavenly Father, We humbly ask that You keep Your mighty hand on our state government.  Bless the Kansas executive branch, led by the Kansas Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals and the Kansas District Courts.  May their decisions reflect the values learned from Your Holy Word.  As they uphold the rights of individuals and businesses, leaning on the Kansas Constitution, may they also take into consideration Your will in every case.  We pray today for Governor Sam Brownback.  Lord please help him to see the best decisions to make are the ones that uplift the people of Kansas and not the ones that burden them down even more.  We pray for Lieutenant Governor Jeff Colyer as he performs his duties.  We pray You will guide Secretary of State Kris Kobach in doing his job.  Please be with Attorney General Derek Schmidt as he continues to work toward a gang-free Kansas.  Bless his efforts to keep our state safe.  We pray today for Insurance Commissioner Ken Selzer and State Treasurer Ron Estes.  Father, please bless the economy of Kansas.  I pray that every person who needs a job will find one here in the great state of Kansas.  I pray for our educational system and that common core, which is not so common and makes no sense, will soon be a thing of the past that we can look back on and laugh.  Help all the people of Kansas to do their part to conserve resources so that the state as a whole can preserve our resources.  Father, what our leaders do, what they say, how they vote, it all matters and affects all of us.  Please lead them to do the best things for Kansas.  If any do not know You as their personal Lord and Savior, we pray that they come to a saving knowledge of Christ Jesus.  Thank You for all the many blessings You have bestowed upon our state.  Our people trust in You and love You.  We ask all these things in the matchless Name of Christ Jesus, Amen.
