+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Jeremiah 5:1-2 (NLT)
“Run up and down every street in Jerusalem,” says the Lord . “Look high and low; search throughout the city! If you can find even one just and honest person, I will not destroy the city. But even when they are under oath, saying, ‘As surely as the Lord lives,’ they are still telling lies!”
The corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC has poisoned every branch of our government to the point where the concerns of ordinary people are completely ignored until the next election when politicians need our vote.
You have established a government in America – “of the people, by the people, and for the people” – and Donald Trump has proposed sweeping ethics reform that will return the government to the people.
Lord God: I ask that you will raise up Donald Trump as our next president so that the expression “honest politician” may no longer be an oxymoron and that you will find honest men and women serving in government when you search Washington, DC in the coming years.
Specifically I ask for:
+ Term limits – to replace professional politicians with citizen legislators who have a life and career outside of Washington.
+ Federal employee hiring freeze – to reduce the bloated federal workforce through attrition, with the exception of military, public safety, and public health.
+ Reduction in federal regulations – to stimulate entrepreneurship and economic growth that has been strangled by special interest lobbyists.
+ Lobbyist 5 year-ban – to prevent White House and Congressional officials from exerting undue influence and profiteering after leaving government service.
+ Foreign Lobbyist lifetime ban – to prevent White House officials from representing foreign governments and profiteering after leaving government service.
+ Foreign Lobbyist fundraising ban – to protect the integrity of American elections.
Lord God: You are searching for justice and honesty in our land. May you find them in the Office of the next President of the United States.
+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit – one God forever. Amen.
