The Supreme Court has the last word on interpreting the meaning and application of the highest law in our land, the Constitution of the United States. As such, it is the final arbitrator of questions surrounding the sanctity of life, religious liberty, and so much more. Pray for the President as he and his advisors select his nominee to the fill the seat soon to be vacated by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Pray also for the members of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee who will vet the President’s pick and all U.S. Senators who will vote either to confirm or reject the nominee.
Let us pray,
Dear God who Reigns over all the Earth,
We ask that you would guide the decision-making process of our president, Donald Trump, as he and his advisors select a nominee to our nation’s highest court. We ask that this individual be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove; that he or she will acknowledge You and Your sovereignty over our nation and all the peoples of the earth; that this individual will be highly skilled in the law and understand and execute his or her duties with integrity. We ask, dear Lord, that You would work in the hearts and minds of each member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, that they would ask the right questions and discern the true meaning of the answers given to them by the next nominee to the Court; and that You would move upon the Committee and the entirety of the U.S. Senate to vote according to their consciences and in a way that most benefits the rights given to us by You, our Creator, beginning with Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness. We ask these things in the name of the One who is called “Faithful and True,” the Judge of the living and dead, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
