A Prayer for Vice-President and Mrs. Biden

The next installment in our prayer for America’s leaders and our gratitude for their service, we offer this prayer for outgoing Vice-President Joe Biden and his family.  They too will experience the sudden departure from what has been normal life for the past eight years.  They deserve our prayers.

Why do we pray for our leaders? 

Well, the Bible instructs us that we pray for one another because it honors God and it pleases Him.  Furthermore, James tells us that prayer brings about healing and hope and the prayers of a righteous person are highly effective (James 5:16).  Beyond prayers for everyone, however, the Bible makes a special point of telling us to pray for those in authority, those who rule over us (see verse 2 below).

1 Timothy 2:1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone– 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior.

So here is our prayer for Vice-President and Mrs. Biden:

We praise You, our Father in heaven, for the past eight years of Vice-President Biden’s leadership. You, O LORD, ordained it and we praise You. We ask that You would continue the work of healing the Biden family after the loss of Beau and would grant them a special sense of Your love, comfort, and peace. We thank You for the Vice-President’s devotion to public service and for his modeling of the fine art of friendship. We ask, LORD, that You would be with them, leading them to deeper knowledge of You. May your Holy Spirit guide them to works of charity and goodness so that their blessing to many will be an ongoing pursuit.   Thank You LORD, for Vice-President and Mrs. Biden’s service to this country and bless them in their future journey. Amen.
