Jesus, we proclaim that we need You in our nation. We want our government to come under Your authority and be true to the Constitution our founders created.

Many of us see key dates as opportunities for focused prayer in our nation. While we pray everyday for our nation and the issues we are called to cover, dates of significance can provide focal points for heightened prayer. Our friends at True The Vote have put together a brief description of key dates and milestones from now until Inauguration Day. Let’s use it for prayer!


Dec. 23 – Electoral votes must arrive on Capitol Hill: The USPS has nine days to deliver the certified electoral votes from their states to the Senate in Washington, DC.

Pray for protection and chain of custody for the votes that are being delivered. 

Jan. 3 – New Congress sworn in: Members of the House and Senate take the oath of office at noon in the official start of the 117th Congress.

Pray for the new members of Congress by name. (A full list of the 117th Congress can be found here.) Pray that God’s plans and purposes would be fulfilled in our nation and that our elected officials would legislate in accordance with biblical values.

Jan. 6 – Electoral votes counted: Members of the House and Senate meet in the House chamber. Vice President Mike Pence in his role as president of the Senate presides over the session and the electoral votes are read and counted in alphabetical order by two appointees each from the House and Senate. They give their tallies to Vice President Pence, who announces the results. If there are objections, the House and Senate consider them separately to decide how to count those votes. There are 538 electoral votes: one for each congressman and senator plus three for Washington, DC. If no candidate gets 270 votes, the 435 members of the House decide the election. The House has until noon on January 20 to pick the president and each state gets a vote. If they can’t, it becomes the vice president or the next person in the line of presidential succession.

Pray for order and truth in this process when electoral votes are counted. Pray that constitutional principles are followed. Pray that God’s will for our nation would be fulfilled.

Jan. 20 – Inauguration Day: A new president takes the oath of office at noon. In a disputed election, if the House has not chosen a president but the Senate has chosen a vice president, the vice president-elect becomes acting president until the House makes a choice. And if there’s no president-elect and no vice president-elect, the House appoints a president until one is chosen.

Pray for this next term and the president holding office. Pray that if there is any dispute that our nation would be protected in the midst of disagreement.

Share a scripture below that is a guide for how you are praying for these key dates…

  1. Father in heaven, I thank you for President Trump and our Vice President Mike Pence.. I thank you for putting them in office and using them to bless this nation.. I thank you that you spoke through your prophets that President Trump would serve a second term. I thank you that your word endures through all eternity and will not return to you void. Help President Trump to remain strong and not to concede..I pray your continued safety and protection over him and Vice President Pence and their families and also over the team of lawyers, staff and witnesses and their families that are fighting this fraudulent election. Continue to expose all the evil and wickedness that has taken place. I pray that no weapon formed against any of them will prosper and every tongue that rises against them you will condemn. I thank you that you are our vindicator. I thank you Lord Jesus that you came to undo the works of the devil and we declare and decree that the evil works of this fraudulent election are undone and we thank you for it. Help us to continue to walk by faith and not by sight. In Jesus name we pray. Amen

    Amen! 2
  2. I pray Ps 77:14- that God perform HIS miracle on these dates 12-23/Jan 3/ Jan 5-6/20. We need and decree Micah 2:13- a breakthrough for TRUTH and agreement & discernment of it. Also, we lift Isaiah 52:12 to the courts of heaven. O Lord, please BE. LIGHT BE. Go B4 us and be our rear guard in the mighty Name of Jesus.

    Amen! 5
  3. Why do the nations conspire a
    and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up
    and the rulers band together
    against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
    “Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”
    The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
    the Lord scoffs at them.
    He rebukes them in his anger
    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
    “I have installed my king
    on Zion, my holy mountain.”

    Amen! 23
  4. Thank you so much for putting this together. It helps so much to know what to pray for and the important dates and what they mean. I believe we are getting ready to see God move in a miraculous unprecedented way. The scripture I have been praying and standing on is this one: “Jesus looked at them and said, “with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26.

    Amen! 30
  5. Praying God’s will for these individuals and for our beloved country and all its people…from the very youngest infant to the oldest senior citizen. Fill our hearts with love for You, for our country, and for those who serve our country in any capacity. Set guards and watchmen round about us to stand guard and protect our people, our properties and statues and all places of special significance including our church buildings. In Jesus name I pray.

    Amen! 31
  6. Lord we look forward to the day when King Jesus will rule over this world with perfect justice and mercy. Until that time we pray that you will raise up Godly men and women to serve in our government. We pray that in this contentious election time that truth will come out. May our judges and legislators have courage to fight for truth. Please protect those who are coming forward as witnesses. I pray that the people of our nation would be seeking after you. Help us to remember that you are the one we hope in, and not in any person.

    Amen! 31
  7. We pray for our nation several times a day that God will return our nation as it was founded in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. And especially for President Trump and the First Lady. Our Lady and Jesus are with them and will watch and guide over them. God will take care of the evil that is promoted. God will do justice as needed. Also do not forget the run off in Georgia. This to is very important to keep the senate. God Bless Our Nation and our leaders

    Amen! 22
  8. “Unless the Lord builds the house, he labors in vain who builds it.” Lord, let this election process be taken care of quickly. Your kingdom come and your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven! Give everyone involved in the election dispute wisdom and discernment that can only come from You. Be with President Trump and Mike Pence and strengthen them. Give them and their team of lawyers the resolve to see this through!

    Amen! 42
  9. Dear LORD and SAVIOR, we beg you as the King of Kings to deliver Mr. Trump to victory. He is fighting for our lives. We will be the tribe of Israel delivered to the Egyptians if we fail in this endeavor to save ourselves. We like the foolish bridesmaids did not trim our lamps for the coming of the bridegroom. Forgive us our foolishness and help us become “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” AMEN.

    Amen! 43
  10. I Timothy 2:1-2 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Savior.
    Praying for God’s will to be done for a PEACEFUL elector process.

    Amen! 35
  11. God has spoken to many prophets and will not go back on His word: President Trump will have a second term.

    In 2Chronicles 20:20, (Notice the numbers) King Jehosaphat was told to believe the prophets–that the Lord would give them victory over the three massive armies (three nations against one) that were attempting to overthrow tiny Judah. He told him to send the worshippers first. (God inhabits the praises of His people.)They were meeting in the valley of Tekoa, which means, the trumpet is confirmed. While they were praising God, the Lord brought confusion on the enemies camp, so by the time Judah’s army had arrived they found there was not one survivor as they had all killed of one another.

    This is now happening again! Do not fear. Rejoice in God’s great deliverance!

    Amen! 54
    1. Standing in agreement with you, Elaine, Matthew 18:18-19.
      We are contending for our POTUS, America, and the future of our families. God Bless America, we pray. In Jesus Name, Amen.

      Amen! 8
  12. Dear Lord, please forgive our nation for calling a precious little human life a choice. Please forgive those who have made it a law that tells a female its ok to end the life of their baby. Please forgive those Drs. and all involved with the horrific slaughter of these beautiful helpless babies. Forgive us for the celebration of homosexuality as well. Let us remember to love the person you created in Your imagine and pray for their repentance and mental health. We don’t deserve anymore grace or mercy from You but we cry out tho for Your grace and mercy to cover us and that you would honor the prayers and petitions of the REMNANT here in America.


    Amen! 48
  13. 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their evil ways, THEN I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their land..” Are we, those of us who profess His name ready to do this? I pray that we will fall on our faces and confess our lethargy and ask for forgiveness and pray that God will heal our land…beginning with ‘me’ ( and all of us).

    Amen! 40
  14. Thx for keeping us informed. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord”

  15. I’m praying for President Trump, First Lady Melania, and their family.I I’m praying in faith believing that the God has let the down a long rope, that the radicl left socialist will hang themselves as with as they have become over confident in their continued evil 😡😈 schemes. I believe God will bring justice and victory to America. President Trump will again be our President. God Bless ❤️ America.

    Amen! 40
  16. Pbsalm 12 v 5 because the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy I will now arise says the lord I will protect them from those who malign them and his words are flawless amen

    Amen! 36
  17. Father God, YOU WERE before there was. YOU spoke and it was so. Praise YOU, the Ancient of Days. Nothing is too difficult for you. You are all Knowing, Steadfast, and TRUTH.

    Lord, YOUR Ways are always higher and I Thank You for being steadfast in loving us and never leaving us. Despite the evil and darkness that has enveloped us, I am starting to understand that we needed to see this ugly corruption that You are revealing. The breadth and depth of it is beyond our comprehension. But YOU are using it to cleanse our government and bring a revival on this nation.

    FATHER God, you saw the deceit and evil before it started. YOU saw it grow.
    Nothing was hidden from You. Your Perfect timing has revealed it for Your purpose.

    Pres Trump promised he would drain the swamp. His intention was good But it was impossible for one man. Father God Your Perfect plan will drain the swamp for our president and Our nation and for the world.
    Lord As Your WORD promises, You work all things for good for those that love You. Rom 8:28
    Praise God for His Perfect Plan that is being revealed before our eyes. Praise God that we are a part of it.

    Brothers and sisters, we serve a Mighty God. He has appointed President Trump for such a time as this. Let us stay on our knees and pray God’s perfect plan into the natural. We will rise from the ashes of evil to an amazing victory for God, Elohim.

    We will see a Mighty victory for our Pres Trump, for TRUTH and LIGHT for our nation, and for a Mighty revival to rise up for a great harvest.

    We love you and praise you. Lord you are to be glorified forever and ever. HALLELUJAH!

    Amen! 53

        Merry Christmas and many blessings to you.

        Amen! 1
  18. Psa 84:11-12. The Lord God is a sun and should. He gives grace and glory and no goof thing will He withhold from them that walk up rightly. Oh Lord our God how blessed is the man who trusts in Thee. This is for my president Donald J Trump.

    Amen! 32
    1. Thank you Susan.

      Heavenly Father, I pray for my state of Georgia and this upcoming run-off on January 5th. I pray your believers will go to the polls and vote biblically and stand for Christian beliefs and are not swayed by televised untruths. Be with them oh, God as they vote, lead them and guide them. I also pray that no fraudulent action can take place and the voice of your voters prevail.

      Amen! 21
  19. “Let God arise and His enemies be scattered” Psalm 68:1
    It is so devastating to know that such corruption has been taken by some in the Democratic Party in this country.
    May God uncover them all, and may they repent in shame for what they have done to America! I will be 80
    years old in January and I have seen corruption, but nothing of this magnitude. May all those who have crafted this evil plot be exposed for their crimes against this nation which was founded upon God and His principles.
    So many of our men, young and old, have given their lives for our freedom in this country. Freedom to bless and not to curse this nation. Those responsible for this will stand before God Almighty one day, and what will they say then? Again I say, “Let God arise and His enemies be scattered” in America NOW!

    Amen! 58
      1. Thank you so much for your best wishes Maureen.
        And yet even more for standing with me and all those who are believing.
        We may tremble now and then, as they surely did when they heard the sound of those
        hoofbeats of those who wanted to destroy them as they were standing before that Red Sea
        so long ago, but will keep hope and trust in God as our weapons against this warfare,
        “for such a time as this.” Blessings of all that is needed, His hand has provided, Anita

        Amen! 10
    1. Dear Anita,
      This is one of the scriptures God have me in my prayer time.

      Amen! 8
  20. I am praying for justice, this election has been a spiritual battle between light and dark, good and evil. I pray for all evil to be exposed and punished! The Lord will prevail and protect President Trump in the highest office of the United States of America for 4 more years! Amen

    Amen! 50
  21. Lord, I am asking your Holy Spirit to Hoover over and fill the lives of those in control in government on the dates Dec. 23,Jan. 3, Jan. 6, Jan. 20. May Truth, Righteousness, Your Will prevail. Amen

The eyes of the whole world are upon us. Lord, please work through us and guide us on this dark passage. Lord, we are at a crossroads; please show us the way You would have us take, no matter where it leads. In Jesus precious name I pray, Dear Lord, Amen.

    Amen! 43
  23. From Psalm 75: 6 For not from the east nor from the west nor from the south come promotion and lifting up.7 But God is the Judge! He puts down one and lifts up another.

    Father God, Abba, we cry out to You, the Holy and Majestic One at this hour in the United States of America. We cry out to You, the Judge of all men, to put Your chosen person in the office of the President of this country. We are trusting, believing, fighting in the spirit. Come you warring angels; come heavenly host, and fight for us.
    We are looking to You, Oh mighty One, for righteous judgment. Amen.

    Amen! 48
  24. Heavenly Father we release your Angels to protect this process and chain of custody for the votes that are being delivered on Dec 23 and nullify the enemies attempts to interfere in Jesus Name.
    We Pray that God’s plans and purposes would be fulfilled in our nation and that our elected officials would legislate in accordance with biblical values. Release Your Spirit Of Truth on these officials, remove the blinding scales from their eyes and cause their conscious to awaken to Your truth; cause them to walk in your laws and ways by coming into a salvation knowledge of Jesus Christ to all those in house and senate.
    We Pray for order and truth in this process when electoral votes are counted and ask that you position your Angels to oversee this process and speak to the hearts of these individuals influencing them to vote your will to be done here as it is already decreed in the Courts of Heaven and that constitutional principles are followed.

    Lord, You are worthy of all praise. All hope is in You. You have proven over and over how mighty and powerful You are to save. These times are intense and every day the exposure of evil in our midst is difficult to grasp. It causes me to grieve, be angry, and sick in my spirit. The depths of it sometimes overwhelm, and victory seems unreachable. But You, O Lord, are our deliverer and stronghold. Your Living Word is the rock on which we stand and our sword for battle. We fight with faith as our shield. Our hope is anchored in You. You have equipped us to be strong ready to join You in combat. Give Your people courage, strength, endurance, insight, wisdom, discernment, and determination to stay the course with You. Holy Spirit, anoint and guide our prayers, words, and actions to be effective. Refresh and renew our spirits as we co-labor to press on to victory over every scheme and plot of the enemy. You are all our all powerful ruler, and You reign. Satan and all of his demons are defeated foes. Let us not grow weary, but stand firm in our faith.

    Amen! 72
    1. The words of your prayer resonate with me, and I can relate too. We are only human and fall into the trap of negative emotions all too easily. I am as guilty of it as anyone, and I am finding frequent prayer one of the best defenses against it. God bless.

      Amen! 19
  26. But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.
    Isaiah 40:31

    Amen! 68
  27. Joel 2:17b KJV
    Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

    Amen! 94
  28. “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.””
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭31:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Amen! 98
