Wise Counselor, I lift up my local government before You, asking for wisdom in resource management. Guide our leaders to steward the resources You’ve entrusted to our community with diligence and integrity. May their decisions prioritize the well-being of all citizens. Instill a heart of accountability and transparency in their actions. Help them consider the needs of the marginalized and vulnerable. May they seek Your guidance above personal interests, that justice and righteousness may prevail. Grant them discernment in financial matters, leading to responsible and effective use of resources. In Jesus’ name, I pray for wise and righteous governance in our local community. Amen.
