7 Strong Prayers for City Leaders

Ezekiel 33:7
Heavenly Father, we pray for city leaders as You give them responsibility to watch and guide over the nations they serve. Lord, just as you told prophet Ezekiel, that You have made him watchmen for the people of Israel; I pray for city leaders, that they will be godly watchmen and watchwomen over Your creation. We pray that just as You renewed Ezekiel’s call as watchman, I pray that you will renew the call for every city leader, Amen.

Colossians 3:2
Dear Father, I pray against city leaders who are driven by satanic kingdoms and principles in Jesus Name. Lord, please transform their thinking and destroy their waywardness by the blood of Jesus. Help our city leaders to put on the mind of Christ, because Your Word says, to set Your mind on things above and not on the things of the earth. So Father, help every city leader to set their mind on what You have called them to do, according to Your will and purpose, Amen.

Joshua 1: 7
Dear Lord, we pray for supernatural strength for our city leaders. Father we pray that You raise them up like Joshua, so that they can be leaders of great courage. Lord, help them not to fear the decisions they have to make because You Lord are with them. We ask that You will help them to be strong and of good courage and that they will observe to do according to all You have commanded them. Father we thank You, Amen.

Proverbs 2:6, 2 Chronicles 20:12
Heavenly Father, we bless You because You are the Lord over our cities. We pray for every city leader, that even though they may not know what to do in tough times, their eyes will be fixed on You. Lord, grant them wisdom and help them to remember that it is You who gives wisdom because from Your mouth comes knowledge and understanding. We thank You Lord, for granting wisdom for our city leaders, Amen.

2 Corinthians 12: 9-10
Dear God, we pray for your grace over our city leaders. We recognize that Your grace is sufficient to keep them. We ask Father that through Your power they will be made perfect in their weakness. So Lord let Your divine power rest on city leaders in Jesus Name. Even when they are insulted, criticized and persecuted, it is in their weakness, then they are strong; thank You Lord, Amen.

Galatians 6:9, Psalm 37:4
Heavenly Father, I bless Your Name for our city leaders. I pray that they will not grow weary of doing good, but in due season they will reap all the things they strive for because Your Word says that You will give us the desires of our hearts. Lord grant them their desires for the city You have made them ruler over and I pray that You will help them to not give up, Amen.

Deuteronomy 28:1-3
Dear Lord, Your Word says that if we are faithful in obeying the voice of the Lord, then the Lord Our God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. Therefore, I pray that every city leader will obey Your voice and these blessing shall come upon them and overtake them in Jesus Name. I declare that blessed shall every leader be in the city they serve. This is the prayer of my heart, Amen.
