“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord; he directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases.”
“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
I Timothy 2:1-4
The King, as mentioned in the Book of Proverbs, as well as the kings in 1 Timothy refers to the heads of nations and kingdoms, naturally, including presidents. The above-stated Scriptures are simple, direct and truly a source of great motivation for all God’s people to pray for the leaders and those in authority, regardless of differences in religious or political party affiliations.
The Presidential Intercessors Network (PIN) is specifically envisioned to pray for our country’s current President. PIN recognizes the need to intercede for the President for God’s intervention, His wisdom and favor to increase upon his life. We need to pray that he will be surrounded and influenced by godly people and advisers who have the passion and heart for the welfare of our nation.
We will pray not only for the President’s government programs, but also for matters of health, well-being, divine protection, family, and every aspect of the President's life. This is the primary purpose of this ministry.
PIN is also charged to pray for the Vice President, the Cabinet Members, the officials of the three Branches of Government, the Executive, the Legislative and the Judiciary, and other incumbent national and local government officials nationwide.
Our PIN mission commenced in 2004 for then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (2004-2010), followed by Benigno C. Aquino (2010-2016) and now His Excellency Rodrigo R. Duterte (2016-2022). PIN continues to pray for all living past presidents and even the aspiring future presidents.
And what is in it for us? The Bible in 1 Timothy 2:1-4 promises that, if we do this, we will enjoy peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. We will see God’s hand directing the course of our nation. We will then be known as a righteous nation, bearing in mind that “righteousness exalts a nation”! As a consequence, we will see the prophecies about prosperity in the land come to pass. The future of our children will be secured. The blessings will transcend to the whole nation and throughout generations.
Therefore, we enjoin you all not to miss this opportunity to be part of what God is going to do by praying for the President and all other government officials of our nation. To GOD be the glory!
