10. Jesus, You have spoiled the principalities and the powers of the devil and we agree that these powers are now bound over our country, our government, our cities, our churches, our ministries and our families. We declare Jesus' Lordship. Col. 2:15 KJV And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. 1 John 3:8 KJV For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

15. Our prayer is that You now have filled the leaders of our country with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; and that they are walking worthy of You Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might according to your glorious power, unto all patience and long suffering with joyfulness.
