Hope from the Truths of God's Word

a Simple Prayer for Hillary Clinton

prayer hillary clinton and government

Update: Please know that I am not discussing politics in this post. I am relaying a way to pray. Later in the post you will see why I am highlighting Hillary Clinton in this prayer. I am not showing any favor for her as a candidate or suggesting we pray for her and not pray for Donald Trump. This is not about who she is today or her record. It is not about me or you. It’s about God. By all means, pray this prayer and others for all governmental officials and candidates.


Over the last few weeks, the Lord has been bringing my attention to this verse:

Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 1 Timothy 2:2

Three different teachers I greatly respect have pointed out the obvious in this verse: Peaceful living comes as a result of praying for our government. You might read that and feel a bit skeptical. That was my first response. However, if we believe the Word of God, we have to to believe this is true. God lays out a cause and effect very clearly for us.

I’m So Guilty of not praying about governmental issues. To be honest I haven’t prayed because of an underlying thought that my prayers would be pointless. That my friends is evidence of an ugly stronghold called unbelief. Some say that the spirit of unbelief is the spirit that seeks to control North America – a territorial spirit. Do you see evidence of that as well?

Our amazing God sometimes speaks to me in visions. With visions, He communicates something that He wants me to pray about. This is a fascinating thing that I do not often talk about in my writing, because it is usually very personal. And to be honest, I’ve been a little unsure of how you would judge the reality of my hearing from God that way. But I’m over it now. (grin)

Tuesday, during a time of worship with my Bible study sisters, God showed me His great love for Hillary Clinton. I saw a vision of Him bending down toward her, holding her face in His tender hands, and breathing His life into her. Isn’t that just beautiful! What an amazing picture of His love and His power.

God is the Breath of Life!

“The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4

Thus says God the LORD, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and its offspring, Who gives breath to the people on it And spirit to those who walk in it, Isaiah 42:5

‘I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the LORD.'” Ezekiel 37:6

prayer hillary clinton and governmentThis vision came a day after much ado about Hillary’s pneumonia. We can assume that our Jehovah Rapha, the Healer, desires to make her physically well. It is likely that this breathing life into her addresses more than her physical health. Just imagine for a minute what His life-giving, resurrecting breath can accomplish. He can do far more than our imaginations!

I believe this is how God wants us to pray for Hillary Clinton. He has painted a picture of it so that we can simply say, Yes Lord, let it be so! I’m inviting you to pray this with me for Hillary because where two of us agree together on what we ask of God, He promises to do it.

Lord, we ask You to breathe Your life into every part of Hillary Clinton’s mind, body, soul and spirit. Where she is weak, Lord, make her strong. May she be a ready recipient of everything You desire to give her. In Jesus we pray. Amen

Let’s build up our faith together. Let’s choose to believe that nothing is impossible for our God and let’s act on that mustard seed of faith. He promises that mountains will be moved when we do. Our prayers precede the peaceful and quiet lives God desires for us. This peace could mean that we are able to worship freely and share the name of Jesus without hindrance.

This simple prayer is a righteous choice and thankfully our righteousness (a gift from Jesus Christ) also precedes peace and confident living:

And this righteousness will bring peace. Yes, it will bring quietness and confidence forever. Isaiah 32:17

Pray for Your Enemies

Please take a moment to read through Luke 6:27-36 as a reminder of God’s call to pray for our enemies.

“But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. …“Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked. You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate. Luke 6:27-28, 35-36


About Jennifer O. White

I'm a simple wife who has discovered God's amazing gift of prayer. Here at Prayerfully Speaking I share my journey of unwrapping this gift. God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you've ever imaged.

    I think we need to pray this for both of the presidential candidates not just Hillary Clinton.

    1. I wholeheartedly agree, Brenda. I’m simply sharing the vision God gave me specifically for her. This prayer is an excellent one for so many people and especially potential leaders of our nation. I am sad that many people are reading my post and assuming I am promoting Hillary in some way. I am simply promoting prayer for her. Thanks for your comment and your heart to pray for both.

      1. Haelie

        I love your heart. 🙂

  2. Stephanie Weeks

    I wish you would not get political.

    1. Stephanie, thanks for writing and sharing your heart.

      My intentions with this post are not political. I am not highlighting a candidate that I want people to vote for. I am simply relaying the vision God gave me on how to pray for this particular candidate. I am possibly the least political person I know. I am not suggesting we pray for one candidate and not the other.

      My intention with this post is to reveal God’s heart as He revealed it to me. It is a message of the hope God offers everyone who fails to honor Him as Lord in big and small ways. It is a display of His redemptive love for sinners. It is the same love that has welcomed each of us into His family.

      Please hear my heart in this post. I’ve updated it at the beginning and the end. I hope that it is more clear where I stand.

    I feel like I need to defend my wife somewhat regarding this post…..I want to make it clear to all that this, in no way, means we support HRC for President. In fact, we do not feel it’s our place to try to influence anyone on how to vote. There is little doubt that Hillary is an evil, vile woman who has demonstrated many anti-Christian beliefs, and this vision Jennifer had was in regard to her spiritual, as well as physical health. Many readers of Jennifer’s blog have pointed out that we need to pray from Mr. Trump, too, and that is a valid point, as well as others who are aspiring to lead our nation. In regard to Hillary’s recent health issues, I brought up the fact to Jenn that God has often used illness, famine and other disasters to bring people to their knees, to turn from their wicked ways, and to humble themselves before the Him. Will this happen? No one knows, but everyone deserves the chance to turn from their evil ways and live the life the Lord has for them. However, many people throughout history have rejected God’s call, and that is the free will choice He has given all of us. It might have been better to mention both candidates, but hindsight is 20-20, plus you wind up offending supporters of Johnson, Stein, or others. I think the main point is that we are called to pray for all of our leaders, whether we agree with them or not, or whether we support them or not.

    1. Linda Kacz

      Wow I was with your wife up to the point where you described Hilary as an evil, vile woman…dude…where is mercy and grace in that statement??? I love your wife’s posts but that just floored me and took all the love out of her posts in a flash. Praying for God’s grace and mercy on both candidates. Harsh judgements are not our place and this is coming from a woman who is disgusted by the other candidate, God has a purpose and a plan and I am trying hard not to jusdge not my place not yours, that place is reserved for our creator.

    2. Lisa Lewis

      Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.
      Ephesians 4:29
      Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.
      Col 4:6
      But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you[a]—see that you excel in this act of grace also.
      2 Corinthians 8:7

  4. Rebecca Rayfield

    I’m thankful for your words, Jennifer. Because of my opposition to Hillary’s views, in the natural my heart shrinks away from praying for her. But the scriptures you share are true no matter how I may feel. Thank you for sharing this vision and softening my heart…

    1. Thanks for reading and sharing your heart Rebecca. We are all on a journey, learning how to hear from the Lord and how to please Him with our obedience. Thanks for your openness.

  5. Wendy Richardson

    I love that God has sent you a vision of HRC to pray for. Ironic that HRC has fought her own life battles with respect to Bills transgressions. A woman who has been provided with an ability to offer her husband the gift of Forgiveness – the exact thing God sent his only Son to teach us in order to Save our Souls. Regardless of what perceived “evil” HRC has done, knowing how the Holy Spirit often speaks directly to me through you, I’m 100% behind the Vision God has provided you to share with all of us. Thankyou for not shirking that responsibility. Looking forward to boarding the Arc with you someday Jen!! ps I adore the fact that your husband has written in support of you on this issue. Sometimes it’s nice to see how effective all that God is sharing with us through you is also working so wonderfully within your own partnership ❤️

    1. Thank you Wendy! I’m so thankful for David’s support! and your encouragement.

  6. LaShawnda Scroggins

    I normally wouldn’t comment on such topics but I felt compelled to thank you for your obedience. Whether you will vote for HNC or DT, which is your personal choice, you chose to be obedient to God’s vision. This election should really have us a Christians take a look at our hearts. Do you disagree or dislike a person so much that you aren’t willing to pray for them?? That’s a heart issue and you need to re-evaluate yourself because our Father is not pleased. Now, I read the post by your husband and I must admit that he does make his position known by stating that “there’s little doubt of Hillary being an evil, vile woman who have demonstrated many anti-Christian beliefs,” and again-those are his personal beliefs but they can sway people decisions and that’s not the point of this article nor is it the correct forum. I pray for continued blessing upon your family and let’s all remember, there’s only one body with many members and we’re all connected to the Son. God bless?

    1. Thank you for your kind and wise words LaShawnda. We are ALL in need of God’s amazing grace, aren’t we.

  7. Angela Sarah

    Thank you for this. I needed it.

  8. Linda Senior

    Hello, Jennifer, Thank you!

    I have been constantly staying in the ‘gap’, praying for Hillary’s campaign to victory, as the first POTUS. God knew her (as he did all of his creatures), from before the foundation of the world. He fashioned our hearts for His purpose. Hillary has a heart to see the needs met for everyone,at every level. She is dedicated to do all she can to see them fulfill f their God-Given potential. Because she is a woman, mother and grandmother, she brings more than any man could ever bring to the table, not to mention her vast experience up close and personal for the job of President.
    Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ,
    I come into agreement with Jennifer and all the millions of voters praying for a Clinton victory November 8th. Father you, said where two or three are touching as agreeing on any on thing, you would do it. Jesus, you said, anything we would ask of the Father, in your Name, He would do it for us, that the Father would be glorified in the Son.
    You teach us to ‘put me in remembrance of my word.’ Job 22:27, 28, teaches that we can ‘decide’ and ‘decree’ a thing; it would be established unto us, and the Glory of the Lord’s grace would shine upon our way.

    Thank you for that assurance, Father. You teach us in Mark 11: 24, Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe you receive them and you shall have them.

    We believe your word as final authority. You watch over your word to perform it. It will not return unto you void, but will accomplish the thing where unto it has been sent. We believe, as we come in agreement, that we receive our petition before you, on behalf of Hillary Clinton, right now, while we are praying all over these United States, and we decree it done, in Jesus’ Name. We thank you, we give you all the Glory and all the Praise, Amen and Amen!

    1. Linda, my post is not an indication of my vote for Hillary Clinton. It is an invitation to pray for Hillary Clinton the way the Lord revealed to me to pray for her – that He would fill her with the breath of life – His life.

    Decree and Declare Favor of the Lord’ Over Hillary Clinton…..Until He comes again, Secretary Clinton and President-to-be Clinton, we decree and declare from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet that the favor of the Lord will surround you like a shield, in Jesus’ name,”Those who would harm Hillary , says the Lord, it would be better for you to tie a millstone around your neck and throw yourself into the waters; for you will not be able to hide from My justice as I release it on the wings of the fear of the Lord in the days to come.I will be a Terror to terror, a Force against evil, a hindrance to wickedness, a plague against those who would bring harm to her, says the Lord. You will not find a place to hide, a place to cover yourself, in my renaissance of justice, if you harm My her, says the Lord.Donald J Trump

You will run for I will chase you, because I will not rest day nor night, until all of My little ones are safe in this land, says the Lord.My prophets will speak and expose your ways, and My arm of justice will be extended in this land, to take hold of the syndicates, to take hold of the rings, to take hold of the cartels, the traffickers—even the power brokers. Their evil shall not breathe. I will snuff out their funds, I will capture back their wealth, turn the flow of their riches for the poor, the widow and for those in need. I will send you back from whence you came. Watch and see, watch and see.Thus saith the Lord.Hear God word clearly.
