8 Hopeful Prayers For Court

Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens. Let them judge the people at all times, and let it be that every major dispute they will bring to you, but every minor dispute they themselves will judge. So it will be easier for you, and they will bear the burden with you.

Exodus 18:21-22

From the text, we gather that Jethro, Moses’s father in law advised him to establish a court that would help him govern the people through the will of God. He knew that it would be easier to govern the people if he gave them all responsibilities.

The leaders would however be men who feared God, men of truth, and men who hated dishonest gains. In this process of selection, Moses would choose people who were selfless and were willing to be truthful and just in judgment.

The court is not something that is foreign to Christians. In our lives on earth, they may be times when you will be dragged to court or go to court to settle a matter between you and another party. When this happens to you do not be afraid.

As Christians, the Lord expects us to cooperate with the laws of our land. He does not expect us to be rebellious but rather gentle and obedient. We should go to court with a clean conscience and humble and truthful hearts.

Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me,” says the Lord of hosts.

Malachi 3:5

The Lord has promised to be a witness against those who oppress and twist justice to suit them. There are people who have been able to maneuver themselves into places of power through earthly influences.

Some of these men do not possess the qualities that are stated by Jethro but still have to power to judge God’s people. When you find yourself against these leaders who have not been chosen by God, do not be afraid for the Lord will be with you in judgment.

He will be a swift witness in your favor against people who try to bend the law to favor them and oppress the less privileged.

Prayer for justice in court

If you have been wrongfully accused and arrested let the Good Lord be your companion at all times. God has the power to release his children from prison as we saw with Paul and Silas. It is never too late with the Lord because he is all-knowing and all-powerful.

Pray to the Lord to stay with you in your times of distress and doubt. Know in your heart that the moment you opened your mouth to pray he already freed you. Be joyful in your heart because he has won it for you already and go to court in faith and belief of justice and victory. Put him to the test and you will not regret it.

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

Isaiah 54:17. 11

When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.

Luke 12:11-12
