Pray For Our Leaders
1 TIMOTHY 2:1-2 NASB 1 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
Praying for our leaders is not a useless ritual. God would not tell us to do something in His Word, unless it would make a difference.
Sometimes, when bad things happen, people ask why God allowed them to happen. But we should be asking ourselves why we allowed them to happen: by not obeying God and praying.
If believers are praying as we ought, we can expect many bad things and difficult times to be avoided.
Since God told us to pray for our leaders, it is our responsibility.
Of course, we shouldn't limit ourselves to praying only for our leaders. We should pray for all people. But we must not forget to pray for our leaders. And not just when we face difficult times, either.
SAY THIS: Father, I pray that you would give our leaders wisdom, understanding, and insight into all the situations that we face, and the courage to do what is right.
