I Timothy 2:1-2 (NLT) I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you make your requests, plead for God’s mercy upon them, and give thanks. 2 Pray this way for kings and all others who are in authority, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity.
In a recent article by the Times-Union about Jacksonville’s new councilmen facing a number of challenges. My thoughts were spawned to think about how needful it is for the believers to cover our leaders in prayer. Not just national, but state and local as well. Despite who we may have voted for or may not have voted for- they are still in positions of authority. We must cover them.They need God’s wisdom, direction, and protection. Hey, if someone is in a position to make decision’s on your behalf woudn’t you want to pray for them? I know I would.
