It has been a rough twelve months. COVID, fires, civil unrest, a divisive election and more have disrupted our lives in a variety of ways. The recent election especially causes one to wonder what is in store for our country. What do we do? The Bible tells us what to do.
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 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. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4
Pray for our leaders is what we’re instructed to do. It should be something we practice all the time. It doesn’t matter whether the leaders belong to the same political party or whether we agreed with them on every issue, or any issue. The instruction is to pray for our leaders.
With this in mind, you (everybody in our community) are invited to a prayer service for our government leaders from the national scene to the local leaders. We especially invite all government officials, whether elected, appointed or hired. We would love to pray for you.
We do this for the welfare of our leaders and community. Again, an instruction from the Bible: And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare. Jeramiah 29:7
We look for great things to happen! Please join us.
Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
