Day 6: Prayer
“Nothing of eternal importance ever happens apart from prayer.” – Jerry Falwell, Sr.
When it comes to our civic duty, we have a role to play (Romans 13) and a call to pray. We are expected to be praying for our leaders – the ones we like and the ones we don’t like, the ones we agree with and the ones we don’t agree with. What if we would pray for by name the leaders locally, on a state level, and nationally to have wisdom, discernment, soul care, and refreshment? While it’s important and essential to our form of government to speak up and be involved, there’s nothing greater we can do than kneel down and intercede on their behalf.
Scripture: “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority…” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2a
Am I actively praying for those in authority over me?
Prayer: God, we pray for those in authority over us. We pray for our mayor, city and county leaders, our governor, our representatives and senators, and our President and his team to have wisdom, discernment, soul care, and refreshment. In Jesus name, Amen.
