You might remember that some time ago I suggested that we join with people that at 8:00 PM Central Standard Time pray for our country. I have set the alarm on my cell phone to so I will remember.
My grandchildren are very excited about it, especially Brianna. Every time she hears the alarm go off, she comes bouncing around to me, saying, “Let’s pray for the President!” And that is what we do.
We pray for our President.
We pray for his wife.
We pray for his girls.
We pray for our Vice-President.
We pray for all our leaders.
We pray for our country.
1 Timothy 2:1,2
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone–for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
My greatest concern in praying for our leaders is that they will seek God’s counsel in leading the country. And, above all, that they will turn to God for salvation.
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
If you haven’t yet joined in, do it now. If 8:00 PM Central Standard Time is not at good time for you, choose another time. If you live in a country other than the United States, pray for the leaders in your country.
If you don’t agree with your leaders, if they belong to another political party than the one you endorse, it makes no difference. It might be even a bigger reason to pray for them.
So, let’s pray for our President and all those in authority!
