It’s the aftermath of the 2012 Election: You have those who are PUMPED and those who are DEFLATED. People of all shapes & sizes are blowing it up with various rants, comments, complaints, insults, celebrations, etc…
So here is my attempt on a NON-POLITICAL post about POLITICS.
As a Christian leader I want to look at what we CHRISTIANS need to be doing for all our leaders. It’s simple, it’s well known, it’s a given, but it’s highly underrated, and EXTREMELY neglected… it’s called “PRAY“.
Whether you are HAPPY or UPSET by our current leaders, PRAYER is truly the only thing that we can effectively do for them. It’s like when people say “If you don’t VOTE, don’t COMPLAIN”. Well, if you don’t PRAY for them, you definitely can’t COMPLAIN about them either! And if we actually started PRAYING for them the way we are COMMANDED to do, we would probably have a lot LESS to complain about!
So instead of moving to CANADA for the next 4 years, make an appointment with GOD on a daily basis to pray for our LEADERS. Pray for wisdom, Pray for revival, Pray that God will raise up a KING DAVID for the next election. A man that is not chosen because of his political party affiliation, but a man that is chosen because he isn’t willing to let his GOD be mocked!
“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. 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. This is good and pleases God our Savior” 1 Timothy 2:1-3
“The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; he guides it wherever he pleases.” – Proverbs 21:1
“The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous.” – Proverbs 15:29
