Prayers and Promises: 1 Timothy 2:1-2

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—  for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

I have a hard time remembering to pray for our current leadership in our country.  Sometimes, I forget that these leaders are in place and God is using them for his Plan while they are in place.   I would request that we all take the time to pray for our leaders in our country.  Also take the time to pray for those who are running for office in November.   Pray that America would make wise choices in it’s selection of leaders in November.  We should all seek God’s wisdom, and make sure that you do register to vote if you aren’t already registered.  Your vote does matter.  Seek God’s wisdom if you do not know who to choose.  God has a plan for us no matter who our leaders are and he expects us to respect them and pray for them.   Lord, help us to continue to do this at all times.
