Pray and Give Thanks for All Men
It is quite easy to complain about who's running (or not running) our government nationally as well as locally.
From what I can tell our vote means little with all the voter fraud going on.
And writing or calling our representatives may make a difference if the politician is not compromised which seems to be the case more often than not.
So what's a person to do?
God is BIG and He sees it all, so none of the goings on in Washington DC nor across the globe are any surprise to him!
Dear heavenly Father, we thank you for each one of our leaders and ask that you bring them to a saving knowledge of Yourself. May they each come to know the Truth of Who you are and Who is Your Son. Touch hearts and bring freedom to those seeking You in sincerity. Please stop this war in Iraq and forgive us of our sins. Bring home our military and guide our lives by Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for loving us, for giving Your only Son. for His death on the cross, and for His resurrection from the grave! We look up to you for Your return, Lord Jesus, and until then may the love of Christ flood our hearts as we pray and love one another obeying Your Word in all things. Lord God, may You be glorified, may Your will be done and may Your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven we ask in Jesus name. Amen!
1 Timothy 2
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
