Pray for our country.
1 Timothy 2: 1-2 (ESV)
Pray for All People
1 “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people. 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.”
We are being encouraged by the Apostle Paul to pray for our country, but thinking about this we should intercede for other countries too. Each day we should take a couple of minutes and make a wall and stand in the gap for our own country and also one of the overseas countries. We must pray for our leaders in political positions. Both you and I want to have peace in our own country, and we want to know that we are safe each day. You know that your prayers impact our lives. I remember when I am honest in humility before God, my prayers answered. By praying for our country, we know that God can change the circumstance for each of us. Be encouraged and stand on God’s word today, pray for our country.
Lord, we bring our country leaders before You today. Lord, You know every political person and what is going on in their hearts. Lord, we ask that You will give them wisdom and insight, and we pray for peace in our country in the Holy Name of Jesus. Amen
