“…Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence…” 1 Tim 2:1-2 NKJV, italics and emphasis mine
As Christians, sometimes we are caught in the media frenzy, engulfed in “talk, criticism, blame etc” about our leaders and those in authority (both in government and church). We are quick to point to what and who was or is wrong…yet Paul reminds us that we ought to take our spiritual position in the governance and God’s Kingdom.
I support Christians who take leadership in the government and church, and those who give government pressure by referendums etc. But you can also reign and take charge by praying and interceding. Your prayers will overrule and interject un-peaceful and un-righteous decisions our leaders make or about to make; prayers changes things….
