Command: Pray for Those In Authority
1-23-17, Franklin Graham [Excerpt] -- We should be praying for our president and our leaders every day; that they would be surrounded by godly counsel and, most important, that our leadership would personally know God and the salvation found through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
"I exhort first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;"
1 Timothy 2:1-3
Understand that the Apostle Paul wrote this instruction to his protégé Timothy at a time when the vile emperor Nero was at the helm of the vast Roman Empire. Christians were viciously persecuted, clothed in wild animal skins and put in the arena before hungry lions, even covered red in pitch and used as human lanterns to light the streets of Rome.
"The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord,
as the rivers of water: He turneth it
whithersoever He will." Proverbs 21:1
Neither kings, nor presidents, nor mayors, nor
members of Congress are the ultimate authority—God is.
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, ‘Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.’ He who sits in the heavens shall laugh …” Psalm 2:2-4
Can our diligent, heartfelt prayers make a difference for the future?
