Praying For Leadership

Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare (Jeremiah 29:7). I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men for kings and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity. This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:1-4).

As Christians we cannot take daily breaks in praying for the leadership in the country you reside. It should be your natural routine to pray for Donald Trump and Mike Pence. That God direct them toward righteous and just decisions. Pray that God move in Congress in the name of Jesus. Keep praying for God to send thousands of angels into the white house and that the laws, executive orders and decrees work in the favor of Christians, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.

You Have A Responsibility To Pray For Others

hand plowAs a Christian you have a responsibility to live holy and pray for others. You have a responsibility to pray for the leaders within your country. There is so much sin and corrupt behavior that each and every Christian should be spending at least an hour a day in prayer for other people. Another hour for your family. God has not left you here on this earth to ignore problems, but to be an example and to cry out to the Lord.

How many times does it say in the Bible the people cried out to the Lord and he heard them and rescued them? How many times did God, step in, in the book of Judges, for the people who asked God for help? Do you not see the criminal activity in our nation? Do you not care that genocidal behavior and sexual immorality is running unchecked and the hearts of many are growing cold?

There is no Scripture that tells the Christian to give up and hide. No seek the Lord while he still may be found. You are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. You can do all things through Jesus Christ. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Greater is he that is within you then he that is within the world. Bad news is your time to shine in prayer. Horrible news stories is your time to bury your words in the bosom of the Word.

If you bury your head in the sand, God will remember. You are not your own and you are bought with a price. That price is the blood of Jesus. Every Christian is supposed to be on the frontline praying for God’s will to be performed on earth. If you can watch hours of television and hide from bad news, you are part of the problem. Be careful that God does not say, I never knew you depart from me you worker of iniquity.

Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” – Luke 9:62

Then He spoke a parable to them that men always ought to pray and not lose heart Luke 18:1

As a believer in Jesus the unanswered prayer is the most discouraging aspect of prayer. Much of our prayer is to fulfill our own selfish lust, but for those prayers offered that have not been tainted with selfish lust we wonder why the delay. So our response is to cease praying about it. Now if God has given you the answer and you do not like it, know that he is superior and his wisdom exceeds that of your own and he knows best. If you are waiting on the Lord, have faith the answer is on the way. The unjust judge in the parable in Luke 18 granted the woman her request because of her continual coming and God has promised to do the same for us, in the midst of him being slow to move. The requirement is having faith in God continually and ceasing not in same prayer request and it shall come to pass.


bolsxyzSometimes your interrupted sleep may be an angel. It may be the prayer prayed or the fast you have committed to. Answer it. Get out of your bed and pray a short prayer of your desire. If your are with your spouse in bed, go downstairs, bathroom, or hallway. You need not take to long. The angel is busy. Pray and then go back to sleep. I assure you, the nudge you experience will be no more. Do not miss these opportunities.
