Pray For Our Leaders - Bible Devotional 18th October 2018

Post by Pete » Thu Oct 18, 2018 9:29 pm

Pray For Our Leaders

1 TIMOTHY 2:1-2 NASB 1 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.

Praying for our leaders is not a useless ritual. God would not tell us to do something in His Word, unless it would make a difference.

Sometimes, when bad things happen, people ask why God allowed them to happen. But we should be asking ourselves why we allowed them to happen: by not obeying God and praying.

If believers are praying as we ought, we can expect many bad things and difficult times to be avoided.

Since God told us to pray for our leaders, it is our responsibility.

Of course, we shouldn't limit ourselves to praying only for our leaders. We should pray for all people. But we must not forget to pray for our leaders. And not just when we face difficult times, either.

SAY THIS: Father, I pray that you would give our leaders wisdom, understanding, and insight into all the situations that we face, and the courage to do what is right.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
