Instead of despairing about the leaders of your state, pray about them
Posted by pray2christ
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. 3 This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:1-4)
At times in the world there are leaders who are controversial by what they say and do, while others are a pain by what they do not say nor do. This affects they way of life of people in general. Also, a corrupt or proud king or ruler of the people’s can bring them much despair. However, those in Christ Jesus must not fall in the trap of useless anxiety nor foolish works that only disrupt society.
Instead we must pray in faith to the Lord God to improve the leaders of nation and state. We can also pray the unjust rulers are reigned in by the Lord and changed. You deserve the peace but how would you get it for your country if you don’t do what God expects you to?.
The Lord God is capable to granting wisdom, pray for wisdom in such cases. But do not despair. Remember the Lord God can change the course of nations by changing its leaders and circumstances.
20 Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. 21 He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; 22 he reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him. (Daniel 2:20-22)
