Our Privilege–Prayer

Our Privilege–Prayer

Since January, I have found it very difficult to pray for our leaders, although I Timothy 2:2 tells us to do so. So I went to the Lord and said, “What do you want me to pray?”

Proverbs 9:10 tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Proverbs 8:13 says that the fear of the Lord is to hate evil.

As I pondered these scriptures and applied them to our current leadership, it became obvious that our leaders have no fear of the Lord. This is not a quaking fear, it’s a respectful and reverent fear. A respecting of who God is and a reverence for His word.  They not only want to keep the killing of God’s creation in abortion clinics going full steam ahead, they also want our tax dollars to pay for abortions here in the U.S. They also want us to pay for the same in Mexico. Therefore, they have no wisdom and no hatred of evil. It is as if they were adrift in the Pacific Ocean without even a paddle.

As Christians, it is our privilege to pray for these leaders that they may gain a reverent fear of the Lord who supplies their next breath and heartbeat–for them to stop resisting the wooing of the Holy Spirit before it’s too late.

Will you join me in praying for those who pridefully resist the Lord’s drawing?

  1. I think since you posted this we have some news from Congress: Nadler, apparently angered by the mention of God, loudly yelled into his microphone, “God’s will is no concern of this Congress.” This was the response of Congressman Jerry Nadler when another Congressman was quoting the Bible and responding to the discussion of the proposed Equality Act. Rep. Gregory Steube (R-FL) began to quote the Bible when speaking against the Democrats’ Equality Act, which would increasingly normalize transgenderism and force the government to fund abortions in the House of Representatives. Within seconds, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) interrupted him, explaining that God has no place in the Democrat-controlled Congress.

    1. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, (Romans 1:21,22).
