2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. — 1 Timothy 2:2 NLT
In several passages of scripture we are instructed to pray for those in authority over us. This is true for the leaders in the body of Christ, the workplace and in the political arena. Right now, our nation is at a major crossroad. Each of us should spend time each day praying for our nation’s leaders. We should also pray for direction as to whom we should vote for in the coming elections. God has given us a great country with great freedoms. With those freedoms come great responsibilities, one of those responsibilities is to vote. Sticking our head in the sand or turning away from hard decisions is not the an option for Christians. As we are told in the book of James:
17 Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
— James 4:17
Pray and pray some more, then go vote!
