First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 1 Timothy 2:1-2 ESV
2 Chronicles 36
Many have likened our current president as Cyrus of our day in history because he loves Jewish people and religious freedom for all. Please pray for him. He has already done so much to protect our rights that have been attacked for many years now. No other leader of the "free" world has done what he has done on our behalf.
God looks for faithfulness and steadfast love from His peeps. This is what a land faces who hate God:
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
because you have rejected knowledge,
I reject you from being a priest to me.
And since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.
2 Timothy 3
1 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.
Sound familiar? Pray, speak life, love, be an example of the Lord.
16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
Apply Today: Continue today and daily in the knowledge of the Holy One. Pray, speak life, love, be an example of the Lord. Keep to the Word!
Thank you, Lord, that your Word is the Way! May I never stray from what is best for me--doing things your way!
Yes Lord help us be consistent in our relationship with you with steadfastness and love. Help us be good examples and pray for our nation and its leaders.
