Up To Know Good on Tuesday
August 29, 2006
During my first year of college, I had some passionately politically liberal Christian friends. My sophomore year, I got to know some conservative Christians who took pride in being Republicans. Then, a year after college I met others at church with a third, unique way of seeing faith and politics. In the years since my early twenties, I have decided to simply pray as I research candidates and vote. I also continue to pray for the leaders who ultimately end up in office whether they got my vote or not.
Do Good - Pray for your political leaders today from the local to national level. Whether you voted for them or not, consider how God is using them and wants to bless them.
In all of the passionate political discussions I had with my various friends, I dont ever remember stopping to pray. Now, I have much more peace as I remember God is in control of everything - even politics.
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for everyone - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. I Timothy 2:1-2. Click here to read I Timothy 2:1-8.
Jesus, bless our political leaders and give them wisdom in their work.
Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.
I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
