musings of a hopefilled soul

Praying For Our Leaders

With this being an election year, we are  bombarded with political ads. Posturing of candidates is easily recognized.  The President is making decisions based on winning political points. The opponent is promising things that he may not be able to bring about.

Party against party  with each saying their way is right.  I am  a conservative at heart but a mere middle class individual. I agree with many Republican  stances but do not adhere to any one party.Today as I thought about the upcoming election, I wondered if it were possible for us all to pull together, at least to pray.

It concerns me that all of the credit and blame is taken by the party of the administration in office at any given time.  I am so frustrated with each party celebrating when the other messes up. I guess that’s politics but is it really good for our country. Little is accomplished if there is a concern about the party in power getting the credit.

While I do not agree with all of our presidents policies and decisions I have determined to pray for him. Our country and our lives are at stake here.

1 Timothy 2:1-2″ 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.”

If we have 4 more years of this president or 4 years of a candidate we do not like, wouldn’t it be better to enter the new term in prayer for them, which is indeed our most powerful resource?
