2 I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 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. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 5 For,
There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. 6 He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. ~ 1Timothy 2:1-5
I put “President Obama” as the title of this because I knew it would grab the attention of so many, just waiting to read about what a horrible President he is. When he was elected 6 years ago for the first time people jumped on the band wagon about him talking about everything that they knew nothing about, just what they read in the media that has it’s own agenda be if it’s the left or the right point of view. I made the choice to pray for him……and not talk smack about him. Do I agree or even LIKE the decisions and choices he makes??? I do not agree and on some issue I disagree 100% – but he is a man and he is our president, our leader and the Bible says for me and you to pray for our leaders!!
I hate to break it to you but the word says nothing about praying for them to change their minds on the issues you don’t like but to pray for their salvation, for them to believe and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior….There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. 6 He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone!!!
Try it….it changes the way you feel about a person/leader if you pray for them. You DO NOT have to agree with them but you are CALLED OUT to pray for them. I get so sick of “Christians” who post “HATE” about our leaders. HE is not Satan he is a man with a heart, a spirit and a soul. This is not a perfect world and it never will be.
Now take it to another level — what about world leaders? Same thing applies. So, the question is can we pray for ISIS leaders and still kill them to take them out? Would LOVE to hear opinions and WHY? Support your thoughts. (you can post them on my FB page under this post)
Now go out and have an EPIC day today.
