Especially Leaders

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Timothy 2:1-15

A constant practicer and advocate of prayer, Paul counsels Timothy that prayer should be made on behalf of all people, but specifically for those who are rulers and leaders. This charge is a good one at all times, but is so timely and relevant right now in the United States and in other countries around the world. The charge to pray regularly for political leaders is not something new to me, yet it's one I don't practice enough. And, it's not just political leaders who need our prayers. Our church leaders and people we work for need our prayers too.

Is it your practice to pray for your political leaders (national, state, county, city)? Would you join me today in praying for the country where you live and all of its leaders? And please remember to pray for your church leaders and work leaders as well. ALL of these people need our prayers. Tami
