It is easy to be vocal against policies with which we disagree especially those that are morally wrong. Being vocal and exercising the right of free speech is one of the great benefits of being an American. However, on this Presidents Day, we should be vocal in another way—vocal in prayer. As people of the cross, we can get distracted by news stories, rulings and the silence about ISIS persecutions. Let’s be reminded of a Bible truth.
Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water:He turneth it whithersoever he will.
God holds our President’s heart in his hand and is perfectly able to direct it. As believers we ought to lift up our President in prayer today because the God of the Bible is ultimately in control. After all, this is what God commands us to do for all those that are in authority over us.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
Take a moment and pray for our President Barack Obama today.
