First of all, then, I ask that requests, prayers, petitions, and thanksgiving be made for all people. 2 Pray for kings and everyone who is in authority so that we can live a quiet and peaceful life in complete godliness and dignity.
( 1 Timothy 2:1–2)
Good Day Family,
Pray is powerful and so simple. It’s talking to God. You can be faithful and talk about people…if you’re talking to God. Lifting up friend and foe, neighbor and stranger, family and coworkers to the One who loves us all makes all the difference in the world because prayer not only changes circumstances, it changes us.
When we pray, we gain insight and empathy. Our mutual Creator reminds us that each of us has been fearfully and wonderfully made. Each of us is beloved by God. Each of us has a divinely-inspired purpose and plan for their lives.
We all need prayer, strength and encouragement, comfort and support, to help us on the journey. Those in authority bear an extra burden that benefits from prayer. In these days when there is so much public discord, perhaps, we can at least all agree to pray…for everyone.
Let us encourage one another. Let us love our neighbor. Let us be the church.
