Are You Happy With Your Leader?

Bless those who rule over you.

Pray for those in authority and change a nation.

As Christians, we do not have the right to complain about who wins and who loses an election. If we can vote, we should vote, but beyond that, we are commanded to honor those in authority.

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence  for this is good and acceptable in the sight of God. (1Tim 2:1-3)

Are you happy with your leader? Then thank God and bless the man, or woman. Are you unhappy with him? Then pray for him and intercede on his behalf. Don’t think that your prayers and blessings don’t count. We are told to pray because it is effective in changing the hearts and minds of those who need to hear from God.

This commandment also forces us out of an attitude of complaining and into one of caring. Who ever is the leader is also a person, and we are told to love others as much as we love our self  If we remember the humanity of people, we can see their needs, and prayer and intercession becomes not only easy, but an awesome way to bless them into the kingdom.
