2017 United States Presidential Inauguration A Mighty Call to Prayer
This week I humbly ask that we pray peace of our nation. With the passing of power we need to be in prayer for the outgoing administration as they seek the next chapter in their lives. We also need to be in prayer for the incoming administration as they prepare to lead our nation.
The best thing we can do for our Country is to be unified in our love for each other with unhindered prayers that are empowered by our unity. Jesus thought the unity of His followers was important enough to spend His last night on earth as a man praying about it. We must strive together; we must pray to end the chaos and attacks on others before it goes another season. Jesus said a house divided against itself cannot stand.
I recognize that this election has been contentious, with a diversity of views. I have prayed for the past eight years for President Obama and his family and I will continue to pray for our new President and family as well. I Pray for all the elected officials who run our country no matter if I agree with them or not. It’s our duty as Christian’s to do so and prayers can change hearts, minds and give wisdom to those very people. Just remember it was JESUS who said “nothing is impossible with God” that is our hope that we rest upon. Just focus on Him and let Him lead the way. It may be a different outcome than you had planned, however He knows best for each of us. God promises, “…..that ALL things will work together for the good of those who love Him.” Romans 8:28 .
Don’t give up. Don’t worry. Keep praying. Keep the peace. Strive for unity. Keep focused on Jesus. Keep the faith. Keep believing. Don’t loose hope. God’s got this because nothing is impossible with Him.
Martin Luther King taught that hate cannot drive out hate. The response to this challenge is love with action. Together we can pray for God to guide our country as we move forward. As the protesters prepare for Friday may they all remember Dr. King’s quote, “As you prepare to march, meditate on the life and teachings of Jesus.” May God put shield of protection around everyone Friday! Let’s pray for God to be glorified at Friday’s inauguration! May our faith enable us to sow the seeds of love in our ever-changing world. We are playing into the devil’s hand and he is out to destroy this Country, our families, and the list could go on and on. We need Jesus to heal this very broken land and unify our Country. Will you join me praying for our Country and leaders?
Daniel 2:21And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
1 Timothy 2:1-2 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
1 Peter 2:17 Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king
