PRAY, PRAY, PRAY There’s always plenty to commit to God and you can take any of the news/information snippets inside as a prompt for prayer.
Over and about that, this week I would encourage you to pray actively and persistently for our country as it goes to the polls. Our individual votes may feel like they hold little sway, but the reality of who governs our nation has a very real and significant impact on the detail of many, many people’s lives.
Part of the antidote to feeling frustrated and disempowered in that process is to know God stands over all, and follow Paul’s advice to Timothy,
‘I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority, so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.’
