THE TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS OF PRAYER

Daily Devotional

“I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity” (1 Timothy 2:1-2).

When recognizing the three institutions ordained by God–family, governments, and the church–I would speculate that frequent prayers are offered for our homes and churches, while suspicioning that government leaders receive more of our criticism than our prayers. It is to the benefit of all concerned if the church would pray Godly wisdom for those elected officials entrusted with the responsibility of preserving, protecting, perpetuating the social fabric of a civilized existence and the intentions of God for the nations. Apparently, even the Lord knows they need it.
