A Time to Pray
Pray Without Ceasing
2 Timothy 2:1-4 says, “First of all, then, 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. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
With these words, we are confronted with our primary responsibility to our “neighbors” in our country. It is to entrust ourselves to our Heavenly Father in diligent and fervent prayer for all of our governing authorities. This Thursday is what is known as “The National Day of Prayer.” It is a great opportunity for us to apply this message personally. More than anything what our country needs is divine intervention and a realization of our waywardness from God.
Along these lines, please remember, also, that this Wednesday night (and every Wednesday night) is also a great opportunity to do that as we meet for prayer as a church (7pm in Room WC3). May God help us be a God-Dependent people for our country, and for the world, that they may come to the knowledge of the truth.
