For the most part, I’m not one to be heavily involved in politics. But thanks to social media 😜 I’m generally aware of what’s happening and who is on what side.
Apparently there have been some speeches given lately that seem to be the topic of conversation for a lot of my social media friends.
In my personal opinion, it’s ok to be upset about something you don’t agree with or when something you believe in is being challenged. However, I DO NOT think it’s ok to largely disrespect our President.
This morning in my quiet time I read Psalm 101 along with the @first5app. It isn’t a coincidence that I read this at 6:00 am and felt the heavy urge to pray for our President and those in the White House, BEFORE I got on any type of media and was still totally unaware of what was happening on there.
My chicken scratch says “Attributes is a great leader! Praying these over President Trump today! 07-18-19”
Psalm 101 is a vow of integrity for those in leadership. It’s a short 8 verses, but is packed with virtues that create Godly leaders. Virtues that we should be praying and speaking over the leaders in our lives.
Imagine what would happen if we raised our voices in prayer for the President and the officials in the White House, rather than raise our voices in slanderous talk.
As I was discussing this with my husband, he brought up 1 Timothy 2:1-3 NIV
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior.
Today friends, I challenge you, no matter what side you stand on, to raise your voice in prayer for the leaders of our nation. If you aren’t sure where to begin, Psalm 101 is great starting point! You can literally just read it with a specific leader in mind. After all, this is an instruction given to us in the Bible with quite the rewarding promise!
I don’t know about you, but I want to live a life that is both good and pleasing to the Lord while living in His peaceful holiness.
Thank you @first5app for publishing this months ago for such a time as this.
