Day 11: A Prayer for Government
1 Peter 2:13-14, “Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good.”
Often the command to submit to our earthly authorities is one of the more difficult one’s to obey because no human can possibly match Christ’s perfect leadership. However, our obedience to this command allows us to demonstrate faith in God in spite of our circumstances. Pray for our authorities this morning. Pray for our government. Ask God to grant our leaders a special measure of grace and wisdom.
