Pray For Godly Leadership

You can tell who knows the word of God and who does not by the use of their own words coming from their mouths. Those of us who read the word know that the word tells us to put a watch on our words when we speak them. What we speak is what we are going to get according to the word.

Prov. 6 v are snared by the words of your mouth, you are taken by the words of your mouth.....

Prov 13 v 3....He who guards his mouth preserves his life, But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction....

We can tell who knows the word by those who pray for our leadership, people in authority over us for example our President, instead of complaining about our leadership. How can we tell? Let's see what the word says.

1 Tim 2 v 1-2....Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings, and all who are in authority, that we may lead quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence....

What's my point? Glad you asked, My point is this, that when all we do is walk around bad mouthing our system, our leaders, our president, then we are going to get just exactly what we are saying about them. But if we use the word of God, and pray for those in leadership, in authority, then we are giving power over to God's word and not our own words. AMEN!

So the next time someone sends you a negative email, or starts speaking negative about our leadership, our President or any who are in authority, close your ears to what they are saying, don't give room in your heart to receive that message and instead speak the word of God over it so that the negative message becomes null and void. AMEN!

Father we come to you today and we ask for blessings over our nation. We ask for blessings over our leadership. We ask for safety over our president and his family, and all others who work in authorative positions. We ask Lord, that you bless each one in authority with your divine wisdom and understanding of your word. Father that you would give them direction in all their decision making. Thank you Lord for our leaders, and thank you for guiding them on your path. AMEN.

How do you know the right words to speak and pray?
