Our nation and our state are going through an incredibly difficult time. Government leaders are polarized into two camps with contradictory agendas and seemingly irreconcilable differences. What can we do? We are commanded in the Bible, not to hurl insults, but to PRAY for our political leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-4, Titus 3:1-2). Now is a good time to be doing that – a lot.
What should we pray for? Click here if you would like to read an article I have written titled “How to Pray for Political Leaders.” In this article I list five prayer suggestions based on selected Scriptures and my frequent interaction with state leaders. You might want to print this and keep it with your Bible to use as a daily prayer guide.
Thank you for your prayers for us also. All the Capitol Commission State Directors from across the United States came together earlier this month for a pastors’ conference and ministry planning meetings near Los Angeles. They are all great guys, and it was a very encouraging time for us as we exhorted one another to press on. We must each raise 100% of the support needed to continue the work in our respective State Capitols, including all expenses for printing, travel, equipment, phone, internet, etc… It sometimes seems a daunting challenge from a human perspective, but we are each trusting God to provide through those in our state. We so appreciate your partnership.
Below is a photo taken of us all as we toured a Central Valley dairy. It was a good trip for those of us who were still wondering if chocolate milk comes from brown cows. (I’m in the front row, third from the left.)
Please contact me anytime if you have any questions or would like a tour of the State Capitol!
