Hang out on Facebook for while and you will see lots of complaints about the way our country is being run. Sometimes I’m tempted to complain, too–I have grandkids and I’m concerned for their futures! But this verse reminds me of an obligation we as believers have: to pray for our leaders. I like the thanksgiving. I am grateful to live in America, where we have more freedom than any other country in the world. Have you prayed today for those in leadership? If not, why not lift them to the throne? They need God’s wisdom and discernment as they make decisions that will impact us for years to come.
