The Righteous Must Pray

(Prov. 11:11) “By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.”

If Christians expect to see our communities changed, if we expect to see our school systems and local governments changed; if we expect to see our cities turn toward the face of God we are going to have to pray. We must say what God said in His word as it pertains to our local government. Saints of God it’s so easy to get caught up in speaking pessimistically about our city leaders and what they should or should not be doing. However, let’s speak the word of God over their lives because unless we have walked in their shoes we don’t have a clue of what it is like to lead a local government. But what we do know is the blessing of the upright exalts a city, but that same city comes under attack by the mouth of the wicked. Thus, never let it be said that the saints of God were a part of that overthrow by speaking negative words over our city officials. If we need them to do better (and we most certainly do) then let’s be sure we pray instead of sitting around talking about how bad they are. In fact, find a way to get involved if what they are doing concerns you that much. Apostle Paul said it perfectly when he told Timothy “I exhort therefore, that first of all, that all supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men: For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty (Tim. 2:1-2 KJV).”

God Bless You
