TODAY'S MANNA for Tuesday June 8, 2021
Praying For All Men
I exhort therefore, that, first of 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. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
1 Tim 2:1-3 King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
Are you praying for all men – especially your leaders?
Notice that the verse above says we are to “FIRST OF ALL”, before we do anything else, offer supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks for ALL men. God was explicit about the fact that before we do anything else we were to pray for ALL men (men here meaning all mankind). And yes that includes even those with whom you may not agree, especially if they are in a place of authority over you. Like your government. Even and especially for those who may not yet know our Lord and God, even to those who are our natural enemies. But do not gripe and complain about what they are or are not doing if you are NOT praying for them. But the Word of God goes on to say that we must pray for those in authority so that we can lead quiet and peaceable lives and that this is good in the sight of our God. We must all continue to pray for wisdom, patience, knowledge, and the will and plan of God ("...Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven...") for our leaders like never before. Especially now with things the way they are in world around us. Not just once in some prayer vigil, but rather continually, everyday.
Father I thank You for Your leadership and Your guidance. Lord thank You for hearing our prayers and for providing the necessary wisdom, knowledge, and strength to our country's leaders at this present time. Father, prepare our leaders for the task still ahead of them. For the rebuilding and the strengthening of this country and its people. Lord I pray that you would silence the mouths of those who talk against our leadership and in turn are talking against You Lord. Show them, Lord Your way of doing things. Thank You that You are at work in the hearts of men even now, causing them to want to and giving them the strength to do Your will. Father, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done here on Earth Lord, just as it is done in Heaven. Through Jesus' mighty name I pray.
