There Is A Scripture 05-01-20

A brother of mine posts words of encouragement and yesterday he was expressing his hope that in these times we would be praying for our nation, pursuing a deeper relationship with our heavenly Father and a greater awareness of His presence.

Then this morning my wife played a short video, Ronald Reagan: Man of Faith, and in it I saw and heard a man in a position of great power and influence speaking of the frailties of man and the need we all have and the need of this nation to stick close to and exercise faith in Jesus, believe in God.

We talk about our responsibility to pray for our leaders and our nation and why would we not want to be a warrior on the spiritual battlefield guarding and protecting those who lead us and our fellow citizens in the community of this nation, and of the world really.

But how inspiring it is to listen when our leaders, and for me this one in particular, stand publically before the nation and quote scriptures of comfort and encouragement, who uses the name of Jesus naturally and unashamedly, who speak of  our absolute need to go to God in prayer… “…Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning…” Psalm 30:5…by dying for us, Jesus showed how far our love should be ready to go…all the way… Ronald Reagan… quoting Abraham Lincoln…I have been driven many times to my knees by the over whelming conviction that I have nowhere else to go…”

Those who lead us seem so far away. It’s like they live in a different world and don’t really know what it’s like where we are at. But when they speak like this in a quiet and matter of fact way it brings them close and we realized, and they do too, we are all human no matter our station. That is a comfort and a reason for hope.

I feel sorry for politicians from time to time. It seems that their faith has to suffer because the choices they are confronted with seem always to be between the lesser of two evils and their names are associated with laws and rulings contrary to the faith they profess. They live in an environment of constant compromise and though they may not consider it suffering…they are suffering. But here we see the consequences of not being in unity.

So they do need our prayers and we should be consistently faithful to offer them up and fervent and heartfelt as we do. By our prayers and the example of our lives at the grass roots, of family, of fellowship and churches, of community, they might be inspired and find it easier to stick with the faith, the Word of God, pursue a deeper relationship with their Father and a real ever present awareness of His presence.

It could be the strength they need to stand, speak the Scriptures, say the Name and hold the line, be uncompromising when things just aren’t right. They need our prayers… and our example.

Father…we pray for our leaders and that our prayers for them will be powerful in their effect.

Though we express frustration and anger and fears to You, concerning the times and events and the behavior of our leaders…and ours as well…Father may all that, give way to a calming, soothing Breath of Your Spirit to ours.

May our prayers be for the result that… it will be well… with the health of the land and with the bodies and souls of its leaders and citizens.

May the spirit of  Your love and caring, desiring good for one another, inhabit and be the heart of our prayers and our actions.

May our prayers be strong and effectual.

May they be full of trust and thanksgiving and surrendered to You will.

May they draw men to You and glorify You.

You Father…are worthy.

In Yeshua’s name we pray,

Amen.

May God’s love be in us all.

Elder.
