Let’s Pray!

If you have checked the international news at all, you know that the Middle East is a powder keg. Every human being has to be troubled by the brutality and the loss of innocent life in Syria.

Both sides of the political aisle are suggesting caution because of major political consequences. There are cries for President Obama to take decisive action against the Syrian government, while others are demanding no response or delayed response.

I am glad I am not in the position of being an advisor to the President and his team, but I do know One with infinite wisdom.

The Scriptures challenge followers of Christ to pray for our governmental leaders. This is not only commanded, but also pleasing to the Lord. Please read 1 Timothy 2:1-8 and Romans 13:1-7.

May I encourage you to take some time today to pray for President Obama. Let’s pray that as he seeks God’s face, that the Lord would give him wisdom in the kind and timing of action. May this prayer be continual from the people of God.

The multiple problems of war, injustice and hostility around the world remind us that man cannot solve man’s problems. True peace can only come from the Prince of Peace!
