The American election is over. Now is the time for each of us to obey the admonition we read in I Tim. 2:2-4: “Pray…for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.”

Our God’s desire is that everyone will come to know Him personally (John 17:3). Praying for leaders in government helps to prepare the way for a spiritual awakening in our nation. We desperately need a revival in America. And for my friends in other nations, pray for your leaders during this strategic time in history. Remember, “The Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.” (Matt. 24:14)

And let’s pray for each other and for the church in this hour, to renew in our hearts our biblical mandate to “go into all the world and make disciples” as we give ourselves to the king and His kingdom. (Matt. 28:19)
