“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 ASV
How To Pray: II Timothy 2: 1-8
First of all, I ask you to pray for everyone. Ask God to help and bless them all, and tell God how thankful you are for each of them. 2) Pray for kings and others in power, so that we may live quiet and peaceful lives as we worship and honor God. 3) This kind of prayer is good, and it pleases God our Savior. 4) God wants everyone to be saved and to know the whole truth, which is,
There is only one God, and Christ Jesus is the only one. I, (Paul) want everyone everywhere to lift innocent hands toward heaven and pray, without being angry or arguing with each other. 1 Timothy 2:1-8 CEV And, I Sara, want the same and pray the same for God’s World!
Together we can, yes, we can! This has been my prayers for President Bush and First Lady Laura, as well as for any and all our Presidents and leaders of the World. Why, because I believe the message in the letter that Paul, the apostle, wrote. Paul wrote this letter around AD 64, believed to be just prior to Paul final imprisonment in Rome and near the end of his life.
How to feel and act:
You may be angry about President Elect Obama winning, ok, be angry but sin not! Psalm 4:4 “Be angry, and do not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah
This point written by Paul has been one of my very favorite teaching of all times that has 0 chance of failure when acted upon, Romans 12:21 “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” NLT writes it like this “Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.” I hope if Senator Obama was not our choice we would be as gracious and Christ like as Senator John McCain in saying congratulations to President Elect Obama and proclaim in words and actions we will be with you, Mr. President.
Don’t you just love doing it God’s Way!
