The Church during the days of Corona Virus: Pray for the Election
October 25, 2020 by SLIMJIM
Our “This Sunday” series will be another a Corona Virus edition. For this week: Pray for the Election.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 states
First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity
I know there’s disagreements about the election even among genuine Christians especially when we get more into the details and I’m not going to make this into a debate post on the Lord’s Day. But believers can unite in one thing: praying for those who are in authority and also who will be in authority. Verse here states that clearly we should be praying. In America of course presidents are voted in every four years. So we should pray not only for the president but also for the process of voting for the president. Pray for the voters to be informed, that Christians vote from biblical values and God gives wisdom to all, Christians and non-Christians.
1 Timothy 2 also reveal precisely why we pray for those in authority has to do with our walks with God (v.2). It is so that we live a life in all godliness. But that presupposes we are striving towards godliness and dignity. Brothers and sisters are you?
Let us pray and let us pursue sanctification even in the midst of 2020.
P.S. (from bruce) When there is no other place to turn…turn to God !! If you’re not a “born again” Christian, is the Holy Spirit urging you to open this link ??
