Day 6 – Government

We are praying today for those who are public servants – they protect, respond to crisis and emergencies, set policies, and enforce laws at the local, state, and national levels.  Some are hired, some elected, some appointed yet all are tasked with carrying out specific duties that help our society function. 

1 Timothy 2:1-3

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior,

Jesus taught and lived a life that demonstrated that when God’s Kingdom rules and reigns, we become a society that cares for its people, teaches responsibility, encourages honest communication, and uplifts the down cast. Kingdom people are people of justice and sacrificial service for the good of the community. 

Today, let’s pray –

Pray that Jesus’ perspective and heart would shine out of every area of the government and public sector.

Ask the Father who He would bring to your mind that He wants you to pray for in the government and public sector.  Spend some time asking for their peace, favor and wisdom as they carry out their responsibilities.
