VERSE: "The king’s heart is like channels of water in the Hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He wishes." (Proverbs 21:1)
EQUATION: God’s Ways: not equal: Our Ways.
ACTION: Look at the history of man, from the Creator’s Perspective. He used a brutal proud pagan named Nebuchadnezzar to bring judgment on His own people Israel, then broke him completely from his incredible pride until Nebuchadnezzar was saved and proclaimed Yahweh. Our job – pray for the hearts of the leaders of the country, state and city to make it easier on those whom they lead, themselves and their children, by turning to God, Who is Sovereign and will get His Way, in the end.
PRAYER: Father, in the Mighty Name of Jesus we pray first for our own hearts that we don’t get too sideways on the things of this world and forget what we are commanded to do. We pray for obedience to Thy Word and compliance with the Holy Spirit. We pray also that Thy Perfect Will be done on earth in the hearts of those in positions of authority and power over us, that they may obey you and not rule corruptly, unjustly or unethically. Finally, Lord, we pray for their salvation, and that the heart of their children will also turn to you and be saved before it is too late, and that none of their actions will continue contradicting the Word of God, Your Precepts or any of Your commandments, in Jesus Strong Name. Amen.
