One of the most important admonitions for the church today is found in I Timothy 2:1-4. It reads, "1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth." (KJV). For most Christians, there is a tendency to forget those in office when we pray. Instead, our prayers are centered around our personal needs and those few prayer request that have been recently put before us. Wouldn't it be wonderful to think that instead of the November 2 election simply being a referendum on unpopular policies, that it was instead an answer to prayer by Christians that remembered to pray for our elected leaders. Certainly we now have more leaders that include conservatives (some of which are probably Christians) that may help us to continue to have freedom to worship and pray -- a privilege that many don't enjoy in other countries.
