“First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men, For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way. For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Saviour.”  1 Timothy 2:1-3 AMP

If we haven’t, let’s make it a priority to pray for leadership – both for those that carry the sceptre AND for the support team. A well-meaning leader can have his/her vision and/or efforts frustrated by certain actions of team members.
Let’s pray for leaders at various levels – in the body of Christ, our nations, workplaces, families etc. Their decisions affect us, so we are also doing ourselves a favour by praying for them. Besides, God tells us to – that about settles it! 😀

Proverbs 29:12 KJV
If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.

Proverbs 25:5 AMP
Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne will be established in righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation).

God bless you 😀
