What an incredible day yesterday was!
On February 19th, Pastor’s and church members from around the state of Colorado gathered at the Colorado State Capitol to pray for and encourage our legislators. Paul told Timothy to keep government leaders in his prayers.
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
1 Timothy 2:1-4
I want to encourage you to pray for out legislators in two ways
1. Pray that the Lord would give them Godly wisdom as they serve as our representatives.
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
2. Pray that they would legislate righteously.
But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
Remember that prayer makes a difference. We often have not because we ask not. Let me encourage you to pray for your legislators on a regular basis and then reach out t those legoslators and let them know that you are praying for them.
