So, what do we do when we see corruption in our government? Do we have leaders that are in it for themselves who we know are going the wrong direction?
Yes! But our response is to pray.
Because God answers when we pray. He knows every leader, every move, every motive, every wrong and every right decision.
God answers when we pray.
He hates corrupt government as much as we do but we must remember that He loves the people. So we pray.
“Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked ruler over a helpless people. A tyrannical ruler practices extortion, but one who hates ill-gotten gain will enjoy a long reign. Anyone tormented by the guilt of murder will seek refuge in the grave; let no one hold them back. The one whose walk is blameless is kept safe, but the one whose ways are perverse will fall into the pit. Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty. A faithful person will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished. To show partiality is not good—yet a person will do wrong for a piece of bread.” Proverbs 28:15-21
Lord, we pray for our global, national, state, and local leaders. Please let them look beyond their own desires and look into Your face to make Your decisions. Thank You.
