from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

Political Prayers

Job 12:24 provides a little hint as to how we should pray for our country, not just during times of political elections.

“He [God] deprives the world’s leaders of reason, and makes them wander in a trackless wasteland.”

Our prayers tend to be, “God, put so and so in office,” or “God, please get so and so out of office.”
Maybe our prayers should be for God to give those already in office “reason,” wisdom, courage, and insight.

Perhaps one reason we don’t is because the whole idea of God changing those already in office seems hopeless. But think about that for a moment. Is anything hopeless with God? Is anything too hard for him?

Maybe we should exercise more faith and less political slandering. Maybe. It’s just a thought.
