Government

 

As citizens of the United States, we are priviledged to participate in the legislative process through our vote.  As believers in Jesus Christ, we have another way to participate - through prayer!

Eph 3:10 tells us that "His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.."

God's church, His people are the legal voice on earth to speak God's will.  In this section, you will find prayer alerts and guides to prompt you as you pray for our local, state and federal government.  Take time to listen for God's voice, to know His will.  Then, decree it to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.  If you are speaking God's Will,,,,it will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Pray for The Situation in Syria

Posted in Government

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God," we read in Philippians 4:6-7. "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

How are you doing in terms of praying during this Syria crisis? We need to be praying daily — indeed, several times a day — knowing that our God is a prayer-hearing, and prayer-answering God, a wonder-working God.

Prayer for Government Leaders

Posted in Government

We call forth the spirit man of every legislative leaders in Colorado to be in perfect alignment and submission to Holy Spirit and to take pre-eminence over the mind, will and emotions so that every Colorado politician now reflects the principles of the Word of God in all that they say and do in the world of politics….that political correctness now ceases and bows to the Truth of the Word of God...so that every politician now reveres and fears You more than they do man…..that they act on Your will and Your Word while rejecting the desires of man and humanism.  That they will become the servants of God and the people that they are supposed to be...no longer self-serving, but servants of the Most High God and His people.

Are You Praying or Sniping?

As Christians, we are commanded in the Scriptures to pray for our leaders.
"First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity," the Apostle Paul wrote in I Timothy 2:1-3. "This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."

Whether we agree with them or not -- whether we like them are not -- we are to pray for wisdom and discernment so our leaders can distinguish truth from error, fact from fiction. We are to pray for patience and for courage for our leaders, so they don't act rashly, but that they act with determination when the time is right. We are to pray that they govern well, protecting life and liberty, above all. We should also pray that they turn to the God of the Bible in prayer, as well, to receive "wisdom from above" and not earthly wisdom (see James chapter three).

Commissioner John Griesheimer and the Franklin County elected officials stood their ground against the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and won! The ACLU has abandoned their legal challenge against these leaders who permit invocations to be offered before meetings of the Franklin County Commission! The lawsuit was dismissed on July 19th in the U.S. District Court of Eastern Missouri.
