Pray for the Court; Pray for the Church

We definitely need to be praying for our country and its leaders.   There are major decisions being made that have the potential to radically affect the relationship between the church and state.  Let us pray for wisdom for our leaders.  But also let us pray for wisdom, grace, mercy, and boldness for the church.

In 1 Peter 2:13, we read the church is to “be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good.”

But we also read in Acts 4:19-20 after the High Priest and others told Peter and John to stop talking about Jesus they said, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.”  And in Acts 5:29 after the apostles had again been told not to teach about Jesus they said, “We must obey God rather than men.”
