Presidential Prayer Team

Scripture has a lot to say about the Christian’s response to those in authority.  In Titus 3:1-2, we are advised to, “…be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed, to malign no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing every consideration for all men.”  And in 1 Timothy 2:1-4 we are urged, “…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.  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.”  It quickly becomes clear that our response to those who rule over us is one of the clearest demonstrations of our faith.  That’s why, this week, we’re featuring the ministry of the Presidential Prayer Team along with some great resources to help you become more involved in making a difference both in our nation and around the world.

A non-partisan organization, PPT is dedicated to providing up to the minute news regarding the issues affecting our nation through their 24-7 Prayer Watch as well as continual coverage of what’s happening Inside Washington.  Through their Viewpoint venue, believers from all perspectives have the opportunity to weigh in on the issues that matter most to them in a fashion that promotes friendly communication between those who don’t always see eye-to-eye.  Record your prayers on the Prayer Wall or take a Prayer University course and learn how to better pray for the leaders who daily influence the direction of our country.  There’s even a Daily Devotion to help you keep your focus as you pray that God’s will be done here… just as it is in heaven!  There’s plenty to see, so take some time to explore the site, then commit to praying regularly for those who govern both our nation and other nations around the world.

  1. Hi Anna,
    You always hit the point. This is so true, but how many of Christians pray for a godly government?
    I believe very few. They are too wrapped up in political parties.
    Great article.

    It is a biblical truth that we should obey those in authority. If for no other reason at the moment than to stay clear of useless arguments and dissension. Although, I think it is important to add that we obey authority, until, authority asks of us to do that which is disrespectful of the Lord Christ. We are not to obey that. Many Christians are laying down their God-given freedoms for obedience to politicians who believe they are “gods.”
