The book of 2 Kings continues the drama begun in 1 Kings – the tragic history of two nations on a collision course with captivity. Nineteen consecutive evil kings rule in Israel, leading to the captivity by Assyria. The picture is somewhat brighter in Judah, where godly kings occasionally emerge to reform the evils of their predecessors,. (The Open Bible – NKJV)
Lord, we recognize the importance of godly leaders and ask You to appoint such ones in every position of power and influence in this nation. May they “emerge to reform the evils of their predecessors”. Cause us to be wise, knowledgeable citizens that vote for righteous leaders- Use my life to establish righteousness and to help bring Your Kingdom to earth. Help me to pray faithfully for our leaders.
Pray for your National Leaders
