Paul encourages Christians to pray for all men, including kings and those in high places such as President Trump. “I exhort therefore that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men: (v. 2) For kings, and for all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (I Timothy 2:1-2).
To pray for kings and all that are in high places means to pray for the rulers of the land. The purpose of these prayers is that the rulers might rule in such a way that Christians may worship and serve God unmolested. We are to pray for civil authorities and all who are in authority. No matter how good or how bad they are, pray for them. No matter how moral or immoral they are, pray for them. No matter how just or unjust they are, pray for them. To those who hate Donald Trump as our President, pray for him.
Many Christians felt disdain for Obama when he went overseas and apologized for America and when he announced that America was no longer a Christian nation. It was very upsetting when he told us that bathrooms would be genderless. When he said that no big jobs would be coming back to America, it took away our American dreams. But Christians accepted him as much as we could.
We waited and prayed for a president who would take a stand for America and the Christian faith as President Trump has done. He may not be a perfect man, but he is a true patriot! We need to pray for our president, his safety, and his ability to defeat the evil powers working against our nation that is immoral and indecent.
We know that God can save a nation through one person like Esther, or spare a multitude through the prayers of Moses. Help our president and all Christians to cry out against the evils going on in our society --- the evils of abortion and killing innocent babies, homosexuality, transgenderism, corruption in government. The enemies of God, on the left, are pushing Federal persecution of Christians with legislation that would criminalize Christianity if we don’t promote homosexuality (so-called Equality Act/HR#5).
Help our president and all Christians to cry out against the evil and horrible abuse of children being put into the sex industry in America. The Deep State is working hard to take over our liberties with the goal to remove God from our society and replace Him with a one world government with Satan as it’s god!
The bottom line is that the world cannot be saved through intellectual snobbery, hyper-intellectuals; but we must return to the old paths. If America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great in the eyes of God.
The hope of America lies in Christians standing up for God, morality and restoring values in our society which are being removed by social engineering. Don’t hesitate to cry out against that which the global elites are trying to destroy, because the very foundation on which our nation rests is at stake.
Therefore, we must pray for our president, that he is filled to the brim with wisdom, knowledge, morality, courage, boldness and understanding so that peace and security can rule throughout our land.
