PRAY FOR PEACE IN YOUR NATION!
And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace (Jeremiah 29:7).
Every Christian has a duty to pray for the peace in his nation. Whenever there is peace in the nation, everyone will experience peace and live in safety. But when there is chaos and anarchy, everyone will live in fear. Peace brings development to the nation. That is why Christians need to pray for their leaders and to the nation as well. Whoever prays for peace in his nation is referred to as a child of God (Matthew 5:9). A nation devoid of peace can never experience growth and development.
A Christian is expected to always intercede for his leaders. This is why Apostle Paul admonished us in 1 Timothy 2:1-2, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.” Your prayer has a potency to effect a change in the nation. It is essentially the duty of every Christian to always intercede for peace and well-being of his nation.
Our nation of today is full of corruption, embezzlement and different kinds of vices in every stratum of our society. Even the so called Christians are not exempted from these maladies. In fact, every Christian owns this nation intercession and prayers. We need to intercede for the peace, well-being and progress of this nation. This nation is in need of divine intervention and you have a big role to play as a Christian. It is the prayer of the saints that can rescue this nation from doom and destruction. Therefore, arise and pray!
Daily Tip: Every Christian should endeavor to stand in the gap for the peace, well-being and progress of our dear nation. Shalom!
Golden Text: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you” (Psalm 122:6).
