LET US PRAY FOR THE NATIONS! We read in Ephesians 6:18: “ Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere”. We believed that the Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. Psalm 145:18. We are urged, first of all, to pray for all people. We ask God to help them; we intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. We pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 2:1-5. And since we know He hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He will give us what we ask for. 1Jn 5:15. Amen.
