The scripture for today, September 8, is Daniel 9:8 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“O Lord, we and our kings, our princes and our fathers are covered with shame because we have sinned against you.”
Have you prayed for your government lately? I Timothy 2:1 & 2 says “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone ~ for kings and all those in authority.” At the time of this writing, Nero Caesar, who led the persecution of tens of thousands of Christians, torturing many to death, was the king over the Roman Empire which covered much of the then-known world.
Think about your own goverment. Good, bad, or atrotious, we must pray for them. Why don’t you stop and pray for your government right now?
