Prayer Point: January 16, 2013
Week 3 Focus: The Legislature
The approval rating of Congress is moving toward the single digits* and it’s been a long time since I’ve overheard someone in a grocery store line talking about how much they love the Legislature. But, as Christians, are called to pray for our nation’s leaders even when we’re not particularly happy with them. In this third week of praying for the nation, we will focus on the Legislature. Please remember to pray for the members of Congress and their families. Pray especially for your own state’s representatives and senators. You may want to consider sending them an encouraging note and let them know you’re praying for them. They don’t get a lot of “happy” mail.
For those using our weekly devotional, American Psalms: Prayers for the Christian Patriot, there’s a prayer for the Legislature on page 19 (Also available on Kindle).
*Both Gallup and the Huffington Post reported the approval rating of Congress had dropped to 14% at the beginning of 2013. Prayer can make a difference in their lives and in the life of our nation.
