City Transformation: Righteous Government
- Pray for righteousness in the discussions among and decisions made by our city council. Also pray that all public interests would be fairly served and not just the interests of the more influential.
We are praying this week for righteousness in our city leadership. The Koreans have a proverb that says if there is clean water upstream then there will be clean water downstream. Governing authority is God’s idea, but it is up to us to desire and pray for righteousness in our leadership.
“Righteousness exalts a nation [and a city].” –Prov 14:34
“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except by God’s appointment, and the authorities that exist have been instituted by God.” –Rom 13:1
