City Transformation: Righteous Government
- Pray for righteousness in our local sheriff’s and police departments that there would be no corruption or unfair influence in their operations and personnel.
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
