City Transformation: Righteous Government
- Pray for transitions toward righteousness in people in positions of authority in our city either through change of heart or change of person so that we may live peacefully and the Kingdom may prosper in our city for the good of all.
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
