“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.”
Mighty and Wise Lord,
We recognize that You have placed certain authorities over us to govern and lead us, and to provide for the public good. Grant those in authority great wisdom them to act justly in every circumstance. Surround them with godly counsel and inspire then to enact just laws and policies to bring the ultimate good to our nation and its citizens. Help us to be obedient and follow the laws put in place for the welfare of the masses. Yet, help us also recognize any deviation from your commands and remember to always act according to Your Word.
