“Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.”
You have selected leaders for this community and nation. Help us to be obedient servants; obedient to You and those You have placed in authority. Help us to be the example of living a moral and ethical life, guided by the principles set forth in Scripture. When disagreement arises help us to disagree kindly and thoughtfully, but ultimately obeying those in authority when rules and laws do not contradict Your Word. When we are called as witnesses or to Jury service help us remember clearly, and to be fair in all decisions. Help us to be a blessing to our community and nation.
