Privileged!

First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, 
be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority,
so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,



Sometimes we rant and can't agree
On religion and politics
Opinion without charity
Makes people pull out stones and sticks

For Trump, Trudeau, Putin, Jong-un
We should be careful what we say
 Choosing instead to bow our head
And be prayerful for them each day

Our freedom, fought and oft died for
Is nobody's inherent right
But it is everybody's charge
To pray for leaders morn-noon-night

Awful, today's state of affairs
And the lawlessness of the day
Due in large part to lack of prayers
That it is up to us to pray

Janet Martin

It is a privilege to vote!
...and a much higher privilege to
 "approach God's throne of grace with confidence,
so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."
Heb.4:16
