Daily D – Psalm 95:6-7
Psalm 95:6, 7 Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if only you would hear his voice, . . .
We no longer have politics as usual. We no longer have political theater performed daily for insatiable news outlets. Instead, we have presidents and politicians calling one another enemies of the state.
We can engage. We can retreat. Or, much more helpfully, we can pray.
Turn to 1 Timothy 2:1-8. Take note of these words:
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.1 Timothy 2:1-6 NIV
Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.
1 Timothy 2:8 NIV
Today’s reading from Ezekiel 21 declares these words in verse 27:
“A ruin! A ruin! I will make it a ruin! The crown will not be restored until he to whom it rightfully belongs shall come; to him I will give it.’
Ezekiel 21:27 NIV
Let’s remember who is ultimately in charge here. Come, Lord Jesus.
I will pray for the leaders we need and to be delivered from the leaders we deserve.
Our Father, forgive us for esteeming human leaders far too highly. Forgive us for not listening for your voice and for not following your clear directions. Please lead us from where we are to where we need to be. Bless us with the leaders we need and deliver us from the leaders we deserve. Amen.

Leviticus 19:32-34 “Stand up in the presence of the elderly, and show respect for the aged. Fear your God. I am the Lord. “Do not take advantage of foreigners who live among you in your land. Treat them like native-born Israelites, and love them as you love yourself. Remember that you were once foreigners living in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.”
Luke 6:27-31 “But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, offer the other cheek also. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also. Give to anyone who asks; and when things are taken away from you, don’t try to get them back. Do to others as you would like them to do to you.”
