Pray for All People: First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. – 1 Timothy 2:1 – 2 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1Timothy2:1-2&version=ESV
We pray as our Christian calling, seeking the Lord’s direction, because it is our duty as citizens of the Kingdom.
We vote as our civic duty, for someone to fulfill a job, but only as a secondary concern.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33.
