Transforming Government Through Prayer
Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. – 1 Chronicles 29:11-12
There is a government of governments, a kingdom of kingdoms, and one source from whom all receive strength and might. Local governments are only as effective as their alignment with God’s purpose. God has great hope and purpose for every agency, representative, official, and office. There is a growing movement of local and state officials in Arkansas who are actively seeking God for the people they serve. This growing community is a critical part of God’s redemptive plan for Arkansas!
God is raising up political leaders in Arkansas who lead with righteousness and demonstrate His character with their conduct. Local and state leaders are aligning with God’s purpose and seeking the blessing of God for Arkansas. This growing community is integral to God’s work Arkansas.
Prayer is the most effective way the body of Christ engages in government from a heavenly perspective. God has given the saints exclusive access to His government through prayer as his “ekklesia,” or governing body. Paul instructs Timothy that the church should engage in politics not along party lines but along the principles and values of righteousness.
