Victorious Prayer

Zacharias Tanee Fomum

How do you pray for the politicians and the political scenario in your country?
The following is a good lesson:

.."The Political leaders like wolves ravage the prey, shed blood, destroy souls and get dishonest gain.

These political leaders only follow the pattern set by corrupt and confused spiritual leaders.

 It is clearly a fact vindicated by history that when the Church has been holy and vigorous she has forced governments to be right. Poor spiritual conditions in the Church directly or indirectly produce poor political leadership.

The Church decides the type of government that any nation has.

This is not done by campaigning for one candidate or the other but by preaching and living the high standard of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus.

 That Gospel, preached and lived, becomes an irresistible mirror and conscience to the political leaders.

 There are far too many believers today whose preoccupation is the political analysis of the perils of the day, and too few who analyze the spiritual perils of the hours, and yet fewer still are those who are committed to turning the spiritual tide by tears and prayers."
