I Timothy 2:1-3 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour”
Section One of the Twentieth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states:
“The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January, of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall then begin.”
The 115th Congress began its term earlier this week. Our 45th President will begin his term in a couple weeks. The election is the easy part, but the governing is the hard part. Whatever time you invested in prayer and fasting for the election should be dwarfed by the amount of prayer and fasting you should invest for the governing. After all, prayer is an investment that can pay massive dividends.
A week before our nation’s first inauguration, the New York Daily Advertiser announced the following:
“On the morning of the day on which our illustrious President will be invested with his office, the bells will ring at nine o’clock, when the people may go up to the house of God and in a solemn manner commit the new government, with its important train of consequences, to the holy protection and blessing of the Most High.”
May we do the same, on Inauguration Day and every day to follow.
PLEASE PRAY DAILY AND FERVENTLY FOR THE 115TH CONGRESS AND THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. We must commit the new government, with its important train of consequences, to the holy protection and blessing of the Most High!
