Pray for Civil Rulers!

Pray “For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” (1 Tim. 2:2) “It is easy to criticize and find fault with the conduct of our civil rulers, and write furious articles against them in newspapers, or make violent speeches about them on platforms. To expect perfection in our rulers, is senseless and unreasonable. If we desire them to exhibit more wisdom, we must pray for them more, and criticize less.” (J. C. Ryle) “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;” (1 Tim. 2:1)
