The Transfer of Power

Like many (if not most) Americans, I watched the inaugural proceedings with interest and a background of history. We have a new President. It's a great testament to the strength of our country.

As a Christian I'm instructed to pray for him and all of our leaders. Paul wrote, Pray for rulers and for all who have authority so that we can have quiet and peaceful lives full of worship and respect for God. 3This is good, and it pleases God our Savior, 4who wants all people to be saved and to know the truth. (1 Timothy 2:2-4 NCV)

How should we pray? Here's a good article that just came to me from Leadership Weekly, written by Pastor Mark Labberton.

Food for your thought and prayers.
