Praying for Politicians - UK
Praying for Politicians is an initiative with the sole aim of praying for all UK politicians from across parties.
We follow the words in 1 Timothy 2:1-4
"Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."
We need to pray for the those in authority. In Christian life we appreciate that words are powerful. They can build and they can destroy. Most politicians receive a lot of negativity but let's pray as instructed.
