So we pray for our governmental leaders, for those running for office, for police and military, our pastors and church.
Pray for All People2 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3 This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
We've expanded our prayer time to pray for leaders all across our lives - those in leadership in the RV organizations to which we belong, those who own or are maintaining the campground where we are currently staying, and others who might have an influence over our ability to "live a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way".
We also pray for neighbors - those in whatever place we're camping, as well as former neighbors and friends. We pray for two boys that we are supporting through Compassion International - one in Haiti and one in Ecuador. We pray for those we know who need salvation - healing from spiritual sickness, as well as those who need healing from physical illness.
I am SO thankful to God that my sweet husband is leading me in doing this. It is amazing what God will do with a man who is submitted to His will, and wonderful to be the wife of one who lives his life first to do God's will, and then constantly expresses to me how I am God's precious gift to him. I am so thankful to God for giving me sweet Dwayne as my husband!
