Let's Write Our Political Leaders and Encourage Them
A reader says: Let's bless our political leaders and tell them we are praying for them.


As I was praying for our country and it's leaders, the Lord reminded me that most of the time when we correspond with our leaders in government we have a habit of complaining and being upset with the laws and decisions they make. We hardly ever say anything to encourage them.

This encouragement would be for all our leaders, not just the ones we like.

I have an idea: if a lot of Christians e-mailed them on a regular basis to encourage them and let them know we are praying for them and asking God to be with them to give them wisdom in every decision they make, I think it would make a difference. We could write to everyone, from the prime minister to our own representative in Parliament. This encouragementwould be for all our leaders, not just the ones we like.

The Bible tells us that we are to pray or our leadership, and I feel this could help in making major decisions. I am hoping as a Christian community we could do this on a regular basis.
