Most of us have an opinion of what went on simply by what was reported, including me. But as I saw the mayor with a huge look of relief on his face today, I thought of 1 Timothy 2:1-4:
As the decision was I made, I realized how little I had prayed for Rob Ford. Even though I saw his face in the news over and over again, his name was rarely said in my prayers.
Then I started to think about my mayor, and provincial and federal leaders, and the prime minister. How often do I pray for them?
Maybe you pray for government leaders daily. If you do, I'm sure they appreciate it.
If you are like me and forgot, good news, we can start today. Pray today, in fact pray now.
