- How often do you think our country's presidents prayed?
- Do you pray for our nation's leaders?
- In what ways do think God helps those leaders?
Reading: Isaiah 32: 1-8
A day has been set aside to honor the Presidents of the United States. What a responsible job they have. When you look at the presidents, I think it is very interesting to look at photographs from the beginning and end of their time in office. Most age considerably in that period of time. What stress they must feel!
And, what faith a president must have. It's lonely at the top, they say. When presidents have to make tough decisions, I know they get advice from their knowledgeable staff. But I'm sure that there have been presidents in our history who have turned to God and who have prayed about the decisions they have to make. I'm sure many have asked for guidance from God.
I think it's important to pray for our nation's leaders. They often have tough decisions to make. With God's help, they will make the right ones and lead our country according to God's will. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Pray for our nation's leaders.
