Day 5

Pray for those seeking to be
elected as well as their families.
Father, we ask that those
running for office, as well as those close to them, would experience protection
from slander or any other harm.  That the
experience of seeking to serve the people through involvement in government,
might be an encouragement rather than discouragement.

Have confidence in your
leaders and submit to their
authority, because they keep watch over you as
those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a
burden,…  Hebrews 13:17
