During one of the university lecturers’ strikes, some brethren at the Student’s Fellowship blamed the government for being insensitive to the student’s plight. One of them who did not join the discussion challenged them if they ever remembered to pray for the government or leaders. They realized their ignorance and were silent.

Many Christians seek solutions to national problems in the wrong way just because we lack understanding of the biblical approach. We complain, debate, argue, and murmur about the problems of the nation. We abuse and at times curse the political leaders because of their poor performance. Is that what the Scripture commands us to do? The biblical injunction is very clear; we should pray for all people especially those in various leadership positions so “that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” Many of us have read this passage several times but only a few put it into practice. The prayer for our leaders determines the level of peace we will enjoy

Do not blame or curse leaders for the woes of the nation rather pray for them. Decide to mobilize other Christians around you to do the same. We must pray for our leaders; let us obey God. We must pray for our leaders; let us obey God.
