This is why we should pray for ALL of our political leaders and I mean ALL, so God can work!

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: He turns it where He will.

Proverbs 21:1


Think about that for a moment! God has reserved the right to override the will of a nation’s leader, if need be, to see that His people are governed according to His will. Again and again, God warned him, “Nebuchadnezzar, you’re going to lose your mind if you don’t straighten up.” And, sure enough, he went just as crazy as could be. He stayed that way for years too. Then one day he cried out to God and God heard him. Despite his status as a heathen king of a heathen nation, God intervened repeatedly in Nebuchadnezzar’s life and heard him when he finally cried out for help. Why? Because he had God’s people under his rule! That same principle still holds true today. If we’ll open the way through prayer, God will deal with our leaders!
