DAY 3: PRAYER FOR WORLD AFFAIRS
DAN. 4:17; REV. 1:5; PROV. 21:1; DAN. 2:21
For God in Christ to rule over all world affairs (Dan. 4:17; Rev. 1:5), to turn the hearts of kings to do His will (Prov. 21:1), and to raise up and put down leaders as He sees fit (Dan. 2:21).
Dan. 4:17—This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the decision is a command of the holy ones, to the intent that the living may know that the Most High is the Ruler over the kingdom of men and gives it to whomever He wills and sets up over it the lowliest of men.
Rev. 1:5—And from Jesus Christ, the faithful Witness, the Firstborn of the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and has released us from our sins by His blood.
Prov. 21:1—The king’s heart is like streams of water in the hand of Jehovah; / He turns it wherever He wishes.
Dan. 2:21—And it is He who changes the times and seasons; / He deposes kings and causes kings to ascend. / He gives wisdom to the wise / And knowledge to those who have understanding.
Persevere in prayer.
