“The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.” (1 Timothy 2:1-3, The Message)
As disciples of Jesus, we are we instructed to stay engaged as persons devoted to prayer — at all times and for all people.
Do not be discouraged because it seems that a prayer is too small to make any difference. Do not be discouraged because it seems that a prayer is too private to be heard. Great floods begin with raindrops; and the One who hears our prayer sustains the universe.
Pray first. Pray often. Pray for everyone. – Luther
