Let’s Pray for Our Leaders

Praying hands and the Bible
With so much at stake in the world and in our nation, it is essential to pray for our leadership so that God will keep His hand of blessing on us.

WHY PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS

God wants a righteous nation.
• Psalm 33:12 – “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; the people He chose for His inheritance.”

Believers should submit to those who have authority, because God ordained leadership.
• Romans 13:1 – “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

• Hebrews 13:17 – “Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.”

• 1 Peter 2:13-14 – “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men; whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.”

We are told to pray for our leaders so it will go well with us.
• 1 Timothy 2:1-2 – “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”

God tells us our prayers will be effective.
• James 5:16-18 – “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” (more…)

God of the Underdog

As we head into a new year, let’s remember that all that is required of us in order for God to use us is our availability and obedience. We don’t have to have high status, grand ability, good looks, or a great past in order to qualify or to be chosen by God. Cosmo brings us this inspiring message. Happy New Year from Jewish Voice!

Declaration of Faith During Times of Transition

When the enemy throws obstacles in our way, particularly in times of major transition, our faith can be severely tested. That’s when we need to do what JVMI’s June Liggins instructs us to do: make a declaration of faith. We need to embrace a spiritual shift in our relationship with God to withstand Satan’s ploys.

2011: Verses for the New Year

It’s almost 2011, and that means a fresh start! What better way to ring in the New Year than with some Bible verses to stir your spirit? Since we are beginning anew, meditate on what God says about new things. Let’s all recall how He brings newness of life into our midst.

Psalm 40:3
He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him.

Isaiah 43:19
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

Ezekiel 11:19
I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. (more…)

Thanksgiving Verses

Since today is Thanksgiving, what more appropriate way to celebrate than to read God’s Word and recall the wonderful things He has done through history and for us individually? Let us never forget that He deserves all honor and praise!

With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the LORD: “He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.” And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid. — Ezra 3:11 (more…)
