The Scriptures are clear that civil government is an institution and process that God the Creator has given to mankind. The Constitution provides "We the People" with a representative body of government, a legislative branch called The Congress. Dissatisfaction with the Congress is at an all-time high. The responsibilities facing this Congress are even higher. Citizen protests and outcry can be heard in every city and town but where is the Church? Where are the people called to intercede on behalf of their neighbors, especially those in authority?
"I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone - for kings and those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." (I Timothy 2.1)
Every day we will pray for the Congress as a body and for a handful of specific members by name. We will cover every name in prayer over the 40 days. Every day a short list of members names will appear at APRoundtable.org. We will simply pray through the list of names each day. At the end of 40 days we will have lifted every seat of the Congress in prayer.
As we pray we will also wait quietly before the Lord asking His Spirit to open our minds to His perspective. As we pray for Congress we are laying the nation and our own lives open to God as well. Our prayer remains: "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
