Day 22: Our judges and the judicial system

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father would give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. -Ephesians 1:17

 

Reflect |  We hear bickering and may even participate in debates or arguments about conservative and liberal judges. How about we pray for judges to have the mind and attitude of Christ (Philippians 2:5), and to have wisdom from above (James 1:5). That is much more valuable than a conservative or liberal label. Let’s pray for them to fly the Jesus flag in their hearts which will guide their decisions. If a follower of Jesus, our main citizenship is in heaven, and we should desire judges who are ambassadors for Christ.

 

Pray | O God, Proverbs says you can direct the heart of a king like a river, sending it any way you choose. We ask that You either appoint Christ-followers as judges, or direct non-believing judges’ hearts to make decisions based on Your ways, not the ways of our broken world system.  We trust You in this and join past believers in believing You can fix this situation of judicial decisions going against Your ways. We also join Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in saying that even if You choose not to fix this, we will never bow the knee to any but You.
