A Call for Prayer on the Capitol Steps

Today at noon, Congressman Randy Forbes and 19 other members from both sides of the aisle will hold a press conference to call America to prayer. We ran a BreakPoint on what is called the Congressional Prayer Caucus back in August. Mark Earley commented:

What is the most powerful room in the United States Capitol? Ask some members of Congress and you would probably hear this: Room 219. It’s the room closest to the House Chamber, and its walls have been privy to some of the most pivotal discussions of our history.

Recently, however, Room 219 just got a whole lot more powerful. How so? You see, in Room 219 some of the highest elected officials of our land are bending their knees in weekly prayer gatherings—openly declaring, not their power, but their dependence on the power of God.

If you'd like to join in covering this country and its leaders in prayer you can sign up at www.prayercaucus.org. Even if you don't sign up, remember that we are instructed by Paul to pray for those in authority.

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. This is good, and pleases God our Savior (1 Tim. 2:1-3).

The press conference is a good reminder, but the notion that praying for those in authority pleases my God, is an even better one.
