“What are we going to do about the president?” asked my minister friend.
His question took me by surprise. And though many years – and presidential administrations – have passed since its asking, my response would be the same today.
“Our responsibility is to pray for the president,” I replied, basing my answer on Paul’s call for patriotic praying. In his words we’re to pray for all who are in authority that we may live quiet and peaceable lives (1Timothy 2:2).
If my answer seems too simple, consider what it demands.
Prayer demands faith.
