*NATION BUILDING & PRAYERS* (II)
_Key Bible Text:_
*I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.* (1 Timothy 2:1-2 (KJV))
So does prayer help Nation Building? Or better put, is praying a good response from good citizens for the good of their nation and its development? Yes. As believers, we pray as a way of life. Hence, it should come naturally to us to pray against insecurity, against corruption, and against any backward state of affairs in the nation.
Haven said that, does prayer stand as the only course of action the scripture advised us to do? No. There are other direct and indirect instructions from scripture all amounting to one thing: we watch and pray so that we take corresponding actions. For instance, if we had not been voting, we should start doing so. If we had voted in a government that turned out to be irresponsible and selfish, we should prayerfully prepare and ensure we vote them out with greater force and passion.
If we don't usually take time to listen to political conversations and programs, how do we then watch and pray and take right steps when the time comes? If we don't join political parties and non-partisan groups that aim at influencing better leadership for the nation, what's the goal of only making prayers and never lifting a hand to work out what we are praying?!
When you read of negative plots on social media and so called conspiracy theories or other seemingly false claims, what should you do? Pray against that which is negative and seek to find out the truth from other sources as much as you can. And should we all prepare to leave our nation as a second plan? Well, it is not possible for all to leave hence, we should rather do what we can while we prepare ourselves for what we can't avoid. In all, we can't lose hope because there is a God that rules in the affairs of men and that God is our God and He is a good God.
*As we hope in the Lord, let's also walk out our political salvation with fear and trembling for it is the will of God that we should occupy till He returns.*
