Praying for Our President-Elect

November 14, 2016

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

What a great Scripture to put into practice, especially following the election results of last week. Like most Bible-believing Christians, I can think of many biblical convictions that I wish our President-elect had, and about which we must fervently pray. But today I think I will focus on obedience to the above Scripture and cultivate the kind of thankfulness that leads to a quiet, peaceable life.

Maybe God is calling you to pray, to really intercede—to kneel down and pray for our President-elect, the selection of his Cabinet, and our Congress; to pray for your country, because it has great needs.

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Romans 13:1

Remember where power ultimately comes from—seek the Lord for His will, our families & our country.

That’s good to know, isn’t it? Our President-elect needs our prayers—for strength to maintain the convictions he holds which are in keeping with God’s will for our nation, for the wisdom to realize where his beliefs are not according to God’s plan, and for the courage to change. May he—and might we all—remember where power ultimately comes from, and seek the Lord daily for His will and everything we need, for our families, and for our country.


I wrote those words 8 years ago this week, in regard to the first election of President Obama—and it is as true today as it was then. Parties come and parties go. Some people are thrilled with the outcome of the election and some are distraught. But we are to be above all of that, because kings and rulers are nothing except as they submit themselves to the sovereign hand of Almighty God.

Whether you believe God has appointed the current outcomes to judge our country or to bless our country, does not matter that much in the end. We are called to pray and to keep our focus on the Lord.

We prayed this together as a church this weekend, and I invite you to make it your own. Read More

The Danger of Reductionism in Preaching

November 09, 2016

As a recovering addict of overstatement, I want to be careful in the words I choose to warn fellow ministers about the danger of reductionism in our preaching and teaching. Dictionary.com defines reductionism as: “The practice of simplifying a complex idea, issue, condition, or the like, especially to the point of minimizing, obscuring, or distorting it.” Few things discourage young Christians, or those considering the faith, more than an over simplification of the many complex issues current residents of this planet are grappling with.

Is Donald Trump Truly Repentant and Does It Even Matter?

October 11, 2016

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

I am not a politician or a pundit. I am a preacher and a pastor, so I am praying for revival in America—and God can do it through any economic policy, any configuration of the Supreme Court, and any person in the White house, if they and we all repent. Read More
