Christians and support for leaders

LET me take a moment to point out that there is no authority in scripture to criticise  government but there is an obligation to pray for it. Why do Christians in Nigeria find it so hard to believe that so much depends on our praying?

We believe that what goes on is beyond our control. There is nothing we can do about the government or prejudice or hatred or whatever ills we see around us. We shrug our shoulders; we criticise, we complain but we fail to pray. This is why we see moral and ethical decline, both in leadership and in national culture.

We have not understood the limitless possibilities of praying according to God’s will as revealed in his word. Nigerian

Christians need to wake up.
