(UPDATE: WHHOOOOOPPPPSSS! I just realized that this was supposed to be in the second half of the month on the blog contest winner, so I picked a third winner and she will also get a $5 gift certificate. The third winner is the 4th comment on the 24th of July. Congratulations to her too!!!!)
The winner of the $5.00 gift certificate for purchasing at the Audrey Jeanne’s Blog store is Calikat!
The winner of the $5.00 gift certificate in the blog contest drawing is the ninth comment on the 11th day of July. All you have to do is click on the calendar (go back to July) and click on the 11th and you’ll be able to count down on the comments to the 9th entry. Congratulations to the both of them!!!
SCRIPTURE: 1 Tim 2:1-2 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. NIV
PRAYER: Lord, remind us to pray for our nation’s leaders frequently. We forget and so often we complain about them more than we pray for them. Complaining doesn’t seem to bring much change, but prayer will!
As our nation (USA) prepares to elect new government officials this fall, please give us the officials that will be a blessing to your people and to your kingdom. Lord, please give us the rulers we need not necessarily the rulers we think we need! For those in other nations as well, raise up godly leaders that will rule in wisdom, with sound governmental principles and bring peace and quiet to their lands. AMEN
