Prayer for Civic Leaders

2 Samuel 15:13-14, 30; 16:5-13

David dealt with people throwing stones and dirt at him, but continued on his journey knowing the Lord would guide him. “David and his men continued on the road, while Shimei kept abreast of them on the hillside, all the while cursing and throwing stones and dirt as he went.”

Leaders often deal with people who do not support them. They have to make daily decisions on what is best for many. May our leaders have the strength to make the right decisions, even when it is difficult.
