David fought many battles following God’s lead. What does God want us to do for our military? How do we fight for them in Washington while they fight for us in other countries? Do we call the Senate? Will they listen?
They will not listen— but that in no way affects the command
to speak for those who cannot.
We are admonished, huldah1776, to pray for those in authority over us, for who knows, the Lord might yet draw the wicked into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Surround our military with the hedge of protection in Psalm 91; take heart in Psalm 37 that the wicked will be vanquished; live in Proverbs 3:5-6 ~ “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths.”
2 PETER 3
8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
1 TIMOTHY 2:1-7
1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all menthe testimony given in its proper time. 7 And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostleI am telling the truth, I am not lyingand a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles.
27 All the ends of the earth
will remember and turn to the LORD,
and all the families of the nations
will bow down before him,
28 for dominion belongs to the LORD
and he rules over the nations.
2 CHRONICLES 7
14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Amen ...
