God commands us to pray for leaders.
- First of all then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.
1 Timothy 2:1,2
- When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan. Prov. 29: 2
- Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17
