“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence (1 Tim. 2:1).”It’s been a tough couple of weeks, hasn’t it? First the heartbreaking revelation of Ted Haggard’s situation, and now the stunning results of Tuesday’s elections. True, the “out with the incumbents and in with the replacements” sweep had been predicted by the political pundits and the media moguls, but to see the reality of it reflected in the Congressional change of power is sobering.
