Prayer for the election - 3

We should pray that God would show us how to think, live and love in a kingdom that is not yet of Christ.

Since there is no earthly government that is not flawed, we need wisdom from above to engage in this world in a Christ-honoring way.
Revelation 11:15 Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.”

1 Peter 2:12 Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.
