THEME: CHURCH AND POLITICS
“Yet having learned who Mordecai’s people were, he scorned the idea of killing only Mordecai. Instead Haman looked for a way to destroy all Mordecai’s people, the Jews, throughout the whole kingdom of Xerxes.”
-Political sensitizers are active political participants who give advice to the public on political matters. These can be social groups, activists, civic education groups, political experts, church leaders, journalists etc. Some of them are Christians and profess their faith in God. Most often they speak about social economic issues that affect the public. Haman who was king Xerxes senior-most official who plotted to kill all the Jews when Mordecai could not pay homage to him. Haman was a proud and self absorbed leader who expected everyone to kneel down for him. Mordecai on the other hand was quick to disburse true information on the ongoing plot against the Jews, to Esther. Queen Esther then prayed, fasted and approached the King thus overturning the whole matter. Mordecai shows us how politically active he was in being a sensitizer in the true, right and Godly way. We are called to spread the gospel of peace during this time of elections in the societies we live in.
Dear Almighty Father, we come before Your presence today with hearts of thanksgiving and adoration. We praise You and worship You for You have done great things in our lives and all around us. Father You are worthy of all our praise. We thank You and bless Your Mighty name today. Father may You forgive us from all our iniquities and wash us with Your precious blood. Father we repent for the times we have participated in negative incitement to the public and people around us. We humbly ask that You put a Spirit of peace within us and guide us in your statutes. May You visit us and take over the political affairs of the nation, leading us in Your divine will. May You put the right advisors and political sensitizers in our nation. We ask You to take over all and be enthroned. May You remember all families, societies and the nation at large, healing the sick, providing for those who lack and bringing restoration to our land in all ways. You are a faithful God and we thank for we know You have heard us and will do according to Your will. We pray this in Jesus Name, Amen.
