Prayer: Political Prayers

Children's Ministry Magazine

With "Vote for Me" signs and posters beginning to pop up everywhere we look, it's no doubt kids know that election season is right around the corner (November 4 this year). Use this time of year to help kids pray for their government officials.

Our fourth-grade class talked about ways to bring peace and justice to our community. Then they wrote letters to our governor with their concerns about issues such as drug education and enforcement, guns, and helping the poor.

The kids concluded their letters by saying they would pray for the governor and his staff. We sent the letters, and the children received a reply from the governor thanking them for their prayers. They were thrilled, and they began to have a biblical and experiential understanding of praying for authorities (1 Timothy 2:1-4).
