Evening Prayer

SUBMIT TO AUTHORITIES

[Romans 13:2-3; 1 Peter 2:13-14]

I pray that you will submit yourself to every authority instituted among men: whether in government or at work, or in your own home. May you accept that all in authority have been sent by God to punish those who do wrong and commend those who do right. May you never have reason to fear authorities, for only those who do wrong have reason to fear. May you always respect and submit to the authority God has placed in your life. I pray that you will not rebel against them, for if you do, you rebel against what God has instituted and bring judgment upon yourself. May you humbly submit to all in authority and do what is right.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
