For God's Kingdom

Today's #psalmsjourney post will be short. Psalm 72 is a prayer for the king, so how about we pray for our governments?

The first thing the psalmist prays for is justice. May the king rule with justice, protecting all those who are weak, ending oppression.

And I believe that's what God's kingdom is like. Justice. No suffering. So when we pray for the leaders of this world to rule with justice, what we're really praying is "your kingdom come, your will be done."

Amen to that.
