Today, the Irish Taoiseach (prime minister), Bertie Ahern, announced his resignation, effective May 6th. A few weeks ago Northern Ireland's First Minister, Ian Paisley, announced his resignation, also effective in May.
In January the Lord spoke to me in different ways several times about praying for righteous leaders. This was from one of our leaders at a Boiler Room meeting, "Obscure, praying people are key to seeing God's will be done in the nations." This was from a conversation with my sister about the crisis in Kenya, "Praying for righteous leaders in the developing world to affect change and sustainable peace/governments instead of war..." (I'm thinking about Zimbabwe right now.)
This is clearly a really important time to be praying, interceding on behalf of our countries and the world. We need to rise up and take our stand, calling for men and women of integrity to be put into key government positions. We need to use our authority as children of God and citizens of this world to call the Lords' elect into leadership of our nations.
