“Many seek an audience with a ruler, but it is from the Lord that one gets justice” (Proverbs 29:26).
Have you ever signed an online petition, written to a government department, or seen your MP about a problem? If you have, why not consider praying about the problem too?
I remember seeing my MP about a problem, and all she was interested in was that I was unemployed. That wasn’t what I’d gone to see her about, but it fitted in better with her party’s policy. Your MP may have an agenda, but so does God. His agenda is your wellbeing. When someone’s important to you, you want to spend time with them. You love to hear their voice, and you want to know what they’re thinking. That’s how God is with us; He loves and delights in us, so let’s share our lives with Him.
