Teaching Goal: Pray for those in authority.

Scripture: Romans 13:1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

I Timothy 2:1-2 I urge, then, Iirst of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority

II Chronicles 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

A. Read the scriptures listed above or put them into your own words. The Bible tells us to pray for those in authority and for those in government. Today we are going to write the President of the United States. We are going to write down our prayers, mail it to him and let him know we are praying for him. (Younger Kids) Adults may need to write down the prayer for younger children. Younger children may also want to color pictures to be included with the prayer.
