My word teaches you to pray for those in authority over you, particularly in the realm of government. Do you find the values of those in power to be different from your own? Remember that this passage was written in a time when there was no expectation at all that the leaders would be Christians or share the values of those who believed. Are you less likely to pray for an unbelieving president? By what logic? Shouldn’t this condition make you more willing to pray for a leader? My commandment applies in both cases and you can trust me to make your prayers effective regardless of the circumstances.
