Ecclesiastes 10:20 Curse not the king, no not even in your thought; and curse not the rich in your bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which has wings shall tell the matter.

Our words have power (Prov. 18:21). With this powerful tool, we’re instructed to not curse the king. For most of us, we don’t have a king, but we do have a president. Whether you agree with their policies or not, we have a mandate to keep negative words away from their lives.

Why? Because whether we like them or not, they have been put in charge over the country where we reside. They make decisions that can affect our way of living. If we’re hoping they fail or die, what type of life do we expect to have? What type of love are we showing?

Let’s pray that they operate in the spirit of wisdom, pray that their decisions are Spirit led, and pray for peace in their lives. As believers, it’s the best thing we can do for our leaders.
