pray for all men
And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel
1 Chronicles 21:1

Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Sunday 13th June 2021

The Bible shows how evil spirits influence men
to do wrong. One of such instances is what we
read about David in our theme verse. Imagine David,
a righteous king, was moved by Satan to number
Israel against God’s will. As a result, God took actions
against Israel.
There’s another incident recorded for us in the
gospels. When Jesus made it clear to His disciples that
it was necessary for Him to die on account of our sins
and be raised back to life for our justification, Peter
took Him aside and began to “rebuke” Him, saying,
“God forbid, Lord! This must never happen to you
you’re not going to die” (Matthew 16:22).
Jesus, right away, identified that it was Satan
speaking through Peter, and the Bible says “...he
turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me,
Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest
not the things that be of God, but those that be of
men” (Matthew 16:23). So, even good men can be
moved by Satan to do or say the wrong things. That’s
why God wants us to know the truth know His Word.
When you know the truth, you can walk in the light of
it. You’ll know how to pray, and how to put a stop to
Satan’s works and influences around you.
Learn to pray for all nations of men, leaders and
those in authority as admonished in 1 Timothy 2:1-2.
Boldly declare by the Spirit that the will, plans and
purposes of God be established in and around you,
in the hearts of leaders in your community, city, town,
nation and in the organisation where you work. Pray
that they refuse to yield to negative influences that
could stir them to wickedness rather, they rule with
justice and equity, righteousness and truth. Amen.


Dear Father, I pray for leaders in my country, that they’d use their positions and authority to favour your righteous cause, that the Gospel may spread speedily and unhindered. I pray your blessings of peace and prosperity upon the nations, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
