Concerning the Presidency

"Pray continuously" IThess. 5:17 &
"Then he charged them saying, "Thus you shall do in the fear of the LORD, faithfully and wholeheartedly.Whenever any dispute comes to you from your brethren who live in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and ordinances, you shall warn them so that they may not be guilty before the LORD, and wrath may not come on you and your brethren. Thus you shall do and you will not be guilty. . . . Act resolutely, and the LORD be with the upright."
2 Chronicles 19:9-11
"Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is a sin."
James 4:17
We can pray that all our leaders might:
""...Always think carefully before pronouncing judgement. Remember that [they] do not judge to please people but to please the Lord. He will be with you [them]when you[they] render verdict in each case." Pray that they also"Fear the Lord and judge with integrity, for the Lord Our God does not tolerate perverted justice, partiality..."
2 Chron. 19:6-7
