2013 Virginia General Assembly

The Virginia General Assembly convened today for its 2013 session.  Christians all across the Commonwealth must pray for them as well as the Governor.  Pray that God would turn their hearts toward righteousness and that they would govern accordingly.  Indeed, the Lord has used His sovereign hand of providence to put these men into positions of power and the church has a continual responsibility to lift them up in prayer (1 Tim. 2:1-2).

We must especially pray for the successful passage of pro-life legislation currently before them in this new session.  God instituted civil government with the primary responsibility of bearing the sword in pursuit of justice (Rom. 13:1-7).  I certainly can’t think of a greater cause in that regard than defending the lives of unborn children.  Pray for an end to the slaughter.
