We need to pray for the place where we live. If we have been listening to God we will be where He wants us to be. Those in authority do not have enough wisdom of themselves. We should be praying that they will recognise their need of Him.

‘Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it because if it prospers you too will prosper.’ Jeremiah 29:7
