Intercede...For All That Are In Authority

"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions,
and giving of thanks be made for all men;
For kings, and for all that are in authority;
that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty."
I Timothy 2:1,2

Do you pray for your President? Your Governor? Your city's Mayor?

Have you ever thought to pray for their wives?

Surely these ladies live under such tremendous in the spot-light...bound to rigid schedules and obligations that take them away from their homes and children.

I will never forget what the wife of our former Mayor told Mom after she (Mom) told her that she prays for her every morning: "I don't think anyone has ever prayed for me. You don't know what it does for me to know that every day someone is praying for me!"

Our annual Christmas Banquet in November is a special event to which which we invite the ladies who have served (as Mayor's wife or in some other way) our town and surrounding towns. We honor them with a special gift; and each "first lady" who has attended has received a Bible.

Below is a list of ladies whom we have invited and for whom we are praying to come. Please join us in praying that these ladies will come to the
November 18 Banquet
