Scripture for the day is Proverbs 8:15-16

By me kings reign
    and rulers issue decrees that are just;
16 by me princes govern,
    and nobles—all who rule on earth.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, instead of grumbling about our civic leaders, move your people to both thank you and pray for those in authority, that they would be given enough wisdom that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness (1 Timothy 2:1-2). Amen.
