Dear fellow Ohioans, have you given thanks to God for the Governor he has given you at this crucial time in history? Have you prayed for him lately? He is under great pressure and prayer makes all the difference. He’s our Governor. Whatever your politics or religion, he’s trying to be there for you! He needs you right now! Pray for him, and all that govern in Ohio. Our Governor is clearly a conscientious man who truly loves Ohio and thinks highly of Ohioans because he expects good things from us. This is not an endorsement for a candidate, but praise for a duly elected governor. It’s harder and harder for one to govern in a world that’s growing increasingly more violent and godless day by day. I offer the following scriptures for your hearts consideration: 

Roman 13:7, “Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to who custom: fear to who fear; honour to whom honor.” 

I Timothy 2:1-3, “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. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior;…”

I Peter 2:13, 14, “Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king as supreme; or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well”; and

I Peter 2:17, “Honour all. Love the brotherhood. Fear God, Honour the king.”

And, may God give grace to all to be nothing like what’s written in II Peter 2:10, “But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to SPEAK EVIL OF DIGNITIES.”
