Politics are activities used to obtain power in government or influence in society. It deals with the creation of laws, decision-making of the affairs of the nation, and ideas that will influence and promote the growth of the economy. Politics should also encompass not only these but also the body of Christ. The foundation of the government should be built on the word of God and his will for us.
As a country we need good and effective leaders to govern the country, we need leaders who will foster the growth of the nation and who will have our best interests at heart. Being a leader isn’t an easy job, it entails making life-changing decisions over the lives of billions which is why we need to pray for them. We need to pray that God empowers them and that His grace should be upon their lives. Hence, the prayers for leaders of government are indispensable!
To have a thriving and successful country we need God and leaders who are spiritually inclined and also have the backing of God. Prayer is the key to everything.

33. “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear Him, on those whose hope is in His unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. We wait in hope for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. In Him, our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, LORD, even as we put our hope in You.” (Psalm 33:14-22).
