The Bible says in a multitude of counselors, there is safety (Prov 11:14, 15:22). It also says that we should pray for all who in authority that we may live peaceful and quiet lives (2 Tim 2:2). In that regard, I also pray for the President's staff, the Congress, and the Supreme Court.
I believe that the "authority" outlined in Chapter 13 of Romans doesn't stop at the three branches of government. It also extends to government agencies.
At the time of this writing, the president has been impeached, and we are awaiting the outcome of the trial in the Senate. The whole impeachment process started with a "whistleblower" from a government agency then grew to include testimony from members of other government agencies, most notably the State Department. These brave men and women helped to bring out the truth of the President's intentions in dealing with Ukraine. I look at this as an answer to prayer.
My prayer is that God, in His mercy, will continue to raise up righteous men and women in authority with the courage to confront the President, amidst the vast sea of men and women in authority in the government and in the Church, who are afraid to.
Ezekiel 22:30, (World English Bible) says, "I sought for a man among them, who should build up the wall, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found none.” I do not believe that God would have had to raise up men and women in our government agencies to check the President's misconduct if our Christian and nationally elected leaders would have used their considerable influence collectively to do so.
