Praying for our city, nation and world...

Part of what makes the CSM experience unique is the opportunity to pray for the city and the people living and dwelling there.  Being in Washington, DC, we get to pray a lot for leaders and officials - not just the President, the Senate, the House, but also ambassadors and other leaders around the globe.  A local Washingtonian has written a book that is reminding the church that we are called to pray for our leaders.  The book takes a biblical approach and challenges us to pray for our President.  Much like the approach CSM takes when leading the prayer tour, the author is hoping to not spark debate or political alliances but instead spark a renewal in praying for the 44th President. 

"I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all men: for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth." 1 Timothy 2:1-4.

-Robyn Elmore, CSM Washington DC City Director
