"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls." (Jeremiah 6:16)

Rushdoony on Misguided Prayers for Government Officials

“Contemporary prayers for the president, congress, governors, and others, which ask God to bless ungodly and evil men are perversions of Paul’s meaning; we are to pray that God give them wisdom, bring them to repentance and a saving knowledge of Him, but certainly not to bless them in their evil ways.”

— R. J. Rushdoony, Commentary on Romans, page 252
