Pray During a Coup d’etat

So Jehu son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi, conspired against Joram. 2 Kings 9:14

There’s a general principle in Scripture (and in life) that goes like this: if you live by the sword you’ll die by the sword. There were dozens of passages in Kings that I could use to illustrate this. If someone overthrows the reigning king, there’s a good chance that he will be overthrown in the same manner.

We don’t have to look far to see that even today in our modern world. We call it a coup d’etat or a coup. When you hear of a coup occurring, pray. Pray for the church in that country. Pray for Christian leaders to continue preaching the Word of God. Pray that the Church will be the voice of sanity in those times.
