The most significant current events around the world include the situation happening in Iran. The political unrest amongst the people is creating civil chaos that has become quite violent. There is injustice. There is blatant dishonesty in the current government. But I forgot to pray for the people in Iran. My question is: “Is it okay to pray for political issues like the political unrest in Iran?” Some churches feel it is okay to pray for one side of the issue but this is risky. If we’re careful we probably should not pray for or against one side because we do not have any hard evidence and information regarding how the election was handled in Iran. Should we Christians take sides and pray for one government over another? I think it’s better to be careful and refrain from making public prayers for one side or another because we might have wrong information. Personally, I don’t trust all our public information and news from television or even our newspapers. Even President Obama is being more careful about his public comments and isn’t making any one-sided opinions about this issue. However, I think the one thing we can pray for is for peace and for the truth to be revealed.
