Like so many of you, I’m deeply troubled by what’s happening in Washington D.C., including the most recent development.

Today’s impeachment of President Donald J. Trump by the Democrats in the House marks the continuation and deepening of a dangerous cultural and partisan divide in our country.

The process now moves on to the Senate, where Majority Leader McConnell has pledged to conduct a fair and speedy trial.

Scripture commands Christians to pray for “all those in authority that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (1 Timothy 2:2), and so we must continue committing this entire uneven episode in our nation’s history to the sovereignty of an all-powerful and all-knowing God.  

It was wise King Solomon who wrote long ago, “Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand” (Proverbs 19:21).

Please join me in praying for a just and swift resolution of this process and for protection, wisdom and strength for President Trump as well as the members of the United States Congress.
