Hey guys. If you read the paper, and you should, then you’ve been following our city’s desire to govern with more autonomy. Huntington has applied to be a pilot city in WV for what is known as Home Rule. The HD article that explains the process in detail is here:
The Bible tells us in 1 Timothy:
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
So, pause and pray that God would bless our city through whatever means, whether its home rule or not. Pray that our leaders would lead well and with insight and that our city would revitalize and grow. Because God also says in Jeremiah:
Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.’
