The Glory of a Godly King

In Psalm 72, Solomon exhorts us that prayer should be offered for godly leaders. The Psalm then explains why God cares about this: when godly rulers flourish, godliness spreads, and when godliness spreads, God gets more glory. Of course, nowhere is this seen more clearly than in the reign of Jesus Christ, the King of Kings. When we pray “Thy kingdom come”, we are praying for justice, prosperity, safety, and peace to spread from the river to the ends of the earth. And so we pray this morning that the gospel would transform our rulers into servants of the King who bring blessings to men, thereby filling the earth with God’s glory.
