Praying for Kings

by Pastor Steve Ellison

I am inflicted with the same disease that you have. We resist and rebel against authority. We just do not want anyone telling us what to do. However, God has made it pretty plain that authority has been put in place by Him and for our benefit.

ShepherdCalls_WPAt one time, a downtown church accommodated 2,000 plus members each Sunday. Then, in 1979, it closed. That’s the year our family moved to Kansas City.
