The "great white throne"

In his letters to Timothy, the Apostle Paul exhorted the followers of Christ to pray for "all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty."

Mary Baker Eddy also exhorted her church (Christian Science versus Pantheism, p. 14): "Pray for the prosperity of our country, and for her victory under arms; that justice, mercy, and peace continue to characterize her government, and that they shall rule all nations. Pray that the divine presence may still guide and bless our chief magistrate, those associated with his executive trust, and our national judiciary; give to our congress wisdom, and uphold our nation with the right arm of His righteousness." In this same message, Mrs. Eddy included a prayer and blessing for the brave men in our country's armed forces.
