1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.
Rebuking of The Spirit of Mammon's Influence Among Politicians
The spirit of mammon deals with money and/or finances. It is heavily empowered in the political arena. The sheer breadth, scope and cost of elections give it prime territory to wield its influence on the minds and thoughts of elected officials. Campaign cycles are now virtually never ending and the concern of reelection is at the height of nearly every elected official's mind. This makes it difficult to focus on legislation without the concept of quid pro quo rising to the forefront.
Pray that this scenario will be rebuked.
That the influence of money on the minds of elected officials will be diminished.
