Heavenly Father, we pray for Romania, where laws passed today that some believe will weaken the nation’s efforts to root out high-level corruption. Lord, it has been a stressful year in Romania as citizens have sought to end government corruption. All of us in every land desire leaders who will put our nations’ best interests first and who will govern with integrity. It is frustrating that Romanian officials are no longer obliged to regulate conflicts of interest. We pray that checks will be in place preventing lawmakers from seeking their own interests as they carry out their public service. We also pray about the new law obliging judges and prosecutors to pay financial damages for judicial errors made "in bad faith or grave negligence," that it would not weaken the judicial system, but would prevent future miscarriages of justice. Lord, we pray for Romanian leaders to govern with integrity, selflessness and wisdom. We ask in Jesus’ name, amen.
