The Bible has much to say about civil governance, our homegrown Patch blogger Mark Gunderman points out this week.
In chapter two of the Bible book of 2 Timothy, the Bible writer Paul urges prayers to be made for "kings" and all those in authority.
Gunderman encourages residents to pray for the officers in the Manassas Police Department.
