Kapuso TV host Kuya Kim Atienza has defended his stance in praying for the president-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

In his tweet on Monday, May 30, he reiterated that the Presidency is God-ordained, and it is our Christian duty to pray for and honor those who are put into power.



“Just doing what my Lord wants me to do. You may or may not agree but we are to pray for and honor those who are put in power. The presidency is God ordained. If he succeeds, the country succeeds. If he fails, we all fail.”

Kuya Kim has made a buzz on social media after heeding the call of Marcos Jr. to pray for him and his administration.

After his first press briefing with a select media organization following his proclamation as the next president of the country on Thursday, May 26, Marcos Jr. asked every Filipino to pray for him as he governed the country cause his success would also mean the success of the nation.

In response, Kuya Kim Atienza shared a bible verse on Instagram about praying for kings and those in authority.

Meanwhile, in further defending his stance, Kuya Kim shared Romans 13:1 “for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

Kuya Kim also used King David as an example, to prove that God uses flawed people and sinners for his divine purpose.

“Romans 13:1– for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. This verse is difficult even for diehard Christians, but God uses flawed people for His divine purpose. King David was flawed and was a sinner.”

Aside from King David, Kuya Kim also mentioned the tyrant King Nebuchadnezzar who according to Jeremiah 27:6 was called by God his servant.

“It’s funny how Yahweh called the tyrannical king Nebuchadnezzar “my servant” (Jeremiah 27:6) God uses the most unlikely, flawed people for His purpose we may or may not see in our lifetime. All in His time. Be well.”
