Happy Election Day

Aren’t you glad to live in America?  Aren’t you glad we have the freedom to step out of our houses, travel to the polling places, and vote freely – with no intimidation or fear?

Do you support abortion?  I don’t.  But I’m glad we live in a country where we both can have and voice our opinions freely.

Raising Flag

Today I pray for honest elections.

I pray that people are waking up and seeking God concerning who to vote for.  I pray that people have not relied on the media or the newspaper or their neighbor or even their own perspectives or prior opinions to tell them how to vote.  I pray that you go to vote with confidence, knowing that you’ve researched the issues and candidates from every angle and have picked the candidates and amendments and referendums to vote for that will exalt righteousness and truth across our land.

But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. –Joshua 24:15

I pray that our country will look forward and move forward to the best days America has ever had.  I pray that God would supercede and overcome the failings and weaknesses of whichever candidate is elected.  I pray that the next President will fall humbly before God and seek His wisdom for guiding this country.

Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. –Isaiah 55:6

I pray for safety for our next President — physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.  I pray that those who oppose our country, those who seek to destroy us, would be confounded and thwarted.

No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment will be shown to be in the wrong. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD. -Isaiah 54:17

I pray that satan’s strategies for our country would be exposed and destroyed.  I pray confusion into the enemy’s camp.

Then Saul and all his men assembled and went to the battle. They found [their enemies] in total confusion, striking each other with their swords. -1 Samuel 14:20

I pray for the peace and vindication of Israel.  I pray for a President that will fight and defend Israel, no matter what the cost.

For whoever touches [Israel] touches the apple of My eye. -Zechariah 2:8

I pray for unity for democrats, for republicans, for independents to join together.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. -Galatians 3:28

I pray a hedge of protection around this nation, around our allies, around those who stand for righteousness and justice.

Those who look to Him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.

This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
He saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him,
and He delivers them.

Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.

Fear the LORD, you His saints,
for those who fear Him lack nothing.

The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
-Psalm 34:5-10

Most of all, I pray that this country will turn back to God.  Hope for this country rests solely in Him.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.  -Psalm 33:12

I’m voting for Jesus

Tomorrow is it.  Tomorrow will determine who will lead this country — and in which direction we’ll go.

I’m ready for it be over.  I’ve prayed.  I’ve researched.  I’ve prayed.  I’ve debated.  I’ve argued.  I’ve prayed.  I’ve done what I could to stand up for my personal convictions.  Now, I’m ready to see God move.

I’m tired of division.  I’m tired of arguing.  I don’t care who you are and what you believe and how much you disagree with my views.  I’m ready to love you.  For better or for worse.  This is America.  And neither of us want to see everything we’ve fought for go down the drain.

You know who I’m voting for this election? Jesus.  I want His righteousness and justice to reign in this country again.

Yes, I pray for a lot of things, but that’s what I really want.  Of course we want a President who’s going to protect our country.  But the strength and wisdom of a man will always fail.  Only God can defend us against our foes – for they are many.  Only God can bring our economy out of shambles.  He’s the One that can give us creative insight, new inventions, supernatural wisdom.  That’s what we need.  As much as I support our troops, risking their lives, fighting with such bravery in courage over there in Iraq — they cannot defeat terrorism.  They cannot scatter our enemies.  But God can.  That’s Who needs to reign in this country.  No man or woman can solve the problems we are facing.

Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.   –Isaiah 9:7

Regardless of the outcome of this election, will you commit with me to hand this great country back over to the One who established America as the country we love?  Will you commit with me to pray for our President?  Will you grit your teeth and lay down your precious opinions (trust me, I know how hard it is) to come together and unite?

The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad;
let the distant shores rejoice.

Clouds and thick darkness surround Him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.

Fire goes before him
and consumes His foes on every side.

His lightning lights up the world;
the earth sees and trembles.

The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.

The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all the peoples will see His glory.     –Psalm 97
