As we continue to pray for this nation and the important upcoming elections…

We can rest assured in this one truth: No matter what, Jesus Christ is the ONE who ultimately reigns!

For to us a Child is born,
to us a Son is given;
and the government shall be upon His shoulder,
and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God,
Everlasting Father [of Eternity],
Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6 (Amp)

So, as we pray toward the upcoming election day, here are some things to lay before the feet of Jesus:

Pray that God’s Spirit will miraculously over-shadow voting booths across America.
Pray that voters will hear and follow God’s guidance, not political parties or human reasoning.
(Proverbs 20:27; Acts 5:29; Romans 13:11; Ephesians 5:15-17)

Plead for God’s merciful grace on a nation
and many churches that are under His righteous judgment
(2 Chronicles 7:14; Psalm 85:4-7; Daniel 9:18-19; Hebrews 4:16; James 4:8-10; 1 Peter 4:17)

(and From Max Lucado’s 40 Days of Prayer)

Dear Heavenly Father,

You have given us this promise: “…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

So, we pray to you. We turn from evil and look to you, our God. Please:

Unite us

Strengthen us

Appoint and anoint our next president {and may I add… all other elected officials}

In the name of Christ we pray,

  1. Amen – and follow this exhortation to matter what results from this election:

    I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
    (1 Timothy 2:1-2 KJV)
