Politics and Prayer

   If you're not a praying person I suggest you take up this healthy habit as our nation is on the brink of electing the most influential and powerful man on the planet.  Don't kid yourself, the one who wins the election will be the hand on the tiller of the rudder that steers our country.  So conversing with the Almighty is probably a well-advised conversation.
   In the Scriptures Paul teaches:
"I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth."  1 Timothy 2:1-3
     So I encourage you to pray for BOTH candidates!  One of these two will be the next President of the United States and thus need every prayer that can be lifted up on their behalf.  Pray that whoever is elected this November will govern our nation in a manner that aligns itself with the will of God.
    There are problems a-plenty for whoever assumes the office of the Presidency.  May the Lord grant us a leader after His own heart.  May we live quiet and peaceful  lives to His glory and the good of all.


  1. I agree! With all the mud slinging and bashing, it's hard to remember sometimes that they are both leaders and both need prayer and guidance.

  2. Good reminder, especially as many people are becoming more and more frustrated as the date approaches. :)
