40 Days of Prayer - Day 21



Voting in National Elections

Psalm 37:34-36

Wait on the LORD, and keep His way, and He shall exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.  I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a native green tree, yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more; Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.

Founding Father Quote:
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual - or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.”
-Samuel Adams

Prayer:

Father, may our hearts be filled with Your love and Your wisdom as we enter this election season.  Though the enemy would like nothing better than to utterly destroy us as a nation, we ask that You begin to slay our enemies one by one.  Give us courage and righteous indignation, to vote the principles found in Your Word.  May we be bold in our stance, and obedient to Your commands.  Thank You for the privilege of voting, a freedom we often take for granted.  As we begin to vote into office those men and women who exalt You, may You alone be glorified.  May we turn from our sinful ways as a nation and once again return to the protection of Your sheltering wing.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
