40 Days of Prayer - Day 22


Consistency


Titus 1:7-9
…be blameless, as a steward of God, … hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled, holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.

Founding Father Quote:
“The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them. . . . Christians have been exceedingly guilty in this matter. But the time has come when they must act differently. . . . Christians seem to act as if they thought God did not see what they do in politics. But I tell you He does see it, and He will bless or curse this nation according to the course they [Christians] take [in politics].”
-Charles Finney

Prayer:
Lord, You are always just, merciful, loving and wise.  Your Word says that You are the same yesterday, today and forever.  You are unchanging and Your mercy is renewed for us each and every morning.  Your love for us never fails.  But we have failed You, and ask for Your forgiveness.  We have not been steadfast in our choices, always making the extra effort to stand for what is right and pure.  May we live according to the example You have sent in Your Word.  May our light so shine before men that all would see and know Your glory, that all would seek Your salvation.  We will no longer allow the mandates of society or busy schedules to allow us to slip into a place of complacency.  From this day forth, we choose to vote according to the commands found in Your Word.  We are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ!  Amen.
