40 Days of Prayer - Day 23


Voting in Local Elections

Proverbs 20:7

The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.

Founding Father Quote:
“Now more than ever the people are responsible for the character of their Congress.  If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption.  If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. . . . If the next centennial does not find us a great nation . . . it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”
-James Garfield

Prayer:

Lord, we must consider the future of America, the future of our children and grandchildren.  When the righteous man is silent or behaves like the wicked, the next generation can only live in destruction and disgrace.  We know that nothing is impossible with You, oh Lord, and we ask that You would forgive us and help us take our country back, to restore it to the great nation it once was.  May our children come to know the America that our grandparents enjoyed.  As we think of our pending national elections, may we not forget that the local elections are also of great importance to the strength of our country.  What we build on the local level affects our cities, our states and indeed our nation.  At this point in our history, we are no longer a truly united body of states.  May Your love once again unite us.  The victory alone is Yours, and we humbly ask that You go before us to pave the way for a bright future for those we love most, our precious children.  We ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
