1 Timothy 2:1-2 – “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.”
I’m writing this Tuesday night with no clue how the election is turning out. There is 15 minutes left in the polls in our state.
But even though I have no clue who will be elected, I have had this on my heart – pray for whomever is elected.
We are in perilous times. People are calling right wrong. People are pleasing themselves more than God. People are killing unborn babies at an alarming rate. I could go on and on and on.
We need leaders, in all areas of government, who will look to God for wisdom and leadership. We need leaders who will preserve our freedoms that people have bled and died to maintain. We needs leaders who are not afraid to call a spade a spade. We need leaders who know they need God.
Life is too short for shoulda-woulda-couldas. We have to trust that God is in control and that even though we see insanity, He sees part of the storyline. By the time you read this, what is done, is done.
Now, we pray. Now we focus on uplifting our elected leaders to make the right choices that will keep our lives at peace with each other and with God.
