Prayer for the Elections

Regarding the upcoming elections, prayerfully agree with me that:

  • We vote for a person of decency and honor (integrity matters)
  • We vote for someone that cannot be bought or sold (crony capitalism is evil)
  • We don’t jump from the frying pan of failed government to the fire of another chameleon who changes colors at will (the political spirit)
  • We remember that not everyone in Washington DC has been part of the problem—be wise and discerning (God has been sending some good men and women to DC)
  • We vote for humility (which God exalts), morality and righteousness (which exalts a nation)
  • We choose substance and specific ideas over shallow rhetoric, fame, showbiz events and exciting promises (does anyone remember ’08?)
  • We vote for a strict constitutionalist (it was born through prayer and based on scripture)
  • We remember that we are also voting for the next 2-3 Supreme Court Justices, who will undoubtedly shape our nation and lives for decades! (they could possibly do more good or bad for our nation than the next president)
  • We vote for an uncompromising, consistent, radically pro-life person (we MUST have this)
  • By God’s grace we end up with a born-again, praying, Bible-reading, moral, humble, honest and wise person in the White House

Be very careful. Pray. Listen to your heart where Holy Spirit lives. I promise you—we’re voting for the destiny of our nation.

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34; NASB)

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the destiny of our nation is at stake. I pray that Your people will seek the Lord today and vote for a person of decency and honor, who cannot be bought or sold. I pray that we don’t jump from the frying pan of failed government to the fire of another chameleon who changes colors at will. Help me remember that not everyone in Washington, D. C., has been part of the problem, but that You have been sending some good men and women there. Help us to vote for those who are humble, for God exalts the humble, and for morality and righteousness, for that exalts a nation. Help us to choose substance and specific ideas over shallow rhetoric, fame, showbiz events and exciting promises. I pray that we vote for a strict constitutionalist, as our Constitution was born through prayer and based on scripture. Lord, as we vote for a future presidential candidate, we are also voting for the next 2-3 Supreme Court Justices, who will undoubtedly shape our nation and lives for decades! They could possibly do more good or bad for our nation than the next president.  Please help us to vote for an uncompromising, consistent, radically pro-life person—we MUST have this, Lord! Father, by Your great grace we will end up with a born-again, praying, Bible-reading, moral, humble, honest and wise person in the White House. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Your people can hear Your voice and vote to turn our nation toward righteousness.

Pray God’s Word

To be sure our prayers are aligned with the will of God, we can pray directly from Scriptures. Jesus, when tempted by the devil, quoted God’s Word to defeat him: “It is written…” It is also the strongest weapon in our spiritual arsenal. Whatever prayer burden we are carrying today—we can be in agreement with Him when we pray from His Word…Scripture.1 (Quin Sherrer)2

“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword…piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit…able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Lord, show me Scriptures to pray over my situation or (name prayer focus).
  • Help me to move in faith, not fear.
  • God, turn our difficulties (name them) into opportunities!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, thank You for the Bible, which is packed with wonderful promises! Build my faith as I trust You with the circumstances I am facing—as well as for my country. Give me scriptures to pray over each and every circumstance. Thank You for answering my prayers in Your perfect way and timing, which is always best. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s Word is the sword I will use to pray into the most challenging situations that I and my nation face!

Pastors—God’s Front Line

Pastors are in the forefront in America’s communities—leading and teaching their people how to exhibit God’s heart of compassion, mercy and grace. They call us to acknowledge our responsibility to share the gospel, feed the hungry, clothe the poor. They marry us and bury us. They preach, counsel, visit the sick and oversee countless details. Let’s remember to pray daily for them. (Quin Sherrer)1

Scripture: “With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, my words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel.” (Ephesians 6:18-19; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for the pastors you know that they may be bold in sharing Biblical truths in the pulpit and community.
  • Ask the Lord to let peace reign in their homes.
  • Pray protection over them and bless their families.
  • Ask the Lord to send the Holy Spirit to encourage and guide them in all their decisions.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, thank you for the pastors who intercede in prayer for our needs and concerns and also for our nation. Give them wisdom beyond their experience for the tasks they daily face. Meet their spiritual, physical, and emotional needs. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

May our nation’s pastors feel loved, and be strengthened and renewed by our intercession for them today!
