Election day

Tomorrow is election day in the United States. What goes on there has a huge impact on the rest of the world, so let’s spare the country, its citizens and the presidential candidates a thought and prayer as Americans cast their votes.

A few weeks ago Carlos Whittaker at Ragamuffin Soul suggested people pray for the candidates. On the eve of the election, let’s take up that prayer again. Let’s pray

  1. That both leaders grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and submit to Him and the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
  2. For their marriages, their spouses and their children.
  3. For the people around them, that they too will submit to the working of the Holy Spirit.
  4. That we will be humble and generous enough to bless both candidates, and to continue that blessing when the elections are over.
