Clinging To My Bible And My Prayers On Election Eve

Vote wisely November 6th! I am not telling you which party or which candidates to vote for or against. What I am saying is that you need to think and pray very carefully about your vote.
Christians seem to act as if they thought God did not see what they do in politics. He does see it, and He will bless or curse this nation, according to the course they take.
The Bible tells us that "He who rules over men must be just, ruling in the fear of GOD. A ruler is accountable to GOD for what he does. A ruler leads and rules under the eye of the all-seeing GOD of heaven.
The individuals who hold the presidency and Senate and Congressional seats will make decisions that impact the rest of the world. Whether those decisions help or harm the people of the world is largely determined by the choices that Americans make at the polls tomorrow. We need to pray that our choices will serve to bless the world.
The Bible commands us to pray for those who are in leadership. That's why I pray for both candidates every night. I pray that the next person to occupy the office of President will bring to this position wisdom and effectiveness. I also pray that once that person is elected he will seek GOD's counsel in everything.
Pray for American voters to recognize the profound, lasting implication of major elections. Pray for voters to have the wisdom to see through political rhetoric and clearly understand truth. Pray for evil to be exposed and integrity to be revealed. Pray that all voters will hear and follow God’s guidance, not political parties or human reasoning.
Above all else pray that the results of the 2012 elections will please the Lord and release His blessing over this nation.
