Be a part of history!



History will be made in this election. Please vote! I hear so many people say that their vote doesn't really count, but it does! I wouldn't be surprised if records are broken this year at the polls with voter turnout. I'm kicking myself that I didn't vote early, because I'll now be one of the lucky ones standing in line with a 2-year-old in tow. But, that will not stop me! I just feel sorry for those around me who will experience the wait with me.

In the meantime, let's join together in prayer for this election. I found this prayer guide on a Houston news website of all places when googling presidential election prayer guide. Let's join together in prayer with words from Scripture as our foundation...

Prayer Guide for the Presidential Election 

It is critical that Christians pray for the upoming presidential election. There is amazing power in united prayer. Please pray daily until the election. Pray with others whenever possible. The power of prayer can overcome any obstacle or ungodly influence and, indeed, do great things!

2 Kings 13:16 - Pray that the Lord would put His hands on the man of His choice for president (and his team) and guide them in this election. 

Proverbs 1:5-6 - Pray that God's man will listen with discernment, add to his knowledge, and receive wise counsel in this campaign. 

John 16:33 - Pray that the man of God's choice would be given wisdom and ability from the Lord to overcome any obstacle or difficulty during this campaign.

Luke 12:54-57 – Pray that God's man and our nation will be discerning and do what is right.

At my church on Sunday, there was a publication that was made available from Wallbuilders.com. It listed how each of the candidates stand on 14 key issues. It was very scary to read. PLEASE pray for this election.

If you'd like to read the publication I mentioned, here's a link: http://wallbuilders.com/LIBissuesArticles.asp?id=5386
