A Prayer for the Election/Get Out to Vote - October 28th
By: Rev. Michael Lee, Joshua Tabernacle Baptist Church, Louisville, KY
Heavenly Father, we thank you for all of the grace and mercy you have bestowed upon us. We thank you for allowing us to live in one of the greatest nations in history at one of the greatest times in history. We understand the awesome responsibility that you have given us to elect our own leaders. Oh Father, we pray that as we approach Election Day, that you will guide us with your divine insight and wisdom to choose those leaders who are after your own heart. Help us to choose leaders who will govern according to your will and way. Oh Lord, please bless each of the candidates and guide our chosen leaders by your divine providence. Empower them with hearts for all of the people, especially those who are downtrodden and forgotten, locked up and locked out, and for the defenseless.
Oh Lord, indeed you have given us an awesome responsibility, so I beseech you to help us to move out in mass as a mighty army inspired by you to every polling place come rain or shine. Mobilize us, Oh God as one body acting in unison to bring about your divine will in this country. We humbly place ourselves into your hands knowing that no matter who becomes president, senator, judge, or elected official, who has confessional authority, that Jesus is still on the throne and your will will be done. It is in the matchless and marvelous name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
