Election Prayer Fall 2012

Election Prayer Fall 2012
Our Father we thank and praise You this day for Your Blessings and Grace as we walk in this world.  We praise You for the gifts of family, country, and freedom as we enjoy the bounty of our great nation.  We thank You for the guidance and protection you have afforded us and ask for Your continued Blessings.  We ask Your forgiveness for our mistakes.  We ask You to strengthen our faith.

You taught us in Mark11:23 that what we say and continue to say comes to pass and our faith grows as we hear ourselves say it.  So Father I pray to you for intervention into the hearts and minds, and mouths of those who set about to divide us.  I ask that the tongues that wag division, envy, greed, anxiousness, and unrest be quieted.  That those who manifest strife be stilled.

Holy Father I ask that You guide our nation in the last days of the current election process and reveal the hearts of those who seek to call things as they are.  I ask that truth be revealed that our citizens might see truth and justice and our country be Blessed with peace, economic recovery, and prosperity.  I pray for our many service personnel in so many nations and at home that they might be protected and Blessed.  Be with the families of those who have lost their loved ones in the current strife and grant them comfort and healing for their great sacrifice,

We ask You to and thank You for cutting off the strength of evil leaders and increasing the power of good men in their place, where ever they may be, as you tell us in Psalm 75:10.  We thank You for raising up godly men and women to govern us, as You say in Psalm 75:6-7.

Thank You Lord that we can choose to live as in 1 Thes. 4:11-12, a quiet life, minding our own business and doing our own work, so people can trust and respect us.  Give us the vision to also see and appreciate this in others.

Father I ask for unity as You tell us in Philip 2:1.  That we are brothers in You, Lord, sharing the same Spirit.  That our heats are tender, and sympathetic to each other.  That we love each other, agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, working together with one heart and mind and purpose.

We ask these things in Jesus Holy name, not my will but Thine be done.  A-men
