40 Days of Praying

For Fair Elections

By September 30, 2020No Comments

Our right to vote for who will represent us in our government is one of our most cherished privileges as citizens of the United States. It affirms the biblical concept that God has called every person to rule the world on His behalf (Gen. 1:27–28). Today, Americans enjoy this right by the blood, sweat, and tears of those who fought for our freedom—both in our military and through courageous civil rights movements.

But this right exists only if our elections are kept fair and legitimate. The United States is powerful and wealthy. Such power and wealth attract those who would steal it by fraud. We must be vigilant against such thieves, and we must be good stewards of the blessings God has given to us. Pray for voter fraud to be exposed and for voter registrars and election officials to be upstanding and truthful. Report any suspicious activities you see to authorities, and consider applying to work at the polls in your next election. This is our nation, and God has called us to safeguard fairness in our election process.

A Prayer for America

Heavenly Father, You have called Your children to rule Your world with wisdom and integrity. You care very much that justice and honesty prevail in all circumstances. No matter is too small or too big for You. Our nation’s forefathers fought and died so that we could live and worship in freedom. Help me to do my part to ensure that blessing for our nation’s children and grandchildren. Please keep our country’s elections fair and honest. Put the fear of You into the hearts of election officials. May election laws and results be honored and righteousness prevail as we look forward to Your future, perfect reign, Lord Jesus. In Your name I pray, Lord Jesus. Amen.

A just balance and scales belong to the Lord;

All the weights of the bag are His concern.
