Pray for Our Nation

In less than a month, our great nation will make choices that will remarkably impact us. On November 8th, we will not only vote for a President, someone to represent our country and choose five new Supreme Court Justices, but we will also vote for 34 of the 50 US Senate seats and all 435 US House of Representative seats. These are the ladies and gentlemen who write our legislation and determine the major issues Christian's are concerned about. While the discussions over a President continue to divide us, I want to encourage each one of us to be still and stand in God's presence. This is not a time to be divided but rather to be united in prayer. We need to be fervently praying for our country. We need to be praying for wisdom and discernment for all of our leaders and for ourselves as we make our own personal decisions when we go to the election polls. We need to beseech God's forgiveness for our country's folly and ask Him to place His people in places of position within our government to not only further the good of our great nation but also to do His good and pleasing will. No matter who wins, God still sits on the throne and will remain there forevermore!
