The 2016 Election and the Power of Prayer

I don’t know what the outcome of the election this November will be, but I do know what we are called to do today. We are called to pray. Urged to pray.

It may not be something mentioned at the political debates or on the front page of the paper, but it is our responsibility. Here it is:

[box]First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way (1 Tim. 2:1–2).[/box]

We are not merely invited, but urged, in this passage to intercede, to cry out, for all “who are in high positions.” The man or woman who will be elected President of the United States will make decisions that (if the Lord does not return soon) will impact multiple generations.

I’ve got a few thoughts on how to impact this election—through prayer! Today, I hope you’ll join me over on the True Woman Blog as I share with you some ways we can intercede for our nation!
