This was written on Monday night before the election.

Do you know that there is a nationwide group of Christians who have been praying for this election? It is known as the Presidential Prayer Team and they are praying for the entire election process--the candidates, campaigns and all of it. We will pray that all Americans show a willingness to get involved in the elections, resisting complacent and passive attitudes. Let each one of us know the value of our vote, and let each one exercise our privilege with diligence and faith. Lord, we ask for fairness and justice at the polls May it be just and equitable, revealing the truth in a decisive way.

Almighty God,

Lord, as we enter into the upcoming elections, we ask that You would give us--at every level--leaders who are men and women after Your own heart.

Give us leaders who will lead with integrity and truth. May they be men and women of conviction who are more concerned about doing what is right than about securing a high approval rating.

Guide us to candidates who are honest in the midst of what is often a jaded political process. Although no one is perfect, show us which candidates have been tainted the least and who desire what is best for all Americans.

Please lead us to vote for people who not only have deep seated morals but are grounded in a relationship with You. May these people seek direction from Your Word and from godly advisors. May they be men and women of prayer who understand that they are answerable to You. And may they be courageous enough to walk in obedience to what You have required of them.

Equip our leaders with the skills to make and pass laws with knowledge and understanding. Give them the wisdom to know how to achieve consensus.

Lord God, You are the one who sets up leaders and deposes them. You are the one who gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. This Tuesday, open the eyes of the American voters so we will see past the appearances and into the heart. Through our leaders, may You turn our hearts toward you.

Adapted from: “We Will Pray for Election Day,” by Tom Freiling and Mike Klassen. Allegiance Press.

On Wednesday, we will thank God for working in our Nation through the elections. We put our trust in Him to use the President-Elect--and every person chosen--to serve His great and high purposes for our nation. Grant that we may surround every leader with our support and faithful prayers. Encourage our President- and Vice President-Elect through the power of Your Spirit. Amen.
