After all the votes are counted there will be people that we wanted to serve and people we did not want serving. There will be amendments passed or not passed. Whatever ways this year's election turns out, believers and followers of Jesus Christ are called to do something profoundly powerful: pray.
1 Timothy 2:1-4
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
We pray for those in authority so that our land and lives will have peace. God is pleased with prayers for those in authority because He wants all people to be saved.
How does that work?
God's passionate pursuit has been for the restoration of the broken relationship of humankind to Himself. Ever since Adam and Eve got separated from God by sin, God has been desiring for all people to be saved and restored in their relationship to Him. His purpose for our elected officials is for peace to pervade our land and lives through a life lived with Him.
Vote and Pray.
