An election day prayer

Gracious Heavenly Father,
We thank you today that we live in such a great country! Thank you for your blessings on this nation that allow us to vote today freely and without fear. We give you praise for your magnificent power and wisdom.

Father we believe our country has turned it’s back on you. Not just in the last four years but for decades we have rebelled against your will. We ask for your forgiveness for our sins which are many.

We trust in the fact that you rule supremely and know that no sparrow falls from it’s nest without you seeing it. We believe that you raise up rulers and kings. We trust completely that your wisdom is greater than any earthly wisdom.

With great humility we ask that you would allow our candidate to win. We believe to the best of our knowledge that he offers the best future for our country.

Above all we ask that you would allow the candidate to win whose election would bring the greatest chance for the revival of your church, the candidate whose election will cause the church to be more prayerful and dependent upon you and that drives us to our knees.

We thank you that we “wrestle not against flesh and blood” and that we do not wrestle in our own strength but in the power of your spirit.

We submit this prayer humbly in name of Jesus Christ our Lord. “For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever, Amen”
