Praying for America

 

After months of praying and waiting, it’s now the day before a historic election.  I know God is in complete control, and yet He has given us free choice.  These truths collide, pushing me to my knees.  The Almighty One calls me to Himself, and I come in humility.  My prayers pour from His Word, reaching to the King above all kings. 

 

“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”  2 Chronicles 8:1

 

“God reigns over the nations; God is seated on His holy throne.”  Psalm 47:8

 

“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His.  He changes times and seasons; He sets up kings and deposes them.  He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.  He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him.  Daniel 2:20-22

 

“Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever.  Amen.”  I Timothy 1:17

 

“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their cry.”  Psalm 34:15

 

“For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.”  Deuteronomy 30:16

 

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”  Mark 11:24
