For US elections, wisdom for the most righteous choices

PRAYER ALERT: The candidates are now racing to the finish line. Each vote can make the difference in turning the nation toward righteousness or unrighteousness, not only in the election of president, senators, congressmen and state & local authorities, but in how they vote on nation-changing issues. These issues include: economic recovery, jobs, abortion, the spread of pornography, racism of any kind, selection of judges, loyalty to the Constitution, and the dangerous agendas of radicals—whether from Muslim, narco-terrorist, socialist or homosexual groups—who want to take away legitimate freedoms. The decisions of elected officials on these issues have an impact that is at times godlike: “A divine decision is in the lips of the king; his mouth should not be unfaithful in judgment” (Prov. 16:10; see also Ps. 82). Let us pray that as voters examine each candidate’s record, positions, and character, they are guided by wisdom and their consciences, and choose which is more righteous than the other.

Prov. 14:34. “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to the people.”

Prov. 16:12. “It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness, for a throne is established in righteousness.”

Prov. 20:28. “Loyalty and truth preserve the king, and he upholds his throne by righteousness.”

Prov. 28:12. “When the righteous triumph, there is great glory, but when the wicked rise, men hide themselves.”

Prov. 29:12. “If a ruler pays attention to falsehood, all his ministers become wicked.”

PRAY WITH US: Father God, Your throne is established in righteousness. You are holy, just and loving toward all You have made. We thank You for giving us choices, and for showing us the difference between righteous and sinful ways. Forgive us for wrong choices in the past. Do not judge the US for wrong choices by establishing sinful rulers to show the consequences of sins. We ask that November 6 not be a day of judgment but a day of course correction. Extend a grace period for the US, and for the world it influences, by leading voters in paths of righteousness. Establish authorities who will learn and enact Your plans to prosper the US, and not to harm the US. Remind us to pray as those authorities make decisions, that they also will vote and act in Your ways, that the US may be spared from future judgments too, and live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. Let the US fulfill the divine destiny that its founders and their successors prayed for, fought for, and labored for. In Jesus’ name, amen.
