Praying for the Elections

I missed this in September, but Max Lucado’s push for Americans to pray for the    presidential election makes sense to me.

Here is the prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

You have given us this promise: ”…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 will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

So, we pray to you. We turn from evil and look to you, our God. Please:

Unite us

Strengthen us

Appoint and anoint our next president

In the name of Christ we pray,

Amen
