will humble themselves,
and pray and seek My face,
and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin
and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 NKJV

This verse has been on my mind given the upcoming Presidential election on November 6th. It is our privilege and right to vote and I'm asking you to join me in exercising that freedom and vote on November 6th. In the days leading up to the election, it is imperative that we PRAY every day for the outcome.
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior.
1 Timothy 2:1-3 (NIV)
If you're not sure what to pray for, or how to pray, I've shown some prayers below which came from the book Pray for Our Nation (Scriptural Prayers to Revive Our Country).
Prayer is a freedom guaranteed to us by our Constitution, and a God-given right to all humanity. The opportunity to pray is a privilege, honor and sacred duty. (Pray for Our Nation)
Father, I desire to vote intelligently in all elections. I pray that you will bring to light the things I need to know so I may vote in line with Your plan, will and purpose.
I pray for my Christian family (the body of Christ) that they would see the right to vote as a gift from Your hand and avail themselves of this opportunity.
I pray Heaven bestow the best of blessings on this House and all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof. John Adams ~ 2nd U.S. President
Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
Peter Marshall 1902 – 1949 ~ Chaplain of the United States Senate
All history has proved that only those nations are blessed whose God is the Lord. ~ Abraham Lincoln ~
