Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Father, on the eve of our elections, we come to you in gratitude and supplication. Thank you, Lord, for a country that has free elections and for the widespread ability to participate in those elections. Thank you for the candidates and for all who have worked so hard on this campaign. And thank you for the prayer you have raised up from your church concerning this election.
Please protect the integrity of our elections tomorrow. In each voting place, clear the way for all who are legitimately qualified to vote to do so without intimidation or fear. Keep away those who are not qualified to vote and who do not have our country's interests at heart. Protect the polling places from all kinds of danger - from terrorism, from cyber attacks, from anything that would impede fair and honest elections.
Raise up leaders for our country at all levels - federal, state, and local - who will lead in righteousness and who will lead with servants' hearts. Raise up men and women of integrity and character, leaders who know you and who will serve you first and serve the people before their own interests. Block candidates who would lead out of selfish motives and whose interests are purely for their own benefit.
Raise up an unprecedented level of prayer in your church regarding these elections. Hear the prayers of your people, and do that which will bring honor to you. Make this election the impetus for a new movement of prayer for the salvation and repentance of our country and for a renewed strength to fulfill your purposes in the world.
Heal the divisions in our land, Father - both those that have been caused by these elections and those with other causes. Make of your church reconcilers of people - reconciling them first to you, then to each other. Make of us peacemakers - not those who blindly turn an eye to injustice, painting a thin veneer of serenity over a canvas of wrong, but those who pursue the peace that is real peace because it emanates from you.
Transform your people by the power of your word and by the presence of your Spirit. Awaken and transform your church, restoring to her a prophetic role in our society. Renew us from the inside out.
Tomorrow in all our elections, bring about the leaders and the results that are pleasing in your sight. Raise up those who will turn our eyes back to you. Do all this for the sake of your glory.
In the name of your Son Jesus,
