+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Proverbs 28:2 (NLT)
When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability.
“In the last presidential election, it’s estimated that 20 to 30 million Christians stayed home. We can’t let this happen again! The future of our nation is riding on this election… The Christian voice needs to be heard.” – Franklin Graham
Prayer for Voter Turnout:
The future of America is in your hands; revive us and rescue us from the moral rot that has infested our government and our nation. On November 8th, your people have an opportunity to change the direction of our country. Raise up a mighty army of believers who will vote for the redemption of America.
Impress on the heart of every believer what’s at stake in this election and move them out of their pews and into their polling places in unprecedented numbers.
Specifically, bring to their attention:
+ The attack by the government on pro-life advocates – suing a group of Catholic nuns, the Little Sisters of the Poor, because they refuse to provide birth control and abortive drugs to employees, because of their religious convictions.
+ The attacks by the government on traditional marriage – suing clergy who refuse to perform same-sex weddings, because of their religious convictions.
+ The attacks by the government on small businesses – suing bakers, photographers and florists who refuse to provide their services at same-sex weddings, because of their religious convictions.
+ The government’s threat to court-martial service personnel who talk about their faith and military chaplains who pray “in the name of Jesus.”
+ The government’s abuse of the IRS to intimidate believer’s religious freedom to discuss issues like same-sex marriage, abortion, and the sanctity of life in church.
+ The threats of lawsuits to intimidate schools and students into not mentioning God or Jesus’ name in graduation speeches, and forbidding prayer before football games
“I earnestly pray that the Omnipotent Being who has not deserted the cause of America in the hour of its extremist hazard, will never yield so fair a heritage of freedom a prey to “Anarchy” or “Despotism.” – George Washington
“For freedom you have set us free.” Awaken your people to the incremental loss of religious freedom that has taken place in America. Move them to vote in great numbers to regain the unique privileges of American citizenship – freedom of religious belief, freedom of thought, freedom to worship, and freedom to speak out against rulers’ oppression.
You have called us to be “the light of the world” – may your people be a brightly shining beacon of hope on November 8th.
+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit – one God forever. Amen.
