Ten prayer requests for election day

Al Mohler shares ten excellent prayer requests for this historic election day...

  1. That God will bless America with leaders better than we deserve
  2. That Americans will be motivated to fulfill the responsibilities of citizenship, yet also that we will be stripped of an unhealthy and idolatrous confidence in the power of government to save us
  3. that Americans will vote by conscience, not merely on the basis of celebrity or emotion
  4. That Americans will vote to defend the least among us -- and especially those who have no vote
  5. That God will prick the conscience of the nation on issues of morality, righteousness, and respect for marriage as the central institution of human civilization
  6. That God will protect these candidates and their families
  7. That the election is conducted with honor, civility, respect, and justice
  8. That Americans will be prepared to accept the results of the election with respect and kindness
  9. That this election would lead to even greater opportunities to preach the Gospel, and that the freedom of the church will be respected, honored, and protected
  10. That the church of the Lord Jesus Christ would be strengthened in the truth, grounded in the faith, and empowered for witness and ministry
Take time to vote today, and take some more time to pray.
