On Tuesday, November 3, Virginians will cast a very important vote in our commonwealth’s history. The candidates couldn’t be more different in their positions on crucial moral issues. As the battle escalates over Obamacare, defunding and prosecuting Planned Parenthood and the threats of ISIS increase against our people through the entrance of Muslim “refugees”, we need strong Officials in our House of Delegates and State Senate to defend us. We need courageous leaders to stand up to the war against our Constitution. We need God’s divine intervention. Our help must come from God.
Please commit to pray at least once daily until all ballots have been counted. Please add anything else the Lord may lay on your heart.
“For great is your love, higher than the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, let your glory be over all the earth. With God we will gain the victory…” Psalm 108:4, 5, 13
“The Lord foils the plans of the nations; He thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of His heart through all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for his inheritance.” Psalm 33:10-12
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for Your sovereign control over the destiny of Virginia.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God & renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10
Dear Heavenly Father, Please forgive us for ignoring the dishonesty that has crept into our media and culture. Forgive us for our apathy about standing for what is right and allowing the politically correct people to stifle our free speech. Forgive our Commonwealth for the slaughter of innocent babies in the name of “choice”.
“O magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name together.” Psalm 34:3
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for abundantly blessing America and Virginia with freedom and prosperity.
Thank you for protecting us from tyrants and terror. Thank you for free elections. (Please add anything else for which you are thankful.)
“For Thou LORD wilt bless the righteous with favor will you surround him.” Psalm 5:12
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please shine Your favor on Your candidates. Help voters to see the truth. Give all Christ-honoring candidates Your victory. Amen.
Monday, November 2
When the ancient Israelites entered the Promised Land, their first obstacle was the great walled city of Jericho. As Joshua and the men prepared to conquer the city, God gave them a clear battle strategy. They were to walk around the great city once a day for six days without speaking one word. On the final day, they silently circled the city seven times. What went through the minds of these untrained warriors as they only heard the tramping feet of their fellow countrymen? Did they hear taunts from above as Jericho citizens jeered? They saw the great wall up close. Did they tremble in fear at the overwhelming size of this fortress city? Did they feel outnumbered and unprepared? How many realized that their only hope for victory would be from God? During the silent trek, how many called out to God in prayer? How many asked Him to do the impossible?
Today, we need God to do the impossible for us. We too have the opportunity to call out to Him and ask Him to give us a fair election. May He crumble our opponents like He crumbled the walls of Jericho!
Here’s a simple strategy: on the evening of November 2 (preferably before dark) go to your local polling precinct. Take a few like-minded friends and march around the building or grounds. Pray out loud or silently asking God to make sure no fraud will succeed in the precinct the next day. Pray for only a fair vote to come from the precinct. Below are a few requests in addition to the Confession and Praise from the previous page. Please feel free to add whatever God lays on your heart. (If you can’t make it to your polling place the night before, please pray about these candidates at a convenient time as often as you can.)
Dear Heavenly Father, We lift up this polling place. We pray there will be no tampering with machines, ballots or any confusion causing voters to mis-vote. We pray any attempts at fraud would fail and/or be caught. We ask that all ballots cast would be fair ballots.
Help voters not to be deceived but to see the whole truth.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen
Tuesday, November 3
Be sure to vote! Pray that God’s men and women will be elected.
