Prayer Before an Election
Lord God, as the election approaches,
we seek to better understand the issues and concerns that confront our city/state/country,
and how the Gospel compels us to respond as faithful citizens in our community.
We ask for eyes that are free from blindness
so that we might see each other as brothers and sisters,
one and equal in dignity,
especially those who are victims of abuse and violence, deceit and poverty.
We ask for ears that will hear the cries of children unborn and those abandoned,
Men and women oppressed because of race or creed, religion or gender.
We ask for minds and hearts that are open to hearing the voice of leaders who will bring us closer to your Kingdom.
We pray for discernment
so that we may choose leaders who hear your Word,
live your love,
and keep in the ways of your truth
as they follow in the steps of Jesus and his Apostles
and guide us to your Kingdom of justice and peace.
We ask this in the name of your Son Jesus Christ and through the power of the Holy Spirit.
This is a really good prolife election prayer. I also think there is a very good chance that Obama is moslem so he is not able to hear God's Word though he says he is Christianm, so we can't prove it. Still, Jerry posted another thread about the moslem ring he wears plus he accidentally admitted it and it can be found on a utube video....the mormon religion is at least peaceful while the moslem religion was founded by violence and promotes violence in some cases. Not sure how much we should focus on personal religion though but rather on whether they let us have our religion.
