I am terrified by the news reports – by the uncertainty of our nation, by our presidential election for 2016. I want to know my prayers have an impact on the process that will take place in November. I want to know that my voice, my vote, and my raised hands make a difference. I want to know that we are not compromising our freedom or faith for fear. I want integrity, leadership, and God’s mighty hand to guide the way of our next president. I want to be brave and not swept up by fear of what I can’t see. I want to be led by compassion.
I challenge all of my beloved sisters in Christ, to be bold in this upcoming election and in our current worldly happenings. Pray for our nation, and take comfort knowing that there is hope in the promise of the cross.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” Hebrews 6:19
I take refuge knowing that he holds the world in his hands, and that ultimately we have been won by perfect love! And his perfect love casts out ALL fear.
“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.” Psalm 68:19
“What is most important is becoming a pillar, a woman who is the same even when nobody is watching – one that holds an inner compass that guides her in every decision – who desires more than anything to be good, true and noble.” – Sarah Dubbeldam, Editor and Chief of Darling Magazine
Let’s begin to ask the Lord how we can become active in our society and in our current national happenings, and how to pray over our future president. I pray that as we begin to hear from the Lord, that we follow through with the guidance he’s given us. That we show compassion, strength, and faith in the Lord over all. I pray the companionship of the Lord brings peace, clarity, and vision. I pray that we are empowered by the Spirit to change the earth and bring heaven closer to our hearts, seeking first eternity’s crown. Amen.
“As you obey, the impressions from the Spirit will come more frequently, becoming closer and closer to constant companionship.” –Henry B. Eyring
