Prayers for Election Day

November 6, 2012

Just now getting online after a full and busy work day here in W. Africa. I’ve not had any time to do any blogging, or write any original prayer or reflection for Election Day, but here are a few links with prayers for the US and for today’s election.

Pastor Scotty Smith’s Heavenward Blog: A Prayer for Election Day  (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!)  Here’s an excerpt:

 On this Election Day, we bow to you and cast our votes. The brokenness in our country, hearts and world leads us to cry out, “How long, Oh, Lord? How long before you return, Lord Jesus, and finish making all things new?” Until that Day, we will seek to “Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.” (1 Pet. 2:7). We will seek to live as good citizens of two kingdoms—the city of man and the City of God. We will seek to adorn the gospel and serve you faith-fully, wherever you place us in the community and culture.

     Whatever the results of this Presidential election, (as well as the many, many other offices which will be decided today), we affirm with renewed confidence and in-this-moment gratitude, that you, Lord Jesus, are the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Hallelujah, what a Savior; Hallelujah, what a salvation. And you shall reign for ever and ever! So very Amen we pray, in your loving and triumphant name.

Luke 13:6-9

November 6, 2012

He also spoke this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ 8ut he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down.'” (Luke 13:6-9)
      Lord Jesus Christ, please help us daily bear good fruit for you and for the kingdom of God.

      Holy Spirit, help us recognize the cost of not bearing fruit for Jesus and the kingdom.

      Father, have mercy on us and all your people.

A word received: I AM the Good Shepherd. Look to me and I will lead you by the hand.
