I Chronicles 16:23-34, I Samuel 16:1-13
Reflections of the Heart:
God has always been concerned about who governs His people. As we wrap up this election season, listen prayerfully to the candidates and ask the Holy Spirit to show you who you need to vote for.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for being our King, Lord and leader. Thank You for the right to vote. Thank You for the authority to expect change through prayer. Thank You for giving us the wisdom, discernment and knowledge to pray for our nation’s elections. We, Your servants, praise You. We will hold up holy hands in prayer and praise You. Yes, we will sing about Your ways, for Your glory is very great! You care for the humble, but keep Your distance from the proud. Lord, You are merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are good to everyone and shower compassion on all of Your creation.
Magnificent Father, let Your Kingdom come and Your will be done during the national, state and local elections. Your Word states that we are to pray for kings and all people who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives that are marked by godliness and dignity. We know that this is good and acceptable in Your sight. We declare that the political election process will yield to Your plans. Your Word tells us that if we love You, we must also love one another. We declare that we are of one mind, united in thought and purpose. We command peace to be still in and around every polling location. We command Your Word, which we speak with boldness and faith, to interrupt the airwaves and destroy every negative act sent to undermine the voting process. We decree that every attempt to misconstrue the Truth will be confused, in Jesus’ Name. As for me, Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Father, we pray that the democratic process will be implemented fairly and justly throughout our city, state and nation on tomorrow. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, give me wisdom and discernment as I exercise my vote:
Holy Spirit, continue to draw the unsaved people in our nation to the Father, so that they will confess Jesus Christ and receive Him as their Savior and Lord. Unify our nation and help us all to stand together for justice and righteousness. We ask that Your Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, and power rest upon each person responsible for the accurate execution of the election process. Help them to make righteous decisions and operate with honesty and integrity. Confuse the thoughts and messages of masterminds who are behind the evil works against these elections. Touch the hearts of all persons to report evil doers to the authorities. Father, we know that nothing is too difficult for You.
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.
Triumphant Lord, You are the eternal King, Your rule is everlasting. All the people of the earth are nothing compared to You. All of Your acts are just and true. You alone have held the oceans in Your hand. You measured the heavens with Your fingers and know the weight of the earth. The Lord God Almighty is Your Name. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
