Prayer Thread for the Election
Me | 11/2/06 | Knitting a Conundrum

Posted on 11/02/2006 9:13:31 PM PST by Knitting A Conundrum

Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked ruler over a poor people. A ruler who lacks understanding is a cruel oppressor; but he who hates unjust gain will prolong his days. Proverbs 28: 15, 16

With the election coming, I ask those of you who wish to to join me in prayer for the election.

We thank you Lord that Thou art the One that holds the nations in the palms of Thy faithful and trustworthy hands.

And while as a nation we have often forsaken Thee and deserve your just judgment, we know that Thou art merciful as well as mighty. Be merciful to our nation, Lord.

Raise up leaders who seek to do Thy will. And help us on this day, and ever day, to rest in the knowledge that Thou art sovereign in Your providence and perfect in all of Your ways.

In Jesus' blessed name,

Amen

Lord we pray that our forces would stand up to the Enemy and Destroy him. Lord we pray that you will show your Power and Mercy to this Land.

Lord we know that you are in control and pray that your hand would move across this land to bring out your saints and hold back the enemy. Lord we pray that you show your power once again. We pray that you would bring Healing and Unity among your followers.

We pray a protection over our soldiers in harms way.

In Jesus' Name
Amen

Thank you for the ping (and I had a few others yesterday)..I too have been praying for our country & this election for several weeks actually. I have delayed voting this AM as I will admit to being totally unprepared on the 5 issues on Ohio ballots.. so awaiting some input from Ohio FReepers on our board.

God be with our candidates, the process & voting officials.

Lord Jesus,
In the still of this hour I come to You , with thanksgiving and a sacrifice of Praise. You O Lord are Soverign and worthy to be praised.

You know all of the affairs of men. You knew before the foundations of this earth, every detail that concerns us.

I ask in the Precious Name of Jesus Christ, Your Risen Son, for Your perfect Will to be done this day in our country's election process. Lord may evil's ugly hand be stayed. May the Name of Jesus Christ be glorified and may our land KNOW that You indeed are Lord , this day.

Provide us miracles in election after election, even those races where it looks like the enemy has a complete victory.

Oh God, I lift my eyes to Your Hills this morning, as I know my help cometh from You alone.

Be with everyone today on this forum. May Your peace, and a spirit of Hope permeate our beings as we start this day. Remove all fear and doubt Lord Jesus.We know you are soon to return and take us to be with Yourself. What a glorious and blessed event that will be.

We praise You. We glorify You. We honor You , and yes we Trust You.

In the Matchless Name of Jesus Christ , Risen, and Coming again, Amen

If you came here legally (and I know YOU did) -- WELCOME!

May others everywhere realize they can make their own homelands prosperous like America by holding to the eternal principles we aspire to.

May the citizens of "Third World" countries realize they don't need to subsidize the economies of tyrants and thugs with American dollars, if they will apply the same principles.

May they be proud enough of their homeland that they will stay and fight for the weak and helpless there--and may we in America stand with them for the betterment of all humanity!

GOD BLESS OUR NATION, OUR PRESIDENT AND OUR TROOPS.

Amen.

Someday I might understand why the Republicans did not play up the judge/Senate connection during this campaign season. It is almost as if they ran away from their conservative base while the democrats were trying to discourage that same base.

Hopefully, their last few days of catch-up will make the difference.

My fear is that they trying to see if they could make it without the religious conservatives so they wouldn't be beholden to them.

They can't.

Psalm 138

I give thee thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart;
I bow down toward thy holy temple
and give thanks to thy name
for thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness;
for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word.

On the day I called,
thou didst answer me,
my strength of soul thou didst increase.

All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD,
for they have heard the words of thy mouth;
and they shall sing of the ways of the LORD,
for great is the glory of the LORD.

For though the LORD is high,
he regards the lowly;
but the haughty he knows from afar.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
thou dost preserve my life;
thou dost stretch out thy hand against the wrath of my enemies,
and thy right hand delivers me.

The LORD will fulfil his purpose for me;
thy steadfast love, O LORD, endures for ever.
Do not forsake the work of thy hands.

Prayer Warriors,
I believe God is calling us to PRAISE HIM and WORSHIP HIM this day.... As I have been meditating and praying with all of you and your petitions to Our Lord, this song has been flowing through my heart... let's all " sing" to the Lord with Praise and Expectation....
Polly




As we gather may Your Spirit work within us

As we gather may we glorify Your name

Knowing well that as our hearts begin to worship

We'll be blessed because we came

We'll be blessed because we came


Chorus:

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,

His mercies never come to an end,

They are new every morning, new every morning

Great is Thy faithfulness (Oh Lord)

Great is Thy faithfulness


Verse 2:

You have called us by Your Spirit into worship

In this temple You have set our hearts aflame

As we lay our hearts upon Your holy altar

We'll be blessed in Jesus' name


Verse 3:

Let us cleanse our hearts as we begin to worship

Let us fill our hearts with love for You and sing

Open up our eyes so we may come to know You

And unto us the Spirit bring


Lamentations 3:22-24

22It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

23They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

24The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

Father: We ask for Godly government upon our land today-give wisdom to your people and let the voice of the righteous be heard in the land! May the hills of resistance melt like was before the presence of Almighty God and every evil doer flee! May You see that our nation will be exalted because we have sought You and Your face today! We need You this day. May You know how desparate we are for good government and for a move of God upon America.

Please also pray for New Jersey. We need it in many ways.

Dear Lord,

Teach this nation this day to discern the true good, even when it looks plain and dull and old fashioned from the untrue glitter the enemy tries to pass off as good, shiney, and popular and exciting. May all today who vote realize, if just for a flash what is good and what is not, and may they vote accordingly.

I ask this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

>>>My fear is that they trying to see if they could make it without the religious conservatives so they wouldn't be beholden to them.<<<

I thought about this on my return from voting, zxins ... perhaps it was not to stir up, at this time, any great controversy between Republicans opposed to abortion, and Republicans who are pro-choice. The idea now is to retain Republican majorities and then present conservative judicial nominees.

Just a thought. And by the way, I was #171 before 10 a.m.in voting on the new machine, which I found to be easy and smooth and relatively private. Turnout is heavy. On the return home, I thanked the Lord for the peace that passes all understanding ... to God be the Glory ... great things He has done, and continues to do.

Dear Lord, I am praying to you to see that todays mid-term elections shall produce nothing but a Victory for the United States of America and all mankind everywhere. See that those elected are the right choice for this age. Protect, direct, sustain and guide them now in all they shall say or do during their tenures.

See that they direct, defend, honor, love and obey the Constitution of the United States of America, the Spirit of the Magna Charta, and every holy instrument of freedom, law and divine justice, showing forth a spirit of enlightenmant to all people.

May everyone elected to office be the best choice possible for moving America into her divine destiny as a harbitor of freedom and liberty for all peoples.

Seal and protect the election in an all-engulfing wave of Light from the heart of our Lord and every Saint in heaven.
See that order and right triumph victoriously and that every attempt for deceit and fraud comes to naught. We thank you Lord and accept it done according to Gods' Holy Will, Amen.

I am asking you all to lift up my dear cousin Richard "Dick" Mountjoy today. He is the Republican canidate for US Senate against Dianne Feinstein. He is a true believer and has not had any support from the Republican party because he is too conservative and to the right. Our Governor , Arnold S, has really not endorsed him at all. It is a uphill battle. Please pray for our voters in California this day. Here is Dicks' website. He is so OPENLY Christian that people are shying away from him.
GOd Bless my dear cousin, Dick this day!!!

You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.

Matthew 7:16-18

Lord, help those who vote today to distinguish between good and bad, even as they are told the bad is good and the good is wicked.

Help us choose wisely, and may the will of the Father be done.

"Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it."

Matthew 7:24-27

O Lord, we live in an era where those who supposedly follow you tell us your word is not what you said, and use you as an excuse to do what they will.

Help us, to hear the truth and act upon it, this election day and always,

Amen.
