Praying Daily for the Elections – Day 36 – 10/23/2012
Fifty Days of Prayer for the National Election 2012 – Day 36
Day 36 October 23
Focus: Early Voting
Ultimately, whatever the area of prayer emphasis, we must always come back to the purposes of God. Jesus taught us to pray, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.” (Mt. 6:10) As we pray for something as important as the national elections, we must lay down our own desires and take up the desires of God. What we truly desire is for the Lord’s purposes to be achieved in and through our nation. All of our requests must be couched in words and thoughts that focus our hearts on the Kingdom of God.
· Pray today for the purposes of God to be accomplished in the U.S. elections.
· Pray that the U.S. will turn and seek first the Kingdom of God.
· Pray that God will be honored in the midst of this election campaign.
· Pray for opportunities for Christians to share their faith and their values in the midst of this election process.
· Pray that the results of the 2012 elections will please the Lord and release His blessing over this nation.
