Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. – Daniel 2:20–21 (NIV)
OBSERVATION: Throughout the Bible it is clear that God is interested and has a heart for our world leaders. We are called to pray for our elected officials. We need to be in fervent prayer as we, as a nation go to the polls to choose our leaders.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, we thank you for allowing us to live in a nation where we have the ability to freely vote for our leaders. We know that you do not make mistakes and that there is a season for everything. We ask that you guide us as a nation as we elect leaders on all levels. We pray that you will raise up and seat godly men and women to make decisions for our city, our state and our country. For we know that You are in control, that You know our future and no matter what, You are on Your throne and will reign for ever and ever. Amen.
