A Prayer for a Nation

I wonder what the next four years will hold. On the eve of America's presidential election, I want to offer up a prayer for our country. Whatever happens, God reigns over the kingdoms of men, and His rule will last forever (Daniel 4:32b, 34b). He knows how things will turn out. May we pray for our country, have strong voices for what is right, and make a difference wherever we are.

Dear Father, I pray that Your hand would be over our elections, and that we would vote based on godly convictions and values. Help us to be strong individually and collectively, to be voices of truth in the world and ambassadors of Your love. In Jesus' name, Amen.

"Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority..." (1 Timothy 2:1-2 NKJV).
