It’s our desire to see a massive full scale revival erupt throughout the body of Christ in America! During this election season let’s ask for another historic move of the Holy Spirit to sweep across our land and awaken a generation to wholehearted love and surrender to Jesus! May Christ Jesus have absolute supremacy and preeminence in every sphere of society in America, including our governmental and political spheres!
The apostle Paul has a word from God which we need to hear all the time, but especially in an election season. I Tim. 2:1-4 says,
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way. This is good and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior who desires all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth”
The main point of the text is the command to pray, and Paul mentions three things about this command to pray that we should listen to very carefully. First, he mentions its paramount importance: “First of all, I urge you to pray!” Second, he mentions the wideness of its scope: “Pray for all men, especially kings and all in high positions.” Third, he mentions the content or aim of these prayers: they include thanksgiving and the request that our lives be spent in peace, and to the end that men might be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. As Jeremiah says,
“…seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper” (NIV).
Let’s spend our time praying for these elections rather than arguing, quarreling, and debating! Let’s come in the opposite spirit of accusation, and honor others above ourselves, blessing those who curse, praying for those who persecute, overcoming evil with good! Rom 12:9-21
The only hope for the United States is God. Our nation’s many sins, yours and mine included, have permeated our society, leading us to where we are today. But as believers we can’t back down from our responsibility to remain in the place of HOPE- FILLED PRAYER! As Dutch Sheets writes,
“Let it be said of our generation that when a nation teetered on the edge of destruction, having lost the ancient path of truth and righteousness, we answered the divine call to war for it’s restoration”—Appeal to Heaven
