The American people will be facing some extremely important elections this Fall, including the race for the White House. There will also be some very important Congressional races throughout the country. Hundreds of millions of dollars will be spent by the candidates and by what are now being called the SuperPACS. There are lots of good men and women, as well as some who are not so good, who will be seeking our votes. It will be very important to find out what the candidates really stand for, what their true character is, what their motivations for holding office are, and who all is financing their campaigns. All of these are certainly good things to know and things voters should know before deciding on a candidate.
But there is something else we can all do that also is very important. We can pray daily for all of the candidates and for their families. In fact, that might be the most important of all. Politics in the U.S. has developed into contests to see who among the candidates can be the most negative – who can be the meanest, who can be the most deceptive, and who can be the most “slick.” That’s a sad commentary on our political times in this country. We really don’t seek out the best person, based on character, ability, vision and qualifications, as our choice in many instances to hold an elected position.
While I have my personal preferences among the current crop of candidates, I intend to pray, not only for those candidates, but also for those I don’t intend to vote for. It may be hard for me to do this as the elections heat up – but with God’s help – I can do it.
Hopefully, our readers and their families will make the very same pledge and then carry it out. If we all followed this course between now and election day, and then continued to pray for the winners after the elections are over, I believe the United States of America would be a better place.
