Election Day 2016

Its Election Day and I’m struggling.  I’m struggling with the dialogue that we’ve been having in this country.  I’m struggling with the hard feelings between neighbors.  I’m struggling with the very real possibility that we might be crashing 200 years of our history of peaceful transfer of power this time.  And I’m struggling with the very words of this campaign season.

So, this is my prayer for today.  This is the reminder from God to me.

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness (I Timothy 2: 1-2)
