The election is over and many who did not get the results they hoped for are fearful, apprehensive, saddened, and worried about the state of our great nation, The United States of America. Well, I am here to encourage you and pray!
God is in charge and HE is the ONE Who makes men great. So this is all part of HIS plan, America: “Everything in the heavens and earth is Yours, O Lord, and this is Your Kingdom. We adore You as being in control of everything. Riches and honor come from You alone, and You are the Ruler of ALL mankind; Your Hand controls power and might, and it is at Your discretion that men are made great and given strength.” – 1 Chronicles 29:11-12
Dear Lord, You are the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Nothing is a surprise to You. You are Mighty, Holy, All-Knowing, Ever-Present, and the giver of all good things. You Alone are worthy of all glory, honor, and praise. I may not understand Your plan, but I know that YOUR ways and YOUR plans are far better than any I could create. I also know that You ALONE are what give men power and You Alone have put Barack Obama into power and You are the One who has kept him there. Right now, I humbly come before You and THANK YOU for Your wisdom, plan, and protection. I pray that You bless President Obama and his family. I pray that You place a hedge of protection around him, this nation, and our families. I pray that You give the man You placed in charge of this great nation wisdom and the courage to do what is right. I pray that You change his heart where it needs to be changed, and help him to be a good, kind, gracious, and merciful king to all the people he rules over.
I pray that you protect Your people and our freedom to worship Your Mighty and Loving Name. I pray that You bring peace over our hearts and help us to trust in YOU! I pray that we are careful with our words and that we exhibit self control. I pray that You help us to do the right things, and say the right things as we move into the days, weeks, months and years ahead. I pray that You remind us Who You are and to be mindful of how we represent our TRUE King to the world.
Finally, Lord, I thank You for all that You are, and all that You do for us each and every day. I pray that we never take for granted the many blessings that we receive, and the many freedoms we are afforded. I pray that we respond with love, dignity, mercy and forgiveness in all we do. I pray that we never forget the price that was paid for our salvation. I also pray that You remind us to show mercy and forgiveness to all, so that we may also RECEIVE mercy and forgiveness from You. I love You and trust You, Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. – Psalm 24:1
