Vote the Bible and Pray!
Written by Christi Given | November 6, 2012
PI readers, whether or not you’re eligible to vote, today’s election is important and we need to be aware and in prayer. Even if you cannot vote, you can do something just as significant or even more powerful…you can pray.
You may say, “Well, I don’t really understand politics, the issues of our nation and other contributing factors influencing the election.” This may be true, but that has the potential for change. All you need to do is observe the policies of the two candidates, pray, and ask God to show you who should be in leadership.
Many people get caught up in controversies and other distracting elements of an election, but it comes down to two words: VOTE BIBLE. I realized this while watching Pastor John Hagee on TBN when I was studying God’s Word. I did not hear a specific opinion on who we should vote for, but more of a declaration of truth and an inspiring perspective that is simple and worthy of sharing. There is even a “Vote The Bible” t-shirt you can order!
In this crucial time in our nation’s history it is imperative that as Americans we put into practice our right to vote. We need to stand up for the principles found in God’s Word, our Biblical convictions…Let’s get back to our Judeo-Christian roots and celebrate once again the Christian precepts that our forefathers held so dearly when America was formed. This cotton t-shirt proudly displays three very important words for this election season and every election going forward…VOTE THE BIBLE! Get one for yourself or as a gift, and let the world know that you are willing to stand for what is right! (John Hagee Ministries)
God is not confused, nor does He operate in confusion. It is quite simple: Our nation is under God and has fallen away from the roots of our founding Fathers. We see tragedy in the way that our financial system has crashed, misrepresentation of how we are to other countries, and we need a Christ-centered revival in this country! We need to stand up for godliness and righteousness because if we don’t, who will? There is a famous quote that says, “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.”
The most helpful thing you can do is pray for protection for our country, wisdom for our leaders, safety for the troops, and for a spiritual awakening in our country. Pray that people will humble themselves and repent.
God loves you so much, and loves the world, and does not want us to fall away from Him or be ashamed of Him! It says very clearly in the Bible,
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels (Luke 9:26).
Let us pray for restoration of love, peace, kindness, purity, and Christ-centered awakening in this nation.
