U.S.A. Election. It’s Time To Pray (and Vote)

On NOVEMBER 1, 1800, John Adams became the first U.S. President to move into the White House. The following day he wrote a letter to his wife, Abigail, in which he composed a beautiful prayer. A portion of John Adams’ prayer was inscribed on the mantelpiece in the State Dining Room by President Franklin D. Roosevelt:


“I pray Heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this house and all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof.”

The time has come, once again, for we Americans to exercise a powerful gifting of our republic: The gift to vote for governmental leadership over ourselves, the United States of America, the most blessed nation on earth.


Borrowed from the Christian Law Association’s recent article, “A Plea for Prayer,” I share the following urgent plea with you:

A Plea for Prayer!

Believing that this is a critical time in the history of our nation, we are fervently asking that God’s people fast and pray for a minimum of one hour between now and the election on November 8.

The Bible clearly says that “…ye have not, because ye ask not” (James 4:2). With so many critical issues at stake in our nation, it would be spiritual negligence of the highest order for us not to pray.

I would suggest that these four items be specifically uplifted in prayer:

1. That candidates who want to uphold, and even expand, abortion in our land would be unsuccessful.

2. That candidates who stand for Biblical righteousness would specifically have God’s favor upon their elections.

3. That those candidates who would appoint and approve Justices to the Supreme Court and other courts whose rulings would be contrary to the Word of God would be unsuccessful.

(This election could frame the holdings of the Supreme Court for generations to come, based on who has the right to select and approve the Justices that sit on the court.)

4. That God would be merciful to our nation and give us, as Christians, candidates who would permit us to live in peace with all men. “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men” Romans 12:18.

Please vote! The vote of every Christian belongs to the Lord, and it is imperative that we not allow it to be made of no effect by either willfully or negligently not using it.

I believe that this is the most exciting hour for Christians in America since the very founding of our country. It is both a privilege and an honor to be able for God’s people to pray and see what God will do in the affairs of our nation.

Thank you for your effectual fervent prayers. Thank you for taking seriously this earnest appeal. As a congregation, CAC must stand united. I challenge you, pick your fasting and prayer time soon and before the votes begin to be counted on Tuesday, November 8. We know God has promised to hear, forgive, and heal our land as long as we, His people approach Him with humility, earnestly seeking His face, completely rejecting wickedness (2 Chr 7:14).

Proverbs 14:34
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”

The future is bright as long as God’s people, the called out righteous church, maintains close, fervent, and active lines of communication with our Great Creator. Why? Because the “the government shall be upon His shoulder!”
