Will You Be Praying Today?
Days Until the Election
Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.
With a little over 8 days left until Election Day, your prayers are needed.
A quick way to gauge the political climate is to watch your Facebook feed for a few moments. Friends will begin debating friends, and some will no longer be friends. Even posting a simple status regarding a news topic can become the lightning rod of hate from someone else.
This is not our purpose in life. As Christians, our purpose in everything we do is to glorify the Father and become lights to the world.
Christians must remember their influence is great in a troubling world. As you look around, you can see the impact of other statements regarding politics, and we must remember to rise above the fray and become the lights that God would have us to be in the midst of this world.
This morning, consider a few passages and let them be a light to your path.
“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:17)
“Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.” (Philippians 2:14-16)
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
Father, today, as the world struggles to find the narrow path, may we, as Your people, be the shining lights so the world may see You. Father allow our focus to be upon You and it is our prayer that our actions will be pleasing to your sight.
Father, as this worldly election draws near, my we turn our lives to You so others may see You working through us. May we grow closer to You.
Father, we need You.
In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
