Welcome to our Blog
Below you will find articles, prayerful thoughts and other encouragement to keep you motivated during this time of year. Be blessed and take advantage of your time to approach the Father in prayer.
No matter who wins today, we must remember the authorities are servants of God. We should honor those to whom honor is due.
Christians must remember the God’s word was here long before our nation and God’s word will prevail longer after our nation is past. God’s words are eternal, this world is temporary.
Water cooler talks will discuss the voting process and social media will be flooded with unnerving activity. However, the day will bring what we allow it to bring. If you make the choice to allow political stress into your life, you will find yourself in the moment of stress. If you allow your thoughts to remember that God is in control no matter the outcome, you will be able to find relief.
Father today is Your day. Help us to remember You.
This week will be a crazy one due to the political elections. We need You to watch over us today and throughout the week. It is our prayer Father that we will look to You now, more than ever.
Father, this day, hear our prayer. While the world is focused upon the upcoming election, the results and the new President and other leadership, help us to maintain our focus upon You. Help our minds to be set on the tings above, in Your eternal dwelling.
Allow us, oh Lord, to be conscious that this world is just temporary. The things happening in the next few days are only here for a little while. Allow us the moments throughout the day to remember where our true citizenship is held.
Throughout history, countries have had their ups and downs. With each up and down, there are some lessons which need to be learned. It is up to each one of us to find the lessons, learn them and not repeat them if they are troubling.
Today, spend time in pray to pray for the lessons that we may learn them.
In less than five days, our country will take part in our of its greatest freedoms, voting.
Closer and closer… the Election Day is coming.
It is hard to believe in less than five days, the candidates will learn who won and who did not win the election. Because of the mailing voting and other issues, we hope the election will be decided swiftly.
As of now, a record number of people have voted early. The numbers are showing more Americans and early voted and mailed in their votes than in the past 100 years. Those are large numbers and growing larger as Election Day draws closer.
While millions of Americans have already voted, there are still millions of Americans planning to head to the polls on Election Day. People in the know say that this coming Election Day will be extremely large.
A week from today, millions of our country’s citizens will head to the polls to cast their vote for the candidate or candidates they feel best to hold a position of leadership. Others may use this time to write in another name.
This week will be a battle.
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.
Allow today to be a blessed time for you.
Push aside the political leanings of the world and allow God in Your life. Clear your minds from any worldly thoughts and allow the worship we give to God to rule our hearts, minds, and souls today.
Let your cup overflow with the blessings of God as you worship Him.
Emotions are gaining momentum as the days are growing closer to Election Day. On top of the elections, there are emotions growing over the Supreme Court nomination and one party’s talk of a boycott during this process.
Today, it might be a good time to pray that our elected leaders act consistently. Whichever party you support, or if you do not support one party’s platform, we all need to pray for elected leaders to act consistently.
Times are short. James tells us that life is short. Our lives are like a vapor that appears for a little while, then vanishes away. Older individuals tell me that time goes faster when you are getting older. We need to be reminded that time on earth moves fast, but eternity is forever.
Wherever you are on this scale of voting, you need to remember that God is in control and we need to pray. While we might have our personal opinions on various political stances, let us be sure it is not taking the place of our reliance on the Father.
God is interested in the dealings of man. The reason we know this is through of His sending His Son to die for us. God knew what we needed right when we need it.
What does a person do when they know they should pray, but they are unsure what to pray for? How does a Christian handle the unknown of prayer?
While you might not feel the unknown words right now, I would imagine there are time you have felt like you needed to pray, but you were unsure what to petition God to do. Many have been through this and I would like many will go through this. You are not alone.
Father, today we graciously come to You longing to receive Your wisdom. May Your wisdom be upon us in this needful time. Allow us the open mind to receive Your wisdom and Word. Over the next two weeks, may we find peace in Your Words and Your attentive ear.
Throughout my short time in voting, there have always been depressed and discouraged people Typically, it was because their candidate or their party did not win the election. Over the next few days, or even into months, they will feel disappointed.
While it might be the emotional response to make, let us not be discouraged because God has not left us alone. He is always there for you.
It is the beginning of the week.
Today is Sunday.
This is the day of focus on the worship and honor of our God. Let us be reminded today of our praise to God from Psalm 145…
A Simple Prayer
Father, tonight we ask for Your guidance as we navigate this world. We need Your direction.
Father, tonight we ask for Your protection. As our adversary walks this Earth, we need Your protection.
Father, tonight we ask for Your forgiveness. Whiel we have walked this earth, we have sinned. We need Your forgiveness.
Do not be someone who allows politics to come between something excellent. The things of man, when allowed to take priority, can come between a man and his friend, but they can also come between a man and God. It might seem odd to you that given all the blessings of God and knowing of God’s protection, some people would allow the things of man to come between him and God.
It is difficult to believe that in 18 days Election Day will be upon us. It will be a matter of days before millions of Americans head to their respective polling places and cast their vote. Even now, thousands of Americans have already begun the voting process by mailing in their votes. In the next few days, thousands more ballots will be mailed in to have their votes counted.
The psalmist sits down to pen the words of inspiration from God. In his psalm, he touches on the powerful protection God provides for His people. Despite the turmoil in the world, the psalmist knows the mighty power of God.
The psalmist knows the protection of God can calm his fears. Even though the earth is changing, God is still there. God is amid the world. His workings are great and His dealings with mankind of righteous.
God has not called Christians into a second-rate life. Instead, He has called them in to an excellent life. God wants His people to approve the things that are excellent. (Philippians 1.10) He does not want us focusing on the complaining and griping of the world, but He wants us to shine as lights in the world (Philippians 2.14-15)
While we may take the step and vote for the candidate we feel is best to leader our nation, remember to do so with prayerful consideration. If you are not voting, then you should still be praying. Our nation, whether you are political or not, needs your prayers.
Today is the beginning the week. It is the day Christians assemble to worship the Almighty God. During the worship time together, Christians seek to clear their mind of worldly things to focus on the awe of God.
Today, let’s pray for the nation that our leaders, its current citizens and its future citizens, including ourselves, that we may all remember God and seek His presence.
It is hard to believe another week has passed us by. Lord willing, the new week ahead of us will bring many opportunities to approach the Lord in prayer. As we have spoken before, prayer is a vital communication each Christian has with God. It is important that each Christian maintain that relationship with God.
Father, open our hearts. Open our hearts to receive Your will and receive the results of many things in our lives. Father, we know Your ways are greater than ours, but remind us daily that You know best.
Remind us, Father, that Your Word is a lamp to our feet. As we move closer to this election process, may the pages of our Bibles be turning to dig deeper into You will for our lives.
Father God, the time is growing close when millions of our Earthly country’s citizens will head to the pooling places to cast their vote for the best candidate. Father, we ask for Your wisdom during this time. Our earthly wisdom will only take us so far in our lives, we need Your wisdom from above. Allow us open heart to receive Your wisdom. Father may our hearts be opened not just to receive Your wisdom, but may we apply it daily.
It is worry-free Wednesday!
Worry causes problems. We all know this, yet we all have worried and will worry in the future. Worry seems to be a part of many people’s lives.
Samuel Chadwick is noted as saying,
“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.”
The Psalmist shares powerful words that transcend time. The words of Psalm 133.1 should be an important thought in our lives, but especially during this time of the year. As the day of voting continually gets closer, Christians must remember they are brethren
As Sunday draws to a close, remember to pray.
We know that we have said to “remember to pray” many times over the past week, but prayer is crucial to the life of a Christian. Our communication with God is a necessary part of our relationship.
The weeks are counting down and the days are growing shorter as we move to the election. We hope you are praying.
Pray for the President.
Pray for the Presidential candidates.
Pray for the Presidential candidates’ families.
Pray for the Presidential election.
Today, the news broke the President Trump and First Lady Melaina have the Covid-19 virus. As with all people, President Trump and First lady Melania need to be in our prayers. During the election process, a sitting President has many things happening in a short amount of time. From the upcoming election to the daily strains of a presidency, the stress levels may be large. Add a positive Covid-19 test to the daily pressures and it can wear anyone down.
Father, it is with a grateful heart we approach Your throne today. We are mindful of Your awesomeness and your providential power in our lives. Your power is clearly seen in our lives and we are grateful to You for Your continual blessings.
Are you praying more today than you did yesterday?
Last night’s debates are a reminder that, no matter which side of the aisle you are on, you need to be praying.
Today marks five weeks until the election.
In the next five weeks, advertising will appear on every media source asking you to vote for the candidate sponsoring the advertising. There will be positive points about the sponsoring candidate and negative ads on the opposing candidate. Do not let these deter you from praying.
The week is beginning, and your prayer life is continuing. Paul speaks to the Thessalonians church and encourages them to “pray without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5.17). This thought of “pray without ceasing” speaks of a continual prayer life; through the good and the bad.
Sunday is the day of worship for Christians as we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As Christians assemble, they world and its events are placed on a back burner, while each one humbles themselves before the Most High God.
Our focus is on the praise and worship of God. While we bow before the Creator of the world, we show our allegiance and our hope. Without God, there is not hope for the world.
Keep praying for the election Today, a new Supreme Court Justice Nominee was made know to the public. By now you have heard her name, but have you...
Today is Friday.
The end of the week is here and many look forward to a day of rest tomorrow. Some will catch up on chores, others will spend time with family. Still others may have to work and get ready for the week ahead.
Let your mind rest this weekend, but remember to pray.
The child kneels by the bed and begins to pray, “Dear God, thank you for my family, thank you for Jesus, thank you for the trees, thank you for the worms, thank you for the dirt…”
As the prayer continues, everything in creation is covered, from the tallest Redwood to the deepest ocean cavern. In the prayer, every person is in the family is included, from the grandparents to the family goldfish. Needless to say, children have an interesting way of praying.
The 2020 Election is now 41 days away.
In the next 41 days, will you pray for the future of our country?
On Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020, millions of our country’s citizens will enter the voting booth and vote for candidates. While most will focus on the 2020 Presidential Race, there are several other elections going on as well. May each of us be mindful as Election Day grows closer.
