a Hail Mary

I received a version of this last week.  I have edited it for today.

Friends, my hunch is you already have been, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t ask you to be praying about next week’s today’s elections. I think the prayer is simple, really: That God would constrain his people by his Spirit in them to do what is right. This is a good prayer because so many other things can motivate us, like fear, or the power of the advertising, all that gets thrown at us as an election approaches. Emotions are high, but I’m not sure clear thinking is. I wish I had the confidence that God’s people would not be phased by any of it, but we are human and sometimes we are swayed by things other than the Spirit of God. So that’s the prayer for this weekend today, that God’s people would be moved by his Spirit and nothing else.

    Nothing happens when I click on “voting machine”.

    I have prayed more about this election than any in my past.

    It was an incomplete pass! 🙂
    I hope you have a great week.
    You, your family and ministry are always in my prayers daily.
    Remember God is always with us.

    Evangelicals crossed the isle to vote Democratic in record numbers this time around. I’m not sure what the implications of that is, or what it says about those of us who claim to honor God’s word and follow Jesus.

    Obama will be my president and I wish him well. I will pray for him and that he will be a good president is my sincere desire. (http://gracedigest.com) My post “Yes We Can” might be of interest to you.
