2012 Election


VOTE!

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and 
to seek your direction and guidance. 
We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good," 
but that is exactly what we have done. 
We have lost spiritual equilibrium 
and reversed our values. 
We have exploited the poor 
and called it the lottery. 
We have rewarded laziness 
and called it welfare. 
We have killed our unborn 
and called it choice. 
We have shot abortionists 
and called it justifiable. 
We have neglected to discipline our children 
and called it building self esteem. 
We have abused power 
and called it politics. 
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions 
and called it ambition. 
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography 
and called it freedom of expression. 
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers 
and called it enlightenment. 
Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; 
cleanse us from sin and set us free. 
Amen."
~ Billy Graham ~
Blessings ~ voting ~ service men and women who put themselves in harm's way to keep us free ~ Billy Graham ~ God, who allows only that which He ordains ~

What a powerful and moving prayer! It defines every thing that is wrong with America and the world. I was moved by the words you printed to pray them. What truth! I appreciate you Sandra and what you stand for. I hope you are finding some peace in your time away.

Isn't it lovely that we can have a different opinion? Everyone VOTE! I bet we agree on that. Hope all is better and you are relaxing.

What a perfect prayer for today! I will be prayerfully casting my vote this afternoon. I'm very anxious, but I know that God is in control.

May God have mercy on our country. We have failed Him so.

I have not followed your blog for very long, but I love what you have to say. Thanks for reminding of this wonderful prayer. The Graham family is my favorite - Ann, Franklin and of course our beloved Billy.

I loved this post. I know I prayed more than I ever have during this past election. The Lord moves in mysterious ways. Sigh.
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a kind compliment. I really do appreciate it!

While we didn't prevail, it was close as we knew it would be. More hard work ahead for those of us on the opposite side of victory this time.
The Republican needs younger people with vigor and enthusiasm, like Marco Rubio. I will now ask our Father to guide the misguided. Love to you, Sandra...

The work ahead of us now is to pray for faith to trust God no matter the nation's circumstances, and grace.

Dear One, I am still stunned at the outcome of the election. Dazed. Eventually it will soak in. Grieving isn't the right word, but close enough.

With praying in mind, I will continue to lift up our country and the people in it. Revival needed. An awakening.

God bless and pray on,
