Prayer: Our God in heaven, you who are the absolute sovereign of all things because you made all things and have decreed all things, we bless your name today because we are told to trust you because you care for your people. We face uncertain days in our lives as we exercise the privilege to vote for our national and local leaders. We know that your Word tells us that the heart of the king is in your hands and that you turn him wherever you desire. We know that you exalt people to positions of authority and that you do so for the good of your church. We confess that your providence is often a mystery to us and that we sometimes grumble and complain at your actions. Forgive us for our weak faith and for failing to believe what you have told your church — that you love her and care for her and protect her and will bring her safely to her heavenly rest.
We pray that you would guide all that occurs today in our nation. We pray that you would be glorified and exalted even as the angels in heaven do your will and glorify you. We pray that you would use these circumstances for the glory of the kingdom of Christ and the good of your people. Please help us to trust you and believe you, regardless of what happens. We pray this in the name of the Savior, the King of kings and Lord of lords. Amen.
