A group of Christian bloggers has committed to 40 days of non-partisan prayer for our country and the upcoming elections... If you would like to join in the effort, even if you don't have your own weblog (those of us who do will post your prayer for you), see Bryan at Spare Change.
From Christopher at Spare Change:
Father in Heaven,
I thank you for this day. I thank you for another day to serve you. Others would have me believe that today is somehow evil, but I believe that this is a day that you created and I thank you for it. I thank you for your saving grace and for the relationship that you provide. Thank you for this country that allows the people to have a say in who leads the country.
It is close to the time when Americans head to the poles to cast our votes for who we think should be lead our country. I pray that the process is fair and the every vote is counted.
I pray that you would bless the man that is chosen and that he would lead our country in a direction that is in accordance with your will. May he lead the country in a way that the country would be a blessing for others.
I also pray that you would be with the families that go out tonight to Trick or Treat. I pray that they would be safe and protected.
I pray all this in Jesus name,
