People are endlessly discussing and even arguing about the candidates on social media. As my friend said recently, “Those relationships will be there long after this election is over.”
I pray in the coming weeks we can get past our feelings and focus on the dire issues facing our nation. No one thinks rationally when they’re emotional.
the people whom you have chosen as your heritage!
You are our help and our shield.
For our heart is glad in you,
because we trust in your holy name.
Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
even as we hope in you.
fight against those who fight against us.
Take up shield and armor;
arise and come to our aid.
Brandish spear and javelin
against those who pursue us.
Lord, you are our salvation.
be disgraced and put to shame;
may those who plot our ruin
be turned back in dismay.
May they be like chaff before the wind,
with the angel of the Lord driving them away;
may their path be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.
and without cause dug a pit for us,
may ruin overtake them by surprise—
may the net they hid entangle them,
may they fall into the pit, to their ruin.
Then we will rejoice in the Lord
and delight in his salvation.
may your love and faithfulness always protect the USA.
For troubles without number surround us;
our sins have overtaken us, and we cannot see.
They are more than the hairs of our heads,
and our heart fails within us.
Be pleased to save us, Lord;
come quickly, Lord, to help us.
be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire our ruin
be turned back in disgrace.
May those who say, “Aha! Aha!”
be appalled at their own shame.
But may all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say,
“The Lord is great!”
Daniel 2:21 –
God it is you who changes times and seasons; You set up kings and depose them. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.
I invite you to join me next Saturday for more scriptures to pray for our country.
Have a blessed week!
