Lord, we come to You this morning thankful for all You have blessed us with, thankful to be Your child, thankful in the knowledge that we will spend eternity in heaven with You due to the work of Your Son, our Savior on the cross.
We repent the sins that caused the crucifixion of the only perfect, sinless person to walk this earth. We pray that You would deliver us from all evil, protect us from the pitfalls of this life that make us stray.
Lord, we pray for our enemies, those of foreign lands, and domestic. Enlighten those Lord, who seem to be wise, yet are fools because they teach things contrary to Your will.
Lord, as we Americans go to choose our leaders this week, we pray You will control the vote, it will be Your influence guiding Your people to go vote, and help America move towards becoming a true nation under You, worshiping You in Truth and Spirit, and acknowledging Your Son, Jesus Christ as the savior of the world, and praising His name in every school, every synagogue, every office building, every government building, and every home.
We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
