Scriptural Prayers for the Presidential Election

A lot at stakeThis list of prayers was sent to my wife by a good friend. I thought it might be helpful as you pray without ceasing for the election on November 6.

The Bible tells us that God sets up kings and God deposes kings. He is in control. (Daniel 2:20-22).

God is calling His people to “lift up holy hands without wrath and doubting” (1 Timothy 2:8) in prayer for the presidential election on November 6.  There is unlimited power in united prayer.  Pray with others whenever possible.  The power of prayer can overcome any obstacle or ungodly influence and, indeed, do great things!

If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, will heal their land.”

As we repent for ourselves and our nation (Acts 17:30), let us also pray that …

…  Christians will be motivated to pray faithfully for the election; that the Lord would deliver us from ungodly leaders. (Psalm 32:6-7)
… our nation will listen to the truth and not be led astray. (Proverbs 16:13)
… those who trust in the Lord will not be shaken. (Psalm 125)
… the Lord would defeat those who disregard Him in this election. (Psalm 86:14-17)
… the Lord would put His hands on the man of His choice (and his team) and guide them in this election. (II Kings 13:16)

… God’s man will listen with discernment, add to his knowledge, and receive wise counsel in this campaign. (Proverbs 1:5-6)
