Heavenly Father, Please forgive our toleration for sin in America. We have tolerated the breakdown of the family in America—easy divorce, no fault divorce, children born out of wedlock, abortion on demand, education that stresses conformity rather than elevating individual intellectual development, too many television programs that promote violence and immoral behavior, programs that are viewed by all ages at all hours of the day. We have problems trusting media—we can hardly trust any story because of the bias that goes into reporting stories. We have great difficulty with our “leaders” in elected office who never underspend a budget but consistently overspend and demand more and more money from hardworking taxpayers.
We find immorality just about everywhere and not enough repentance, confession or forgiveness.
“SO SHOW YOUR STRENGTH NOW, LORD. DO WHAT YOU SAID: THE LORD DOESN’T BECOME ANGRY QUICKLY, BUT HE HAS GREAT LOVE. HE FORGIVES SIN AND LAW BREAKING. BUT THE LORD NEVER FORGETS TO PUNISH GUILTY PEOPLE. . . BY YOUR GREAT LOVE, FORGIVE THESE PEOPLE’S SIN . . .” Numbers 14: 17-19 (NLT)
Your Word states that You never forget to punish guilty people. Too many legislators are guilty of stealing taxpayer dollars for their own benefit and for the benefit of their campaign contributors. Too many legislators vote contrary to the wishes of their own constituents and refuse to even consider a difference of opinion. We pray that dishonorable legislators will be voted out of office by honest citizens who will overwhelm every effort to cast illegal and fraudulent votes for this election. And once they are removed from elected office, only You can determine appropriate consequences for them.
The election is coming up in less than two weeks. We pray that candidates with strong morals and ethics will be elected throughout the land. We pray that voters everywhere will open their eyes to the election platform of dishonorable incumbents. That voters will seek truth, find truth and cast their votes for candidates who seriously take their oath of office to Defend and Protect the Constitution of the United States. We look to You for this provision that to safeguard America and her citizens. In Jesus’ Name ~ Amen
