Proverbs 29:2 “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
Daniel Webster went on to say (see the previous post):
“If [our] government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine Commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the Laws.”
Webster reminds us that our public prosperity and happiness are based upon our votes. The electoral tally determines all. As Christian citizens, may we not neglect the Divine Commands.
But what can we do a year out from the election? We can pray to uplift the right candidates and purge the wrong ones. We can pray that the Christian voice would be heard in all electoral decisions. We can vote in primaries to cultivate and cull the field of candidates. We can pray for revival and repentance on the campaign trail (in both parties). We can pray that faithful Christian candidates will rise to the top (in both parties). We can let our voices be heard such that all the candidates know that Christians will not stay home on Election Day, and instead we will vote en masse in accordance with Biblical values.
PLEASE PRAY FOR THE ENTIRE AMERICAN ELECTORAL PROCESS. If we fail to do so, then we are neglecting our most basic citizenship responsibilities and neglecting God’s commands.
