PRAYER Rx --- November 3
Dear Lord, as citizens of this special nation which with Your help has survived over 200 years, we each have both a privilege and a responsibility. It is our government -- "of the people, by the people, and for the people." We are the ones who choose the future direction for our country. ... Let us put politics aside, as we prayerfully seek Your guidance, let us ask: "Would You want us to choose leaders who will set examples of integrity, dependability, and accountability for our youth and for our citizens? Would You want us to choose leaders who will help us restore the moral climate which our nation has lost?" ... Let us seriously consider whether we really want more government control, leading us to socialism, or whether we want to maintain our freedom. ... Remind us that we are facing a critical time in our history. Let us paraphrase President Kennedy's words: "Let us not ask what our government can do for us, but rather what we can do to improve our government." Help us, Lord, to see that we have often neglected our responsibilities, as citizens, by not seeking Your guidance.
In Jesus' name we pray.
