Prayerfully Speaking

Hope from the Truths of God's Word

Living, Voting & Praying Biblically

I’m one of the least political people on the face of the earth. The knowledge I do have about our candidates for President of the United States is courtesy of  my darling husband and his friendship with Fox News.

I don’t trust what I hear on ads, in debates, or on the news. can I get a witness?

Dr. David Jeremiah got my attention with his Election Message. Most pastors avoid directing their congregations on how to vote. I don’t blame them. But I applaud Jeremiah’s courage and boldness. He explains, “The spiritual and biblical issues that are at stake in this election are so critical that I believe I would be sinful not to speak about them.”

In this sermon, he answered for me so many questions regarding voting when the two choices are less than Christian – aka – followers of Jesus Christ.

I’ve embedded it here for you and trust that you will be inspired and educated by what he has to say. Please share this video if you feel led. The sermon starts at 40 minutes into the video.

In this message, he gives biblical references that guide us to live out our faith in the upcoming election. Here are a few:

Exodus 18:21

Moreover, look for able men from all the people, men who fear God, who are trustworthy and hate a bribe, and place such men over the people as chiefs of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens.

2 Samuel 23:3

The God of Israel has spoken;     the Rock of Israel has said to me: When one rules justly over men, ruling in the fear of God,

Proverbs 29:2

When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan.

The prayer of my heart is that our country, especially our leaders, will fulfill 2 Chronicles 7:14

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

I’m grateful to live in a country where I can share this video with you. And I’m grateful that our God has more power than any elected man.

Daniel 2:21

He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;

How does David Jeremiah’s sermon encourage you? inspire you? I would love to know if it helped you.

I’m a simple wife who has discovered God’s amazing gift of prayer. Here at Prayerfully Speaking I share my journey of unwrapping this gift. God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you’ve ever imaged.

    Looking forward to watching the video. Bill and I love David Jeremiah. Thank you for pulling out the verses that you did. We have already voted for our candidate but I struggled because of his religion. God used the verses you shared to calm my soul. Just the ones I needed to be reminded of.

    Thanks, Jennifer! 🙂
