Dear Friend of the Christian Action League,
This morning I was awakened in the dead of night and felt called of God to get up and pray for our nation and the coming election. I agree with Don Wildmon of the American Family Association who recently said: “If the liberals win the election… This ‘city set on a hill’ which our forefathers founded, will go dark. The damage will be deep and long lasting.”
Indeed it will. But we can never give up. If Christ lives, so does hope. The resurrection is God’s testimony of the alchemy of his grace to redeem any situation and provide our greatest triumphs.
Let me take this opportunity to urge you to also pray for our nation and the coming election. This Sunday, pastors should not only urge their members to be informed and cast a vote consistent with their Christian values (The two articles in this week’s Update – Voters Could Miss Out, Bob Steinberg’s, Emotion Often Clouds Judgment, and the North Carolina Family Policy Council’s Voter’s Guide are great resources for making an intelligent vote) but they should call for concerts of prayer by Sunday School classes, prayer groups, worship services, family and friends.
There is much at stake in this election such as the possible advancement of abortion and gay rights, less freedom by Christians in the public arena, national security, and a far swing to the leftist policies of socialism.
Besides making sure we “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s” by casting our vote on Tuesday, there is nothing more strategic that we can do now than to pray. Abraham Lincoln once confessed: “I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day.”
I believe that’s exactly where many concerned Citizen Christians find themselves at this critical moment in American history. Now is the time to pray, confessing our own many shortcomings and asking God to show mercy on our great land.
