Prayers for Evangelical Believers:
A Prayer for a Christian Candidate Running for Elected Office
by Ed Vasicek
You move in the hearts of people to accomplish your sovereign will. During an election, every candidate feels she or he is the best choice, or they would not be running for office. Sometimes You do not always want the best person to win, because your purposes and plans are very complex. We would like to believe that most of the time, however, You do want the more ethical and wiser individual to serve. You want your children to vote wisely, with conviction. We pray, Lord, that if I am the best candidate, and if it is Your sovereign will, that you would allow me to serve my constituents by being elected. But what is most important is Your will, not mine. And that is what I ask for. Help me to do my part with enthusiasm, and then to rest in Your hands, I pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
