Pray the Vote Prayer Points

Pray for:

* God's Will to be done
* Godly and righteous leaders to rise up
* Citizens to desire godly leaders
* Discernment-for the electorate and for leaders
* Wise involvement by all Americans
* An ability to see the truth
* Avoidance of negativity
* Protection over the candidates, conventions, delegates and the nation
* Truth in the media
* Responsible citizenship
* Excellent voter turnout
* Accuracy in the voting machinery and officials

O God, Your plans are firm, faithful and forever. The purposes of Your heart prevail through all the generations. Let Your mighty, perfect will be done in the elections this fall.
--Psalm 33:11

O Lord, bring righteous people who fear You to lead our nation into the future. Establish godly leaders who glorify You as they lead, and let their tenure be as welcome as the light of morning at sunrise and like the brightness after rain that brings green grass to the earth.
--II Samuel 23:3-4

O Lord, grant that wicked and evil influences will be weak and impotent in their efforts at bringing down the candidates for election. Usher into authority those who are committed to leading with righteousness.
--Proverbs 25:5

Heavenly Father, You promise to bless us with rejoicing when righteous leaders are in charge. So we ask You for godly, good leaders who will bring joy to those they lead. Do not allow any wicked persons to gain public office in this fall's elections, but only those who will honor You.
--Proverbs 29:2

My Lord, You value so deeply the qualities of good judgment and discernment, but it is easy for us to lose sight of them. Guide all those who will vote in this year's elections a sense of discernment and sound judgment, and let that discernment in turn bring discerning leaders into office.
--Proverbs 3:21

Lord God, during election time it is easy to get wrapped up in the negative, in fault-finding, criticism and contentiousness. Cause our hearts to be sweet and pure, obediently acting as You want Your children to act, so no one can find fault. In this way, we can shine for you in our darkened world.
--Philippians 2:14-15

Mighty God, we look to You for protection and safe keeping, especially during the days leading up to this fall's elections. Keep the candidates, the conventions, the delegates and the media safe from every kind of harm, O Lord, and deliver us from any evil plots that have been arranged. Let no weapon that is formed against our nation or our leaders prosper.
--Psalm 32:7, Isaiah 54:17

Father God, You love truth and are displeased with lies. Grant a spirit of truthfulness in the elections, particularly on the part of all media. Grant a spirit of fairness and honesty in the reports created by all members of the media, and give discernment and wisdom to citizens as they seek information from the media.
--Proverbs 12:22

O God, You are actively involved in every part of Your creation at every moment. Grant to all Americans a willingness to get involved in the upcoming elections, resisting complacency and passivity. Let each one know the value of his or her vote, and let each one exercise their privilege with diligence and faith.
--Amos 6:1

Lord we ask for fairness and justice in the balloting procedures as our citizens vote this fall. May it be just and equitable, revealing the truth with clarity.
--Proverbs 1:3
