It’s Time to Pray

More than anything, we need to get on our knees and pray for this election. The Presidential Prayer Team is doing a “Pray the Vote” campaign. Go there and sign up for their “virtual prayer rally” they’re having on Monday, 11/1. This from their website:

In this election year, the need for prayer is as great as ever. Toward
that end, The Presidential Prayer Team is encouraging prayer for the elections
through a new initiative, Pray the VoteTM. The goal of Pray the VoteTM is
simply to stimulate prayer for the fall elections. Believing that when
Americans pray we open a window for God to work in our nation, we urge you to
get involved. The right to vote—and to vote your values—is one of the most
cherished privileges of citizenship.

my salvation, You have covered my head in the day of battle. 8 "Do not

{that} they {not} be exalted. Selah. 9 "As for the head of those who
surround me, May the mischief of their lips cover them. 10 "May burning
coals fall upon them; May they be cast into the fire, Into deep pits from which
they cannot rise. 11 "May a slanderer not be established in the earth; May
evil hunt the violent man speedily." 12 I know that the LORD will maintain
the cause of the afflicted And justice for the poor. 13 Surely the
righteous will give thanks to Your name; The upright will dwell in Your
