Election Day | Julie

In Blog, Julie by Josh

It’s Election Day. It’s an uncertain time for our nation. And it’s easy for us to feel hopeless. But our God is able. He is able to change hearts. He is able to do miracles. He is in control. And we can’t lose sight of that. We might feel useless. Diminishing not only the power of our vote, but the power of prayer. Billy Graham said, “It is a great privilege, as well as our responsibility, to pray for our government leaders.”

Billy Graham has a Prayer Guide sharing how to pray for our leaders. And these prayers are based on scripture!
