We are almost at the end of the longest primary election season in memory. And we believe it is time to ask for the Lord’s guidance, provision and healing.
Passions are high, many blows have been struck. Relationships are strained. Candidates and campaigns are under great stress as the hours wind down to Election Day on Tuesday. The stakes are high for those individuals; even higher for the People of Idaho.
We ask that you join with us in asking the Lord to bless those people who have sacrificed so much to be on the ballot. Even those with whom we disagree. After all, every candidate running is helping renew the strength of the Republic by offering us viable choices. That deserves a certain respect.
We also ask the Lord for healing of the Body Politic – especially within Idaho’s conservative community. We particularly ask for prayers on behalf of the Yates family, who have been subjected to one of the most vicious personal attacks we’ve witnessed in Idaho politics. But there is plenty of need for healing and reconciliation all over the place.
May the Lord give us wisdom and discernment.
And we ask the Lord to give us the leadership we need on Tuesday. There are children to serve and protect; rights to defend and opportunities to seize.
