Join us in praying for GRACE in Politics...



Everyone knows I love RagamuffinSoul.com, I don't always agree with him, he's way more edgy then I am, which is not an easy task but nonetheless, his blog is amazing.

Well he's really stepped it up this day before a very historical election. He's calling all us Christians together to pray. As he so eloquently says;

"We are going to turn off the news, open our Bibles, and pray for our leaders."


Here's some of what he said on his post....

I have not seen division like I see within the American church walls, ever.
I think we need to hold tight to our moral and spiritual values, but the division that is in the air right now is MASSIVE.
We have the technology to hide behind our 140 characters at a time or anonymous blog comments or venom filled blog posts.
We are saying things to each other that we would never say in person.
I honestly believe God himself is looking down upon his church and crying.
So what should we do?
We should pray.
Those who are voting for Obama should pray blessings over McCain.
Those who are voting for McCain should be praying blessings upon Obama.
We should stop moaning and complaining about inexperience, Alaska, taxes, teenage pregnancy, terrorists, wardrobes, racism, and Katie Couric.
We in turn need to pray...

PRAY NONPARTISAN
1. Pray that our leaders would grow in Faith. In their relationships with Jesus Christ.
2. Pray for their marriages.
3. Pray for their children.
4. Pray for those around them.
5. Pray for their emotional and physical health.
6. Those on the left pray blessing on McCain, those on the right pray for Obama.

So please join us tonight at 8:30pm Central time at http://www.ragamuffinsoul.com/
if you would like to live stream your prayers with a group of us. Or just take an hour to pray backwards, you know as Jesus said,
"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.."
Matthew 5:42-44

I was praying for our candidates last night. I prayed for McCain to win and Obama to lose. Then I prayed that God's will be done in either case.
