Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? How All Christians Should Vote

Vote With Prayer

Whether you vote for Obama or Romney, one of these men will be the leader of our country. And regardless of how you feel about them, you are called to pray for them.

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior” ~ I Timothy 2:1-3

Pray for who to vote for. Pray for the different issues. Pray for peace among the parties. Pray for those who need a voice. Pray for whoever wins, regardless of who that is!

In fact, if you haven’t been praying for the person or party with which you disagree, then let the first time you open your mouth be in prayer to God, not in criticism to others.
