If My People

Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust. Acts 14:23
If the great Paul and Barnabas needed to fast and pray before selecting church leaders, then we 21st Century Christians certainly should do the same when voting for political leaders in the US. We do not want a church run by the state or a state run by a church, but we do need leaders who will make wise decisions for all, not just for their own personal gain. Since none of us know what is really in the heart of any person other than ourselves and since we have no control over vote counting procedures, we must rely on Divine help. Pray today and tomorrow for elections at every level. We must start the job of turning our ship of state around to a better direction.
