2008 Election
A Prayer for Our Upcoming Election

Please share your prayers for a peaceful election process on Tuesday, November 4th.

As we approach Election Day, I would like all to join me in a petition for peace. Let us focus our minds on gathering together peacefully whether we are Democrat, Republican, Independent or Green. Help us to be patient in long lines and courteous to volunteers on Election Day. Let none of us thrust our agenda upon others, but let us seek to be peacemakers on the day that will determine the future of our country. Let us use knowledge, wisdom, and discernment as we approach our voting booth and be ever mindful of the decision we make and how it will affect millions. And as we walk away from the voting booth and out of the precinct, let us be prayerful for the man who will be selected as the next President of the United States of America. Whoever it will be, let it be well with our souls.

Lord Jesus I touch and agree with the prayer request about Voting Day. I loose the blood of Jesus North,South,East,and West. Give the workers the strength in their spirit,soul,and body. I pray that people are courteous and kind to one another. Lord not our will, But your will be done. I pray protection for the man that will be the next President, His Family, that no hurt,harm,or danger come nigh them. May people be protected driving to the polls. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.(Matthew 5:16). In Jesus Name. Amen

May God guide us to pick properly, and may He heal the rifts in this country no matter who wins. Amen!

My prayer is our country be lead in another direction. We surely need this change, because I don't believe we can handle anymore of what we have already had, if this happens GOD help us all! !


11/1/2008 07:43

My prayer is for God to guide us in our decisions to pick ALL the proper candidates--not only the president.

11/1/2008 15:23

God's Will be done.In Jesus' name. Amen

Mother/Father God, may Election day bring us the future you have always seen for us. May we make choices that will bring peace, joy, prosperity, abundance, freedom, hope, togetherness, and positive change not just to our country, but to the world.
As I release this word to the universe, I know it is not in vein. I know that it is spoken in truth and cannot return void.

So let it be. So it is. Amen

Dear Heavenly Father: Let your government crush and put an end to all the corrupt earthly governments. May your name be put on high, may your will take place in heaven as it is being done on earth. Thank you for the food you provided even though it is becoming increasingly hard to feed our children and thank you for this day of life you have brought all of us. We forgive the devious people in our lives that do not know "the way to be" and have slandered and stole from us, so please...forgive us for our sins. Help us stay on the straight and narrow path as we live in demonic times where our earthly government you have been putting up has lied to us and used us and not had our best interests at heart like you do. Vengeance is yours and we pray that you will put a cap on the government racketeering in the USA. If we have 4 more years after 8 of total financial ruin due to a wealthy and corrupt party, we pray your vengeance comes swiftly. This I pray in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

I implore God alone, i beseech Him alone in my time of need and now I pray to the One and Only God, the First and the Last, the Innermost and the Outermost, the Truth.
I pray if Obama wins, he has the courage to speak up against the lies they conceal about 9-11, God willing, even if it means they take his life because of it.

Who is the One who rescues those who become desperate and call upon Him, relieves adversity, and makes you inheritors of the earth?" (27:62)

"Anyone who reverences God, He will create an exit for him."

I am a witness of these statements, events in my life are a witness to these verses.

God bless you
And peace be upon you

Lord God in Heaven we know that you have all Power and will help our newly elected President to Serve our Great Country with Determination and Honesty, to always do what is right and to serve the American People tirelessly.

I pray Lord God that you direct the people of this great nation to vote their conscience and to consider all that is at stake...

I have faith that the man who wins this election is the man you have ultimately chosen to fullfill your promises.

As American Citizens whether we agree with the candidate elected or not I hope that we have respect and clarity that ultimately it is your will that he serve this great country.

Be with us Lord on Tuesday November 4, 2008 direct our thoughts and our actions lead us into your will as we vote in this very important election...

Soften our hearts to hear your voice as we elect our new officials and vote on the propositions that will affect our Country and Communities.

Thy will be done...

I am loyally subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except from God (by his permission, His sanction) and those who exist do so by God's appointment. ROMANS 13:1

Get out the Vote America and vote for who you feel will do not only the will of the People but the will of God.

Today I will hear His voice ... and harden not my heart. PSALM 95: 7-8

God Bless America!

Gita 4,7,
"Whenever righteousness falters and chaos threathens to prevail, I take on a human body and manifest myself on earth.

In order to protect the good, to destroy the evil,
to ensure the triumph of righteousness,
in every age I am born."

Please God let Obama win and help us change this country to a place where EVERONE is respected.

May we all understand our oneness….no matter our religious or political persuasion…nor the color of our skin…nor any of those things which we hold as “differences” in our minds regarding our brothers and sisters on this planet…may we just each realize our own personal gift that lives in us and that we have to offer to the world at large…may we realize more fully each day that pure and perfect “light that lights every man who comes into the world” and that it is alive within our very own souls right at this very moment…may we understand how we need to just “be” and allow that light to connect with our fellow earth travelers….looking more for common ground in that pure and perfect universal light… than for the differences that the illusion of separation and fear might sometimes seek to impart to us at times…may we keep in our minds eye always…that the very idea of anything really separating us as the human family is an illusion…may we reach out now more than ever…no matter the outcome of this election…to connect with our fellow man….with that beautiful pure love and compassion that is emerging as a very “alive” and vibrant force in many people today…and is only lying in shallow dormancy and ever so much wishing to emerge at the from its threshold inside everyone on this planet…may this be so and so it is…

I would like to pray for Sarah Palin and the wounds she has no doubt suffered from her fellow citizens, just for saying "yes" when asked to do something for her country. I hope she finds consolation in her beautiful Lord's reminder: "Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of slader against you because of Me. Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is great in heaven."

11/2/2008 16:15

Please God let Obama win. We don't need another Bush...

11/2/2008 21:36

I am an ardent Democrat and will be voting for Barack Obama.

My prayer is for the health and safety of both Barack Obama and John McCain, whoever wins. An attempt to kill Barack Obama could literally cause a civil war. I'll be charitable and leave unstated what could happen if John McCain were to win and then pass.

God, if you're out there somewhere, please don't let anyone get hurt. Some people are getting pretty worked up this year.

11/3/2008 08:45

Lord, please help this country heal from the us versus them mentatlity, from the who's a "real American" mentality, and from the racism that is still subtle and pervasive.

Dearest and truest Source/Spirit/God

Let us look BEYOND personalities and parties and political sides into the Oneness of Who We Are in the One Infinite Mind and Heart of God.

Let us not be partisan, but fully human and fully open to the Divine Influx of Being, as Peace, as Love, as Awareness, as Respect for the Divine Idea of Humanity.

Let us, dear Beloved One, be open to the Highest and Greatest Good that You alone fully represent, as we drop all nonsense and judgment of others based on temporary ideas of race, class, gender, or history. Let us drop our BS (belief systems) if they create disharmony, and be open to the Harmony that You bring to us.

Let us BE our True Selves, beyond all the noise.

In Your True Holiness, let us be real and truly committed to the blessings of Peace, Joy, and Goodness, by being committed to You in our hearts.

I love You with all of me.

And so it is.

Dear Creator,

Please watch over Barack Obama and his family.. please keep them safe, and protected from those forces that would silence hope and courage and change.

Please, Creator, infuse your children with the courage and strength required to act, to stand, to vote for the unity of love and respect that this time in our world needs so badly, and please, Creator... accept my humble gratitude for allowing me, and others, to be both audience and participant to this momentous opportunity, and time, of profound change.
