What do we do about the election? by Pastor Paul

Many people are lamenting the results of Tuesday's election.  It would be easy to bury your head in the sand or run screaming into the night.  Neither of these is a Christian response.

Two thousand years ago the Apostle Paul gave us a clear and simple word!

1 Timothy 2:1-4 (NLT)
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people.
Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 
Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority
so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.
This is good and pleases God our Savior,
who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.

Pray that our President, Vice President, Governors, Mayors, Congress, Senate, Legislature's, City Counsels, and all the Judges will hear God's voice, know His ways, and walk in His path!  Pray that our leaders will embrace the principles and teaching of the Scriptures and apply them to the day to day decisions of governing.

Pray that all Americans may enjoy peaceful and quiet lives
marked by godliness and dignity!

Blessings to all,
Pastor Paul
