A friend posted a photo of a stack of election-driven mail. I could hear his fatigue in the caption that said, “None of these candidates seem to speak for the trees. This is from only a few day’s mail. Please stop stuffing my mailbox.” I couldn’t help but agree with the sentiment – I am tired of the swirl of messages all wanting to persuade my vote. I have to counsel myself to not lose hope, to pay attention to the issues, and to pray.
Are your listeners tired, angry, or confused about the upcoming election? Jim Daly offers this prayer:
“Father in Heaven — Help us remember that, as Your peculiar people, we Christians have always been strangers and sojourners on the earth. Remind us that it is not our job to direct the destinies of nations, but simply to shine for You, reflect Your image, and bloom for Christ wherever You choose to plant us.”
Help your listeners shine for God, reflect His image, and bloom for Christ when they go to the polls this coming Election Day, November 6. Here are three easy ways:
