We the People…..
The Nov. 4th election results indicate that America is waking up! Thank you for engaging in prayer and exercising the privilege of voting. Our newly elected leaders will now have an opportunity to serve the people of this nation for such a time as this. Now is the time to double our efforts, to pray for our elected leaders, to support every effort to uphold our Constitutional freedoms and assure that America’s policies reflect the Judeo-Christian values on which it was founded.
Republicans sealed control of the Senate with more than six seats needed, a momentum Reuters suggested the GOP owes to evangelical voters.
FOX News exit polls showed that nearly 60 percent of voters who identified themselves as Protestant or Christian also identified themselves as Republican.
The Public Opinion Strategists survey reported the exit polls confirm that
1 out of 3 voters were evangelicals, and 86% voted Republican. This constituency continues to be the cornerstone of the GOP vote. This is larger than the African-American vote, the Hispanic vote, and the gay vote combined.
Forty-nine percent of evangelicals said they had a great deal of interest in the midterm elections, compared to 38 percent of other voters. Pollster George Barna estimates there are 77 million evangelical and Catholic voters in America. About 30.6 million of them supported Mitt Romney in 2012, and 20 million voted for the President.
But the troubling number is the 26 million who didn’t bother to vote at all.
A recent Pew Research study found 56 percent of Americans feel religion is losing influence in American life and say that’s a bad thing. That same study showed 49 percent of adults feel churches should express their views on social and political questions. That is up 6 percent from four years ago.’’
Lea Carawan, Executive Director of the Congressional Prayer Caucus posted this message for God’s praying people:
Our Founders and other great leaders engraved in America’s history have laid the groundwork for success: 1) invite God to intervene in the affairs of men through prayer, 2) live and lead according to the principles that promote self-government and cultural engagement, 3) trust in God to guide America through challenging circumstances.
PRAY for the well being of our government leaders, whether we agree with them or not.
1 Timothy 2:1-2, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
