Praying Backwards

I interrupt the new house tour to bring you some important news. I do not like politics, especially after all we have seen over the past year. However, our nation is getting ready to face a critical moment in time. Tomorrow is election day. No matter who wins, we know things are going to get ugly. They are predicting this election to be close. This means roughly half of us will have the "Don't blame me, I didn't vote for ___________" chip on our shoulder. I'm not sure which will be worse, all the campaigning these previous years or the out lash that will happen after all the votes are counted. People will hold tight to their convictions and to the passion they had voting for their candidate and will sit back, pick apart and complain when their candidate doesn't win. And it doesn't matter which side you are on, it's going to happen. I challenge you to be the exception. Let's lay claim to a greater authority than the man in the oval office and whose higher allegiance transcends American politics.

I received this powerful information from a friend, who got it from Ragamuffin Soul. I found it very convicting and it helped me to see what I need to do. I need to pray and now I have some direction - I need to pray backwards. Will you join me?

All of the following is taken straight from his website.

I have not seen division like the one I see within the American church walls, ever. I think we need to hold tight to our moral and spiritual values, but the division that is in the air right now is MASSIVE. I honestly believe God himself is looking down upon his church and crying. So what should we do? We should pray.

Those who are voting for Obama should pray blessings over McCain. Those who are voting for McCain should be praying blessings upon Obama. We should stop moaning and complaining about inexperience, Alaska, taxes, teenage pregnancy, terrorists, wardrobes, racism, and Katie Couric. We in turn need to pray.

1. Pray our leaders would grow in faith.
2. Pray our leaders would grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

2. Pray for their marriages.

3. Pray for their children.
4. Pray for those around them.
5. Pray for their emotional and physical health.
6. Those on the left pray for McCain.
7. Those on the right pray for Obama.

We will continue tomorrow with the new house tour!
