A Time for Prayer
Prayer team, shall we be bold enough to believe that there is a direct correlation between the Super Saturday results and our being united in prayer for these 15 weeks?
One thing for sure, we come humbly before our Lord with grateful hearts.
As you are aware, we are in the midst of the most crucial weeks of the campaign. Our intercessions are ongoing and you, committed prayer warriors, have proven that you will not grow weary in lifting our nation, Ted, his family, his staff, faith leaders …and voters before our Lord’s throne of grace.
We’ve seen over and over again Almighty God foiling the plans of those out to destroy Ted and his campaign for President of the United Sates.
We are confident that these times are in God’s hands; we have seen His deliverance from the hands of Ted’s enemies, from those who pursue him (from Psalm 31:15). And we trust to our Heavenly Father the remaining primaries and caucuses because He alone does great wonders, for His mercy endures forever (from Psalm 136:4).
This week our prayer focus is Campaign Events. A sample prayer is provided for each month remaining before the Republican Convention. Use it as a guide or better yet follow the leading of the Holy Spirit as you call on the Lord to cause voters to choose righteousness over compromise.
Suggestion: Print these prayer points and keep them near your personal “war room.”
March: Oh God, I lift before You _________ (name each state) and its voters that each person discerns the difference between Your Kingdom and the kingdom of this world. Remind them of Your word in Jeremiah 9:23-24: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

April: Heavenly Father, we are your people; You are our God. You search for men and women among our nation’s citizens who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before You for the land (from Ezekiel 22:30). Count me as one who stands in the gap for Ted Cruz and his campaign for President of the United States – a man who I believe will help turn this “land” back to You.

June and July: Dear God, we pray together during this election season for the sake of the the Gospel, in order that we may participate in it and share in its blessings along with You. We know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So we boldly ask that as Ted Cruz runs, he will complete this race with the prize. And then, Lord, hold him close so that he’ll never forget that he ran the race for the sake of the Gospel which comes with a crown of eternal blessedness that cannot wither (from I Corinthians 23-25).
