On Wednesday, November 9th, the day after the election, a lot of people woke up to the shock of their lives. Yes, President elect Donald J. Trump had won the election. For many, this caused confusion, frustration, anger, fear, and a whole host of other feelings. 

Something to think about: Now I’m not saying that people aren’t entitled to feel the way they feel, but as we navigate through our feelings and come to grips with reality, we must remember that God still sits on the throne and He is still in full control.

So though the election may not have turned out the way we would have liked it to, it did turn out the way that God designed it to. With that in mind, we need to come together and pray for the leaders of this great country that they will be the leaders for ALL Americans, but most importantly, that they will consult and be led by God.

Prayer starter: Lord, it’s in the name of Jesus that I come, asking you to help me get to a place where I am able to accept your will for this country. The election did not yield the results that I wanted it to, but I understand that this is not about me, it is bigger than me. I pray for the leaders of this country Lord, that you would place your hedge of protection around them and their families. Use them to lead this country in the direction that you would have it to go…
