The elections….

With the upcoming elections, I thought that I should say something about them. No, I am not going to tell you how to vote. What I will tell you is to pray. PRAY HARD!! In my opinion neither candidate is ideal, and that’s why I feel that it is important to pray.

Kari and I went to see Scott Hahn speak last weekend. One of the things that he said was “We do more for our country by attending Mass than we do in the voting booth.” He is absolutely right! We need to spend time with Christ praying for the future of our country. The economy is fragile, the future of the government is uncertain, I would even go so far as to say that the freedoms that this country was founded on are at risk.

So, what do we pray for? Do we pray that McCain becomes president? Or Obama for that matter? No. We pray that Our Lord and Savior will touch the hearts of whomever becomes the next leader of our country. We pray that God will work through that individual (and all in government) to do His will. We pray that the leaders of this nation will get down on their knees and pray to the Lord for guidance and strength. We pray that God’s will be done, no matter how much it may bring us pain and suffering.

I invite all of you to take the next several days and pray. Pray for the will of God to be done in our lives and in our country. I, myself, am planning on spending election day praying and fasting for our country. Join me in this prayer and fast if you wish. God bless you all and God bless our country.

  1. It may sound ridiculous, but, from my disenchantment with presidential politics, I’ve contemplated the idea of a president-less political system. There would still be three branches of government, only the executive would be a group of elected representatives rather than a single individual. Might sound strange, but I even introspected conspiracy theories to justify that that is what the founders aimed the system to evolve into. Don’t tell any future employers I said that though, ha!
