For us at Faith and Fasting, today will round out 50 hours fasting for the American election on this day, November 6, 2018. God said the prayers of the righteous are very effective (James 5:16), and Jesus revealed praying and fasting is the way to rid a stubborn evil spirit (Mark 9:29), making it the true, secret weapon of the believer!
God bless every one who develops this ancient discipline. It isn’t easy at first, but the rewards are to unleash all of Heaven’s power against the enemy. Now, let’s pray for the election today.
Prayers for the Election:
Dear Jesus, we praise You, Holy One! Thank You for the blessings You pour out on us every day! We surrender to You now and ask You to fill us with Your Spirit.
We come before you now to lift up the American elections. Please surround Your people with Your angels today at every polling place. Prevent all enemies from attacking or intimidating Americans from exercising their right to vote.
Lord, please prevent and expose fraud and cheating at the polls. Let their efforts come to nothing.
Lord, favor Your loyal followers in every race! Choose each leader to bring blessing and peace to America, to keep her safe for Your people and a beacon of hope to the world.
Please reward those candidates who will safeguard law and order in order to protect Your nation. Also, promote those who have Your heart for people, and who seek Your wisdom in setting policy and agenda.
We place our precious nation in Your mighty hands and trust you with the results this day. Thank You for loving us, for taking our sin upon Yourself on the Cross, for giving us Your Spirit to love and guide us.
We praise You, in Jesus’ name,
9 I took you from the ends of the earth,
from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, ‘You are my servant’;
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
11 All who rage against you
will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
will be as nothing and perish.
12 Though you search for your enemies,
you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, ‘Do not fear;
I will help you.’
