|God is Ruler of all and our votes on earth should honor Him and protect the weakest among us|
|Written by Marie Bowen|
Psalm 72 gives us a glimpse into what we are to desire in a godly leader:
In our reality we find few if any leaders rise to those standards.
Still, it is our privilege and duty to pray that God will supply rulers with those qualities and principles. Disengagement is not an option. In America we do have a voice and we are not powerless. We have opportunity to elect our leaders, to influence even those whom we did not choose, and always to pray.
A PPL supporter recently forwarded a prayer email she received from The Family Research Council. Rev. Pierre Bynum, Chaplain & National Prayer Director, had this to say of the November Election:
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council writes in the fall issue of Uniting for Life:
Priests for Life has produced a helpful guide to the positions of the Republican and Democratic parties on a variety of issues. The guide is designed and legally approved (see letter on the website) for use by churches and 501(c)3 organizations. Permission to print and distribute is granted. You can download the resource here.
Presbyterians believe and proclaim that God is Sovereign. Come election day no one will rise to power without God's initiative. Our lives, born and unborn, are ultimately not dependent on political rulers but on Jesus Christ who holds us body and soul forever. Work hard. Engage. Vote faithfully. Do not lose hope. Trust in God.
