Tomorrow is the big day.  It will determine what will happen in the next 4, possibly 8, years.  I know who I’m voting for, but I also know that regardless of who votes for who, ultimately God’s will…will be done.  I rediscovered a song this week by the Christian group, Avalon, titled “If My People Pray”.  I thought it was pretty fitting for our here and now.  Here are the lyrics:

 

Now is the season for healing
Deeply we need to see God’s mercy revealing
Where we have fallen from His way
For we know He gives hope to the humble
Gives light in the darkness
And grace when we stumble
Let us call on His name together

Knowing He will say … If My people pray
And reach for Me with hearts that are broken
I will not forget what I’ve spoken
Come and seek My face

And heaven will rain Rivers of My grace overflowing
Night and day My ears will be open
If My people pray Now is the day to awaken
To pray with conviction
For the souls of the nation
So let us call on His name
Whose faithful promise still remains ..

If My people pray
(If My people who are called by My name)
And reach for Me with hearts that are broken
(Humble themselves and pray)
I will not forget what I’ve spoken
Come and seek My face (Seek Me)

And heaven will rain (If My people who are called by My name)
Rivers of My grace overflowing (Turn from their wicked ways)
Night and day My ears will be open
If My people pray
Let us not grow weary as we wait for the day
When the light turns our night into morning
On our knees, calling Your name as we lift our hearts to heaven Yeah,
knowing You will say …

 

 

May every knee bow between now and tomorrow evening.  I know some area churches are leaving their doors open until then for people to come in and pray, should they choose to do so.  I believe there’s strength in numbers.  If prayer has the power to move mountains, I know it can win an election.  I’m on the edge of my seat, as so many Americans are.  God Bless this nation…may it be restored to what it was intended to be.
