Historical Election Day in Canada

1 Timothy 2:1-4 (NLT)

(1) I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.
(2) Pray this way for kings [leaders] and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.
(3) This is good and pleases God our Savior,
(4) who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.

From scandal to scandal, war upon war, we see the world is in a steady decline. Leaders take for granted their positions and abuse their power, refugees abound, satanic religious sects perpetrate genocide, while here at home, in North America, there is a crisis of fatherlessness, selfishness, violence, immorality and an overall lack of restraint. Whatever evil we imagine, we make into law to justify our waywardness.

Today, more than ever it is important to prayerfully pick leaders who are accountable not only to the people, but to God. Those who have a moral backbone and live with integrity. Leaders who understand that liberty is not found in liberalism or an “anything goes” mentality, but in uprightness and constraint.

As a people we need to think about Canada and not just our individual, selfish desires, because the future of this nation, and the world we leave for the next generation, will be directly impacted. Don’t cast your vote today just for the sake of casting a vote. Think about it, PRAY about it.

Do you want a better Canada with strong values or a broke Canada that is morally corrupt?

The Canada I want is one that is glorious and free. I pray you want the same.

Make no mistake about it, October 19, 2015 will be an historical election day in Canada. Let us pray.

Prayer: Father in heaven, your creation is groaning for peace and rest from the tyranny and effects of bad leadership around the globe. Lord, speak to the hearts of your people in this nation, that they will not be rash, fickle or selfish in their choice for a leader. Instead, show them who it is that you will bless and use to keep this nation rooted in your principles of truth, righteousness, love and acceptance. I pray this in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.
