Pray for America, and Vote!!!

Today is Election Day in America!

We will choose between two candidates for the presidency of the United States of America.

Before you vote, pray for America. Pray that we take our opportunity to choose seriously and that in that serious consideration, we choose wisely.

In my opinion, that means voting for Sen. Barack Obama.

You may feel otherwise.

We should agree to disagree.

What we should not do is stay home.

We have a responsibility to our country, to our children, and to ourselves to exercise our right to vote. If you are eligible to vote and you did not register, or you are registered but can't be bothered, you lose the right to complain about the final choice. Just my opinion.

This is serious business. America has experienced things this year alone--in Iraq, in our financial markets, in our economy, in this presidential campaign--that no one could have predicted.

So, if you do nothing else today, pray, then VOTE!

And in your prayers, pray for healing in our nation. This has been a long, ugly, and divisive presidential campaign season. In participating around the blogosphere, I'm sure I probably screwed up some publishing opportunities and lost some potential readers. Let's hope I invited some as well. Worst of all, it may be difficult for some to see or hear Christ in me because they've hardened their hearts. But let's pray that when all is said and done, we'll remember that we are ALL Americans, grateful for the opportunity to live in the greatest nation on the planet and desirous of helping our country to continue to be the leader of the free world.

God Bless America (and all the other nations too)!

Finally, please say a word of prayer for Sen. Obama and his family on the loss of the senator's grandmother on the eve of this election.

Here's the Clark Sisters reminding us to pray...

Peace & Blessings,
