Pray! And don't forget to vote.

Cool Mountain Day
"Cool Mountain Day" ~ Hand colored rural scene from the Blue Ridge mountains.~

"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty."
~1 Timothy 2:1-2

It's Fall!  Glorious in color! A new season!
It's also a new season for leadership-- to be given a vote of confidence, or be changed for new ideas and policies.
In this election season, let's not forget that we should be praying for our elected officials.  We should do our due diligence to be sure we are informed about who we are voting for, and regardless of who is elected, we should be keeping them lifted up in prayer.

All leadership needs prayer.
It doesn't matter if it's local or national elections. Pray about these things. 
They are important to our present and future.
Ask God for the wisdom to make good choices.  Don't wait until election day to choose at the polls or decide not to go at all.
And don't stop praying after the elections.  Once leaders are in office, they need prayer more than ever to govern with wisdom and in the best interest of the nation, presently and in the future.

"If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him."
~James 1:5
