Perspective and Prayer Before the Election

Do you not know? Have you not heard? … It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers … He it is who reduces rulers to nothing, who makes the judges of the earth meaningless.  Scarcely have they been planted, scarcely have they been sown, scarcely has their stock taken root in the earth, but He merely blows on them, and they wither, and the storm carries them away like stubble.  Isaiah 40 excerpts

The national election is only days away on Tuesday, November 8, when Americans will vote for not only a new president but for civil leaders across federal, state, and local governments, including judges.

There has been intense media coverage, passionate and polarized opinions, and mudslinging between candidates.  We’ve been told (again) that “this is the most important election in history.”  Whether it’s the most important is debatable, but this election is very important because the policies and laws of those in power impact society in so many ways.

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we will seek to gain a spiritual perspective on what is at stake in this election and also offer prayer for our nation and people.  Franklin Graham, the president of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association will be our guest.

NOTE: The Master’s University recently held a 90-minute forum on the election with president John MacArthur and members of their faculty.  We will play some sound bites; you can watch the video here.
