(Today is day 5 of my 21-day commitment to pray for the top two Presidential candidates. Here is the original post of this series.)
“In the Lord’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water
that he channels toward all who please him.
A person may think their own ways are right,
but the Lord weighs the heart.
To do what is right and just
is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.”–Proverbs 21:1-3
Lord, today I am reminded that You can use Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, or anyone else to accomplish your purposes. I pray that their hearts and minds would be turned towards You and that they would know You, love You, and follow You. I pray that they would do what is right and just, but even if they do not, I pray that You would use them. I also pray for all who know, love, and follow You, that you would give Your people peace in our souls in knowing that no matter who is inaugurated on January 20th, You will remain on the throne.
