(Today is day 13 of my 21-day commitment to pray for the top two Presidential candidates. Here is the original post of this series.)
Lord, this morning I pray for both candidates, their campaign decision-makers, and my country. With the election drawing closer and new recent revelations, I get the sense that this week has the potential to be the ugliest political week in America since at least the Civil War. I ask that You would show me how to be a uniter rather than a divider, an agent of peace rather than an agent of chaos, one who helps bring about healing rather than brokenness. For Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump, I ask that You speak to them as well. Protect them and us from our basest instincts towards tribalism and division, I ask.
