What is at Stake in the Midterm Elections*
The upcoming hearings for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh highlight the importance of our national midterm elections. A number of states will elect new U.S. Senators who will vote on the confirmation of numerous federal judges, including the likelihood of one or more Supreme Court justices.1
In the Midterm General Elections, November 6, 2018, Americans will vote on:
- 35 U.S. Senators
- ALL 435 U.S. House of Representatives seats
- 39 Governors
- 7 Mayors of major U.S. cities
- Numerous state and local offices (Check your Secretary of State’s website for local election details.)
“First of all, I encourage you to make petitions, prayers, intercessions, and prayers of thanks for all people, for rulers, and for everyone who has authority over us. Pray for these people so that we can have a quiet and peaceful life always lived in a godly and reverent way. This is good and pleases God our Savior. He wants all people to be saved and to learn the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:1-4; GWT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Pray that people will become well informed on where candidates stand on the issues and will seriously seek You in how they vote.
- Lord, please watch over the integrity of the voting system; protect the casting and counting of every ballot.
- Pray for the Holy Spirit to fill the voting booths and guide people as they vote.
- Remind your family and friends to make sure they are registered to vote. Post a Register to Vote site on the social media sites you use.
A prayer you can pray:
Heavenly Father, today we lift before You the upcoming midterm elections. We pray that Believers will become well informed on where candidates stand on the issues and will seriously seek You in how to vote. By Your Holy Spirit, awaken huge numbers of godly people who will turn out to vote. Lord, we pray that Your Spirit will fill the voting booths and guide people as they vote. Let them make sure they are registered to vote and remind all their family members and friends to get registered, as well. In Jesus’ name, amen.
God’s people will pray and VOTE!
