The Evil of Two Lessers (the American Presidential Race)

28 Apr

Hillary or Donald? Donald or Hillary? This presidential race Screenshot 2016-03-25 07.39.28really seems to be “the evil of two lessers,” doesn’t it?
Don’t get me wrong — I care deeply about who our next President will be. But I’m stuck with two candidates neither of whom inspires me. Neither models a strong family life. Neither holds the promise of a Chief Executive of whom I can be proud.

One frightens me and makes me feel that the terrorists of the world will need little provocation to unleash their ungodly, crazed suicide bombers on innocent American citizens. The other is awash in a history of Screenshot 2016-03-25 07.38.40integrity issues and may be indicted before the election. You see why I’m troubled.

However, the American republic is more than one person. Granted, that person can do great good or harm, and we should be on our knees praying for whoever gets elected. So we have every right to be concerned.

Several born-again believers tried to make a serious run for the White House — and have since dropped out. I admire and appreciate their efforts. So we are left with these Two.

The Christian’s hope is not in human government or Screenshot 2016-03-25 07.42.32earthly politics, but in the living God. This does not mean that we should be uncaring about the process or the conclusion of the race. But our hope, as Franklin Graham recently said, is not in the Democratic Party. And it is not in the Republican Party. It is in God. Would you join me on your knees and pray for our country?

A Prayer for the Presidential Race: “God of All Governments, we praise You that cynicism and negativity are not Your way, but rather hope and prayerful intercession for the country we love. Father, we need Your wisdom in our world and in our culture which seems to be running with utmost haste away from You and Your truth. Please give us believers Your joy and Your truth as we live in this world. Forgive our prayerlessness, Lord, and have mercy on our land. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
