Bring It On: Election Concerns

My family and church are devastated by the results of the election. I know of more people who were praying for our country and for Mitt Romney to be elected than at any time in my life. What happened to the 2Chronicles promise? If the result ... ... Read Transcript


SPEAKING OF LOVELY, WE'VE

GOT A LOT OF QUESTIONS OUT

THERE.

SO WE'RE GOING TO JUMP RIGHT

IN.

ANITA SAYS, "MY FAMILY AND

FRIENDS ARE DEVASTATING

ABOUT THE RESULTS OF OUR

ELECTION.

I KNOW MORE PEOPLE WERE

PRAYING FOR MITT ROMNEY TO

BE ELECTED.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 2

CHRONICLES.

IF THE RESULT OF PRAYER

ISN'T GOD'S WILL, THEN WHY

BOTHER PRAYING?"

Consuelo:

Gordon: THE LORD'S

PRAYER IS THAT WE SHOULD

PRAY THAT GOD'S WILL WILL BE

DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN

HEAVEN.

THE REASON WE'RE ASKED TO

PRAY IS BECAUSE GOD'S WILL

IS NOT BEING DONE.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT IN THAT

LENS, YOU SHOULD BE

ENCOURAGED TO PRAY EVEN

MORE, AND ESPECIALLY FOR OUR

LEADERSHIP AND OUR

GOVERNMENT, REGARDLESS OF

WHO WON.

GOD IS NOT A REPUBLICAN AND

HE IS NOT A DEMOCRAT.

HE IS ABOVE ALL OF THAT.

IF WE WANT HIS BLESSINGS, WE

NEED TO PRAY IN HIS ACCORD

DANCE.

1 TIM 2: "THEREFORE I EXALT

FIRST OF ALL SUP

SUPPLECATIONS, AND PRAYERS

AND INTERCESSIONS BE GIVING

OF THANKS BUT MADE FROM ALL

MEN.

THAT WE MAY LEAD QUIET AND

PEACE OF A LIFE IN ALL

GODLINESS, FOR THIS IS THE

GOOD AND THE ACCEPTABLE IN

GOD OUR SAVIOR, WHO DESIRES

ALL MEN TO BE SAVED AND TO

COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE

TRUTH."

THAT SHOULD ENCOURAGE OUR

PRAYER LIFE.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU AND

ANYONE DISAPPOINTED IN THE

OUTCOME OF THE ELECTION,

PRAY FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA.

GIVE THANKS FOR HIM.

ASK GOD TO GIVE HIM WISDOM.

ASK GOD'S MERCY TO BE OVER

HIM.

IF WE DO THAT -- AND THERE

IS PLENTY OF PRECEDENT FOR

IT.

WHEN YOU GO BACK TO SAMUEL,

HE SAID, I WON'T SIN AND NOT

PRAY FOR YOU.

HE DIDN'T PICK PARTICULAR

PEOPLE IN ISRAEL TO PRAY FOR

AND NOT TO PRAY FOR.

HE PRAYED FOR ALL OF THEM

AND THAT GOD WOULD HAVE

MERCY ON ALL OF THEM.

WHY?

BECAUSE HE WANTED THEM

SAVED.

IF YOU UNDERSTAND IT IS

GOD'S WILL FOR ALL TO BE

SAVED, THAT WILL INFORM YOUR

PRAYER LIFE.

SO DON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

UNDERSTAND THAT GOD'S PLAN

AND PURPOSE IS STILL BEING

DONE.

AND WE'RE HIS AMBASSADORS,

AND WE'RE TO PRAY THAT HIS

WILL WILL BE

DONE ON EARTHS

IT IS IN HEAVY.

Kristi: FANTASTIC

ANSWER.

Gordon: PRAY FOR

OBAMA.

WE WERE DOING IT DURING THE

WHOLE TIME OF PRAYER UP TO

AND DURING THE ELECTION.

I PRAY FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA.

WE NEED TO PRAY FOUR HIM.

WE NEED TO PRAY FOR OUR

LEADERSHIP.

WE'RE FACING VERY DIFFICULT

TIMES, FROM AN ECONOMIC

STANDPOINT, FROM A TERRORISM

STANDPOINT, WHAT IS GOING ON

IN SYRIA, IRAN, AND ISRAEL.

WE NEED TO BE PRAYING.

Kristi: YOU'RE RIGHT.

AND WE NEED TO CAUTION

OURSELVES BECAUSE SO OFTEN

WE PUT OUR HOPE IN LEADERS

AND THE GOVERNMENT, WHEN WE

NEED TO REMEMBER THAT OUR

HOPE LIES IN THE LORD AND

THE LORD ALONE.

Gordon: MEN WILL ALWAYS

LET YOU DOWN.

THEY'LL MAKE MISTAKES.

LEADERS WILL LET YOU DOWN.

BUT WHEN YOU YOUR HOPE IN

HIM, YOU'RE IN A GOOD

PLACE.

Kristi: ABSOLUTELY.

IF I HAD A TAMBOURINE, I'D

BE SHAKING IT.

Gordon: CAN I GET A

WITNESS.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM 1 PETER 4: "ABOVE

ALL THINGS, HAVE FERVENT

LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER, FOR

LOVE WILL COVER A MULTITUDE

OF SINS."

FOR KRISTI, FOR LEE, FOR ME

AND ALL OF US, GOD BLESS

YOU.

BE IN PRAYER FOR OUR NATION,

BE IN PRAYER FOR OUR

PRESIDENT, AND LET'S SEE

WHAT GOD WILL DO.

GOD BLESS YOU.
