After last week’s election, most voters were optimistic that their newly elected leaders would cease this opportunity to make a difference. Several days later, it appears that many career politicians have reverted to their former ways. Add in a rogue president who disregards the constitution and citizens become helpless.
In a whirlwind of disappointment, I was reminded of a simple solution, prayer. Scouring over the Psalms of David, there is nearly a prayer for each emotion you encounter. Whether you feel betrayed, running for your life or in need of divine intervention, help is just a prayer away.
For those of us who struggle to let go, yearning to take control of daily situations, there is one truth you can’t ignore: the Lord reigns over heaven and earth. Although you may not like the path America is going down or the road God has chosen for you, there is still time to act. If you’re feeling helpless like me, don’t let the sun go down without crying out to the Lord. In the end, warriors of prayer will usher God’s ultimate will into existence.
