I started following the political process when I was 10 years old The first election I followed was in 1952: Stevenson and Ike. During this election year some things come to mind from scripture. I will not discuss specific candidates (you don’t talk about politics and religion)!!

What comes to mind is from Proverbs 2:6-8 and Psalm 67.

“For the Lord gives wisdom, knowledge and understanding. He guards the course of the just and protects the way of the faithful ones.” “May God be gracious to (our country) and bless us and make his face shine on us. May the nations be glad and sing for joy and guide the nations of the earth”.

We need to pray for our country and God’s wisdom and God’s guidance for the new leaders to be elected. Todd Garrison
