A Dare To Pray For President [elect] Trump

Last night millions were glued to their tvs as they waited to hear who would become our next United States President. It was a long night. A nail-biter for sure. Some thrilled with the outcome. Others disappointed. Some excited to see what good will come next. Others terrified of what is to come.

I am not here to talk politics. I am not a political person by any means. I am also not here to support or bash one side, nor one politician.

What I am here to do is to dare you. Yes, dare you.

A dare to pray for President Trump, Vice-President Pence and America. #prayfortrump #prayforpence #prayforAmerica #UnitedStatesofAmerica #USA

Whether you like Donald Trump or not, whether you voted for Donald Trump or not, and whether you are angry he won or excited he won, the truth remains that he did in fact win the election. For the next 4 years no matter how you feel about this man, he is our President and Mike Pence is our Vice-President.

So friend, today I dare you. I dare you to pray for Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families. I am not talking prayers that they would fail or that something would happen to them. I am talking real prayers. Prayers that God would lead them, guide them, and give them wisdom. Prayers that God would cover them and protect them. Prayers that they would be honorable, honest, upstanding and full of integrity. Prayers that their health would be well and their families united and strong.

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers,
intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings
and ALL WHO ARE IN AUTHORITY, that we may lead a quiet and
peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and
acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.
1 Timothy 2:1-3

In addition to praying for our new President and Vice-President, I dare you to pray for our country. Really pray. Pray that the people would turn to God. That the Christians would rise up. That we would stand up for our beliefs. That we would begin to show love, the love of Jesus, love that is kind and teaching, not full of condemnation and underlying with hate. That we would share Jesus and truth with those around us, in a loving way. That this great nation would begin to turn their face to seek the One who can save us.

I know, I know, we are in the last days. The Bible tells us what it will be like. Yes, I know this, we are in the last days. That doesn't mean God cannot or will not heal our land now. We only need to turn to Him. Seek Him.

If My people who are called by My name will humble
themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their
wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive
their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

So my friends, it is now that I dare you. Dare you for the next 4 years to intentionally commit to praying daily for our leadership and our country. It's time to stop the hate, stop the negativity and start praying.

Are you in?

Will you accept the dare to pray?
