Psalm 95:1-6 (VOICE)
1Come, let us worship in song, a joyful offering to the Eternal. Shout! Shout with joy to the rock of our liberation. 2Come face-to-face with God, and give thanks; with loud and joyful voices, praise Him in songs.3 For the Eternal is a great God, and a great King, supreme over all gods.4 Within His control are the very depths of the earth; the mountaintops too—they all belong to Him.
5 The sea belongs to Him, for He created it—scooped and filled it—with His hands He made the dry land—every valley and mountain.
6 Come, let us worship Him. Everyone bow down; kneel before the Eternal who made us.
Let me first give honour and praise to you Father God for there is no one higher than you. I pray the Holy Spirit comforts those hearts who ach today. What stirs my heart through this election is that there is so much talk as if everything is set in stone and the path forward is completely concrete to which way the USA will go (depending on whoever was selected). Let me interject before I go any further this is not written in favour of either major candidate, rather pointing out God is truly greater and responds to the cries of his people. That a large part of His body of believers have misplaced for a moment the truth in the word which states, “The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.” Proverbs 21:1.
Regardless of who is in authority we need to pray. We need to passionately embrace the truth of the Holy Spirit living in every believer and the power that prayer has. In the book of Exodus there is a story of an Egyptian Pharaoh who sat on the throne keeping God’s people working to build a mighty kingdom for himself. God brought a messenger to Pharaoh to help the people. Moses was chosen to deliver the people of Israel from their captivity. Moses followed God’s directions and addressed Pharaoh in the plans to let them leave. In Exodus 7:3 it say God will harden Pharaoh’s heart. I truly believe our call to prayer is for the heart of our leaders, executor's, decision makers, planners and all levels of government. If we pour out from our hearts and allow the Holy Spirit to move upon the hearts of others then we are transferring the power to God. Even though Pharaoh’s heart was hard God’s people were still delivered and many signs of miracles were displayed. Not to mention the added bonus that where they did leave there was a transfer of wealth from the Egyptians to their families.
The Word of God commands us to pray for our leaders. 1 Timothy 2:1-3*. I ask we take to praying for their hearts. Let us rest in the Peace that comes from our own experiences that any moment can change when our hearts are moved by the Lord to respond to what He is asking. A man/woman's heart can change in a moment and alter their choices going forward. Please join with me in prayer for the hearts of those we need to reach for one Nation under God. Father God is listening to the cries of his children Exodus 6:5*. Remember we don’t pray for God to give us what we want, you can read up on His response to those type of cries as the promised children of God wandered in the desert where they didn’t receive their planned answer. Psalm 95:7-11*. He knows what we have need. Let us trust God’s intentions for our needs and put into action great love. There are a lot of people talking about loving and peacefulness towards others, let us do this in our time with God and intercede for the hearts of others. Pray for the Holy Spirit to move and direct hearts to bring deliverance to a nation full of great people.
1 Timothy 2:1-3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV) God Wants Us to Pray for Everyone
2 First of all, I ask that you pray for all people. Ask God to bless them and give them what they need. And give thanks. 2 You should pray for rulers and for all who have authority. Pray for these leaders so that we can live quiet and peaceful lives—lives full of devotion to God and respect for him. 3 This is good and pleases God our Saviour.

5 In addition, I have heard the constant cries of the Israelites who have been enslaved by the Egyptians. I have remembered My covenant;
Ephesians 4:18-22 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
18 Their minds are in the dark, and they are stubborn and ignorant and have missed out on the life that comes from God. They no longer have any feelings about what is right, 19 and they are so greedy that they do all kinds of indecent things. 20-21 But that isn’t what you were taught about Jesus Christ. He is the truth, and you heard about him and learned about him
Ephesians 4:22 & 23 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
22 You were taught to leave your old self. This means that you must stop living the evil way you lived before. That old self gets worse and worse, because people are fooled by the evil they want to do. 23 You must be made new in your hearts and in your thinking.
God was and is interested in delivering a people whose hearts turn & cry out to Him. God Bless and your loved ones.
