Municipal elections take place today in Mississippi.
1 Samuel 2:22 (ESV)
Now Eli was very old, and he kept hearing all that his sons were doing to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who were serving at the entrance to the tent of meeting.
Our Father in heaven,
We pray that in today’s municipal elections, the voters will base their decisions based on godly principles of justice and truth. Guard our cities from leaders who believe it is their right to hold an office by reason of their birth, class, or race, rather than their integrity and their commitment to the common good.
We cry out, No unmerited favor, Lord! No unmerited favor! Amen.
