One True Living God, we thank You for the City of Houston. Thank You for Your grace, favor and mercy that You have shown this great city over the years. Thank You for allowing us, as voters, the opportunity to vote for the men and women who will represent us. The earth is Yours Lord, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to You. Father, You laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. Your eternal Word stands firm in heaven. Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth You created.
Magnificent Father, as the people of God, we come before You now, crying out for wisdom and discernment for all City of Houston voters. As the people of God, we declare that we will not be moved or motivated by race, nationality, gender, political alliance, or the media concerning this election. But, as voters, we will seek Your will and trust that You will show us which path to take. We decree that wisdom will save us from evil people and from those whose words are twisted. We command Your Word, which we speak with boldness and faith, to interrupt the airwaves and destroy every word that is spoken by the media that does not align with Your will for the City of Houston election. We decree that every attempt to misconstrue the Truth will be confused, in Jesus’ Name. We declare that the democratic process will be implemented fairly and justly during the election. We cancel every assignment of the enemy to cause division or separation among our citizens during the election. We command the weather to be a perfect balance of sunshine and moderate temperatures on the day of the election.
Holy Spirit, please show me which candidate and Proposition You would have me to vote for:
Gracious Father, only You know the true heart of man. Just as You clearly identified Saul and later David as kings of Israel, please clearly identify who You want to fill the Mayoral, City Council and City Controller positions. Encourage us, as voters, to fully educate ourselves on each candidate and the Propositions that are on the ballot. Please reveal any potential polling hindrances that would prevent voters from being able to cast their vote. Touch the hearts of all registered City of Houston voters to go to the polls to vote.
Merciful Father, forgive us, as voters, for not always seeking Your will before casting our votes. Forgive each candidate for any acts of unrighteousness including favoritism, racism, sexism, lying, deceit and manipulation. Forgive the media for partiality and bias. Forgive those in positions of power who may attempt to skew voting results through voter intimidation, unnecessary redistricting, lies or confusion. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us, as voters, of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, as voters, help us to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.
Triumphant Lord, You are King! You are robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. Your throne has stood from time immemorial. You are from the everlasting past. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
