I snagged this from my friend, Shannon’s, blog.
So – Did Your Guy Win?
As of the writing of this note, the new president hasn’t been chosen yet but by the time you all read this the choice will be made. Did your guy win?
If he did, what do you do now? Pop the champagne and taunt the opposition? Throw a party? No – you pray for him and his administration.
If the other guy won what do you do now? Shake your fist at the news, throw the remote at the TV and swear never to vote again? No – you pray for him and his administration.
The Bible tells us that leaders are set up by God, it also tells us that we, as followers of Jesus, are to pray for those in leadership.
Today as we go about our day may we all stop and thank God for our country and then may we all pray for the safety and wisdom of the incoming president.

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and
thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we
may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
