PRAY: Father God, today I stand before you “in the breach,” asking for your forbearance in America during this election season. In this time, we need your patience. We are ever-grateful that you deal with us, even when we are difficult, without becoming angry. I pray that you would give us, your people in America, your heart of forbearance as we participate in the political process this year.
“They forgot God their Savior, Who had done great things in Egypt, Wondrous works in the land of Ham, Awesome things by the Red Sea. Therefore He said that He would destroy them, Had not Moses His chosen one stood before Him in the breach, To turn away His wrath, lest He destroy them.”
