In a couple of hours our country will have the transfer of power in our presidency. Wanted to point you to two things as you think about this day. First is a blog post I wrote on the day before the election about our responsibility as believers in Jesus no matter who won. As I mentioned, I wrote this before knowing who would win the election intentionally without knowing the outcome, and the Biblical mandates for us as believers remains unchanged. So let me encourage your read today as we seek to be Kingdom people in this political world.
Second, this is a prayer for the new President and Vice President posted by pastor and Christian leader David Platt. This was encouraging for me today and I used it in my time of prayer this morning. Hoping you find it encouraging as well as a good model to pray for our leaders today.
