PRAYER ON ELECTION DAY

God bless our native land!
Firm may she ever stand
Through storm and night!
When the wild tempests rave,
Ruler of wind and wave,
Do Thou our country save
By Thy great might.

For her our prayer shall rise
To God above the skies;
On Him we wait.
Thou who art ever nigh,
Guarding with watchful eye,
To Thee aloud we cry,
God save the State!

from ELH - 602

I hope you all have voted, or are on the way out the door to do so. We all have our individual preferences, but when it is all done and over, and a new president and vice president have been declared, then it is our duty to obey the government unless we are asked to do something contrary to God's Word. Pray for our new president, vice president, and all others in authority, whether they are "our" candidate or not.

God Bless America!
