Praying for the Election

In General Information, Prayer on November 1, 2008 at 11:22 pm

I’m glad to know that my family, friends and I are not the only ones!

They’re fasting on the steps of the Florida Capitol, hoping God will hear their pleas to put an abortion opponent in the White House.

Prayer warriors will staff the get-out-the-vote command center Tuesday at Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Fort Washington, Md. A rabbi is distributing a prayer to be said in the voting booth…

…The faithful are busy as Nov. 4 nears.

Keep up the excellent work, and remember to thank God for our wonderful progress! Polls indicate that Catholics, who once supported Barack Obama by a wide margin, are now split 50/50. Clearly many have gotten the message. If nothing else, we will have saved a great many souls from grave danger on election day. This is surely a difficult time for faithful of many religions. We have been ridiculed and mocked for our beliefs, and it feels like our voices and our votes do not matter. But we have also sought more knowledge about what our religions teach us, we have solidified our moral beliefs, and we have learned to find our voice. We may feel as though we are on the brink, but much good has come out of this test already.

Keep it up! We are making progress!

According to this article, the most accurate pollster from the 2004 elections shows McCain surging ahead. The best news? He has almost completely reversed his standing among Catholic voters! Clearly the message is getting out, our prayers are working, and our fellow Catholics are seeing the light.

McCain has cut into Obama’s lead for a second day and is now just 1.1 points behind. The spread was 3.7 Wednesday and 6.0 Tuesday. The Republican is making headway with middle- and working- class voters, and has surged 10 points in two days among those earning between $30,000 and $75,000. He has also gone from an 11-point deļ¬cit to a 9-point lead among Catholics.

We must continue to pray right up until the polls close, regardless of positive or negative news. Remember God’s words: “I would not destroy it for the sake of ten.” Keep faith that God will help us uphold the real progress we have made for the sake of life over the past eight years. Don’t be discouraged, but instead strive to be one of those ten.

The Power of Prayer

On this site I specifically encourage people to ask St. Therese to intercede on our behalf. I have many personal reasons for doing so, but the most important reason is that I truly believe she has intervened in a previous election, if not to ensure that a specific candidate won, then at least to assure me that I need not worry. Prior to now I have only shared my story with one other person, out of fear that some might see me as a “wack job”, and others might criticize my support for the candidate who won (however I am willing and able to defend myself on both counts!).
