Pray for the exposure of corrupt behavior, regardless of party affiliation. God sees what is done in secret. Pray that those who pull strings to unfairly manipulate an outcome will be brought to justice. Pray that poll workers as well as city and county officials will lead with integrity to stop all attempts at cheating.
Pray that this deceptive spell is broken. Bind the power of misinformation and indoctrination. Pray that people will think for themselves rather than being pressured to conform to groupthink—not only as it comes from television and newspapers but also from big tech companies that have demonstrated blatant willingness to censor information that doesn’t match their preferred narrative. (That includes Twitter, Facebook and Google.)
Ask for God’s divine intervention. Pray that voters will accept the results of the election with dignity and that God will help us love each other across this bitter political divide. And most of all, bind the forces of anarchy and violence, whether they come from the left or the right.
King David prayed: “Let there be no outcry in our streets!” (Ps. 144:14b). My prayer is similar: “Lord, have mercy on Nigeria. Protect our cities from looting, shootings and mayhem. We cancel the power of the assassin’s bullets and the anarchist’s bricks. Deliver us from evil and establish Your righteousness and justice in our nation. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
