"So David knew that the Lord had established him as king over Israel because his kingdom was highly exalted for the sake of His people Israel" (1 Chr. 14:2).
God has established Mr. Trump as the 45th president of the United States for the sake of the American people. God has kept the first part of His promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14: "If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin and will heal their land."
The only possible answer for Mr. Trump's dramatic victory is that God has indeed heard from heaven. Just as certainly as He has answered our prayers for the national election, He will forgive the sin that we have confessed to Him, because He said He would. Now it's time to claim His promise for the healing of our land.
Please join me in thanking God for hearing and answering our prayers.
Join me in giving God the glory for this remarkable, dramatic turn of events.
But don't slack off in prayer. Double-down.
Pray for the healing and rebuilding of America.
Pray for Mr. Trump, that he would turn to God.
Pray that God would give the president-elect wisdom for decisions, courage to do the right thing, protection from danger, strength to govern after a grueling race, grace under the continued fire of opposition, and blessing upon blessing as he seeks to lead our nation forward and up.
Pray that God would surround Mr. Trump with godly men and women who will offer encouragement, support and wise counsel.
Pray that as God's blessings flow, healing would begin.
Now is the time to recommit ourselves to focusing, not on a particular man or political party, but on the living God of our fathers who is our hope and who alone can bring the healing America desperately needs.
Now is the time to pray! And keep praying.
