The Election in Biblical Perspective

Found this as a forum post at the School of Biblical Evangelism. I think it puts the November 4th election in proper perspective:

"Whatever happens Americans should pray for their leaders. Paul wrote to Timothy saying, "I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness" [emphasis mine]. So also we should pray for our leaders, appointed by God, and given power to govern, so that we might live peacefully.

I read this morning this list of 10 Predictions No Matter Who Wins the Election:
1. The Bible will still have all the answers
2. Prayer will still work
3. The Holy Spirit will still move
4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching
6. There will still be singing of praise to God
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people
8. There will still be room at the Cross
9. Jesus will still love you
10. Jesus will still save the lost when they come to Him"

I did a google and found what may be the original post.
