Most gracious heavenly Father, as Americans take to the polls today to vote, I pray that Your Holy Spirit would move across the land, and inspire Americans to vote for Godly leaders. In every election we hear that Christians sit out the vote because they think their vote does not count. I pray that your Holy Spirit would especially convict Your children to get out and vote. Our nation is at a very dangerous crossroad as we see an evil agenda taking root in the public schools with a subversive curriculum that sexualizes children, confuses their sexual identity and promotes a hateful and divisive CRT. Lord, we cry out to you, cleanse the land of those leaders who hate you and seek to eradicate every vestige of truth and righteousness from our public life. Lord God, hear our prayers for our nation and for our children. We pray that godly men and women would be elected this day and begin to move our country back to the path of righteousness and Truth.

Please, Lord, give the governing officials wisdom to govern Your will and not their own. You know what needs to be done to get this state in Your will. Convict hearts to be saved most of all. If they turn their hearts to you, then they will govern well. Do what you need to do to change hearts and lives. I love you, Jesus!

Dear Father, l lift up New Jersey and commit these leaders to you. I pray your will be done. I ask that you would use this state to accomplish your purpose and there would be an awakening of the need of Godly values. I ask that you would wake the church up. I pray for revival to begin

New Jersey State Leader Pushes Legislation on In-Person Voting Multiple state legislators are introducing bills to bring election integrity to their states. New Jersey Assemblyman Gerald Scharfenberger is one of them. Assembly bill 5401 was recently introduced and would require the State to provide the capability to vote in person to all voters in all elections. This bill would not allow the governor to restrict the right to vote in person. During the pandemic New Jersey residents could not vote in the 2020 election on the grounds of limiting the spread of the coronavirus. Scharfenberger will also be introducing a bill that would require the New Jersey government to offer a hotline for reporting election fraud. In 2020 he introduced a bill requiring all registered voters to show a form of I.D. at the polling place. The goal of all these bills is to legitimize elections in the state of New Jersey. Read the text for bill 5401 here. You can send a message to your New Jersey elected officials today to let them know that you support election integrity and ballot security.

Lord, We recognize the failure of human solutions, but at the same time we know something must be done to fix what’s broken in the world. What man can’t do, God has done; He’s given the Messiah.(grace to you website) For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 We agree that NJ can be a state submitted to God and not let Godly members like Chris Smith stand alone. Raise up new leaders of soften the hearts of state members who are pro-choice and don't seek to help the poor but use them. Amen
