"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;" 1 Timothy 2:1-3
I've probably used this scripture before but it bears repeating in light of the coming election. Why do we want good rulers and what is their main responsibility? It is simply that we lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness, or that we have peace in our streets and are protected from our enemies. That is the main responsibility of government and anything beyond that is extra. Will our country go into anarchy or will we have peace in our streets and throughout our land? Will we be protected for the ever-looming terrorists or will they run freely throughout our country doing their will. Prayer will decide this more than you think. Pray! Pray! Pray!
