Last night there was a debate.
I was at rehearsal so all I was able to see was my twitter feed and not the debate.
As I was scrolling the feed I was laughing at all my witty friends and their banter.
So I went home and watched the debate.
I thought my guy won.
I was proud.
I had plenty of thoughts.
I learned a bit more about the other guy.
But then I had to go to the bathroom.
So I paused it.
I came back to the sofa and sat down and this was the screen that it was paused on…
It was almost haunting as I stared at the screen.
These 2 men have souls.
They are created by God almighty.
They are loved deeply by a God who does not degrade either of them.
They are 2 men who have wives and kids who cry at night seeing the stress and weight they are under.
They are 2 men who at the end of the next 20 days will still be 2 men who God loves deeper than we can even fathom.
For 15 seconds I stared at a screen where I was looking at the humanity in them.
And I had a thought.
We did it before. We can do it again. We are going to Pray… Backwards…
What do I mean by that?
This Monday night… at 8:30 Central time… Here at ragamuffinsoul.com, we are going to pray for these men, live, online, on video, streaming for the world to see that Christians who disagree on policies can agree on love.
We are going to turn off the news, open our Bibles, and pray for our leaders.
WE WILL PRAY NONPARTISAN
1. Pray that our leaders would grown in Faith. In their relationships with Jesus Christ.
2. Pray for their marriages.
3. Pray for their children.
4. Pray for those around them.
5. Pray for their emotional and physical health.
6. Those on the left will pray blessing on Romney, those on the right will pray blessings on Obama.
7. Those on the left will pray blessing on Romney, those on the right will pray blessings on Obama.
8. Those on the left will pray blessing on Romney, those on the right will pray blessings on Obama.
So. Here. Monday the 22nd. 8:30 pm CENTRAL time.
I bet we could get a few hundred. Or not. We did when we prayed for ourselves.
It would be glorious if we could gather to pray for our leaders.
I’m not sure of any churches around town doing this, so let’s do it here.
See those little banners up top?
Let’s spread those puppies around this here interweb until people are sick of them.
Then Tuesday you can take them down.
Save those badboys and paste away on your sidebars, facebooks, blogs, ect.
Here is a link to update your twitter and facebook profile pics…
Let’s show the world that we are more than a bunch of politic loving, Jesus tolerating people.
Let’s actually hang out with Jesus as we pray for our leaders.
