Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.  I Tim. 2:1-2

The importance of praying for our nation, our leaders, and our elections is paramount — and a specific Biblical command. It is imperative that we have laws that reflect God's principles in order to live on earth in peace with one another, and that only happens through leaders who know and follow Godly principle. As we approach another crucial election, to many a crossroads in our nation's history, asking God's direction seems most essential.

David Andersen, the Virginia state director for Capitol Ministries, is inviting everyone, especially pastors, who would like to pray on the eve of election night, Monday, November 3, 2008 at the State Capitol:

We hope that you can plan to attend this special event. (The event is free, but you must register by calling 804-796-9411.) The idea is to reach our leaders one heart at a time. We want to take this opportunity to support Capitol Ministries, pray for the upcoming elections and give you a chance to learn more about the impact Capitol Ministries has had on many serving in the Virginia General Assembly.
