Congratulations, and lead well for our country!

I am not sure if you are happy or sad with who is now leading our country. The main thing is that you researched as much as you could and have made an educated decision on who to vote for and then voted on it. It is always an interesting time when elections come up. People have their strong views one way or the other. Most people fit into the Centre-left or Centre-right category. I am constantly asked, "Who should I vote for? I don't know who to vote for."I always say, read up about the people in your area and pray about it. Who will serve your community the best? Who stands for the same things that you do? Well that's all done now for another 3 years.    

Now that the elections are over, what do we do now?"The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Saviour God wants us to live". 1Timothy 2:1-3. Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Romans 13:1.

So, PRAY for our leaders.
