Today marks the first day of the 40/40 Prayer Vigil launched by the Southern Baptists. The SB’s are inviting people to pray for the next 40 days leading up to the election and for the 40-hours prior to election day–October 31 at 4 PM to November 2 at 8 AM. The purpose of this vigil is to inspire a revival in the hearts of Christians to remember where their help comes from. Richard Land, head of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission had this to say about their efforts:

“Our problems are God-sized problems. They are problems of the heart. They are problems of the spirit. They are problems of the soul. And they are well beyond our ability to solve them. The only way they are going to be solved is if we have revival.”

–Christian Post

I’ve never professed to understand everything about our political process, but I do have a relatively good understanding of the power of prayer. I fully believe that our stability as a nation lies not in the hands of Obama/Biden or McCain/Palin, but in our trusting solely on God. I have said this before, and I will say again, “If the majority of us survived eight years of a Republican administration, and came out pretty unscathed, why wouldn’t we survive another Republican administration?” It’s not to say it will happen again, but I am hedging my bets on God’s a whole lot more than I am hoping some politicians will save me. In the words of Jason Upton, “Republican or Democrat, both sides are fallen.”
