Matthew 11:29 (NKJV)
“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
PRAY: Father, as I participate and vote in this election season, I pray that you would make me Christ-like in gentleness. May my heart, my thoughts, my words and my actions be gentle in spirit and bring others into your rest. I pray that, in the midst of what can be a harsh and vitriolic political process, your people in America would be known by our gentleness.
