After the Election: What’s Next?

What's NextThe following is a selection of comments shared by Christian leaders and organizations across the country regarding the results of the Presidential Election:

“Now that our nation has elected our President, we need to remember to lift our nation and this man up in prayer. We are reminded in Psalm 47:8: ‘God reigns over the nations, God sits on His holy throne.’”

John Ankerberg, The John Ankerberg Show (via Facebook)

“Let's encourage one another today to remember that God remains our Sovereign King and He will always be on the throne. ‘Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.’ Daniel 2: 20-21”

“It is our responsibility now to pray for our President. Let the church be the repairer of the breach that divides our nation…. The church must wake up and step up to the challenges before us. Our nation faces problems that require a spiritual solution.”

Jack Graham, PowerPoint Ministries (via Twitter)

“The election is over. The people have spoken. Barack Obama has been re-elected as President of the United States. As I promised in my post yesterday, I will pray for President Obama. He is the leader of this nation, and thus he is my leader.”

Thom Rainer, LifeWay Christian Resources (via thomrainer.com)

“Whatever happens with the election, if you’re an artist, filmmaker, pastor, writer, teacher, business person, leader – whatever, keep moving forward. Create. Spark visions. Inspire people. Speak the truth. The influence of culture is far more significant and life-changing than whoever sits in the White House.”

Phil Cooke, Cooke Pictures (via philcooke.com)

“As I record this, I don’t know the outcome of yesterday’s voting. But I’m sure of one thing, whether the President’s last name is Romney or Obama, he will need our prayers, because he and his administration face huge, serious challenges to the health of our nation and to peace in the world—challenges that we cannot overcome without divine aid ….

“So by all means pray for the President and his administration. Pray for our nation. But most of all be salt and light in a culture, in a country, that is in danger of forgetting God.”

Eric Metaxas, BreakPoint (via breakpoint.org)

"This election didn’t change the reality that millions of lives still depend upon our efforts. God is now asking us to continue being faithful to our call in protecting those He dearly loves—His unborn lambs, the elderly and those who are vulnerable or infirm. What will your answer be?"

Brad Mattes, Life Issues Institute (via Facebook)

“That President Obama has won re-election comes as a source of great disappointment to many because of his campaign to support abortion and same sex marriage. These are policies which many know are contrary to scripture and weaken the family.

“A fair-minded person will also acknowledge and admit that any time their candidate loses the news can come as a blow. But there is also divine opportunity seeded in the reality of setback.

“I believe the coming days, weeks and months could very well be one of the modern-day Church's finest hours. This is no time to name call; there is no place for pettiness as we begin to count the consequences of the 2012 campaign.

“Instead, this is a time to rise and reprioritize. It is time to reach out to every person in every corner of this country and in doing so, strive to reflect Christ's heart to a very hurting world by our words and actions.”
