Pray for Our Governor...
Mike and I have felt like we need to be praying for all the candidates but especially for the Palin family. I know there is controversy about whether Gov. Sarah should be a candidate etc.
I know I prayed for a candidate that would be a social and fiscal conservative and would fear God. I believe God answered. We've also believed that because she IS a Christian there will be much spiritual warfare. I'm ashamed that I've not been praying for ALL the candidates (though I am now). I feel a special need to be praying for this Christian woman who is trying to follow God's path for her.....for the protection of her family, her marriage, her reputation...... I've told others that I sensed in interviews that Gov. Palin felt a destiny to be involved in politics and that God was leading her to these positions (mayor, governor).....I think that comes across in the following clip.
This link was sent to me. It is a 15 min clip which shows Gov. Palin addressing her home church - Wasilla Assembly of God. She's actually addressing the Master's Commission (which we thought cool because of the girls.) This is fairly recent (she mentions Trig's birth). In hindsight it's amazing to see what appears to be the hand of God moving on this one woman. Whether you agree with the Pentecostal movement or not - it's apparent to me that her faith in Jesus is real...and she's very capable of articulating it in a public forum.
BTW - after hearing how OLD 44 is it has been fun to hear all say how YOUNG it is this past week. ::snort::
