When it comes to voting for a candidate, many looks at the political party to make a decision, but what about looking at the values of the candidate? We believe that is the most important thing to do, to research the values of each candidate and decide based on that person’s values. At the Values Voters Summit 2018 many great men and women spoke of the importance of voting in the coming mid-term elections.
Former U.S. Congresswoman, Michele Bachmann spoke at the Values Voters Summit and encourages believers to fast and pray for the coming mid-term elections. “Our involvement in this world is paying off…we are actively fulfilling the responsibility as believers…I see those of us who are believers, especially if you go back to the 2016 elections, remember in the months leading up…where we all felt that this was the last exit ramp for this country. And we knew that we had a responsibility before the Lord as believers to do our part for our nation.” Michele talks about our nation, America, and how different it is from other nations and is built on Biblical truths. Other nations long to be like America.
“Probably one of the greatest threats that we are dealing with today is the loss to religious liberty and the loss of free speech. Look at the internet for instance,” she talks about social media and internet sites. “The big story of this election is really two-fold, on one hand you have massive amounts of false information going through the mainstream media outlets, day after day after day. We know it’s probably false information. On the other hand, we know that the social media sites have so restricted freedom of speech and expression that there was even a poll done recently that said that traffic to conservative sites is down 93%. Not by choice but because of the masters of the universe, the tech titans, the Facebook, the Instagram, the Twitters, the social media, the YouTube, have decided our voice is not a legitimate voice.” Michele shares what Eric Schmidt, former CEO of Google, said that within 10 years there will be two internets, one will be controlled by China. She speaks of China being an electronic tyrant, dictating people’s lives. “It is being aided and abetted by American companies, which I question if they are even American companies anymore.”
“Two years ago, I believe that the prayers that God’s people made to ask God for his provision were heard, they were heard and granted and for two years, we have lived in an unparalleled golden time in the United States. We are living in an unparalleled golden time. We have a president who has made the most pro-life actions of any president ever. We have a president who has been the most pro-Israel president ever in the history of the United States of America. Our president has put the United States on a pathway of blessing. We have the most pro-religious liberty president in the history of the United States, ever…do you see what a golden day that we have been given on every possible level, America is killing it. We are doing great in every possible metric, and I believe that’s because God’s people utilized the tool that he gave us. Because if we humble ourselves, if we confess our sins, if we reach out and cry out to Him…it is ultimately a full dependence on an Almighty God…He responds.”
She challenges all believers with an action step for the weeks up to the mid-term elections. “Prayer, it is the power of prayer. No speed has ever matched the power of prayer from our lips to God’s ears. And God’s thoughts to our mind. Nothing can interfere with that.” Michele shares a scripture, “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16b “When you couple prayer with a Biblical power called fasting, meaning you deny yourself something. Maybe its food maybe its whatever…when we do that somehow our minds are more in tune with God.” She shares how she just completed 40 days of prayer and fasting and that there is nothing more privileged than being closer to God through that time. She implores us to get with a friend and join together in intentional fasting and prayer to change our nation.
