A Prayer on Election Day

Al Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kentucky, offers a prayer for election day.

Here's one section:

We must pray that Americans will be prepared to accept the results of the election with respect and kindness. This will be no time for rancor, condemnations, and conspiracy theories. Instead, we must pray that God will settle the hearts of the people. May Christians be ready to respond with prayer, respect for office, and a gentle spirit. Others will be watching.
