It is election day in Singapore today, 7 May 2011.
May the best candidate in the constituency win.
Thank You Lord that by the end of today, Your approved candidates will win to run the next government for the next five years.
May those who lose and still are your chosen ones for the future, not be disheartened to strive to win in the next election. Help them prepare and do Your will in each of their lives. May those who are Your children be drawn closer to you in the hour of defeat.
May those who have won, not have big heads that cause pride and retaliation to set in. May they remain humble to serve the people. Give them hearts of compassion and help them remain faithful to their responsibilities. Give courage to do what is best for the people, and help when difficult decisions are needed. Lord keep those in authority honest and humble and hardworking to fulfil their responsiblities which their high salary demands. Give co-operation, patience, integrity and confidence for decision-making and courage to stay the right course even when things get rough and tough. Help them speak up on behalf of the people and bless doubly. each one who has his/her hand in Yours. Thank You Lord you are in control through the government in Singapore. In Jesus name, amen.
