Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.  (Pr 14:34 NIV)

With the 2018 midterms three weeks away, some on the left are hoping for a “blue wave” to regain control of Congress while others are hoping that conservatives will turn up to ensure that both chambers of Congress stay under Republican control with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office.

While some are optimistic about Democrats’ chances to retake control of the House, the route to retaking the Senate seems less likely with at least 10 Democrats defending seats in states Trump won in 2016.

“The challenge is undeniable … it’s an uneven playing field,” Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez recently told The Washington Post….

With 35 Senate races up for grabs, there is no telling what could happen on Nov. 6 and who will be most energized to vote in a political climate where most voters don’t vote in the midterms….


One of the more high profile Senate races of 2018 is incumbent Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill versus Republican Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley.

The race also includes Libertarian, Green Party and Independent candidates that could act like wildcards in this race.

Hawley is a former clerk for Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and previously worked for the religious freedom law firm Becket, where he wrote briefs in cases such as Hobby Lobby and Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission….


Republican Sen. Dean Heller appears to be the one Republican senator in most danger of losing his seat in 2018.

In 2016, Clinton won Nevada with 47.9 percent of the vote to Trump’s 45.5 percent. A Real Clear Politics average of polls shows that Heller has a slim 46 percent to 44.3 percent advantage over Democrat challenger Jacky Rosen, who has represented Nevada’s third congressional district on Capitol Hill since 2017 and has the backing of former President Barack Obama….


A Real Clear Politics average of polls shows Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson in a neck-and-neck race with two-term Florida Gov. Rick Scott. Both are averaging 46.3 percent in the polls.

Trump won Florida in 2016 with a 49 percent plurality over Clinton, who had 47.8 percent of the vote.

Nelson, who has been in office since 2001, is the only Democrat in a statewide elected office in Florida.

While Nelson is endorsed by Planned Parenthood, Scott is pro-life and signed a bill into law this year to give state funding to pro-life pregnancy centers.

North Dakota

Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, who has served since 2013, will have the challenge of trying to win re-election in a state that Trump won with 63 percent of the votes to Clinton’s 27.2 percent.

Real Clear Politics has the race categorized as “leans GOP” as its average of polling data shows challenger Kevin Cramer with a 57 percent to 42 percent advantage.

Cramer holds North Dakota’s only seat in the House of Representatives and is endorsed by the national pro-life advocacy group Susan B. Anthony List and the social conservative Family Policy Alliance….


The 2018 midterms represent an opportunity for Arizona Republicans to elect a pro-Trump senator to replace Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who is not seeking re-election and has had his fair share of issues with Trump in the past.

However, the contest is currently ruled as a toss-up by Real Clear Politics as Republican Rep. Martha McSally holds a slim 45.3 percent to 45 percent lead over Democrat Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, according to Real Clear Politics average of polls….

Sinema is endorsed by groups like Planned Parenthood and the LGBT activist group the Human Rights Campaign, while McSally is backed by Trump, who won the state with over 49 percent of the vote in 2016.


The Planned Parenthood-backed Democrat Sen. Jon Tester, who has served since 2007, is in a toss-up race against Republican challenger Matt Rosendale, who is the state auditor.

This week, Trump visited Montana to support Rosendale.

Trump’s visit on Thursday tied Harry S. Truman for the most number of visits to Montana by a sitting U.S. president, according to According to The Flathead Beacon.

In a speech Thursday, Trump said he was campaigning against Tester for helping tarnish his nomination of former White House doctor Adm. Ronny Jackson for Veterans Affairs secretary…. (Excerpts from Samuel Smith article in the Christian Post)

My Lord, please allow those who live with you in their hearts and in their decision making be victorious. Let the masses come in droves to show the world that the righteous who believe in God overpower those that want to tear us apart. I pray for victory on Tuesday night.

Please pray for Texas! Huge battle going on. Beto O’Rourke has won the hearts of many of the recently moved here liberals. The race is close with Ted Cruz the Republican incumbent. Mainly in the liberal cities such as Austin, but even in my small town we are seeing Beto signs.

Lord God, i love hearing of Thommy getting to the polls in the last minute to help give us Bush instead of Gore. Lord, we ask a miracle like this again, for the political machine was well lobed by the Clintons. Lord, you are sovereign, we wait on you as we do our duty to keep the deep state out of power. Lord, they know total exposure is sure to happen if they do not win the house, so Lord, we ask you, the God of Justice to give to us justice again for our elderly down to the unborn. We ask you to cover with protection that is divine all those running in these races that are men and women of integrity. As you countered the onslaught of vice toward Kavanagh, so too stand by these. I pray this in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen

We are thankful to The Almighty for choosing God fearing people who are willing to step up to the plate and run for the senate and serve this nation. Job 42:1-2 says, “Then Job answered the Lord and said, I know that You can do all things. No plan of Yours can be thwarted.”
I declare God’s plan over Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Josh Hawley, Rep. Kevin Cramer, State AuditorMatt Rosendale, Rep.Martha McSally and Senator Dean Hellen.

I pray a special blessing on Florida, and Rick Scott, dear Lord. You know what evil and unprincipled men and/or women have done to Florida, we ask that their treachery would not be rewarded, but that Gov Scott would get the Rep Senate seat, and that Desantes would win the Gov seat. We ask a mighty work of your hand, Lord in all these Senate races, in Jesus name, Amen

I’m a Christian drama and music artist who has been living in South Africa for over 10 years now. Thanks for informing the body of Christ, as to what is going on and who to pray for. I’m now in my second prayer and fasting time during this election cycle. I know that God hears His people when we cry out to him. I also know that every vote counts, as I barely made it to the polls to vote back in 2000. It was 10 minutes to 7pm when I walked in to cast my vote. Bush won Florida by only 500 votes statewide. It was the last minute votes that put him over the top. I encourage everyone to vote RED this election. America’s survival is at stake! How can Africa or the world survive….if America is given over to socialists, and the like of George Soros?

Father God, I exalt Your Word in all the earth! I declare that no weapon formed against Your plans for President Trump, his family and this nation shall prosper. This earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof & they that dwell therein. Your Kingdom come, Your will b done on earth as it is n heaven. Your will is to finish what You started & Your Kingdom is ours to return to You! We align ourselves w/Your ways! In Jesus’ name!

Jeremiah 18:7-10 is both encouraging and concerning, yet that is what prayer mobilization is all about! It goes very well with II Chronicles 16:9 so Yes! There is Great Hope in God if we put “feet” to that hope and pray and vote!
Psalm 127:1-2 “Lord God, please build our homes and our cities (government structure) for Your Glory, Honor and Praise, in Jesus name, Amen!

Praying for leaders that will stand firm on Biblical principles. Those who will allow Sovereign God to impart His wisdom, discernment and knowledge to them and stand in the face of opposition.
I voted yesterday in Florida. Father God, I praise You knowing that You can take leaders down and set leaders in. I trust You only Lord.
