Depending on who one asks, the winner of the 2020 presidential race remains uncertain – but regardless of the outcome, it's certain there will be an early morning celebration three days after Inauguration Day 2021.
It will be the eighth Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast, taking place on Saturday, January 23, 2021, in Washington, DC. The hostess of the breakfast, Rev. Merrie Turner, reminds America that even though many Americans are waiting for the final outcome to see who their leader will be for the next four years, God is still in control.
"The LORD is shouldering the nation, and the government is upon His shoulder, according to Isaiah 9:6," Turner states in her faith group's press release. "It's always an honor to pray for the 'Office of the Presidency' and for mercy, healing and revival of the nation."
With the COVID-19 pandemic reportedly being one of the major issues of this election, Turner expresses gratitude that President Donald Trump, his family, and staff have all successfully dealt with bouts of the coronavirus.
Let your vote honor God …
The organization is hopeful that every Christian was mindful to seek God's will and wisdom when voting for their presidential candidate of choice.
"America needs candidates who will navigate the nation forward on a true course of preservation, which was clearly intended by the Pilgrims who settled at Plymouth and established the Mayflower Compact on November 11, 1620," the DC-based Christian group asserts.
The release urges Americans to set their eyes on the path to life and blessing as they seek to honor and obey God and His Word, and cited Deuteronomy 30:19: "God has set life and prosperity, and death and destruction before the nation; therefore, now is our time to choose life."
It was also announced that after the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast, an evening inaugural prayer crusade is now slated to seek God's blessing for the goodwill of the nation, in the spirit of an Old Testament verse from the Book of Psalms: "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord" (Psalm 33:12).
