Rejoice in Hope: The presidential election coming in just 60 days is a cause for me to rejoice in hope. It's not going to be an easy 60 days by any means. The attacks from the Trump administration will undoubtedly grow, as will the attacks on our democratic norms. The legitimacy of the election will continue to be called into question. But I'm genuinely glad that the American people will have the opportunity to head to the ballot box and set the direction of our nation. Our democracy reflects the inherent dignity of every person, and it is worth defending.
Be Patient in Suffering: Many Americans are scared about what will happen if the Trump campaign declares victory prematurely or doesn't accept the election results. We must be patient to count every vote. Election day and the days following have the potential to be incredibly trying for our nation. My hope for each of us is that we are patient and remain committed to our democratic processes.
Persevere in Prayer: In these final days leading up to the election, our team of writers and editors at The Resistance Prays will remain committed to bringing you truthful information. We will root our sacred resistance in prayer and Scripture as we have throughout the Trump Administration. I hope this resource will ground your activism and help our community avoid despair.
