Why not pray for the people on both or all sides, no matter your view or stance? We want what's best for em all.

Powerful prayer for a person or nation isn't merely found in using just the perfect or religious words, but it's in approachin' God as ya currently are, it's in gettin' real with your best Friend who knows all about it in the first place, and it's in a heart earnestly seekin' after the Lord ..on His terms instead of on your own.
