Since the founding of our nation, voting has been considered one of the core responsibilities of citizenship. In 1781, Samuel Adams - the "Father of the American Revolution" and signer of the Declaration of Independence - said this about voting:
Patriot's Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for the opportunity and freedom to vote What an honor! I pray that You would guide and direct my every decision as I stand in the voting booth. Help me to cast my vote for the person who stands for liberty, freedom, and respect for human life.
"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual - or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his Country."
Patriot's Promise: "The preparations of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits." ~ Proverbs 16:1-2
