A simple Puritan prayer in a restless time

It appears that Hillary Clinton will face off against Donald Trump for the presidency of the United States.

It seems surreal these two low character candidates are the best this country can come up with. Is this God's judgment upon us?

It's hard to be optimistic about our future, but alas, God is sovereign.

I adapted a Puritan prayer for such a time as this.  It comforts me.

O God, most high, in light of the two candidates vying for the highest office in this nation....most glorious, the thought of Thine infinite serenity cheers me, for I am toiling and moiling, troubled and distressed, but Thou art for ever at perfect peace. Thy designs cause thee no fear or care of unfulfillment, they stand fast as the eternal hills. Thy power knows no bond, Thy goodness no stint. Thou bringest order out of confusion, and our defeats are Thy victories: The Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Amen.
