These verses from the Old Testament stood out for me:
But neither King Zedekiah nor his attendants nor the people who were left in the land listened to what the said through Jeremiah.
King Zedekiah agreed. “All right,” he said. “Do as you like. I can’t stop you.”

Today is election day in Canada. We are voting for our new Prime Minister. The one who will lead our country. We pray that our new leader will listen to what the Lord commands. We pray that our new leader will not be wishy-washy. We pray that our new leader will stand up for what is right even if afraid of what others will think.
Another verse from the New Testament that I thought about with today being election day:
Not just money but fame and power as well cause so much trouble.
