    I hope these courts blast these fraud ballots right in the trash where they belong.
    That is my prayer, wipe them out.

    Wait until Monday or Tuesday and see if what they say is true.
    Meanwhile, even though having some doubt about the way things are right now, I will continue to pray for a "miracle."

    Question: Do you pray that elections will turn out as God wills or as you will? I don’t pray that elections turn out the way I want them to, but as God wills. You?

    It would be a "miracle" if what I wanted was what God wanted and willed.

    As far as the lawsuits, my hope is that if massive fraud occurred, it is discovered and corrected.

    But I haven't ruled out the possibility that God wants to punish the nation with crooked rulers.

    Question - Are you saying if the candidate you vote for wins then that is a blessing from God and if your candidate loses then that is a punishment from God?

    You can pray both of those together.
    You can pray, but you do not know if God will hear that prayer as if in accordance with his will.
    However Luke 18 Jesus says it like this

    1 Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, 2 saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. 3 Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ 4 And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, 5 yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’ ”

    6 Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. 7 And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? 8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily.

    1 John 4
    14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
    15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

    James 5:17
    Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.
    James 5:18
    And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.

    Philippians 4
    6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
    7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

    Wait a sec. Did he say that Clark County tossed 160,000 votes due to fraud related to a local race, yet those same ballots are still being counted as valid in the presidential race? [1:19]

    I was trying to phrase it as non-partisan, and focused more on possible fraud and less on candidates.

    Begging the question, as God is a proponent and even source of truth, in what manner could a fraudulent election be used to His glory.

    God's uses lots of bad humans and human activities to His glory. Otherwise, He would not use humans at all as we are all corrupted.

    Romans 9:17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” (ESV)

    To cause those with regard for the truth to rise up and fight to expose the vast corruption and fraud we have been living under and to stand with our leader to oppose those working to undermine our great and free country and to put us on a better path.

    Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery. Joseph told his brothers that they meant it for evil, but God meant it for good.

    As a teacher I once had was fond of saying, “God can hit straight with a crooked stick.”

    It’s all God’s will; whatever happens will further His will in the world.

    peace to you
