Christians need to be involved in the governance of society (Genesis 22.17). I have been praying that the Lord would raise up servants who would be willing to represent Him. It’s hard to pray that, and not be willing to go yourself. Some significant Christian friends asked me to run, and in my best effort to follow the Lord, I believe it is His direction for me at this time.
