After a year-long campaign and a tense election week, preliminary results say former vice president Joe Biden is President-elect of the United States. If election results stand, Senator Kamala Harris will be the first female, first black, and first South Asian vice president in U.S. history.
If legal challenges don’t change the result, President Donald Trump would be the first incumbent to lose reelection in the U.S. since George H.W. Bush lost the 1992 election to Bill Clinton. The tide changed when three states that Trump won in 2016 flipped: Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Many U.S. citizens cast mail-in ballots due to COVID-19 concerns, and the votes took days to count, with the final announcement coming Saturday morning. Some states remain uncalled at the time of writing, including Georgia, North Carolina, and Alaska.
Praying for the country
On election night, Sammy Tippit Ministries participated in a 3-hour online gathering for Christians praying over the political process in the U.S. and for revival in the country.
Sammy Tippit says nearly 20,000 people participated in the event, which was put on by OneCry, a ministry based in Michigan. “We prayed for the election and for the people who were voting, but we did not pray politically, or along political lines. We prayed for God to just give people wisdom, keep them safe, those types of things.”
