Lord, we pray that Your presence would be all over this next debate and that You would cover the candidates against any spiritual attacks. May the truth win out.
After the Commission on Presidential Debates decided to change the already agreed upon rules and turn debate #2 into a virtual debate, not surprisingly, President Trump refused the changed format. While the Commission claimed it was due to President Trump’s recent bout with COVID, the president would have been quarantined the required ten days from testing by the time the debate was scheduled on October 15. My question is, if the masks work as they claim, and if social distancing works, as they claim, what was the issue with an in-person debate? Or perhaps, if we are honest, was it actually the bigger issue of a need to protect the opposing candidate who struggles in such a setting?
