National Day of Prayer

Pray for our Nation!
Today is National Day of Prayer when people all over the country will be united, praying for our country—praying that it will turn back to God. They will pray for our President, our Vice-President, Congress, and the Supreme Court. Prayers for our governors, senators, leaders will be lifted up to the Throne. Teachers, principals, policemen, and firemen will be interceded for. People will implore God to spare America for the sake of a few Christians (Genesis 18:22-33), earnestly asking God to give us strength to teach those around us about Him and His love and how He wants our country to run based on His principles shown in His Word. God will be begged to help our country. Will you be among the many who bow themselves before God and implore of Him for wisdom, strength, and help? Will you pray for your country to turn back to its Godly roots—not only today, but always? In American history, Congress has declared about 200 national days of praying, fasting, and thanksgiving. If America wants to remain free, we need to return to His plan for us and the Biblical principles on which our nation was founded. Pray. Pray for our country and our leaders to turn to God.

  3. Thanks, Bethany, for the reminder and encouragement. And we must never forget, whichever direction this nation goes, our true citizenship as Christians is in Heaven, and we are strangers on earth. He will never leave us or forsake us. I don't know what kind of country you will inherit from my generation, but it is one that will require your generation to follow hard after Him, and to never lose faith. I love ya. You are a true blessing and joy to Mom and me.

    1. Thank YOU, Dad! Yes, it is so nice to know where we are going and that we are citizens in heaven! When our names are written in the Book of Life, we have a different responsibility here on Earth—to try to change way the world is going. To change them towards God and a citizenship in heaven without fear for our life!
