National Day of Prayer

Today is America's National Day of Prayer. Many Christians set aside this day to intercede for their country, but shouldn't every day be a day of prayer? As Christians, we have the duty to come before the throne of Christ daily. Not only is it our duty to our country, it is our duty before God. It is the only way to save our country from utter destruction. 2 Chronicles 7:14 is our only hope for our nation to be forgiven, “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” While this was spoken to the Israelites, to me, this is a perfect description of the world today—proud and wicked. I am not saying that everyone in the world is this way, but I know that for the Christians living in this world but who are not part of it, it is up to them to come humbly before God and repent for the sins of their country. America has chosen to set aside the first Thursday of May every year to pray and intercede for the leaders of this country. Lost though it may be, it is not a lost cause. Can we spend this day in prayer? Will we humble ourselves and repent for the sins of our country? Furthermore, will we make the choice to make every day a day of prayer? Please take the time to plead with God to forgive our country for its ungodly practices and for turning away from Him. In Him there is always hope. Thank you. :)

  1. I loved what you said Bethany, and I agree with you one hundred and ten percent. Everyday should be a day of prayer – prayer for redemption for the quickly declining state of our great country.

    Thanks for sharing from your heart, my friend! :)

  2. There is always hope. That's one of the things I love about God! I think the thing we are getting caught up on is that we, as Christians, have not been willing to turn from our wicked ways. The TV and box office would be a good place to start.
