"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Today I want to challenge you to pray for our nation. Our nation is at a time of great crossroads. Morality has come under fire. Faith in God has come under fire. Righteousness has come under fire. But the Truth of God remains!
I want to encourage you today to pray for the following:
Pray for our President - It doesn't matter whether you voted for him or not. He is OUR president, and he needs our prayers. Pray that God will speak to his heart. Pray that the decisions he makes are decisions that will honor and God. Pray that God will protect him and his family.
Pray for the G20 Summit - Some of the world's top leaders will be in Pittsburgh THIS week. Pray that God will move the hearts of these men and women and that the decisions that are made concerning the economy, defense, and other issues will be ones that will honor God and best benefit our nation.
Pray for our Troops - It doesn't matter whether or not you agree with the wars that are being fought. Pray that God will protect our troops and give them victory.
Pray for our Leaders - Locally and nationally, there are many men and women who are responsible for making and enforcing the laws of our land. Pray that God would reveal Truth to them. Pray for those that do stand for righteousness, that God would give them the strength to stand up under the fire.
Pray AGAINST "Moral Relevance" - There are many that say that "what was wrong before, isn't necessarily wrong now...times have changed." Yes, times may have changed, but God's Truth NEVER CHANGES. Abortion is still wrong. Homosexuality is still wrong. We believe in a God of forgiveness and a God of love AND we believe in a God who has the power to change hearts and lives.
Join us today as we pray for our nation!
