Tomorrow (May 7th) is National Day of Prayer. This is a national holiday set aside so that every one may stop their busy schedule and observe a day to turn your face to the heavens and thank the Almighty for the air in your lungs and all the blessings that one may have. It is also a wonderful time to ask God to touch the lives of those around you and our national leaders. I hope you join me in this wonderful event. As you go through your day tomorrow, know that your whole nation will be banning together and praying for the country.
A lot of bloggers/media/columnists are talking about President Obama not observing this day publicly. Don’t let that discourage you. Be encouraged! Pray harder!
Here are 7 simple suggestions for tomorrow as suggested by www.nationaldayofprayer.org.
Pray our leaders will act with wisdom and integrity. (I Kings 3:28)
Pray for divine protection and guidance for our armed forces. Intercede for military chaplains and loved ones at home. (II Chronicles 32:6-8)
Pray for fair and accurate reporting. (Proverbs 12:9-22)
Pray that God will raise up His ambassadors in the workplace. (Matthew 5:14-16)
Pray for protection in all schools and morally sound instruction. (Deuteronomy 11:18-19)
Pray churches will be strengthened and readied for revival. (Matthew 16:18-19)
Pray the God will build faith foundations in families. (Joshua 24:15)
God wasn’t listening? I don’t know what God you pray to but my God is always listening.
I especially like the government prayer. Unfortunately, it appears that God wasn’t listening on this one for the past eight years. Let’s pray He’ll listen for at least the next four.
AMERICA IS IN DESPERATE NEED FOR THE GREAT PROMISE OF GOD IN HIS HOLY SCRIPTURES 2 CHRONICLES 7:14,15,16 THAT GOD WOULD COME AND HEAL OUR SICK NATION IF WE AS A PEOPLE WOULD TURN BACK TO HIM AND HIS WAYS LETS US PRAY FOR REVIVAL TODAY.
HOW DO WE KNOW THE BIBLE IS TRUE IT HAS BEEN TELLING THE FUTURE FOR 6000 YRS AND HAS NEVER BEEN WRONG NO OTHER BOOK CAN SAY THAT GODS WORD IS THE ONE AND ONLY TRUTH
90% of people in the US believe in a higher being. That means that 90% of the “whole country” will be praying tomorrow. I apologize in my over-stating.
The whole country will be “banning” together? I certainly hope not.
