I want to wish you and yours a happy Labor Day and ask you for a simple request.
I have had many discussions with people about the future of our country. To be short and sweet, I am simply going to ask you to pray, and to pray like you may never have prayed before. I am asking that you join me in praying daily for our nation, and for our elected and appointed political leaders, and for our upcoming elections.
Really we are only talking about roughly 60 days of prayer. Here are a few reasons you may choose to join me:
- It is biblical to pray for kings and all who are in high positions of authority (Cf. 1 Timothy 2:1-6).
- Our leaders and nation need prayer on a regular basis.
- Our country needs specific prayers for safety. There are threats of imminent attacks coming from terrorist cells operating south of our border (i.e. in South America and Mexico).
- Our country and states need prayer leading up to elections. Pray that God would provide us with leaders who both desire, and are committed to honoring God in every area of their life including how they legislate, and who are committed to faithfully represent their districts, state and country.
Are You Taking The 60 Day Prayer Challenge?
All I am asking you to do is commit to praying daily with us for the next 60 days, and begin this by signing up today to receive daily email reminders through our prayer website at www.Pray1Tim2.org.
I believe God will honor these prayers, and who knows, you may just decide that you want to continue praying for our political leaders, according to the first priority of Scripture revealed in 1 Timothy 2: 1-6. The above mentioned prayer website is a powerful prayer tool, it is always free to join, and you can easily subscribe (or unsubscribe from it) at any time.
Here is a friendly challenge. If you are not already receiving our prayer reminders, please sign up to receive them now. It takes two minutes to do this. Also, please tell your friends about your new commitment to pray for our political leaders for the next two months, and ask them to join with you by by signing up today! Do not underestimate the power of prayer. To make it even more fun and interesting, the next time you are tempted to complain about a political leader, or about the direction of our nation, realize you could have prayed instead, and see this as your opportunity to do something different and sign-up and join with us in prayer. If you sign up, and you hear your friends complaining, tell them of your new commitment, and challenge them to do what you are doing, to take the 60 day challenge to pray for their leaders.
Thanks again for making a difference, by way of prayer and partnership with this ministry. By God's grace we are making a difference!
PS I plan on speaking later this month to anywhere from 20-40 pastors, please pray for this, and for another pastor's meeting that is in the works!
