The first Thursday of May each year is designated "National Day of Prayer". It is a day to focus on the spiritual needs of our nation and to pray for leaders who make governing decisions that direct the course of our nation. Many believers seem to feel more and more like the New Testament Thessalonian Christians: "Jesus is coming soon; what shall we do?" When we consider the incredible happenings around the world, Matthew 24 and other Biblical prophecies that speak of the 'end times' seem to be lining up as never before.
Perhaps you gathered at First Baptist Church, Minden, or other places of worship, in your home or office, or in the quietness of your "prayer closet" to lift up petitions of prayer. The Bible clearly teaches of the power of prayer when one's heart is right with God...we must we humble ourselves before Him, seek His face, turn from our wicked ways. and ask for forgiveness! We must pray for healing to come upon our personal lives and our nation...God, then, promises: "I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and bring healing in their land". (2 Chronicles 7: 14-15).Subscribe to Read!
