My friend, it’s time we fasted, prayed and sought God’s face. It is time we humbled ourselves before Him, repented, and cried out to Him for revival in our nation and the world. If we, as the Church of the living God, aren’t doing this, who will?
We are a blessed people! We enjoy so many freedoms. But we stand to lose much of our blessing and quite possibly, freedom itself, if we don’t open our eyes to what is happening around us and take action!
In his “Thanksgiving Day Proclamation” in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln said,
“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven. We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the Offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”
It’s time that we as the Body of Christ raise a righteous standard; it’s time for us to stand in the gap, grab hold of the horns of the altar, and cry out to God for forgiveness and mercy. We must shake off the seduction of the world that has tried to put us in chains. Now is the hour for us to wage real spiritual warfare.
Jesus tells us that the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and violent people take it by force (Matthew 11:12). We have to get spiritually violent! Not in the form of protests, marches, boycotts, or anything else in the natural world. We’ve got to get violent in the spiritual world! It’s time to tear down the strongholds of the enemy, to bind the powers of darkness, and to loose the powers of light and righteousness.
Remember, God said only when we humble ourselves, turn from our wicked ways, and seek His face would He forgive our sin and heal our land.
Our nation needs to be healed. Will you be a part of the healing process?
Are you ready to pray for our country and the world?
The Bible says that one can put a thousand to flight and two can put ten thousand to flight (Deuteronomy 32:30). May we join our faith and prayers together and bombard the heavens, asking God for spiritual restoration.
Let’s pray for America. Pray for our leaders. Pray for those in government and in authority. Pray for safety and protection over our beloved land. Pray for revival.
