Forty Days of Prayer

Today was the first day of "Forty Days of Prayer."

If you missed the first day, that's alright. Don't throw out the whole idea because you missed one day. Thirty-nine Days of Prayer will work.

Set your clock or phone to remind yourself to pray, if you're not already in the habit of praying for our country every day. Because forty days from today the fate of our great nation will be decided in the voting booth. Will we remain great? Will we turn back to God . . . restore prayer in our schools . . . restore sanctity of life and sanctity of marriage?

Will we be a beacon of hope as we've always been, or join so many other nations in mediocrity?

It's up to us. I saw a little carton the other day of a child praying. She was asking God to re-bless America. She said "There are more of us who love you than those who don't." I believe that. But we have to stand up and be counted. We have to put forth the effort.
America is worth our effort! God has blessed her in countless ways. Let's thank Him properly by turning her around and never, never allow anyone to say again that America is not a Christian nation.
