Time to Pray

NOTE: Enjoy this guest post from my husband and fellow Pastor, Greg Bishop.

Brothers and sisters, we can see what's happening in our country and around the globe. Morals are breaking down so rapidly that we can't tell what will happen next.

We can't change the whole world, or correct everything that troubles society today, at least not instantly. But we don't have to just lie down and give up.

Regardless of what some people say, this is still a Christian nation! Not to be condemning, but I believe that we Christians have committed the sin of omission.

We have failed to seek the true help we desperately need. The Christian faith in this country is under attack and it's time to earnestly pray. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says:

"if my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land." (NKJV)

You may say " I really don't know how to pray to get the response from God that we need."

Start off by praying that God will help us to be more concerned for our land. Then pray for our leaders, that God will give them open minds to seek His will and not their own.

Be earnest about your prayers. Be passionate about your prayers. God hears and He will answer!

James 5:16 is a good scripture to put to memory for such an occasion as this: "Confess your trespasses to one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." (NKJV)

Let's take the time to pray!
