In 1988 President Reagan signed a Bill designating the first Thursday in May as a National Day of Prayer in America. This year President Trump has called the citizens of our Land to set aside today to Pray for our Country. I cannot remember a period in my lifetime when we have needed Prayer more then we do today.
In James 5:16 the Bible says “The effective fervent Prayer of a righteous man avails much.” There is great power in the Prayers of the Redeemed. On this special Day of Prayer may Christians everywhere “Humble themselves……..PRAY……seek God’s face…..and turn from their wicked ways.” Then let’s ask the Lord to “Hear our Prayers & Heal our Land!” Yes, we certainly need both Spiritual healing & Physical healing. Spiritually we need a national Revival & The Gospel to transform lives. Physically we plead for healing from the curse of the Coronavirus & to be made whole again. As we Pray today let’s remember that our Prayers are directed to a Sovereign God who both hears & answers our Prayers.
If you have a special prayer request please call me at (304) 776-1619.
Have a “Prayer – Filled” day!
