There is a grass roots prayer effort happening across our country, reportedly inspired from the efforts of an advisor to Prime Minister Winston Churchill during WWII.
W. Tudor Pole, an English author, was that advisor to Churchill. It was Pole’s idea to encourage Britain, during that difficult time, to pray for the safety of England, its people, and peace, each night. The chosen time was at 9 PM during the chiming of Big Ben, which took about one minute.
Churchill supported the idea, along with King George VI, his Parliamentary Cabinet, and their country’s citizens who believed in the power prayer. What a beautiful testament to faith in God.
America, let us as believers, duplicate Pole’s idea. Let us unite together for our nation by corporately praying each night for one minute.
“There is no power on earth that can withstand the united cooperation on spiritual levels of men and women of goodwill everywhere. It is for this reason that the continued and widespread observance of the Silent Minute is of such vital importance in the interest of human welfare.”– W. Tudor Pole
Each night at 9 PM Eastern, 8 PM Central, 7 Mountain, or 6 Pacific, stop whatever you are doing and spend 1 minute in prayer specifically for our nation.
Pray with confidence God will: redeem our government, protect our troops, engage our citizens in righteousness, bring peace, oversee elections, restore biblical principles back to Washington DC, retain biblical principles as the basis for laws in our land, and for Christianity to flourish abundantly in the U.S.
Pray that America glorifies God.
Just as England specifically and corporately prayed during a dire time of need, pray tonight, and every night at the allotted time in your time zone, that God intervenes and places His hedge of protection around us.
9 PM Eastern – 8 PM Central – 7 PM Mountain – 6 PM Pacific
Set your alarm each day in advance so you don’t miss a single night of prayer.
I encourage you to pass this post along.
Prayer calls out to God. May His power over the sins of mankind leave us speechless.
Exodus 15:7-13 “In the greatness of your majesty you threw down those who opposed you. You unleashed your burning anger; it consumed them like stubble. By the blast of your nostrils the waters piled up. The surging waters stood up like a wall; the deep waters congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy boasted, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake them. I will divide the spoils; I will gorge myself on them. I will draw my sword and my hand will destroy them.’ But you blew with your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.
Who among the gods is like you, LORD? Who is like you— majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders? “You stretch out your right hand, and the earth swallows your enemies. In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.
1 Chronicles 29:11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.
Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
“I know that the Lord is always on the side of the right; but it is my constant anxiety and prayer that I and this nation may be on the Lord’s side.”– President Abraham Lincoln
ARE YOU A FOLLOWER OF JESUS?
If you’re not certain you’ve ever invited Jesus into your heart, now is the perfect time. Pray this sinner’s prayer found at Gotquestions.com. Through Jesus you will receive the hope that He alone offers.
“God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!”
