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.
Do you feel life is a burden and not a pleasure? Are family, friends, work, and even your government not giviing you the delight or peace of mind and protection that you believe they should offer? I’ve felt that way before. I’ve felt let down and that personal and social circumstances are out of control.
The good news is, we don’t have to feel that way. God did not create us to be in distress. He creates through His love; giving ability to us to receive His love.
When you love something, you don’t turn your back on it. You nurture it. You remain close, never abandoning your creation. You draw near and care for it.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the light. No one goes to the Father except through Jesus Christ.
This truth is applicable not only to mankind individually but also as a whole involving our nation. Christian citizens of American, together we can save our country. By reading and understanding God’s word, then applying His truth and principles to ourselves, our families, our social and work areas, and yes, also our government–America will be saved.
To be saved individually is to know Jesus, Matthew 1:21. To know God is to know the Image Of God, 2 Corinthians 4:4. To trust in the Lord is to know the Lord Jehovah, Isaiah 26:4. When we know Jesus our hearts desire is to live morally by His commands.
We can apply these same principles for America. If we want to overcome turmoil in Washington, to see past the color of our brother’s and sister’s skin, or enjoy peace within our borders–we need to turn to the Ruler and Commander of all peoples.
