We have come to a pivotal time in God’s Kingdom. God is calling America into a renewed spirit of prayer. You see, prayer begins in our own backyard. In our own heart and in the larger scheme of things in our church. The Lord is knocking on the hearts of leaders and Christians all over the nation. Are we listening? In Colossians 4:2, God exhorts His people to be devoted to prayer, thankful and to watch. How can America watch unless she prays?
God Almighty is calling our great nation back to her roots, that is–prayer. The founding fathers founded America, the Constitution and our government on prayer. The Lord has abundantly blessed this nation because we prayed. For years and years now we have failed to pray as a nation. God’s power is manifested to His people when they pray.
“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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
This verse is often quoted but is it truly practiced? God said He would heal our land if we humble ourselves and turn from our sinful practices and seek Him for revival. God said it and He means what He said. He will heal our land if we turn from our wicked ways and ask Him to touch our nation. He said: “if my people who are a called by my name, will humble themselves …”
He isn’t saying every American must pray and seek His face. (That would be great though if everyone did!) He says those people who are “called by my name must pray.” He will change the hearts of our leaders, businessmen, professional people, etc. He will bring a renewed interest in godly matters and He will renew interest in His Word.
Gay marriages will become unheard of, pornography will stop and the fear of God will once again rule in this land. Revival isn’t impossible for the United States because all the nations are as a drop in the bucket to God. What does this mean? It means God is a big God and He can do anything! Can we hear the Spirit of God calling all believers to pray for our beloved country? Let’s join in the move of God that He desires to release in our nation. Renewal is just down the street and around the corner. Start praying!
Can you hear God calling America to pray? How does He specifically want you to pray?
