People of Prayer

if_my_poeple1As we start this new year, the real issues we face as a nation are not so much political or cultural, as they are spiritual.

Franklin Graham says “Today we are facing a godless agenda, led by men and women who want nothing to do with God or His Word and who hate Christ and His followers.” Traditional freedoms are threatened, while religious opposition and even persecution are rising, and the practice of our faith can no longer be taken for granted.

The Bible says we should be careful how we live, “…not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16). The Apostle Paul told Timothy (1 Timothy 2:1-4) that if we want to “…lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity…” we must PRAY for “…all men, for kings and all who are in authority.”

President’s Day is February 18.  Let us send your family a copy of  IF MY PEOPLE—A 40-day Prayer Guide for the Nation. This small book contains 40-daily-devotional readings of prayers and Scriptures “for such a time as this,” plus seven powerful prayers from past presidentsall petitioning God to turn our hearts and our nation back to Him. Just ask for your copy, when you send a gift this month, so we can get it to you in time for President’s Day!

Our nation can be positively impacted by the prayers of millions of believers. Let us all commit to be people of prayer in this new year!
