PRAYER - AMERICA'S ONLY HOPE!
Proverbs 11: 14 (NLT) says this about the current and most recent leadership in America “Without wise leadership, a nation falls; with many counselors, there is safety.”
This country is not only heading for a huge fall into perdition, but plunging headlong into it. While it is easy to blame current pagan politicians (and there is none of them righteous, not even one), who only find a church door at election time to find votes, the biggest fault lies with almost all pastors, preachers and church leaders.
The average pastor prays 3 minutes per day (source: www.prayingpastorsproject.com) , spends all his time inside his office and almost none reaching the lost. Discipleship INSIDE the church is almost non-existent. Prayer services can only be found in 1 out of each 100 or so churches and this is from my own research in Springfield, Illinois.
But once per year, we have the God-given right and opportunity to come together as the Community of Christ to pray for our Families, city, community, country and the US Military. If there was ever a time to pray, it is now! The Bible, the only real authority of the Mind and Heart of God, is clear - God only hears the prayer of His people. There is no other faith, religion or other "spirituality" than Christ and Christ alone. In fact, if you ever hear the word "spirituality", run in the opposite direction!
This coming Thursday May 7, 2009 is the annual National Day of Prayer Noon Rally at the Illinois State Capitol, the people's forum. Come pray with us - Apostle James Nesbit and other leaders in the local Christian Community. Worship will be led by Christian recording artists iPrayz of Effingham, Illinois.
