Week 1 of 40 Days of Prayer, by the Christian, to the Holy One of Israel, had us looking inwardly at the sorry state of the soul and the war against it. We prayed for the mercy of God and pressed in properly, with Psalm 28 as our platform.
Week 2 begins with a rediscovery of the lost practice of Praise, powerful Praise....the kind which we must live for and acknowledge as sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. Simply put, America will not truly prosper until America learns to bow the knee. This is the focus as we start this week of intercession.
To repeat - America must right now, this day, begin to put on "sackcloth and ashes" and start looking up in Praise. He will accept nothing less:
Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness.
The voice of the LORD is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the LORD, over many waters.
The voice of the LORD is powerful;
the voice of the LORD is full of majesty. (Psalm 29:1-4 ESV)
