Prayer - A solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God.
Prayer is powerful! It has an impact; it is vital. As we are in election day today I can't help but think that this is so much more than just going into the voting booth, checking the little boxes, walking out and going on with your life! We have the incredible and unique opportunity to make a difference in our nation. We are choosing the path our nation will take for the future. This is a huge responsibility!
America has been one of the most blessed countries in the world. And that is not just by chance or accident! If we want America to continue to be a free blessed nation, we must work, sacrifice, vote, and PRAY for our country.
The first Congress held in Philadelphia on September 5, 1774, opened with prayer which lasted for several hours! When news reached Virginia of the closing of the port of Boston due to the Boston tea party, June 1st was set aside as a day of fasting and prayer. And there are so many more stories of our founding fathers diligently praying for America. Let us not take lightly what SO many people have sacrificed for!
"You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it." - John Quincy Adams
"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, andprayand seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
