About six weeks ago I posted my love of political news. With the election less than a month away, I thought I’d share an update of sorts.
There is a movement called If My People Pray 2012 where Christian leaders participate in a short video praying over a topic that lines up with 2 Chronicles 7:14.
14 Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. (NLT)
Leaders include Vonette Bright, Kirk Cameron, Ken Ham, Mike Huckabee, Anne Graham Lotz, and more. Topics include praying for marriage, sanctity of life, pastors, entertainers, revival, and other issues that should be on our prayer radar.
For the 40 days before the election people with a burden to pray commit to do so each day. The video features the leader that day praying. There are prayer points and a call to distribute the videos and prayer point to others through social media and e mail. In these tech savvy days there is also an app available for the iPhone, iPad, and Android.
For the United States of America, we appear divided, and that saddens me. The best course of action isn’t to stand, but to kneel.
I hope you’ll join me in praying for our nation.
