THE GOLDEN MINISTRY, No. 16 - DO YOU PRAY FOR YOUR NATION DAILY?

GoldMin16God calls His house a house of prayer. If it is not a house of prayer, it is not His house.

Isaiah 66: 7: “Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in MY HOUSE OF PRAYER: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called a HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL PEOPLE.” This Scripture is repeated in the New Testament in Matthew 21;13; Mark 11:17; and Luke 19:46.

At a recent meeting for men I asked them to put up their hands if they were personally praying for our nation and President Trump on a regular basis. I was saddened that only one person put up their hand.

I questIoned them if they thought God was going to bless America whether we prayed or not. They just stared at me. I asked if they felt God owed it to America to bless us and make us great again. Once again, there was very little response.

These were God-fearing, conservative men, and yet I think they felt that those we elected were mainly responsible for fixing our nation’s problems. After all, this the reason we elect them, right? Wrong. I think many feel that all they should do is to attend to their own affairs, go to church once a week, and seek to be good husbands, fathers, and citizens. Not enough to change this nation.

Not only should we be praying in a general sense for our country, but even more specifically, for major legislations they need to pass.

I believe God wants us to be specific when we pray. Keep abreast of what is happening in the nation and pray. One man cannot make our nation great again. It is only God. And it can only happen as we pray. Pray personally and pray collectively as a family each day. You may not be able to pray for President Trump in his presence, but you can pray just as effectively in your homes.

Jeremiah 33:3: “Call unto me and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not.”

Be encouraged.
