Praying For America

When I look at America and the way it is headed I have to admit I'm seriously afraid. As most of you know I don't like bugs I don't like heat I don't like walking or running but yet when I look at missionaries and martyrs these are things they have to face. And these are the MINOR things they face daily. I especially don't have a desire to be beheaded or want to hide just to stay alive. I believe the Holy Bible I believe in Jesus Christ and I believe in God. I want to stay true to my faith but it's scary. So today and hopefully every day I must lift this prayer from my heart to my Lord: 

Dear Lord Jesus, please let my friends,family, neighbors, and all my Christian brothers and sisters near and far feel you close to them. And help us to remain faithful as these situations in this world continues to go from bad to worse. Amen.

As Americans, we have been pampered and protected and live in almost an isolated safety net. We haven't been exposed to the risk of fighting for our religious beliefs for generations. But a time is coming and in ways has arrived. And I for one am scared. Most of us are NOT really prepared to stand firm and to defend ourselves against satan and his forces. Some who are reading this may have to face the enemy head on or know someone that will. I know most of us aren't physically able to fight BUT we all have one weapon that is at our fingertips. No, not your cell phone. We all have a direct line that doesn't require wifi. We just need to use it. Let's all pray for our missionaries, leaders, family and friends. Believers and non-believers. We need to turn our hearts back to what matters. I hope I can count on your prayers.

June Prayer Challenge...Can I Count You In?

Last night, I pulled up my list of friends from my facebook account and said a prayer for each one, because I have been reading so many sad posts lately. I have a friend struggling with loneliness that has turned away from God to satisfy the flesh. One friend has been dealing with serious family medical issues for months. Others are dealing with deaths, suicides, cancer, you get the point. Some I don't know if they are saved so I asked for salvation, some are graduating so I prayed for direction. What I'm getting at, is that ALL of us know someone that needs prayer. So I came up with an idea that I want to put out there for anyone and everyone that believes in the power of prayer. 

HERE IT IS: How about for the month of June we all pick a different person from our fb friends list each day. And we say a prayer for that person. I know a lot of us pray for a select few of our friends. This doesn't take the place of those prayers. This is in addition to those prayers. In this challenge you would pray for a different person each day that you don't normally pray for. Then if you want you could tag that person or write on their timeline, "I prayed for you today”. You wouldn’t have to say what you prayed for just let them know you prayed.  The next day you would chose a different person and repeat the process. If we all did this for 30 days think of the blessings we would read about in July's Facebook timelines.
I know this kind of thing is not for everyone. Some of you may think it is a good idea but don’t want to commit, and that is fine.  But all I ask is that you will give it some thought and help share this idea across all forms of media so that we can create a powerful outpouring of prayers for others.

This idea just came to me last night and I am only one person.  I don’t have corporate dollars or a large ad campaign all I have is the strength in numbers of fellow believers and prayer warriors to come along beside me and make this happen.  So I am begging each of you to give it some thought and share this idea on your timeline on Face book, Get the word out on twitter, Linked, instigram, whatever it takes but let’s get everyone praying.

 I really hope you will think about this and consider taking part in this "June Prayer Challenge". Please let me know if you are interested and please share this post so that we can get everyone praying. God bless all of you.
