"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found" (Psalm 32:6)
Vigilance in Prayer Still Needed!
Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good... (Ps 107:1).
The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed (Ps 103:6).
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer (Ro 12:12).
God has extended His Grace to America in His answers to our prayers. He has shown Himself to be faithful to His Word, granting favor to His people. Yet, vigilance in prayer is still needed.
Today, many Christians are rejoicing at the safe rescue of the eight Christian aid workers from the Taliban in Afghanistan. Americans Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer, along with two Australians and four Germans, are recovering in Pakistan from their harrowing time of imprisonment. The freed aid workers were with the German-based relief organization Shelter Now International and had been accused by the Taliban of preaching Christianity to Muslims in Afghanistan.
Christian members and aides of both Houses of Congress are rejoicing over the Senate's passing of SCR 15, "The National Day of Reconciliation" resolution. The Senate passed the measure late Monday night having passed the House earlier this year. The resolution calls for members of both the House and Senate to come together to seek the blessings of Providence for forgiveness, reconciliation, unity and charity for all people of the United States.
In the past few months, over 600,000 individuals have pledged to pray for President George W. Bush on a daily basis. The Presidential Prayer Team is has a goal to mobilize 1% of the population - 2.8 million people - to pray daily for the President. Their web site states, "This effort is non-partisan and invites participation by anyone who prays to the God of the Bible. The Presidential Prayer Team is an independent, nonprofit organization with a single purpose and goal. The goal is simply to incite daily prayer for the Office of the President." Those interested in joining may call 1-800-295-1235 or visit their web site at http://www.presidentialprayerteam.org.
Beginning Saturday, November 17, 20 million Christians from around the world are expected to join in the tenth annual 30-Day Global Prayer Vigil for the Muslim community. This prayer vigil coincides with the Islamic month Ramadan. For more information, see http://www.hfe.org/prayer/ramadan/30dlist.htm.
As we wrote in our latest Washington Insider Report, "If we repent, God could use America... to liberate millions of... Muslims from their repressive religion, and open the now-closed Muslim world to the preaching of the gospel of Christ. If we do not repent, God could multiply our enemies and bring grinding devastation to our proud nation and apostatizing culture." While we celebrate the goodness of God, let us be vigilant in our prayers of Repentance.
