"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found"  (Psalm 32:6)


"Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury-- A violent whirlwind!" Jeremiah 23:19


Just after noon on Saturday, January 20, 2001, George Walker Bush took the oath of office as the 43rd President of the United States of America. Then, while rain and sleet fell on those gathered to witness this historic event, President Bush acknowledged "a new commitment to live out our nation's promise through civility, courage, compassion and character" during his inaugural address. His speech included the note from Virginia statesman John Page to Thomas Jefferson: "We know the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong. Do you not think an Angel rides in the Whirlwind and directs this Storm?" President Bush ended with: "This work continues. This story goes on. And an Angel still rides in the Whirlwind and directs this storm. God bless you all, and God bless America."

While America is one of the few places on earth where the transfer of power is a peaceful event, CHRISTIANS MUST CONTINUE TO PRAY. For President Bush to succeed, and succeed in a Godly sense, prayers must be made for the Will of God to be accomplished through the new Bush Administration. The American Church must pray that the whirlwind of the Lord persists in removing the wicked and in establishing His Kingdom here on earth.

Please Join Us in Believing Prayer:
Almighty God, we unite in agreement with Rev. Franklin Graham's inaugural invocation: "Blessed are You, O Lord, our God. Yours, O God, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is Yours... O Lord, as we come together... to inaugurate... a president and vice president, teach us afresh that power, wisdom and salvation come only form Your hand... Use them to bring reconciliation between the races, healing to political wounds, that we may truly become one nation under God... May this be the beginning of a new dawn for America as we humble ourselves before You and acknowledge You alone as our Lord, our Savior and our Redeemer... We pray this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and of the Holy Spirit. AMEN!" (Ps 18:1-3, 7-12, 25-27; 20:7-8; 149:5-9; Pr 1:20-33; Is 41:16; Na 1:3; 1 Thes 5:17; 1 Tim 2:1-4)
