National Day of Prayer

Tomorrow is the National Day of Prayer. This event was all started back in 1952, signed into effect by President Truman. It's purpose is to invite all Christian churches to host a day of prayer and/or fasting and invite Christians to pray for the nation, it's leaders and our communities.

Tonight our church is observing the National day of Prayer by holding a special prayer service followed by a balloon release. I am speaking on the topic of personal requests for prayer. My main points will be that we are told to pray for one another, and share each other's burdens. I am recounting the cool story in Acts Chapter 12 where Peter is met by an angel of God and released from prison while the church prayed for him. Also in Malachai 3:16 and Hebrews 10:24, we are told to seek God together, and spur one another on. Yup. Sounds like we better get to praying for one another to me!

Many people are facing a difficult decision in this upcoming election. I myself and not entirely sure who I will vote for. Please join with me in prayer, asking for guidance when it comes to casting your vote. Voting is a privilege, and we should not do it lightly or flippantly. We all need to come together and pray for the right candidate to be elected, and that he will be a good leader for us all.

I am with you Sis, there is no candidate that has swayed me either. Right now I feel like it is a toss up as to who would be best for this country of ours. I hope your prayer service reached many souls and the prayers are answered as God sees fit. Take care, I love you very much.
