Me thinks it's time for the 94% of Americans who believe in God, and the 84% of Americans who believe that Jesus is God to unify and call out to Him.

Yeah, purhaps prayer requests number one n number two for the Church need to be..  1.)  For spiritual awakening among the lost here and, 2.)  For authentic revival among those who ain't but used to be. You know for the believers in America today so we can actually be what we be called to be, and so the others can see Christ in us. Think about it. And I want to encourage you in this effort. There really is no better investment of our time and the need is so great. Some people might say it is the Lord who is point at those leaders here, but it really is not the Lord who is pointing His finger at our American Supreme Court, or at our White House, or at our Capitol per se. Don't get me wrong, I'm not excusing those who work in these places. Perhaps you get feeling as frustrated as I do over some of the worse decisions of history that have been made by many of these people in representing us as a Nation.

But if you are a Christian, God is actually looking at you and at me to humble ourselves, to pray, and to earnestly seek God's face. After that, He expects us to take the right action. And what's that all about? Here is what some of that is about...  

"Go into all the world and preach the Gospel" ~ Jesus

 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." ~ Jesus, (Matthew 28:19–20)

"Sodom's sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness, while the poor and needy suffered outside her door. She was proud and committed detestable sins, so I wiped her out, as you have seen." ~ (Ezekiel 16:49–50)

"If God doesn't punish America, He'll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah." ~ Ruth Graham

Are you an almost Christian, a lukewarm Christian, a nominal Christian, or a red-hot God would have you? Hey, aren't those the same sins that too many in our Nation have committed as well? What about our treatment of teachers, parents, and the authority of God's word—just think of our nation and the sense of entitlement. And what do you think the Lord will do about this if His Church doesn't pray in faith and obey? Do you think He'll just wink at it or turn a blind eye to it forever. Naww. Church, like never before it's time for us to get on our knees, wait on Him, and pray for this wayward Land. Need some more encouragement in this direction?
