You Know we need to PRAY!!!

I get an email from the Presidential Prayer Team, on a regular basis, I've been getting it since President Bush was in office during his first four years. If you want to find out more you can go here PrayerTeam@presidentialprayerteam.net.
Anyway the letter I got recently is encouraging us as believers to pray now for the up and coming National Day of Prayer on May 7Th.
Can there be a more needful time than now for us to unite in intercession for our nation??
  • More people are in unemployment lines today in the U.S. than in over 20 years..
  • Our economy remains in intensive care, seemingly on the verge of flat lining..
  • More of our troops are going to Afghanistan, while there's increasing unrest in Pakistan and uncertainty in Iraq..
  • President Obama and his administration are dealing with some of our greatest challenges in generations.

All that is true. Yet because of prayer, we know something else is equally true- that we serve a sovereign God who remains in control, orchestrating events according to His loving will, and is working daily in the lives of President Obama and all our leaders serving us in Washington D.C. Working in their lives- because we pray.

We have alot to pray about as we think about the United States of America, our families our future and next generations to come. Providing the Lord doesn't come first but in the mean time we need to be united in prayer for all of these things and to remember to the National day of Prayer that is coming in May. Christrians need to be bold and heard so the World will know who Jesus is..

Hi Nancy - I feel like I haven't seen you in so long! I'm going to have to sign up for the Presidential prayer team again. We were members and now we don't get the e-mails anymore. You're right - we really do need to pray!

We definitely do need to pray.
I work in real estate though and we are beginning to see positive signs that things may be turning around.
Just thought you might like to hear some good news and not all the negative the media puts out there!

I used to belong to that, also, but I think when we moved and changed computers, plus ISP's, at the same time we got disconnected from it somehow. Thanks for the reminder. We really do need to pray!

AMEN If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray.
