If you were one of 50,000 who joined Franklin Graham live this morning for the prayer event for the Republican National Convention, bless you!
If you are like me and had work commitments that kept you from it, please go to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page, hear his videotaped plea to America for prayer, and his spoken prayer that followed. Then, pray in unison with him!
Graham stated that he believes our nation is “unraveling” (a term used a lot these days), and is inching toward anarchy. I would add to that, we are inching toward the last moments of human history as we know it! The end times are here and we must be ready for our Bridegroom…the Blessed Hope!
50,000 gathered with Franklin Graham this morning to pray, and if that is the bulk of the total who are joining him, I am embarrassed! There are over 318 million people in America and 83% of them claim to be Christians. While I believe that is likely a very inflated percentage, let’s suppose the true percentage is only 10% (a number I believe is low). That is over 31 MILLION people who identify themselves as Christians…yet only 50,000 turn out to pray?
Come on believing friends…let’s get in the game! Can you imagine what would happen if 31 MILLION people joined together in prayer for our nation? Revival!!! I truly believe there are far more than 50,000 people praying, but I sincerely doubt we have put a dent in the millions! If you are praying…good for you…and thank you! Now, get your friends to join you!
If you are a Christian, yet not praying, please do! Jesus said:
“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.”
In a nation falling off its foundation, the ruin will be great! We must build our house on the Solid Rock of Jesus Christ! Call out to Him on behalf of our nation! Time is short, and God is removing His hand of blessing and protection. As Christians, will we be found faithful?
