Almost a week ago, President Trump stated:
“I’ve got to make the biggest decision of my life…This is by far the biggest decision of my life because I have to say okay, let’s go. This is what we’re going to do.”~President Trump, 4/10/2020
What was he talking about? Re-opening the country. It is a huge decision with health, economic and political ramifications.
- Health ramifications because if the economy is re-opened and Americans don’t continue to follow health protocols, a resurgence of the virus could occur and take more lives.
- Economic ramifications because the longer the economy remains depressed, the more dramatically it could impact particularly those in lower income brackets.
- Political, though the least of the concerns, is significant because this decision could potentially swing the November election.
Indeed, it is a big decision.
Soon after that, President Trump asked the nation to pray for him, and also asked:
“…all Americans to pray that God will heal our nation, to bring comfort to those who are grieving, to give strength to the doctors, nurses and healthcare workers, to restore the sick and to renew the hope in every person who is suffering.”
The Presidential Prayer Team has led the prayer effort and millions have prayed.
The day has come for that decision, and President Trump is set to make an initial announcement this afternoon. Join me in prayer throughout the day that the decision is one led by the Lord, and that our nation responds appropriately to it.
Beyond that, despite the gravity of this decision, there is another decision that is far more important. It is a personal decision that every single human being must make: Will you accept or deny Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. My prayer is that you…and President Trump…make that all-important decision, if you haven’t already. The ramifications of that decision are eternal.
Keep praying, saints!
