AFA designates Monday, Nov. 5, as day of prayer and fasting

Filed under PrayerShare!  

There is much at stake in next Tuesday’s midterm election. Issues such as the sanctity of life, religious liberty, the security of our borders, our response to Islamic fundamentalism, and the advance of the radical LGBT agenda are all on the ballot.

AFA is encouraging God’s people to pray and fast on Monday, November 5, for God’s will to be done on Election Day. Let’s appeal to the God of heaven to intervene and motivate his people to select godly leadership to guide our country.

God has shown great mercy to our nation despite our manifest sins. We have seen Pastor Brunson released from a Turkish prison and pray for the president in the Oval Office. We have seen another constitutionalist (Brett Kavanaugh) seated on the Supreme Court despite intense opposition. And we have seen the president stand in the way of the transgender lobby and redirect both our military and the Department of Health and Human Services in a biologically and biblically correct direction. Let’s thank him for his undeserved grace.

Let us pray and fast in the following ways:

  • That Christians would continue to love the lost and share the gospel with them
  • That Christians would be emboldened to hold and defend a biblical worldview
  • That all candidates and our country itself would be protected from attacks from within and without during this election season
  • That the electorate would be granted God’s wisdom to choose candidates of godly character, discernment, and judgment

Please, forward this to your family and friends. Make copies of this alert to share with your pastor, church and Sunday School members.

If our mission resonates with you, please consider supporting our work financially with a tax-deductible donation. The easiest way to do that is through online giving. It is easy to use, and most of all, it is secure.

Oh My God

Oh My God

Many people scream “Oh my God” when something terrible happens. Mostly it is not an expression of faith but rather of disbelief. According to Webster’s 1828 dictionary disbelief is the “refusal of credit or faith; denial of belief. Our belief or disbelief of a thing does not alter the nature of the thing.”

When we have chosen the path of faith in Jesus Christ, should we use expressions like that? Should we scream and yell in disbelief? Even an atheist in an emergency will let out an expletive or cuss word appealing to a higher power he otherwise denies while everything is going his way. Anything from “Holy Mackerel” to “Holy Moly” and even worse.

Shouldn’t we turn those situations around and instead of expressing disbelief or even cursing, we are challenged  to use those moments to express an affirmation of faith or to speak a word of blessing?

Did you know that the term “O my God” appears 21 times in the Bible and mostly in the Psalms which are songs and prayers. Shouldn’t we learn from that for our prayer life as we pray evermore?

O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. Psalm 25:2

Prayer for President and all in authority.

Filed under PrayerShare!  

Will you pray with me?

A prayer for our nation’s leaders. The Scriptures tell us to pray for our national leaders so we can live a peacable life.

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” 1. Timothy 2:1,2

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2. Chronicles 7:14

This prayer is quoted from the 1986 book “The Rebirth Of America” by Nancy DeMoss. The book is still a hot topic and a guidebook charting the course for 2016.

We believe that “thoughts and prayers” are more powerful than executive orders. We do not believe in leaders who believe in “change” and set out to “fundamentally change America”. We serve the God who can change lives and fundamentally transform our hearts including the hearts of elected leaders and officials.
