Message to all Christians: ONE MINUTE EACH NIGHT
a forwarded email with no author listed | unknown | unknown

Posted on 10/10/2008 8:34:40 PM PDT by PrayAndVoteConservesInLibsOut

I'm forwarding this for the sake of our country and land...

Calling all Christians to prayer at least ONE MINUTE NIGHTLY:

With God all things are possible:

Do you believe we can take God at His word, call upon His name, then stand back and watch His wonders unfold? This scripture gives Christians, ownership of this land and the ability to call upon God to heal it. I challenge you to do that.

II Chronicles 7:14: '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.'

During WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill, who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every night at a prescribed hour for one minute, to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people and peace. This had an amazing effect, as bombing stopped.

There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America.

The United States of America, and our citizens, need prayer more than ever!!! If you would like to participate, each evening at 9:00 P.M. Eastern Time (8 PM Central, 7 PM Mountain, 6 PM Pacific), stop whatever you're doing, and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, for peace in the world, the upcoming election, that the Bible will remain the basis for the laws governing our land, and that Christianity will grow in the U.S.

Someone said if people really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have. Thank you.

Please pass this on.

I’ll pray! Elijah List has a good prophetic article about praying on October 29th for our economic system and Wall Street. It’s the anniversary of the Crash and beginning of the Depression. It’s a good one with prayers added. I hope you’ll get it and pray it.

I’ll commit to praying each night at 9:00 p.m. If we all get on our knees, we will see a change, and God will make a difference!

Interesting... I was thinking of Churchill’s addresses to the British just today. “upon this battle depends the entire course of Western Civilization.” (paraphrased from memory, sorry if not 100%) I will pray.

Already am!

We need to always remember also that we have an intercessor who is always there for us. As well as our comforter the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:26, Ephesians 2:18, Romans 8:34

Scripture is contrary to what you are saying.

Romans 13:1 “Everyone must submit to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those that exist are instituted by God.”-HCSB™.

Further, under Nero, Paul wrote:

1 Timothy 2:1-4 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

So, it is clear
1) God is in control of who is instituted as a leader in any arena and can shape and influence wills according to His plan

2)We should pray for leaders and those who are in authority that we may live peaceful lives

Since we must pray, we might as well pray for repentance for our nation and mercy in terms of the election. God is gracious. Perhaps He will be gracious to us again.

Jesus has never stopped interceding for us, even us in the USA. You can't blame God for the mess this country is in. His word is clear on what He requires from us believers, and frankly, the majority of (us) Christians haven't been up to task in fulfilling those requirements (righteousness, prayer without ceasing, repentance, etc.) But, He is still God, He is still merciful, and He still stands by His word. He promises that if we will humble ourselves, seek His face (not just His hand) and turn from our wicked ways" then He will hear from heaven and heal our land. As long as He is on the throne, there is hope for this country.

You may not believe this, but don't you dare mock those of us who do...

I think this is an excellent idea! I’ll pray at 11:00 each night. Lately I’ve felt the need to pray more often, especially given the dark dark days we will face in November if Obama is elected.

Pray for our troops.
Pray for President Bush (even if we are all furious at him right now).
Pray for the American people that their eyes will be opened and they will truly see Obama for what he truly is.
Pray for John McCain, that he will be given strength and clarity to expose Obama.
Pray for our nation, that God will continue to bless us and protect us.
Pray for your families and friends.

God has not left us, nor will He.

...Stewardship of this land...

We're to be as Pilgrims here, and be accountable to God for what we do with what He has trusted us.

And, if we ever prayed in our lives, now is that time.

2 Corinthians 4:8-10
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

"I am a Christian , but I believe God has left us to our own devices . He is NOT going to save us from Obama . We are going to get what the majority want ."

You do not know what God will do. None of us know.

It's true we all have some culpability in our current situation. God might or might not deliver us from this current situation. He is sovereign. He decides. Neither you nor I. But He certainly can. He is able to deliver us. And I have prayed and will continue to pray for forgiveness, grace and mercy for myself, my family, my nation.

Dan 3:17-18
"If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up."


We don't deserve to be delivered. But we never deserved salvation either. It is a free gift. We are completely dependent upon His grace.

“Us” as in Christians. I as a Christian adhere to the Word Of God meaning scripture. It is not about any certain country or candidate it is about our relationship with Father God through Jesus Christ.
I am praying HARD for my country and will not give in to cynicism or defeatism. Our country CAN be great again if we will turn from our immoral ways. Whether that ever happens or not I WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY in faith that it will and do what I can to see it to fruition.

I am not blaming God at all . It is us - the people of the USA I am blaming . And I am not mocking anyone . It would appear that a majority of Americans want Obama . No amount of praying is going to change that . God is all-knowing , right ? So he already knows the outcome of the election .

Prayer changes more than you or I could ever imagine. Yes, God is all knowing, and He does know who is going to win this election. However, you don’t, and rather than being so negative and presumptive of the outcome, maybe you could try having a little faith in His word. Pray that their hearts and minds be changed. Pray that the scales fall off of their eyes and they see him for what he really is. Pray that they have an ear to hear the truth with. Pray that they receive revelation. Pray that what has been done in the cloak of darkness be revealed in the light. Pray for mercy upon us and this land. These are all sound scriptural requests. Speak His word in prayer over this election situation. Doing nothing guarantees defeat. If it is to be that Obama wins this election, at least I know I will have done all I can do, and I will have to accept it, and I will still praise God for who He is and not just what He can do. I can’t blame anyone without first looking long and hard at my own shortcomings and doing something about them first.

Thank you. There aren't coincidences or accidents. Ronald Reagan had something to say in 2004.

He was a great communicator, and would be the first to admit he was just the messenger.

If we listen, we will hear.

Louis Grizzard's preacher had the sheriff with the car, the Red Cross with the boat, and the National Guard with the chopper.

We're being resupplied.

We are advancing. . . .

I am joining in the nightly prayer. Prayer is the best defense we have to what our nation is up against this election.

I am also praying that if it is in His will to have Obama as our next President that I can accept and understand that it is His will and must happen. I am so scared of that happening but it is comforting to know that He is in control.

Thank you for posting. It is a good reminder to us all.

Not necessarily so - scripture is full of examples of where when God’s people followed II Chron. 7:14, events of a judgment nature were halted, delayed or postponed. We may deserve Obama, but in this election, I truly believe prayer is more important than voting. God alone can bring into the light that which changes minds, or bring events - such as the ‘perfect storm’ that has brought our financial collapse and Obama’s new poll strength. All that can be reversed in a day by sovereign, divine intervention. We need to pray for mercy - and a sovereign move from Above. Else we are a Marxist state in 3 - 4 years - and possibly totally disolved as a nation soon thereafter. The stakes are simply - everything on earth. Eternal salvation alone being through the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

“God does nothing on earth except in answer to believing prayer.”—John Wesley.

Many of the members of my church are participating in the Praying4America.com national prayer movement in obedience with 2 Chronicles 2:14. Every day we pray for the Christians and churches (including members, pastors, priests, rabbis, etc) in two states. We also on different days pray for our political leaders on the local, state and federal levels. We also pray for police, sheriff, and state police personnel, and we pray for the judges at all levels of the judicial system. By election day, we will have covered all 50 states.

May we turn our faces to God and may He have mercy upon us and heal our land.

It appears that you believe what the liberal media is telling the public. Don’t you know that the Satan is the prince of the air. So don’t believe what you hear or read from the liberal media.

God knows everything but He also wants us to have godly leaders. Obama is not one them.

So put on you spiritual eyeglasses and fight the good fight if not stay aside and let the spirit of the Lord work through His children.
