Just One Minute Each Night

ONE MINUTE EACH NIGHT

In W.W.II, 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 has been done before here, and I propose we do it again until the 2012 election night. We'll see if it helped.

If you would like to participate: Each evening at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (8:00PM Central) (6:00 PM Pacific), stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, and for a Godly nation.

I know this sounds corny, but let's do this together, ok?

If you know anyone who would like to participate, please pass this along. And if any of you have special prayers for love ones etc. please pass them on.

Maybe someone can form a prayer list of Freepers where by we are all notified for this, and we can report to each other on the outcomes.

Someone said if we 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, and God Bless America (home of the free BECAUSE of the brave)

6 pm may not work for me (I am in the throes of making dinner for a lot of people most nights), however, I do indeed pray for the 2012 elections and will make a point of doing so nightly.

. . . completely omitting our troops in the post, my mistake, but they are included! Also regularly prayed for from the pulpit at our church.

Anyway, the 2012 elections will have an extraordinary impact on our troops and the Wars; so of course it is appropriate to pray for them in addition.

Sounds like a good thing. It would be 0900 my time.(GMT +8)
I'd heard about this group in WWII before.
Pray for the nation and the world.

God bless you for this suggestion, Nikos. Is that your birthday, 11/21? It’s mine. And yes, I will commence with a 3pm prayer in Hawaii and pass the word here. I’ll let you know how many I can recruit.

I KNOW the power of prayer. We’re with y’all here in Battle Creek. And will forward the message.

I’m in.

Setting the alarm on my phone to remind me.

Thanks.

Yes, prayer works. WE don’t always see how it works, but it works.

I will pray for all those things that you suggested, but I will add the following:

** That if Obama is a usurper that he be lawfully, legally, and **promptly** removed.

** That the 53% of the population that voted for him can be enlightened and brought to an understanding of the wisdom of limited government based on the Constitution.

** That the government schools be closed that we as conservatives can find a way to offer every child in this nation a private education that upholds the child's specific Judeo/Christian faith and our nation's founding principles.

Wonderful idea! The day this nation turns to God again, is the day this nation becomes great again. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.

I have been praying for America every night without fail since the communist started to defeat Hillary (not that I’m a fan of hers, but Obama accomplished the difficult task of proving himself even worse), and I will continue to do so. Timing is a problem, since I have several kids, but I’ll try for 9:00 Eastern when possible.

Nice idea Nikos. The power of prayer is always a good idea especially now with the upcoming election and mostly our brave Navy Seals.

I already pray, every day, through out the day for the USA, but I will set my alarm to pray specifically at 8 p.m. (Central).

Thanks for posting.

I too will join you. I also already pray every night specifically for the lawful and immediate removal of Obama from office, and I includea prayer for the removal of every Democrat and “Independent” Senator by name and as many Dem. Representatives as I can remember.
I have been praying for the removal of the Democrats for more than five years.
