During those times when it seems that evil & tragedy are more widespread than ever before, it is important to remember that there IS MORE. As Christians, we know the outcome of the battle between good & evil. As Christians, we know our final destination is greater than any tragedy or suffering we can experience on earth — that is because Christ wins the battle against evil. Christ calls us to complete & everlasting union with Himself & our Heavenly Father, in union with the Holy Spirit.
As Christians, we know the power of prayer. We know the power of hope in our final destination – union with God… As Christians we know the power of Christ!
Psalms 39:8And now, Lord, for what do I wait? You are my only hope.
Romans 8:28And we know that all things work together for good of them that love God, to those who called according to his purpose.
“Soldiers! Let us humble ourselves before the Lord, our God, asking through Christ, the forgiveness of our sins, beseeching the aid of the God of our forefathers in the defense of our homes and our liberties, thanking Him for His past blessings, and imploring their continuance upon our cause and our people.”
“Knowing that intercessory prayer is our mightiest weapon and the supreme call for all Christians today, I pleadingly urge our people everywhere to pray. Believing that prayer is the greatest contribution that our people can make in this critical hour, I humbly urge that we take time to pray – to really pray.”
“Let there be prayer at sunup, at noonday, at sundown, at midnight – all through the day. Let us pray for our children, our youth, our aged, our pastors, our homes. Let us pray for the churches.”
“Let us pray for ourselves, that we may not lose the word ‘concern’ out of our Christian vocabulary. Let us pray for our nation. Let us pray for those who have never known Jesus Christ and His redeeming love, for moral forces everywhere, for our national leaders. Let prayer be our passion. Let prayer be our practice.” General Robert E Lee, 1863
Let us pray!
