Like every patriotic American, I am saddened by the chaos, anger, and division in Washington. I am also outraged by the secular left's unending assault against the founding principles of our republic.
Just as evil are those in the media who have become deceivers and backbiters because they no longer report truth based on facts. Liberal journalists and news show anchors are no longer trustworthy because they are nothing more than mouthpieces for "fake news" outlets.
I agree with the Rev. Franklin Graham, who recently said:
Our nation seems to be unraveling in hatred. There are forces out to destroy our country and the freedoms we all love. I hope everyone reading this will stop and take a minute to pray for this country, for our leaders, and especially for our president.
This is a critical time for America. We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask the Lord to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide our nation and our president. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God.
We know that God hears and answers prayer. He can soften hearts and change minds. He is all-powerful and rules over the affairs of nations. The Bible instructs us to pray for those in authority, "that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior" (1 Timothy 2:2–3, NKJV).
Beginning right now, I'm asking you to join me in committing to pray daily for America and our president. I believe that our prayers are the most effective means of stopping the malicious cancer of hatred now spreading across our nation.
Would you please join us in prayer and tell others so we can have as many people as possible praying? Here are two things you can do that will make a difference:
2. Urge your church and pastor to begin a special prayer emphasis for President Trump and our nation.
