A Call to Prayer for our Country!

Today

Rev. Franklin Graham

  • We need to pray for PEACE, because “the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God” (James 1:20).
  • Pray for PERSPECTIVE, because “the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere” (James 3:17).
  • Pray for PATIENCE, because of God’s “kindness and forbearance and patience” toward us all (Romans 2:4).
  • And pray for an OUTPOURING of His wisdom and direction for our leaders and officials who are dealing with this crisis. Ask God to change hearts and heal this divide in our nation.
  • We need to pray for PEACE, because “the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God” (James 1:20).
