I was intrigued by the title, Praying for America.:40 Inspiring Stories and Prayers for Our Nation. by Dr. Robert Jeffress. The author was new to me, so I thought. After letting the book sit for a couple weeks. I just happen to have a conversation about another book laying across from it on my shelf. After talking to the other person I realized that I have listened to him on TBN.
Well, Praying for America, continued to stay on my shelf, until I started working on The National Day of Prayer event for my church and recording an episode for my podcast. That's when I picked it up. It was like Holy Spirit had been leading me to it and I wasn't listening just looking. Have that ever happened to you? Well I am so happy I picked it up an began reading. It was so interesting until I had to finish it.
Each chapter is packed with historical events that are evident in our culture today. It's written with words of encouragement to pray about different topics for America as they relate to religious freedom and our freedom of speech. Scriptures and a prayer are included in each chapter. It's an easy read in which the prayers can be implemented immediately.
Saints, life is running wild and downhill quickly. Believers are being persecuted left and right. Remember Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado? Well, after he won the supreme court case, another group is trying to do the same thing. When will it end? Saints, James 1:12 says, “Blessed is a man who perserveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” This is why we need to pray for one another and unbelievers. Dr. Jeffress, has many stories like this one.
I pray for bold Christians to rise up and courageously stand against the wiles of the devil without fear looking towards Christ Jesus our Savior. STop and start praying regularly, daily, interceding for others and your country. This book can help you get started.
