    Fourty days of prayer for our nation

    At my church, the pastor has put into place a program of 40 days of prayer; the object of these 40 days of prayer is our nation and the election coming.

    For those that believe in the God (Judeo-Christian), or other gods, lets join together and pray for our nation from a mess.

    The theme of prayer for Christians is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14 (old testament), quoted below:

    " (If) My people who are called by My name (will) humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    It does not take a rocket scientist to understand our country is a mess... I believe we need divine intervention to heal our land.

    Please join with GA; pray every day for our country until the returns of the election the evening of Nov 5, 2012... 40 days of prayer.

    Please feel free to comment.

    Im not a Christian man, but I will join you in your prayer.
    To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.

    THX Cool, GA (for what GA's opinion is worth) accepts you regardless of your faith.

    This country is too valuable and wonderful to trash over faith... You and I can drink a few and debate our faith AFTER the country is on the right track again. Fair enough?

    So how did you extract this from the post ?

    All he said was that the country is in trouble and that people should join in prayer for the nations recovery.

    Certainly no bias in positive energy...is there?

    It would appear there may be... if a particular citizen's pet person (race, philosophy, handouts, etc) is questioned.

    In GA's maybe not so humble opinion; this is just a different example of crony politics...
    My guy takes care of me... is fine... however... If your guy gets in and takes care of you... that is wrong.
    Or to put it another way: It is OK for my guy to take care of me at your expense... however... If your guy gets in and makes it a level playing field (read that I do not get my advantage anymore)... that is wrong.

    Anyone not see the total dishonesty and hypocrisy in that?

    All you got is a prayer if you think that Romney is going to be the next POTUS.

    Pray on!!

    You will need a Miracle.

    Perhaps 40 days of fasting may also help.

    I kind of picked up the same message mcjo tech did. That's why I asked the question about whether it had anything to do with who should win the election but so far have gotten no response. Ironically the Republicans are the party favored by most Churches & yet the Democrats are the ones who are known for giving to the poor & tolerance towards other beliefs & life styles. I don't consider myself a Democrat by any stretch of the imagination but if I had to choose between the two parties I definitely would not choose Republican.

    When tolerance becomes a one way street, it leads to cultural suicide.
