AMERICA WILL NOT FRAY IF AMERICA PRAYS!

I picked up a stack of mail and a magazine on top caught my attention. It was the current NRA issue and its cover was captivating. It posed the question: “Is America Fraying?” Fraying…meaning “to decompose, to become tattered and torn…when the edge of a piece of material is completely broken down and the border is no longer intact.” If clothing is frayed, its best days are past. But, when I looked at the cover my spiritual eyes saw the words: “Is America Praying?”
Are we praying…really praying? Hear the wisdom of Jeremiah the prophet today and apply it to ourselves and our nation.
Jeremiah 33:3 – “Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know (AKJV).”
Could it be that simple? That the God who created all things above and below the earth asks us to include Him in our daily equation? To call out to Him in prayer…to talk to Him…and allow…yes, allow Him to give us illumination and revelation on how to solve our problems. He wants to! He’s asking us to!
Jeremiah 32:17 – Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You (AKJV).”
There is no health care act, no homeland security issue, no international relationship, no civil discourse, no job insecurity, no financial dilemma, no family crisis…there is NOTHING that is too hard for God! The Church…the Ekklesia…set apart as the authority here on earth needs to hear again the wake-up call that we are abandoning our strongest tool if we do not use prayer to change our world. America will fray…if America does not pray!
We use 2 Chronicles 7:14 like a lucky charm to pull out in times of stress…in times of crisis…to pray in an election. But it is more. It is God’s directive by the Holy Spirit to quicken us…the Ekklesia…to our job description here on earth. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will heal their land 2 Chronicles 2:14 (AKJV).”
The Word of the Lord today, Beloved, is to pray! The reward will be GREAT! AMERICA WILL NOT FRAY IF AMERICA PRAYS!
