Many of us have noticed the purposeful attempts to eliminate God in America through our schools, media, entertainment, far-left social engineering, and politics.
What a privilege it is to worship God for creating our great nation.
We thank Him for placing good Christian leaders as the founders of our country, for seating honest judges, and for fostering fair laws.
Christians should pray each day.
It’s only through the acceptance of The Cross, all that Jesus suffered pertaining to His death and resurrection, and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, that Americans and all peoples can experience a personal relationship with our Father.
That’s important news for Americans to remember right now, since many citizens during this current political climate are having trouble seeing the presence of God.
If that’s you, if you’re a believer in Christ yet currently doubt God still resides in our nation’s capitol, perhaps it’s time to step-up your prayer routine.
Prayer is our connection to God.
Developing a personal relationship with God, just like developing human relationships, depends on getting to know Him.
To develop and then sustain our end of this “love” relationship with God, one needs to take time to be in His presence. Speak to Him. Not only present our wants and desires for God to be in Washington, D.C. but also to worship and thank Him for all that He’s already done.
Despite deceitful government mandates, prayer can be done anywhere; while driving your car, waiting to pay for groceries, as you relax on the porch, before you get into bed or before you get out of bed.
Actually, God’s preference is for us to pray during all of these times. He loves us that much and wants to hear from us all day long. God enjoys us.
Prayer has no topic limits. We can come before God with family drama, work related problems, health scares, sexual issues, even governmental failings.
Though God already knows the trials America is navigating and any prosperity we may be enjoying–He still wants to hear from us.
He desires that we share all aspects of our lives with Him in prayer because He wants us to depend on Him.
God wants us to realize–to trust–that He is forever and always available and never forsakes those who call upon Him.
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Prayer is a vital part of our relationship with God. It keeps us close to Him. Truth is the more one prays the closer one becomes to God. The relationship deepens.
Is America straying away from God?
Perhaps we are experiencing governmental failings because more of our citizens are neglecting to pray for our government.
Perhaps we’ve become so caught up in our own “failings” we’ve only been praying for ourselves.
Or perhaps we’ve drifted from good prayer practice altogether?
Remember the story in the Bible of the church praying for Peter to get out of prison? Their prayers worked!
Prayer is powerful–prayer overcomes, prayer sets free and revives. Prayer is our conduit to Jesus for redemption.
Billy Graham said. “We can change the course of events if we go to our knees in believing prayer.”
There is a great site that can help you get started. It is ifapray.org. It is intercessors for America. It has good articles, prayer resources and connections to other people that are praying in your state.

The evil wants to annihilate us. God wants to give us life, and have it more abundantly. I’d say there’s no contest. Pray, be honest, He’ll listen.
