National Day Of Prayer

Dear Editor,

We members of the Tuesday morning prayer group wish to thank all who participated in our National Day of Prayer get-together: those who led in singing, those who led in praying, and the ROTC for performing their flag-folding ceremony and of course all those who came to pray and intercede for God’s mercy and His turning our hearts back to Him.

Our nation is in deep trouble in every area – economically, educationally, morally. The answer is not politicians nor Washington. God Himself gives the answer:

“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 and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)


“Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things (material needs) will be given as well.” (Matthew 6:33)

Our founding fathers understood these truths and based our nation upon them. As our foundation of acknowledging God has been chiseled away over the past 50 years, we have sunk lower and lower both as a nation and as a society. Is this really the direction we want to continue in?

God has given us the answer. Praying is not just for one day but for every day. He is waiting and will answer when we call:

“Call to Me and I will answer you.” (Jeremiah 33:3)

While "Sunshine Week" doesn't necessarily refer to the weather for us journalists, the sun has coincidentally come out in force this past week. How does the return of the sunshine strike you?
