Keep praying for America!

J. Lee Grady writes a weekly column for Charisma News which is usually very challenging. This week was no exception: Lee answers the problem of "Christian defeatism" by pointing us to signs of life and awakening in the American Church. Isn't the biggest problem we face a failure to persist in prayer? Grady shares a bit on some recent prayer efforts, then gently chides us:

Have you grown weary in praying for the nation? Have the negativity of news reports, the continual violence in Iraq or the cynical mood of so many Americans caused you to doubt that God is working?

Thousands of Christians were involved in intensive prayer campaigns during early 2006, including a 40-day effort during the spring and the massive Global Day of Prayer on June 4. This kind of collective intercession may not get the attention of the media, but we can be assured that heaven has noticed. The prayers of God’s people are collecting like water in a reservoir—and we are heading for a dramatic tipping point when those prayers will unleash unprecedented blessings—as well as judgment on our unseen spiritual enemies.

God’s Word promises us that He will heal our land if we humble ourselves and pray. I believe a spiritual dam has broken. The floodgates have been opened. We can pray together: “Lord, let it rain.”

Let's do it!
