Today is the National Day of Prayer, and I want to encourage you by sharing this message my husband Chris sent out to our church:
* * *
Let's join millions of brothers and sisters in our nation and around the world praying directly to God
Let's pray for ...
Lord, let it begin in me.
At a time our country is divided, it's time for the church to be united.

Who can I share Jesus with today?
“Every great movement of God can be traced to a kneeling figure.” D.L. Moody
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV) - 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

I also want to pray Eph. 3:14-21 (NIV) for the people of our nation:
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
I encourage you to take a minute and pray these things yourself. The Lord hears each prayer, and things change...revival breaks, division dissolves, hearts are awakened, and love is understood in a deeper way.
God bless you!
