The Power of Prayer

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 heal their land.

There are 36 days to Election Day 2012. This election is worth praying about. Quite a few other people think so, too, among them Eric Metaxas, author of the best-selling book Bonhoeffer. He has suggested the idea of 40 days of prayer prior to Election Day, commencing on September 27, 2012.

It's not too late to join in. Each of us is still free to choose his or her own way of praying for our country. But I think that all believers would agree that, if ever there was a time to pray for the United States, it is now.
