Power in Prayer

Devoting a day to prayer is a deeply-rooted American tradition. Pilgrim and Puritan leaders often designated days of prayer. During the Revolutionary War, our Founders asked Americans to pray for their new nation. Today, we celebrate the 60th annual National Day of Prayer in America.
Does prayer really work? The power of prayer is proclaimed repeatedly in the Bible.

"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." 2 Chronicles 7:14

"Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven." Matthew 18:19

"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you." John 15:7

History itself is deluged with evidence that prayer works. When godly people recognize a need and turn to God, miraculous things happen, for nothing is impossible with God!
America is in dire need right now. Today - this week - anytime, take some time to pray for our country. We grasp the handle to the most powerful tool on earth. Let's put it into action.

Below is a fantastic video by Christian music artist Carman - a video perfectly suited for today. I encourage you to watch it!
