Prayers needed now more than ever
May 4, 2010 - Cheryl Clarke
Consider this a call to arms, prayer warriors. The National Day of Prayer is under attack. Last month a federal judge ruled that having a National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional because it violates the separation of church and state. See the attached news report from One News Now: http://www.onenewsnow.com/Legal/Default.aspx?id=975806 . After reading this news report, which was virtually ignored by the secular media, I felt I needed to blog about it. Thursday is what could be our last National Day of Prayer, unless we as Christians petition Heaven with one voice to intervene. The scripture says in 2Chronicles 7:14-16, that God will hear the prayers of His people, and will answer them, if they pray in humilty and turn from their evil ways. This verse has long been used as a rallying cry for people of faith to come together in times of national emergency, such as we are in now. It was so after the 9-11 attacks and it will be again, no doubt. Whatever you are doing Thursday at noon, please take time to attend the Wellsboro National Day of Prayer event on the Green at Noon, or if you know of another such event in your town or city, attend it, and join your voice with the voices of other believers to ask God for mercy. We need His grace now more than ever.
