Former SBC President Ronnie Floyd on How Christians Can Pray for America In This Historic Moment
We are living history. The election of a new president and the transition of power in this nation are always historic. Both the House and the Senate have proven veterans and newly elected leaders. This is historic.
At this time in history, how do we pray for America? Last week, I spent two days in Washington, DC. I attended meaningful meetings and heard convictional, dynamic, elected leaders speak and converse with us about the future of America. Again, we are living history.
Beyond the political pundits and talk show hosts, beyond the rising challenges of violence and danger in our nation, we have God. Yes, we are one nation under God!
I want to tell you how I am praying for America daily. In fact, not only am I praying daily, but thousands of members in the church I pastor are praying with me each week in their time of prayer with our church.
Call out to God for the United States of America
The Scripture Text We Are Praying Daily:
Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and incomprehensible things you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3
With confidence in the authority of Scripture and a deep belief in the power of prayer, we stand on the words of Jeremiah 33:3.
7 Things We Are Praying for America
1. Father, we cry out to You alone: Give America a nationwide spiritual awakening, resulting in millions coming to Christ.
2. Father, we cry out to You alone: Wake up and revive Your Church in America, beginning with waking up and reviving our church.
3. Our God, we cry out to You for a safe and orderly transition of power between the administrations of President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump. Lord, please protect President Obama and his family, Vice President Biden and his family, President-elect Trump and his family, and Vice President-elect Pence and his family in these days of transition and in the future.
