Prayer For Our Nation — September 11th

As news networks begin to run coverage of the attacks on our country on September 11, 2001, we remember vividly every moment of that day.  Our nation was in shock, and for one brief moment, humbled.  We needed God, His presence and His comfort that day. Most adults realized that America changed forever that day, but little did we realize how drastically our whole way of life would change. Our cry for God’s protection quickly turned to a cry for the government to protect us. One of the most evident changes seen is how distrustful we have become as a nation, particularly of one’s motives.  Once you exchange the truth of God for a lie, which is what we have done in placing our trust in government to keep us safe, and to provide for us, then you have no basis for love.  Love and trust come from God; they are not natural characteristics in humanity.  Humanity without God says, “Meet my needs,” a survival of the fittest mentality.  These seeds have been planted in our culture for decades. The attacks of September 11 acted as fertilizer, in the form of fear, on those seeds. Now, in September 2013, we are at each other’s throats demanding no one offend or betray us.  When we are offended or feel betrayed, we conclude it was intentional. There is only one way to turn this around, and that is to adopt the love and trust that comes from God alone. Will you join us this week as we pray for the needs of our nation? Pray for spiritual hunger and a renewed desire for the things of God in the people of God.  Pray that the empowered people of God and the empty people of the world would begin to cross paths and hearts would be open and willing to hear the gospel. “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:14-16
