SUNDAY, July 5, 2015If 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. -2Chron. 7:14 BUT DOES PRAYER MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
The tragic after-effects of the war left our nation in a grave state. The nation was nearly bankrupt and the medical system could not deal with the diseases killing thousands. The national leaders were turning their back on God, European liberalism infected many of the churches which were now standing empty, and on college campuses Bibles were being burned!
Now, if this sounds like something you could have heard recently on a Christian news station, I understand. But the year was “1796”! Just 20 years after the birth of the nation, we were in peril of losing its life and certainly its soul.
SO WHAT HAPPENED?
God’s people began to pray! It was small at first but by the year 1801 a spiritual explosion took place for the next 50 years. “The Great Awakening” swept over America like wildfire, hundreds of denominations were born and thousands of churches. The modern mission movement was founded as well as tract and Bible societies, institutions of mercy, hospitals, orphanages, colleges and Bible schools. The impact on our nation and around the world was astounding and we still see the effect today!
YES, PRAYER CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY! If My People who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray!
Let's talk about it Sunday!
