Presidential Prayer Team Update

Dear Prayer Member,

Today’s political climate seems to be in such turmoil and distrust. Our government and our country are facing deep conflicts over healthcare, wars, debt and unemployment. For those without faith, there would seem to be little hope and no end to the turmoil.

It’s in these difficult times though, that God’s people can shine the brightest and have the greatest impact. We know that the night is always at its darkest and coldest just before sunrise. Each morning the sun rises as a symbol of God's unending faithfulness. Just when things appear to be at their worst, God shows us his handiwork. In these dark times, we must continue in prayer and faithfulness that God is at work and that the morning is just around the corner.

It is our firm belief that God hears our prayers and comforts us in the darkest times, reminding us of His promises and assuring us of the coming light. Through prayer, God can encourage us and enable us to be a blessing to others. It is our hope that you will join us in prayer and expectation as we lift up our leaders, our nation and our military to the One through whom all things are possible.

Don't forget about our Prayer Wall! Join the thousands who have already used it as a tool of their ministry to the nation.
