The streets in United State of America have been busy with protest over the death of George Floyd who was allegedly killed by a police officer.
Evangelist Franklin Graham urge believers and Christian leader to find time to pray for peace peace, perspective, patience, and an outpouring of His wisdom for the leaders handling this crisis.
His Facebook post reads: As Christians, the greatest weapon and the most powerful defense we have is prayer. Our country needs prayer in a critical way.
Tomorrow is Sunday, and I’m asking churches to have a special time of intercession for our nation in their Sunday morning services, whether in person or online. Will you pray, and will you share this with your pastor?
We need to pray for PEACE, because “the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God” (James 1:20).
Pray for PERSPECTIVE, because “the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere” (James 3:17).
Pray for PATIENCE, because of God’s “kindness and forbearance and patience” toward us all (Romans 2:4).
And pray for an OUTPOURING of His wisdom and direction for our leaders and officials who are dealing with this crisis. Ask God to change hearts and heal this divide in our nation.
Also the Franklin Graham’s sister, Anne Graham Lotz organized an hour prayer event themed “Turn to Jesus: Calling Women to Pray,”
Our nation is in desperate need of prayer right now. As Christians, it is our responsibility to use this powerful weapon against the adversity that our country is feeling.
