Thank you for joining me for Prayer in Every City Friday. This year I want to support Franklin Graham and our nation in prayer. Franklin Graham will be traveling to all 50 states to promote prayer on his Decision America Tour 2016, encourage Christians to run for office and vote. Every Friday, we will meet here to pray for the states he has visited that week or the weeks to come. If you have come to pray, then please leave you prayer request for the nation. These are not prayer requests for personal needs, but requests for our nation to turn back to God.
So far over 88,700 people have attended a Decision Tour Rally in 19 states with 31 more states to go. Franklin Graham visited Austin, TX with a record breaking crowd of over 8,100; Oklahoma City, OK with over 5,000 in attendance and Topeka, KS with over 4,300.
The next 3 stops will be Nashville, TN May 3rd; Frankfort, KY on May 4th and Charleston, WV on May 5th.
Please pray the following:
We praise You, LORD God the Almighty, the Alpha and Omega, who is, who was and who is to come.
- We pray, Father, You will forgive us in America for all the sexual sin in our nation. We are living as Sodom and Gomorrah, so please withhold your judgment a while longer. We humbly ask that You stir the hearts of the Christians in our churches to share the gospel message with every person we meet. Remind the church that there are two keys to revival. We must first of all pray for revival, but revival will not come unless genuine repentance is preached in our pulpits.
- We praise You that the state of Tennessee has 49% in weekly church attendance. We pray for safety in this state because it is one of the five most violent states in the U.S and a leading producer of marijuana. **
- We praise You that most people in Kentucky identify themselves as Christian, but only 1/3 read the Bible, pray and attend church consistently. We pray for the people in this state addicted to painkillers, as Kentucky has the 3rd highest deaths due to drug overdose. **
- We praise You that 61% of West Virginians reported church attendance in the past 6 months. We pray for those looking for work as WV has the highest unemployment rate in America.**
- As we read the news headlines, we are heartbroken over the state of our nation. We humble ourselves before You, because we have no one to blame but ourselves. Please revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You. (Psalm 85:6).
