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 103,100 people have attended a Decision Tour Rally in 31 states with 19 more states to go. Franklin Graham visited Nashville, TN with a record breaking crowd of over 8,600; Frankfort, KY with over 5,800 in attendance and Charleston, WV with over 4,200.
The next 2 stops will be Jefferson City, MO May 17 and Lincoln, NE on May 18th.
Please pray the following:
We praise You, LORD God the Almighty, the Alpha and Omega, who is, who was and who is to come.
- Lord, we are shocked by the announcement made by the Obama Administration this morning over transgender restrooms in public schools. Please forgive us in this nation because we call evil good and good evil. Please forgive us as Christians for being silent for too long, while the enemy planted tares among the wheat. Please forgive us for electing ungodly men to stand as judges for our nation. We deserve judgment as Sodom and Gomorrah, but we wish to stand in the gap for our nation. You said You would not destroy Sodom and Gomorrah if 10 people were willing to take a stand. I pray Lord for the sake of those who love You and hate sin, that You will not destroy this nation. There are over 1 million who are taking a stand against this evil, so please have mercy on our nation.
- We praise You that 88% of Missouri residents profess to be Christians. We pray for the 40% of 18-25 year olds who reported binge alcohol use.**
- We pray for the state of Nebraska where 42% of the population ages 50-68 are unchurched. We also pray for forgiveness of Penn State for firing, Coach Ron Brown, a football coach who prayed on the 50 yard line. Please send revival to the Christians in Nebraska.**
- We also pray for the states of North Carolina and Texas as they begin to fight the U.S. government over bathroom rights. Thank you for the godly leaders who are willing to fight this battle, in spite of criticism and monetary loss. We pray that more states will join in this effort, because the local schools cannot afford to fight the battle. Most of us do not know how to fight this battle, but You have promised in Your Word that the battle is Yours. Lord, show us how to fight this battle.
- We pray that Christians will fight this battle on their knees. As Ms. Clara said in War Room, “Raise ’em up, Lord, Raise ’em up”.
We pray all these things in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen
