Our theme for 2013 is Pray for America, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men.  To further highlight our theme, we've chosen Matthew 12:21 as our Scripture for this year:  "In His name the nations will put their hope.

ARTICLEThe Power of Intercessory Prayer

 

John Bornchein

Our goal through prayer must be to know God better, to experience the fullness of relationship with Him. If we are to model ourselves after Christ, we must be willing to give ourselves to prayer and fasting.

In his book, Prayer on Fire, Fred Hartley describes prayer as, "What we do. It is our initiative to meet God, whether we are asking for favors, singing in celebration, or crying out in distress. Regardless of what shape or size it comes in, prayer is our effort to engage God." It can take many forms, including worship, confession, thanksgiving, praise, petition, waiting (silent listening), and warfare. And, the power of our relationship with God matures as we experience concentrated, prayerful devotion to others and their wellbeing. It is known as Intercessory Prayer when we spend focused time petitioning the Father for the needs of others. It may not come as a surprise to you, but the concept of Intercession is mentioned more than 80 times in Scripture. The Hebrew word for "intercession" is paga, which means "to light upon." The Greek equivalent, entygchano, refers to conversation with a king that involves supplication and intercession on behalf of another person. And, one of my favorites is the Greek word paracletos, which, when translated, refers to "one who pleads another's cause before a judge" and is most closely linked to the idea of intercession as we understand it today...

LISA CRUMP

Each year, millions of people unite on the National Day of Prayer - at thousands of events around the country - to pray! While prayer is not a seasonal or annual thing, our nation pauses to observe a National Day of Prayer on the first Thursday every May. On this day, Christians have an opportunity to emphasize the importance of prayer as a testimony to who God is, what we believe, and the fact that our Nation was founded upon the truths of God's Word, and much prayer!

Our volunteer network is made up of extremely dedicated men and women who love Jesus Christ and have a heartfelt belief that prayer is the hope for America.  Through their tireless efforts, a covering of intercession blankets our country - a "prayer shield" that is vital at this critical juncture in our nation's history. This network of volunteers, combined with our resources and online tools, will help guide you through the process of engaging your community in prayer!

Truman's annual ay of prayer, America's leaders had a tradition of faith, especially during crises.
