Will You Decide?

I am linking up with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. This is a weekly challenge where you write on the weekly prompt for 5 minutes and link up on Kate's site.. Please make sure you visit the one who posted before you and leave a comment, or a word of encouragement. 

I really struggled with this weeks prompt for some reason. The word is DECIDE, and I was drawing a blank, until today. Today I finally decided what to write about! 

I came home from work and checked my mail. In my mailbox was my March newsletter from Franklin Graham on The Decision America Tour. I have been excited for this tour since they announced it sometime last year. I have joined the Ohio Decision America Prayer Group on Facebook, ( I believe there is a Facebook group for each state.) I have taken the pledge to God and My Country, and I will definitely be attending the rally when Mr. Graham visits our State Capital building in Ohio. 

I also have a Decision America Prayer Journal where I can write prayers and praises for each State as Mr. Graham goes to the Capital buildings and preaches the Gospel. The journal has information on each State and what we should be praying for as well. In Ohio, the prayer request is to Pray for a new generation of young Christians to rise up across the state as they hear the Gospel through every means possible. Ask God to use music, movies, social media, and the latest technology to reach children, teens, and young adults with the life-transforming message of Jesus Christ. 


"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.'" -Matthew 19:14 ESV


I totally agree with Mr. Graham when he says, "America is in trouble." What America needs is a spiritual revolution. It will only happen if we turn to God. As Christians we need to stand together and ask God to intervene in this country, to forgive us and to give us another chance. 

Turn us back to You, O Lord, and we will be restored. Lamentations 5:21 - NKJV

Mr. Graham reports that so far, over 1,400 people have prayed to accept Christ as their Savior! How exciting is that? 


Friends, if you have not already done so, I would love for you to decide to join Mr. Graham in praying for our Country, and spreading the Good News! You can find more information on your State and sign the pledge here.



Also, if you have never linked up with Kate, try it today! You will be glad you did!

    1. Thank you for visiting Jena! I am so glad you were inspired. I am looking forward to this week's prompt as well. Hopefully I will not struggle as much. I guess God knew what I needed to write about, and I just had to wait. ☺ Have a great weekend!

    2. I was able to get this week's prompt down, now just need to get a blog post done! Wanted to let you know I shared this pledge and event with my pastor, and he has actually been talking with them and plans to encourage our church to participate also! Again, so glad to have learned it from here and wanted to let you know we will be pledging and participating here in Washington State! :)

    1. Thank You Shannan! I am so glad I decided to write about it. Like I said, I really struggled with the prompt, and suddenly that day it hit me when I got my mail. I am sure that was a God thing! :) I truly believe that Mr. Graham can get through to the people of this Country about how desperately we need to bring God back into America! <3 I only live about 45 to 60 minutes away from the Capital Building, so I will be there for sure!
