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!
