Unity (Liberty Counsel)

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

Today could be a turning point in our nation if American believers get engaged in prayer.

Today is the National Day of Prayer. The theme is UNITY, which our country desperately needs, as announced by Dr. Ronnie Floyd, President of the National Day of Prayer.

“Mobilizing unified public prayer for America may be the most important thing we can do right now.  America is broken. Division is undeniable. Racial tension is alarming. Lawlessness abounds. Reconciliation appears impossible. The National Day of Prayer in America is needed now more than ever before in our nation’s history.”

+ + Our nation is in desperate need of prayer.

The Bible says, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

It is fitting that unity is the focus of this year’s call to prayer. America is at a critical point in its spiraling decline and the differences in our citizens’ values have become both stark and profound.

“Life” has been supplanted by “choice.” Radical groups and political correctness have taken behaviors once called “sin” and elevated them to “equality.” I encourage you to join millions around the country asking for God’s help, wisdom for the future, forgiveness for our sins, and unity for our nation.

Today, I am honored to participate in the National Day of Prayer by leading a prayer for the judicial branch of government in Washington, D.C. Will you join me in a commitment to pray by adding your name to our “Pray for America” initiative, beginning today and continuing through the midterm elections?  Click here for details and to add your name.

+ + America was founded and built on prayer – and America can be restored by prayer.

When you get down to it, we live in the land of liberty because America was founded upon prayer!

Before the founding of our nation, there was a call to prayer in 1775. Our Founding Fathers asked for wisdom in establishing a fair government. Later they battled an almost insurmountable division. The large states wanted the legislature to represent the population and the small states wanted equal representation for each state. This conflict almost prevented our nation’s unity and very existence. It brought our Founding Fathers to their knees again, and the eventual compromise resulted in creating both the Senate and House.

It is fitting that this week—as our nation faces moral depravity, racial tensions, and political disagreements—that we come together once again on our knees and ask for unity.

The evidence is clear: We are engaged in a battle for the soul of America. We must turn the tide or our nation, as it was envisioned by the founding generation of patriots, will be forever lost.

We are calling on every friend of Liberty Counsel to commit to Pray for America now through the midterm elections. Click here for prayer points and to receive a complimentary copy of The Patriot’s Handbook on Intercessory Prayer for the United States.

+ + National Day of Prayer: A nationwide event!

This is the 35th annual National Day of Prayer. Liberty Counsel representatives are attending several of the events this week in Washington D.C. There are more than 35,000 organized events on Thursday, and several million people are expected to participate in small towns, cities, and state capitals across America.

This past Sunday, Greg Cox, Liberty Counsel’s Vice President of Constituency Affairs, kicked off the Bible Reading Marathon in front of the capitol building by reading from the German translation of the book of Genesis. Every minute of the day and night leading up to the National Day of Prayer, clergy and others will read the Scriptures in multiple languages in front of the U.S. Capitol.

One of Liberty Counsel’s many ministries, the Liberty Prayer Network, has participated in a continuous 24/7 prayer conference line since November 2016. This week’s focus is on the National Day of Prayer.

In order for our nation’s cultural, political, and moral foundations to regain their former vitality, we desperately need spiritual renewal!  We need to be on our knees – now – praying for a true revival among our country’s leaders and citizens.

Thank you and God bless you for your sincere commitment!

P.S. Without an intervention by God, America will soon be, as President Reagan warned, “a nation gone under.” Click here to join with us in prayer and to receive a complimentary copy of The Patriot’s Handbook on Intercessory Prayer for the United States.
