"If My People Pray" Campaign, Sept 1-Oct 10

Heard on the radio today about a national prayer campaign that begins tomorrow. It is called the "If my people pray" campaign and it's really very simple:

1.)  God is holy and keeps any and all promises He makes.

2.)  God tells us, in 1 Chronicles 7:14: "If my people, who are called by my Name, humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear them from heaven and forgive them their sin and will heal their land." {God has kept this promise many times when the Jews had gone astray and then turned from their sin and called upon His Name.}

3.)  Our country {land} is... well... I don't think I need to say anything there... Let's just say we've certainly "missed the mark"...

4.)  If all believers fervently pray every day and turn to God in intercession for this country, then God WILL hear our prayer and heal our land and He WILL restore us to faith and bless us. {God CANNOT break His promises BECAUSE He is Holy!!!}

      There is no set "Agenda" or "Motive" for this campaign, except that we turn back to the LORD and that He blesses us with righteousness so that we, in turn, can bless others in His Name.

      There are 3 Steps described on the website {www.ifmypeopleprayusa.org}, but since there isn't a set agenda, you take however long within the 40 days that you need to make sure you get each step right.

      Step 1: Make a choice. Will you join the campaign, Yes or No?

      Step 2 {in short}: Humble yourself {accept/admit that you and we really NEED God}; Pray {let God search your heart}; Seek {desire to hear God speak and be willing to listen when He DOES}; Turn {follow God and turn your back on your sin and self-centered life}..... Take as long as you need to on Step 2 until your spirit is renewed and you feel a new sense of life and fire in your Heart that burns for God and holiness.

      Step 3: When your spirit is renewed, begin intercession for this country, for your neighbors, for your unsaved loved ones, for your saved loved ones, for our president and authority figures, for your pastors, for your enemies...

      Visit the website {If My People Pray USA} even if you are just stumbling on this blog post years from now... I know no one really reads this, but... who knows, maybe someone will and I hope that God has spoken to you through this post and that you follow the above 3 steps... Easier said than done, I know, but as Jesus says, "With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." {Matthew 19:26} Since God gave you free will, it is your choice, but you can choose to let Him use you in great ways, if that is your choice....
