This is a call for Christians everywhere to join together in prayer. I believe we must pray with an urgency perhaps like we have never had before. The Bible tells me that the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16b)       

Prayer is our power. The 'church', in general, has become powerless. Our nation's godless leaders have no fear of the Christian getting in their way unless we pray. We may not have the 'numbers' but if we pray, we shall overcome the obstacles and prevail. IF WE PRAY!                                                                

If you don't know how to pray, find a prayer warrior. Learn from them and become a source of power for Jesus Christ.              

 I am thrilled to know that at least one other Church in town is also preaching prayer from the pulpit and I am hopefully sure that other Pastors are preaching this message also. Prayer doesn't know denomination boundaries. We all are called to pray. Gibson City needs us to pray. Ford County, Illinois, our nation, out President and ALL our leaders NEED us to pray, even as they fight to keep us from doing so.                    

I love my nation, but we need God. Would you join with me and pray.

They won't be church services but we will pass out greeting cards and sing Christmas carols ti the residents of both long term czare fascilities.
