This morning I nearly overslept after three days of waking up during the 3 to 4 AM watch of the night. Now I’m home after full day of wonderful conversation and prayer with dear friends. Consequently, the writing for today has not been done. I heard the Lord say keep it short. I’ll try!
My first friend of the morning shared her burden for America and the direction our country is going.
She asked, “How do you pray our country?”
I had taken her a photograph of women praying. In the wide border surrounding the photo I had written out the Possibility Prayer.
As we conversed, I sensed the answer to her question was to strike the hard ground of unbelief with the Possibility Prayer. Here it is again:
Mind! Awaken to Possibility!
Heart! Arise in Expectancy!
Soul! Rest in Tranquility!
Strength! Be Anchored in Humility!
Just as you can pray this prayer for yourself or your friend, you can pray it for a country. You may respond back that this is a prayer for those who believe in Jesus and love others. America doesn’t seem to believe in Jesus anymore.
I could respond back, “Yes, that seems true. However, this country was founded on a covenant relationship with the God of Bible. Do the research. You will find it. America has fallen asleep to her God. It is time for her to awaken to possibility.”
You see, to people in our culture, the problems we face seem insurmountable, but with God–all things are possible.
Muddle that around in your mind for the next 24 hours! Post that on your frig!
Do you know this God? This God for whom impossibility is impossible? This God who boldly proclaims in his book, “With God, nothing is impossible.” Check it out in Luke 1:37 and Matthew 19:26.
Get to know this God. You’ll like him. He’s amazing!
