Healing a Divided Nation
[Beginning 9/25, and continuing through Election Day, November 3rd, GiveHim15 is joining forces with many other national prayer ministries in 40 Days of Prayer for America. Cindy Jacobs, President of Generals International, provides today’s prayer focus.]
The Word of God tells us, "God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them" (Gen. 1:27). Therefore, "put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony" (Col. 3:10-14).
It's time to amend and repair what is corrupt and to build the institutions of our government and society according to their God-ordained order and organization. To see our nation transformed, we must go beyond a mandate that only sees souls saved. We must work to see Christians grow in the Lord, and we must see the kingdom of God invading every sector of our society. God wants His Kingdom will to be done on earth through us! If a nation is transformed without being reformed, it will soon fall back into its original state of decay.
"There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28; NIV)
Points for Prayer (by, Cindy Jacobs):
"From one man he made all nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands" (Acts 17:26; NIV). "For we are all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body, whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free, and we were all given one Spirit to drink" (1 Corinthians 12:13; NIV). "But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going because the darkness has blinded them" (1 John 2:11; NIV). "A new command I give to you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you much love one another" (John 13:34; NIV).
A Prayer You Can Pray:
[There is power in the pure Word of God. We do not pray it enough. I believe the Word of God can heal the sick. I also believe His declared Word can heal our nation. Join me in decreeing the Word of God today. Proclaim each of the scriptures above. Decree them more than once until you are declaring them full of faith!]
God’s Kingdom Will to heal America will be accomplished through the intercession of His Ekklesia!
