Sense of Urgency
The sense of urgency I feel is hard to put in words. I have prayed and wept much over the condition of our nation, and continue to be deeply burdened. We are so close to the precipice of a complete self-destruction—a devastation of such magnitude that it would take decades to recover. Some believe a complete recovery would never be possible. The America we have known and loved is being systematically dismantled and reshaped.
“Again, if the trumpet sounds a muffled call, who will prepare for battle?” (1 Corinthians 14:8; NASB)
“Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.” (Acts 3:19-21; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Repent on behalf of the nation for choosing a selfish, sinful path instead of the one God would desire for us.
Ask the Lord to create an urgency within you to pray as never before and to get as many as possible out to pray and vote.
This is not a time to be silent, but a time to make noise! Tell the Lord out loud that you do not want America to fall, but to rise again into the calling He created the USA for!
A prayer you can pray:
Father, stir up within me an urgency and a cry that You will hear. I repent on behalf of my nation, the United States of America, because, Lord, our hearts are hardened against You. Even those in the Church sin against You and think nothing of it. We have leaders that spit in Your face by their actions and the laws they pass! I am undone with grief and don’t know what to do, except to pray with great passion and to open my mouth and tell my family, friends and neighbors that something has to change! Please act on our behalf, Jesus! Restore! Amen.
The Lord will cause me to be as a trumpet proclaiming the urgency of the times and the need for a Divine shift in this nation—a shift to make God first!
