GH15 is joining in a national call to prayer before the 2016 Elections:

As One – A National Appeal to Heaven 40 Days of Prayer Walking the Nation

Here is Today’s Focus:

Liberty and Freedom

(Issues of Human Rights and Individual Freedoms)

One of the most important of the “seven spheres of influence” involves government and politics. People around the world are willing to lay down their lives for the freedoms expressed in the United States’ Declaration of Independence in 1776: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Pray that we, as Americans, do not forget that the freedoms and liberties we experience are gifts from God that can be lost if we turn our backs on Him. Pray that God will intervene in America’s national and local governments in ways that promote individual freedoms. Pray that more devoted, righteous people will seek and be elected to public office, thus helping provide a moral compass for their communities and nations, for where there is no vision, the people perish (Proverbs 28:18).

Today’s Passage:

Romans 8:19-21

“For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.”
