A Letter to a Father on the National Day of Prayer


Today is the National Day of Prayer, and I urge you to pray not just to pray but to pray according to the word of God. The scripture that I would like to draw your attention to is 1 Timothy 2:1-2. “ I exhort, therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” Prayer is making a general request while supplication is making a specific request. When you pray today, pray with supplication pray for that specific thing or make that particular request concerning yourself and for all people. I also urge you to intercede for your fellow brother or sister. Pray that God will bring all people into the proper alignment and give thanks. I have a secret to share with you not only are we to pray for our family, friends and loved ones, but we are to also pray for our leaders and every person that is in authority over us. I know the current conditions of our nation are not the best, but I wonder what would happen if we would pray the way we should. I wonder what would happen if we prayed that our enemies would come into the proper alignment with God. I wonder if you believed that “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:16) My prayer for us today is that we become a nation that is truly under one God. Are you praying today?
