Prayer Resources to Help
Pray for the United States of America
Most believers realize that our nation is clearly in trouble. We have left our spiritual moorings to possibly catastrophic circumstances. Is there hope?
YES!! Second Chronicles 7:14 clearly puts the solution on our action: humble ourselves, turn from our wicked ways, seek God's face and pray. He will heal our land! Many Christian leaders believe if we would in unity humble ourselves and pray, we would see revival in the church and another spiritual awakening in our land.
This page provides information, resources and links to other like-minded ministries that can help you and your congregation learn to pray more effectively and passionately in these days. We encourage you to bookmark this page as we will regularly be adding resources as we find them.
