God shapes the world by prayer.
So said E.M. Bounds, the 19th Century Methodist circuit rider who left us quite a legacy in prayer.
I have been a fan of Bounds, and others like him, for decades. I return to his writings frequently. They inspire me and remind me of what really matters most in God’s Kingdom.
Friends, please forgive my bluntness, but if our country is going to avoid the impending judgment of God, it will only happen through prayer.
I’ve never known a time in my life where prayer–knee-bending, soul-ravaging, Spirit-flowing, food-depriving, sleep-denying prayer–has been more urgent or more necessary.
That is why I started a Twitter account (@PrayBIGNow) devoted entirely to prayer. I know it’s a very, very small thing. But if I can encourage you in your prayer life, then I’ve been successful.
Beyond that, it’ll do me good to do the work of mining such great content on prayer.
At @PrayBIGNow, you’ll find biblical promises on prayer, recommended readings on prayer and great statements about prayer from prayer leaders and intercessors throughout history. The statements are 140 characters of pure prayer inspiration.
I hope you will follow @PrayBIGNow, and retweet the content that inspires and encourages you. Please help me help others to keep their thoughts turned to God in prayer throughout the day. It’s what our country most desperately needs.
Now, let’s pray . . .
