Praying for His will

battleWhen churches need to take a stand for truth, they’re often thrust into the limelight – not necessarily in a good way. Case in point, yesterday’s news that a local (Green Bay area) church cancelled a former Packer player’s speaking appearance after he tweeted his support for a gay athlete.  Did the church do the right thing?

Today is the National Day of Prayer, and many Christians are wondering, what should we be praying for?

    I'm not much the National Day of Prayer, a day that attemps to breakdown the walls of the nessesity of a genuine Faith in Christ as the Only means by which we may approach unto the LORD God, Almighty. A faith that is given as a gift by God Himself and brings about repentance unto salvation. So I see this even as an afront to God Almighty.

    There is one intercessor between God and man, the man who is God in the flesh the Lamb of God who was slain. The same is called in our tongue Christ Jesus, Jesus of Nazareth, who was born as a man, of the virgin who is called Mary. The same who is from everlasting to everlasting, the LORD Almighty, who also the Suffering Servant who was sent from Heaven and came into His creation to redeem it. It is by Faith in His shed blood which He poured out unto His death by which we gain access to the thrown room of God so we may enter into His presence and draw near to Him to present our petitions. For it is written none can come unto the Father but by me. So said the one who was bodily resurrected from the dead after three days and three nights which He himself established as the sign that what He Spoke was the very Word of God.

    What this day encourages is joining hands or prayers with any other who may or may not acknowledge Christ as Lord, Who alone is our propitiation for our sins, for surely the Lord will see our sincerety and hear our prayers even though we approach Him as we see fit, instead of in the way He Himself has determined. That way is Christ and it is in humility, and submission to the righteousness of God in all sincereity, not just paying lip service. We proclaim our rebellion wrought in our wicked selfwill and desire Christ Jesus to work in us to do His will, that men will see our good conduct done in all meekness and humility and glorify God Who is in Heaven, not in order that we should appear approved but that we should fulfill the High Calling we have in Christ though we ourselves are reprobates so any good we do is a result of Christ work in us.

    So for the Christian there is not a day of prayer, every day is for prayer: continuously.

      Well said bro. The one thing that caught my eye was the 'national day of prayer'. It is ecumenical to the core and genuine Christians have no part in it for a start!
