“If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
From the earliest days of the Second Continental Congress, our Founding Fathers made a practice of fasting and prayer for our land. In the first prayer offered for the Congress in 1774, Reverend Duche’ appealed to Almighty God to re-establish peace and harmony and for truth, justice, religion, and righteousness to spread through the nation.
We believe this is a critical time in Texas to fall on our knees in humility and ask for forgiveness and direction from our Heavenly Father. Our state legislators are divided and quarrelsome. The border is broken, and our power grid is shaky. Texas schools are in need of moral direction; a special session on school choice, possibly in October, will inevitably be contentious.
Will you join Concerned Women for America of Texas in praying for our state for the following?
- Humility and patience among our state leaders – that they would listen to and truly hear each other in the name of reconciliation.
- We know there are many Christ-followers among our state leaders. Let us pray that they will pursue effective conversations, listening (and actually hearing) each other’s perspectives. Pray that these Believers will be bold and steadfast in their faith, separating what is biblical from preferential and that they will search the Scriptures for guidance.
We need leaders to lead in obedience to the One who can and will make a difference for Texans. We believe that prayer moves the hand of God, and He wants to hear the cries of His people. Let us join together and pray for unity and peace for our great state of Texas.
