Election 2012: Who Will Best Preserve Our Freedoms?

 ONE MINUTE EVERY NIGHT This is the most uncertain election we as Christians have ever faced, and from the looks of the polls, the Christians aren't voting Christian values. We all need to be on our knees. Do you believe we can take God at His word? Call upon His name, then stand back and watch His wonders unfold? This scriptures gives us, as Christians, stewardship of this land and the ability to call upon God to heal it. We have never been more desperate than now for God to heal our land. 2 Chronicles 7:14: "If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." During WWII there was an adviser to Churchill, who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every night at a prescribed hour for one minute, to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people and peace. This had an amazing effect, as bombing stopped. There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America. The United States of America, and our citizens, need prayer more than ever! If you would like to participate, each evening at 9 PM Eastern Time (8 PM Central, 7 PM Mountain, 6 PM Pacific), stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, for peace in the world, the upcoming election, that the Bible will remain the basis for the laws governing our land and that Christianity will strengthen in the United States. Someone said if people really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be humbled. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.
