I believe that our nation is at her greatest crossroads…
Billy Graham died on February 21, 2018. On October 2014 he gave the following interview: In this interview he shared about his concerns and solution about America. Here is what he said:
“America was “founded by men who believed in prayer” and that prayer can turn “the tide of history,” “America is just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah” and deserves “the judgment of God,” this judgment can be lessened through prayer.“ Even though America is just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah ever were, and as deserving of the judgment of God, God would spare us if we were earnestly praying, with hearts that had been cleansed and washed by the blood of Christ,” “The problems of the world will never be settled unless our national leaders go to God in prayer,” “If only they would discover the power and wisdom that there is in reliance upon God, we could soon see the solution to the grave problems that face the world!” “Our nation was founded by men who believed in prayer,” and notes that Benjamin Franklin, in addressing the 1787 Constitutional Convention, said that “God governs in the affairs of men.” “Today the world is being carried on a rushing torrent of history that is sweeping out of control,” “There is but one power available to redeem the course of events, and that is the power of prayer by God-fearing, Christ-believing people.” He continued, “One of the reasons the United Nations has become so ineffective in handling world situations is that there is no prayer, no recognition of God. Unless the leaders of nations turn to God in prayer, their best plans will fail, just as did the plans of those who built the tower of Babel.” Rev. Graham then noted numerous instances from the Bible where people “turned the tide of history by prayer.” For example, he notes, Elisha prayed and a young man was raised from the dead; Jesus prayed and Lazarus rose from the dead; the thief on the cross next to Jesus prayed and Jesus told him he would go to – paradise that day; John Wesley prayed and religious fervor grew in England, and the same happened with Johnathan Edwards in Northampton.”
As your pastor, I see that the real answer is prayer. The Church needs to pray. The problems of our nation can be laid at the doorsteps of the church because we do not kneel to pray and stand up against immorality and wickedness. 2 Chronicles 7: 14 is still the remedy.
It has been a busy weekend for your Pastor. On Friday night I spoke to the Ranch House School of Church Planting. On Saturday morning I led out in two Breakout Sessions : “Starting a Country Church.” Today, I am at my annual visit to the Corsicana Cowboy Church. In the past 10 years of the life of this church, I have been invited annually to preach at this great church. I was part of the team that helped in the start of this church. This church, their pastor and I have a special bond. Please keep me in your prayers. Thanks, Jeff, for leading us in in the Prayer Conference Today. The “21 Days of Breakthrough Prayer” has meant so much to me. This book study has encouraged me to be more energized in my prayer life. Next Sunday the title of my sermon from Daniel 5 is, “America, “The Handwriting is on the Wall!” –
Love you folks! Pastor Charles
