God’s weapon of prayer

Beth and Ray Jones

Today Ray and I went to our town’s courthouse, and joined others to pray for our nation.¬† There was only a handful of people present, but I believe in my heart that God heard our prayers and will answer.¬† There were eight areas we specifically covered in prayer for our nation:

  • Government
  • Church
  • Military
  • Family
  • Health Care
  • Education
  • Media/Entertainment
  • Israel
  • Business

Eva Jantz, head of the National Day of Prayer committee, asked me to pray for the area of education, which I was honored to do.¬† To Ray’s surprise, she asked him to do the “Prayer for the nation” at the beginning of the meeting, because the man who was originally appointed to do this couldn’t make it today.¬† This prayer Ray gave ¬†is the responsive prayer given by Franklin Graham,¬†Honorary Chairman of the National Day of Prayer and President & CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.¬†

Remember that God hears your prayers. You are God’s weapon of prayer:¬† “He says, “You are My war-club, My weapon of war;¬†And with you I shatter nations,¬†And with you I destroy kingdoms.” (Jeremiah 51:20, NASB)

Below is a brief video clip of Rev. Curtis Townley –¬†head of the Missions department¬†for a Southern Baptist organization in the local area¬†– praying outside¬†the courthouse today. He was one of several people there from different churches, who¬†had our nation on their hearts and took their lunch hours to pray.
