If you are involved with the Pray and Act campaign, how's it going?
My daughter and I (and a number of our friends) have committed to the 40 days of prayer and fasting for the nation, using this Prayer Guide. Neither of us has ever been very successful at fasting, so we have been encouraged by how (relatively) easy a liquid-only fast has been. That's not to say that we haven't had our moments of temptation to eat, but as one pastor wrote, "I love food, but I love God and my country more."
I've heard others say that when they fast, they feel better physically, have more energy, and find that their minds are more focused during their times of prayer and throughout the day. I didn't believe them! Now, however, 22 days into the campaign, I'm learning that they are absolutely correct.
Our nation needs our prayers -- especially as we go into what may be a watershed election. If you haven't joined the campaign yet, it's not too late. We have 18 more days to go!
If you are involved already, please share your stories with us here so we can encourage one another to "run the race" well, by His power and for His glory.
