Do you believe that God is sovereign over the world? Do you believe He has conquered evil and is at work to bring people to himself through the trials and tribulations that we all experience? Do you want to be a part of His work in the world? Do you want to make a difference? Then, this is the book for you.
Our world is faced with many serious and very disturbing problems. At times things do seem out of control, and they certainly are out of our control. However, the Bible teaches that nothing is outside of God’s control. However, our faith is often too small to grasp the enormity of what He is doing, and certainly our words fail us when we try to pray for issues that occur right around us. If we struggle with local issues, how can a person begin to pray for the desperate state of our world?
The struggle to pray for BIG things started for me when a godly woman named Pam Bendor-Samuel mentioned in a conference that she was trying to pray for big things and often found it hard. My thought at the time was, “You find it hard? I find it impossible!” And for many years, I did not even try to overcome this barrier. However, God has been continuing to use these words to challenge me to try, and so with the encouragement of several other godly women, we have begun together to pray for BIG things: war, terrorism, the seriously ill, our leaders, and more.
If during the US elections you want to join in prayers for them, I offer 7 prayers from Scripture. These same prayers can be used for church leaders, employers, any leaders. In His mercy, may God hear our prayers.
