Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Today is the National Day of Prayer, and it promises to be unlike any other our nation has seen in recent memory. Though many events will be virtual, National Day of Prayer is shaping up to be the biggest event so far! Today, we come together with united hearts and prayers asking for our nation to be filled with the glory of the knowledge of God—this year’s theme for National Day of Prayer.
As Christians, we have everlasting hope in Christ, even when we are suffering and our nation experiences unique challenges. We have hope because God’s Word assures us all our present suffering is temporary and can’t be compared with the glory that will be revealed to us. God’s Word also charges us to continue to “press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14).
Family Policy Alliance® has leaned into God’s promises and continues to press forward in the mission to which He’s called our ministry. As we all join together in prayer today for our nation and our states, I would like to invite you to join us in praying for these four specific needs:
- Over the past couple months, the abortion industry has ramped up their efforts to push abortion-on-demand—even in the midst of COVID-19. They are also attempting to make “virtual abortions” (those where an abortion drug is prescribed over webcam) widely available. Family Policy Alliance has been on the front lines standing against the abortion lobby. Please join us in praying that life will prevail over death in America.
- We continue to hear from parents experiencing truly harmful (sometimes even pornographic) curriculum in their children’s schools. We work to equip these parents with their rights—and even to help them change the laws and regulations in their states or districts. Will you join us in praying for God’s hand of protection to be on children in America’s schools and strength for their parents to take appropriate action??
- Churches have willingly closed their doors—while still doing Kingdom work in many amazing ways—in order to help with efforts to stop COVID-19. Yet, in many places, churches have also been targets for religious discrimination in the midst of the hodgepodge of regulations surrounding states and cities. We have been informing and equipping churches so they can work with government bodies—and push back when government goes too far. Will you pray for America’s churches as they serve their communities with passion and grace—and as they take a stand for religious freedom when necessary?
- As the dust settles on COVID-19, America will head into a monumental event—Election 2020. Will you pray for God to call men and women who seek to serve Him first in their roles as lawmakers to run for office at the local, state and national levels? And will you pray that this election will make it possible for our laws to better protect life, help families thrive, and honor our God?
As you join millions of others tomorrow in prayer, know that Family Policy Alliance is joining in to pray for this nation—and for you.
For His glory,
