If revival can come to a wicked city like Nineveh by the preaching of God’s word by Jonah, then there is hope for our nation.
In some states, same sex marriage was approved. The followers of Jesus Christ can still make a difference in our country going forward. Christians in America especially need to pray for all those in authority. God desires that prayers intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people, that we may live peaceful and quite lives in all Godliness and holiness (1 Timothy 2:12).
I don’t think our nation can experience God’s hand of favor if we continue to turn our back on him. I do believe praying Christians who take a bold stand for Christ can help stem the rising tide of Godlessness in our nation.
Because God is slow to anger and merciful to sinners, it is important that we do all we can to bring the message of repentance of sins and forgiveness through Christ to as many people as we can. We need to pray diligently for the lost, for revival in our own hearts and in churches and for a turning of our nation to God.
Nineveh repented at the preaching of God’s word and what happens in Nineveh can happen in America today.
Starting right now, every great effort begins with prayer is sustained with prayer and ends with prayer. Make a list of unsaved friends and family. Then begin praying regularly for their salvation. America needs the Gospel. The farther we drift from God, the more things fall apart. People seek answers to our problems. Many never visit a church to hear about God and his love. We need to bring the love and hope of Jesus Christ into their troubled lives.
