Unless leaders turn to prayer, plans will fail

As we hear the alert of an attack from North Korea on the national TV news, the sound of the alarm in Joel 2:1, 13 says it is close at hand. In history, our nation’s leaders carried their plans to God in prayer. But today, we have regarded prayer in our national life simply as a tradition. We simply use prayer as a formality.

America was born in a meeting based on prayer — decisions were made after careful prayers to God — we must renew and rebuild. Unless leaders of nations turn to God in prayer, plans will fail. Luke 11: 1, “Lord, teach us to pray.” We are called to humble ourselves and pray.
