Oklahoma Senator James Lankford gave a speech recently (via the Faith and Freedom Coalition), to tell Americans that the work of rebuilding this country starts with the family. It will take Christians helping the Church to bring about change in America. The Church must again step up to her calling of helping the family, by doing what she does best—being the hands and feet of Jesus to our neighborhoods and communities. When the family is supported, the need for government help decreases. This will start to slowly turn the ship out of the storm and more toward where we want to go as a nation.
It starts with each of us praying and asking God to direct us. Perhaps this is the time when the whole county can pray together and commit to doing what it says in 2 Chronicles 7:14.
“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV
It continues with every Christian committing to vote this November, so that you don’t leave these important issues up to folks who don’t have your values.
