A Challenge

A Challenge

As we watch hiccup after hiccup of our government from our wide-open borders, runaway government corruption, and out-of-control inflation, the situations seem insurmountable. These would be if it were not for one overwhelming factor. God. 

He tells us in Philippians 4:6,7, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Recently, I was reminded of a time several years ago when ladies gathered in my kitchen every week for the express purpose to pray for one another. One had a rebellions son. Another had an impossible marriage. A third had an unbelieving spouse. The scenarios seemed insurmountable at the time. 

We not only prayed for one another around that kitchen table. We also covenanted to pray every day at noon for the concerns of each woman. Since the hands on the clock were straight up, we put our hands together, straight up, in prayer. We called it PAN (Pray At Noon.)

Eventually, God resolved each seemingly-impossible situation. The rebellious son quit fighting God. Father God healed the broken marriage. The unbelieving spouse surrendered to the love of Jesus. 

I believe today, God is issuing a fresh call to His people to pray for the wrongs we see that need to be righted. Perhaps it’s time for another PAN. It’s not hard. We can set an alarm on our phones for noon. 

God has given us a promise. If we will do four things, He promises to do three. II Chronicles 7:14 says, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.”

God is true to His word. He doesn’t lie. Would you like to join me for even five minutes each day to pray to see Him move in our day and time, just like we read about in the Bible? Let’s set our phone alarms to appear in the throne room of Almighty God at noon.
