Seeking God in September

Tue, Sep 1 -  Wed, Sep 30, 2020

Join fellow Christians across America in praying for our nation every day in September. Given the weak spiritual condition of our country, Christians need to band together in united and desperate prayer. We must humble ourselves, repent of our sins, and turn to God.

It’s time for Christians across the land to focus prayers on three key needs:

1. Christian Repentance - Pray that we as Christians would recognize the ways we have been unfaithful to God, that we would grieve over our sins, and that we would turn back to God with all our heart.

National Healing - Pray that God would unite all Christians in humility and  mend our broken country.

3. Fearless Faith - Pray that we as Christians would stand for Christ and His truth against the threats and false ways of the world.  

1 John 3:22 says, “And whatever we ask we receive from [God], because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.” Could it be that we as a nation have not received the blessings of God in recent months and years because we have failed miserably to keep His commandments and do what pleases Him?

Please sign up below to participate. As a participant, you will receive a special devotional by email each morning in September, offering encouragement and prayer guidance as you seek the Lord.

May God hear our desperate cries, draw near to us, and answer our prayers.

Fasting Resources

Throughout Scripture, we see examples of fasting accompanying and giving urgency to the desperate prayers of faithful men and women. Some participants of "Seeking God in September" may choose to not just pray, but also fast during the month as part of their commitment. American Christians are often unfamiliar with the practice even though fasting was common for Christians through the centuries and is regularly done in the international Church.

God's Next Move in America

America’s Christian heritage is among the greatest of all the nations in the world. God’s Kingdom has thrived here through the 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s, largely due to nationwide moves of God’s Spirit. We need another history-making move of God. By His sovereign grace, God ensures that we play a part in Heaven’s work. He draws near to us when we draw near to Him (James 4:8). We must ask, seek, and knock for an outpouring of His Spirit (Luke 11:5-13).

“Whenever God is about to do something truly great,
He first sets His people praying!” Matthew Henry, 1662-1714
