Let's pray for an uprising of Christians in line with Daniel 11:32-33.
Christians in America have good cause for concern. Our nation has been declining morally and spiritually over the past five decades, and there seems to be no end in sight. Secular agendas seem to be barrelling full steam ahead, erasing Christian values from our society one by one. But this is not a new predicament for the people of God. The Bible tells us what to do and how to pray in such challenging times.
But the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action. And the wise among the people shall make many understand. — Daniel 11:32-33
As modern American Christians, we have only been suffering the erosion of our faith for the last 50-60 years. In Daniel 11, approximately 300-400 years worth of distressing times are predicted for the Jewish people. Daniel learns that evil will increase more and more, so much that even the most precious elements of their faith, like the temple and its sacrifices will be desecrated and destroyed.
What should believers do in such times? Daniel 11:32-33 tells us plainly – stand firm, take action, and speak the truth.
Now is a time when it is vital that all of us who call on Jesus as Lord and Savior unite in these three convictions: to stand firm, take godly action, and speak the truth publicly. This is the mission of CU Day and Night. More importantly, this is the mission of God in seasons of challenge.
We must continue to intercede that there will be an uprising of American Christians who will no longer lay back and stay silent but will take our position to stand valiantly and steadfastly in the evil day. To this end, I also invite you to sign up today for 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting for 2021. Let's stay on offense as we seek God for His glory and kingdom here on earth as in Heaven.
Father in Heaven, thank You for Your word in Daniel that tells us that we need not fear or be dismayed in times of increasing evil. Now, we ask You in Jesus’ name, that You will send a surge of urgency and power into Your people in this nation. We ask You to forgive our sins that we have committed in our slothfulness. We ask You to revive and awaken us to stand firm, take action, and speak out for Your glory, and for the good of our fellow man. Amen.
With you in Christ,
