Emergency Prayer


UPDATE! More Governor’s Proclaim Call For Prayer This Sunday

Gulf Oil Fire

67 days into the Gulf oil spill crisis, four affected State Governors have now issued proclamations declaring this Sunday, June 27th as A Day Of Prayer.  As recently reported here, Texas Governor Rick Perry is one of the Gulf Coast Governors to issue an appeal to make Sunday a day of prayer.

Perry stated-" It seems right and fitting that the people of Texas should join with their fellow Gulf Coast residents and others across the country and around the world to thank God, seek his wisdom for ourselves and our leaders, and ask him for his merciful intervention and healing in this time of crisis."

Alabama Governor Bob Riley said-"Throughout our history, Alabamians have humbly turned to God to ask for His blessings and to hold us steady during times of struggle. This is certainly one of those times."

Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour wrote-" Prayer allows us the opportunity to reflect and seek guidance, strength, comfort and inspiration from Almighty God and citizens of Mississippi are urged to pray….."

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal declared-"June 27th as a Statewide Day of Prayer for perseverance "

MY prayer agrees with each of these AND that our Government will not politicize this tragedy nor nationalize this industry. May God give supernatural wisdom and strategy to those working to repair and to restore.  May God pour His love and grace upon the families who have lost loved ones. May our nation re-awaken to God’s love revealed through His Son Jesus Christ and to His righteousness and justice revealed through His Word, the Christian Scriptures.   

"I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men."Benjamin Franklin

May the "leak" be repaired, economic freedom preserved, the environment restored, families healed and nations unified through this in spite of its horrific scope.  May Church and State agree that we need a miracle !  

From The Examiner:

How do we pray?  FOR HIS MERCY

God, I’ve heard what our ancestors say about you,
   and I’m stopped in my tracks, down on my knees.
Do among us what you did among them.
   Work among us as you worked among them.
And as you bring judgment, as you surely must,
   remember mercy.  Hab 3:2 Message Bible
