Patriot Praying or Kingdom Praying
Recently, I came across an article in the Connector, published by Intercessors for America. It was titled ‘A Warning from Macedonia’. Some of you, who have are on the Intercessors for America mailing list, may have seen it.
It raises an interesting question—are we trying to view control—possibly by encouraging adherence to our particular belief by a political candidate or party as the answer to our problems? That involves the thinking, that the solution we think is best—is what God wants.
There is a lot to think about in that statement. –Maybe we are asking God to fix our problems—when we should be asking for God’s presence and power to be demonstrated in the church. -- The real question here is does God just want to fix our problems—or does he want us to know Him?
Our country has great division in it. We are a people that may be too diverse in our thinking for our own good. The result of such thinking that does not focus on getting to know the Lord Jesus. What would happen if we were to focus on asking for God’s presence?
Rather than offer suggestions—I would like to open this discussion up to others. It you have experience the Lord’s presence—what change has it brought?
Maybe you differ with the focus that we should invite the presence of God. Tell us why.
Finally-what does it take to replace nationalistic type praying with God’s Kingdom Perspective.
