A Message From David White to the Presidential Prayer Watch
(Includes a special word from Franklin Graham)
May 28, 2019
God bless each you!
As I am sure many of you are aware there is a sound of urgency in the air over our nation. I have received a number of warnings and words to increase the prayer covering over the president and our nation in recent days. One of these comes from Franklin Graham. I have included his message as a part of this email. Please pass his call to your pastor or the leaders you have contact with. I also want to remind you of the Night Watch this Friday, May 31st.
Personally I am not an "intercessor" as some would define that term, but I can call on God and I can fight in prayer and believe He hears and will answer, and so can you. As Franklin Graham and so many respected leaders believe, we really are standing at a precipice and the time is short.
In answer to prayer God is uncovering the deeds of darkness and what has been nothing less than treason against our nation committed by many within our borders. As you are aware, when the enemy and his plans begin to be exposed is when the danger level increases, and so must the covering of prayer.
The encouraging part is so much 'has' been exposed and brought to light. We are confident that what God has begun He will complete. However, just as there is the sovereignty of God there is also the responsibility of man. In this case it's the church in America who must arise and be and do what He has called us to be and do in this hour. We must not become complacent or lukewarm in our prayers!
In addition I want to thank those who responded to the special call to 21 days of fasting and prayer that ends on June 6th D-Day. That specific strategy centered on praying Psalm 55:9 that God would "Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues", (the communication and speech; "the voice of the enemy" in the media, Hollywood and leftist politicians) who continue to promote violence, strife, trouble and deceit across the land (see Ps 55).
Thanks again for being a part and for standing in the gap!
Please see Franklin's message below and the info on the Night Watch this Friday.
Together in His purposes,
Along with 250+ Christian leaders, I am asking followers of Christ across our nation to set aside next Sunday, June 2, as a special day of prayer for the President, Donald J. Trump.
President Trump’s enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency. In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God.
This is a critical time for America. We’re on the edge of a precipice. Time is short. We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask God to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide the President.
We know that God hears and answers prayer. He can soften hearts and change minds. He is all-powerful, and He rules over the affairs of nations. The Bible instructs us to pray for those in authority, “that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior” (1 Timothy 2:2–3, NKJV).
On June 2, we ask that pastors would lead their congregations in praying for the President, that Sunday schools and other groups would join together and pray, and that individuals and families across the country would have a special focus on praying for the President that day.
Would you please join us in prayer and tell others so that we can have as many people as possible praying?
