Despite the controversies related to the election of Donald Trump, to his partners and to those invited to the investiture, the investiture ceremony of the 45th President of the United States will take place today, Friday, January 20, 2017, and prayer will be at the center of the protocol.
Paul in the epistle to Timothy, encourages us "to make prayers, supplications, petitions, thanksgiving, for all men, for kings and for all those who are exalted in dignity". This is what many Americans have chosen to do following the call of several ministries.
Under the leadership of Franklin Graham, tens of thousands of Christians had gathered during the year 2016, to ask for mercy and to implore the forgiveness of God on the American nation, proclaiming this text of Chronicles.
If my people, upon whom my name is called, humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and if they turn away from their evil ways, I will hear him from heaven, and forgive them their sin, and I will heal their land. .
2 Chronicles 7: 14
Franklin Graham, again yesterday encouraged to pray for a new direction based on the Word of God for the American government.
“Prayer is what will make a difference. God has the answers, if we look to him. Last year I went to all 50 states and prayed with Christians on the steps of every capitol. We confessed the sins of the nation, and our own sins, and asked God to help us. I believe it has given us a new opportunity, a new day in Washington, and for the leadership of this country. We need to go beyond politics and come together in prayer. "
Donald Trump, declared that the country "needed prayer". Today, he will take the oath on the Lincoln Bible, but also on a Bible offered by his mother in 1955.
Today we join the 18 intercessors ofOne Day A Prayer :
- pray for Donald Trump to be a peacemaker in this war-torn world, so that we can lead peaceful and quiet lives.
- pray so that Donald Trump may be an instrument to rescue our persecuted brothers and sisters, so that we can live our faith in all piety and honesty.
- pray so that Donald Trump is a defender of the Gospel, of its values and of its message, so that all men are saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.
Praying in this way is "good and pleasing to God"! Let us place our trust in the Lord to act mightily in the life of Donald Trump.
