Prayer and Spiritual Resources

 

The National Day of Prayer has great significance for us as a nation as it enables us to recall and to teach the way in which our founding fathers sought the wisdom of God when faced with critical decisions. It stands as a call for us to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people. The unanimous passage of the bill establishing the National Day of Prayer as an annual event, signifies that prayer is as important to our nation today as it was in the beginning.

 

E. M. Bounds says, “Prayer honors God, and dishonors self. It is a plea of weakness, ignorance, need,” and he continues by saying, “the (prayer) closet is not an asylum for the lazy and worthless Christian. It is not a nursery where none but babies belong…it’s the scene of heroic and unearthly conflicts…great things for God are done by great prayers. Those who pray much, study much, love much, work much, and do much for God and humanity.”
