I have a dear friend; Donna Watson. She is rallying everyone she knows to pray for our country each day. She and her husband have been encouraging others for several months now to set their alarms for 8:00 p.m. each day. When your alarm goes off, stop and pray for 1 minute for America. If you are with family and friends and your alarm goes off, you can stop whatever you are doing and pray together.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)

If you decide to begin this practice each day, I would love for you to leave a comment below or send me a note. I know it will be an encouragement to Donna to know that others are joining in.
*8 p.m. may not be a time that works for you at all. If not, you can always choose a time that will work better for you. I think the point is a concentrated effort to spend one minute a day in prayer for our country.
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving be made for all people-for kings and all those in authority” I Timothy 2:1-2, (NIV)
