Proverbs 27:17 “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.”
Challenging other like-minded believers to reach towards greater heights is a fundamental part of God’s plan for success in the Christian life. Those who do not receive motivation from others in this way will rarely succeed. In amazing brevity, this verse offers two challenges of its own. First, the Lord encourages us to be strong Christians ourselves so that we can be used effectively to strengthen others. Second, the Lord encourages us to be humble Christians, recognizing that no matter the magnitude of our current strength, there is still strengthening to be done. This mixture of strength and humility is the key to mutual success.
The fundamental concept of PLUS, as described under the “Personal Motivation,” “Strategy,” and “Vision & Mission” tabs, is for this burden to be shared with others and spread through word of mouth. This website is meant to challenge Christian citizens to pray regularly and fervently for the United States. It was born out of a humble recognition that I had failed to be the prayer warrior that my nation needed me to be, and out of a strong determination that I would never again fall short in this way.
At the same time, PLUS is also meant to encourage you to humbly but determinedly challenge others in a similar fashion. Encourage others to pray for our nation, on their own or by your side. Prayer that permeates our nation will promote Christ to His proper position of preeminence. PLEASE PRAYERFULLY CHALLENGE AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO PUT THEIR BURDEN FOR AMERICA INTO ACTION THROUGH THEIR OWN PRAYERS. Sharpening others in this way will magnifying our mutual impact, on our nation and on each other.
