James 4:14 “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”
‘Meeting situations with prompt action and resourcefulness’ is the military definition of the term ‘initiative.’ Military strategists, from Carl von Clausewitz to Napoleon Bonaparte, have uplifted this principle as one necessary for strategic success. Bold action is necessary to meet one’s objectives, especially when time is a critical component.
Yet, American Christians have watched the nation drift away from its founding ideals and principles at an accelerating rate with little sense of urgency about the deteriorating situation. We are content to lament our state of affairs, while ceding the initiative instead of seizing the initiative.
Frankly, the intent of PLUS is to reverse this trend by seizing the initiative through the powerful weapon of prayer. PLEASE FEEL A SENSE OF URGENCY ABOUT THE NEED TO PRAY FOR OUR NATION, AND ENCORUAGE OTHERS TO JOIN YOU. Waiting for the morrow may be too late.
