I Kings 19:18 “Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.”
Elijah was initially wrong in the previous post. He was not alone. Unbeknownst to him, he had thousands of faithful allies in Israel. Not everyone had bowed his knees to idolatry or secularism.
We are not alone. We have thousands of faithful allies in America. I know this first-hand because my work has given me occasion to travel extensively, and I have always been encouraged by the faithful Christian citizens I have met in dedicated churches around this nation. There are faithful men and women in Knob Noster, Missouri and Las Vegas, Nevada. There are faithful Christians in Goldsboro, North Carolina and Santa Maria, California. There are faithful Christian citizens in Prattville, Alabama and Dayton, Ohio. We have faithful allies in Bowie, Maryland and Albuquerque, New Mexico. We have faithful comrades in Niceville, Florida and Lancaster, California. There are steadfast churches in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Bossier City, Louisiana. There are faithful Christians from coast to coast.
Imagine the power of such an army of believers. Imagine the temporal and eternal impact if Christians in just the locations mentioned above would faithfully do one thing – take time daily to specifically and fervently pray for our nation and its leaders. Imagine the signal it would send if we each stepped out of our workplaces at lunchtime to pray. Maybe it would be a bit disruptive. Potentially it would cause a bit of a stir. Undoubtedly it would send an unmistakable signal. Unquestionably it would cause politicians to take notice. Probably it would make a point more powerfully than the largest protest. Possibly it would convict Christians who have been carried along by secular culture. Hopefully it would call down the power of God to make a massive impact on this country.
PLEASE GET OUT AND PRAY FOR OUR NATION AND ITS LEADERS. Those who have not bowed their knees to modern-day Baal can make the greatest impact by bowing our knees to the Lord together.
