Matthew 17:19-21 “Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”
During the cold winter of 1777-78, General Washington and the Revolutionary Army sheltered at Valley Forge. It is said that a British sympathizer came across Washington in prayer and marveled at his fervency and faithfulness. This eyewitness went on to proclaim “our cause is lost” to his fellow loyalists. In his humble opinion, the British could not prevail against an army led by a man that could so passionately get ahold of God through prayer.
We must harness the same power that Washington used to bring about his great victory to bring about a great victory in our land in 2017 – a life of fervent and faithful prayer that gets ahold of God. May those enemies of God who are witnesses to our prayer life proclaim to their allies: “our cause is lost.”
PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICA WITH PASSION AND POWER. May we harness the decisive weapon that can bring about our victory and make our adversaries be chasing a lost cause.
