“May day. May day.” Listen! Do you hear that? “May day! May day!!” Our Ship of States has lost its moorings and is adrift. We must take notice and respond now, not with dismay or despair, but in hope and obedience. This is the day our Lord has made for us, His people. In the days of this May, we can rejoice and be glad in them.
The first day comes fast upon us--the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 5th. For 60 years God’s Word has called out through this national pause for His people to seek His face in prayer. II Chronicles 7:14 calls for His people to remember Whose they are, to humbly declare that they are called by His Name, and to pray. Seek God’s face with a pure desire to serve Him alone; pray in confession, ask forgiveness, then turn away from sin. God assures us that He will hear our prayers, forgive us, and heal our land.
