Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
This morning I was going into a prayer meeting with a friend when he said, “What is this world going to do without Billy Graham?”
I said, “He is probably raising up another.” And I do suspect He will raise up many to preach the gospel to our world. I would be surprised if they were not already on the scene.
I don't necessarily mean God is raising up someone to impress the world in our day. I hope God raises some up with Christlike integrity. That is what He did with Billy. With all of his spiritual and intellectual gifts, and preaching ability, Billy's greatest strength was his nearness and faithfulness to God.
But while I hope and suspect God will raise up another Elijah for these days, I am earnestly praying for Him to do something else. Especially for our day and our world, I pray for God to raise up a mighty prayer warrior, or an army of prayer warriors who will slip under the world's radar, and yet shake its foundations of power. I don't know if any of these people should directly influence 5 or a dozen presidents. God will do what He desires. But I suspect He desires a prayer army more than anything else in these days.
Is He calling you? Are you one that God is calling to shake the world on your knees?
