The new Superbowl (for Christians) is here--The National Day Of Prayer.
During each Superbowl we tend to want one thing, our team to win, alternatively, we will settle for our team to demonstrate signs that even if they lose, nevertheless they played well enough to appear in next year's Superbowl and furthermore show hope that they will be more than just a contender in next year's big game.
Very few other national days rival our National Day Of Prayer. If "One Nation Under God" can become true, the National Day of Prayer can help make that happen. Going back to the Superbowl analogy, functioning as "One Nation and Under God (or doing) God's Best Precepts" is the second best that Christian fans will settle for. The real or full Christian Superbowl, where Christians take all, this doesn't happen until Revelation 19:15 takes place, and King Jesus is on that triumphant horse. However, each year, Christians can be sure to make gains during each Christian partial Superbowl (aka National Day Of Prayer) by accessing the nation's previous year's activities, i.e., as a nation, were we as a nation...more humble or loved more mercy or did more justice and righteousness...than the previous year? (Micah 6:8)
In the Daily Kerrville Times article covering the event, Jennifer Reiley did an excellent coverage of the event as she wrote verbatim even some of the prayers prayed. For those who missed it, my bride and I got the mic to lead the public prayers for the local families section of prayers. Since (my bride and I) love and fight for all things about God and families, hence in our prayers we prayed from our hearts. We prayed for bad seeds and miseducation previously sown on the topic of families would undergo famine and drought, liken to how Elijah prayed for drought (James 5:17) and God made the drought happen for three years and six months. The prayer continued, we prayed the community would then be visited by a downpour of heaven's good ideas about marriage, love and child rearing. We believe for good family education to flourish, and then Christians will cherish the new crops from heaven of love, marriage, family and relationships. We also prayed for singles to be endowed with the stamina to live pure and cherish sexual purity. In Jesus Name, Amen! (If you would, please also pray this for your community.) Well, with our faith and that moment of prayer (along with the 100+ people joining us in prayer), we believe droughts on bad seeds and bad ideas planted about marriage will take place and the would-be bad fruits will die (especially in Kerr County Texas), and then followed by new rain and good heaven-based seeds and a fresh return to God's blueprint and real intention for families, love, and child rearing will take place.
We will talk more about this event on the Honeymoon Living Show on episode 15-(National Day Of Prayer, The New Superbowl!)!
Feel Free To Take A Little From Kerrville's NDP to Your Local Community
In the meantime, please continue to pray with us for the famine to take hold and the bad crops or bad ways and bad ideas about love, marriage, families and relationships won't further grow among Christians. Please pray your community will show signs of a loss of appetite for bad crops on marriage, love and relationships.
Last But Not Least
