Call to Prayer: 40 Days of Prayer. August 21, 2017




There is a lot of violence, division, and anger in America right now.

Alt-Left, AntiFa, KKK white supremacists, and Alt-Right.

Why? I think it is "Because the Church has been 'led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ' (2 Corinthians 11:2-4) and has become friends with the world and enemies of God (James 4:4-5)."
[see Hope: Modern Day Idols and Idolatry of the Church]

We need Christ!

"And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven.... But we have forgotten God...." (Abraham Lincoln's Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day)

"Moral principles have lost their distinctiveness. For modern man, absolute right and wrong are a matter of what the majority is doing. Right and wrong are relative to likes and dislikes and the customs of a particular community. We have unconsciously applied Einstein's theory of relativity, which properly described the physical universe, to the moral and ethical realm ... This mentality has brought a tragic breakdown of moral standards, and the midnight of moral degeneration deepens." (Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., from sermon "A Knock at Midnight")

I have answered the call to 40 days of prayer.

Empathy


Empathy: “the capability to share another's emotions and feelings.” (1)

Read Emapathy from "Gotta Have God 2" page 102.

Kyle thought saying Bret's name wrong was funny, but how would Bret feel about it?

We should always consider other people's feelings.
