The greatest ministry any Christian can have is the ministry of intercession. It is this ministry that can turn the heart of a nation. The great soldiers of Christ throughout the ages have won great battles on their knees. It is on our knees that we see His hands stretched out for a lost and dying world. It is on our knees that we see the power available to us by a resurrected Christ. Samuel Chadwick said, “There is no power like that of prevailing prayer…It turns ordinary mortals into men of power. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings life. It brings God.”

Study the history of the church and you will discover that awakening comes when God’s people pray.

Evangelist Sammy Tippet

  • Lord, help us to pray! A few minutes on our knees on Call2Fall Sunday is but a pittance, a token of the kind of prayer you desire, and the kind of prayer the circumstances in our nation require. We are desperate. You said, “Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” I cry out for my nation today, I cry out for the church in America, that he will deliver us and that we will yet glorify thee. Raise up an army of weeping prophets like Jeremiah, an army of intercessors who will cry out to you day and night until your mighty right arm has been revealed in this nation yet again. Turn our hearts back to you; bring life to a nation teetering on the edge of complete self-destruction. In Jesus’ name, Amen. (Dt 8: all; 24:23-31; 28: all; Is 1:16-20; Lam 2:11 ff; Is 62:1-2; Eph 6:10-20; Th 5:17).
