Prayer works!

It is easy to feel that the United States is crumbling before our eyes. This year there has been one dire crisis after the other: impeachment, plague, racial strife, cities on fire, and political disunity.  If there ever was a time for Americans to drop to our knees and pray, it's now. 

Toward the end of his life, Saint John once said: 

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us."  

Saint Peter put it this way: 

"The Lord watches over everyone who obeys him, and he listens to their prayers...." 

Prayer is, beyond doubt, the most potent weapon the Lord gives us.

The election in November will be challenging, no matter who wins.  We need to pray!  We need to pray that God will continue to shine his light on America.  We need to pray that this country remains a place where prayer is welcome, and God is honored.

On October 8th, I am inviting my friends to begin - 54 days of prayer for America.  The first 27 days will be prayers of petition asking God to bless our elections on the 27 day – November 3rd. Then we will offer 27 days of thanksgiving to God for answering our prayers.  

I encourage those of us who are Catholic to pray the rosary.
