40 Days of Prayer For America-Postscript


Real Hope and Change


We all face defining moments, crossroads in our lives. The life of a nation is no different. I believe we may have passed one of those defining moments, crossroads in the life of the United States of America on November 8 2016

Donald Trump is not the Savior of America.

In fact a tough and challenging road is ahead for him  as he leads a nation divided on so many fronts, no single person can solve all the problems set before us a nation. Mr. Trump and those he chooses to surround himself with will need our continued  prayers in the days ahead.

That being said, we may never know the full scope of  disaster that was averted on November 8th 2016. In my lifetime I have not witnessed a season like the one we are in where the enemy was more at work, than he is now in our nation and the world.

We need to be about our Father’s business.

He is not willing that any would perish, but that all would come to repentance. Pursuing our mission of being and bringing light into darkness, is the most important thing we can do for our country and its people.

I wrote early on in this 40 day Journey that people change the course of a nation and I still believe that. Those who choose to  bring the message of the good news, the gospel  of Jesus Christ, bring real hope and change…

Father God I pray today that healing would begin in our nation.

I pray that the things that divide us would be overshadowed by Your promise and   finally realization of peace on earth, goodwill towards all people.

I pray today for unity in Your church. That we would bring down the walls of division and chase after the two things you said are most important, loving You with all we are, and loving others as we love ourselves

I pray You would bless our leaders with  wisdom and courage in the many challenges they will undoubtedly face in the coming days.

Thank you for all you’re doing and all you will do

God Bless America

About HCliffCraig.com

“Now at last they were beginning chapter One of the great story no one on earth has read: which goes on forever”. I love this line at the end of the Last Battle by C.S. Lewis. Everyone has a story to tell and ultimately we are all part of a greater story that someday will be revealed in full. “ For now, we can only see a dim and blurry picture of things”. ( 1 Corinthians 13:12). My story is not remarkable, although the events I have had the privilege in my life to witness have been. I grew up in the south “the land of cotton” and the old times there were definitely not forgotten. I remember where I was and what I was doing when JFK and Martin Luther King were murdered in Dallas and in Memphis. I remember the Civil Rights movement, a time of great unrest and change. I remember the dawning of the “Age of Aquarius” in the late 1960’s. It was also the dawning of my love for playing music, a love that has stayed with me throughout my life. If my life were chapters in a book one would tell of my precious bride of 20+ years who endured so much and stood beside me through the good and the bad. One would describe the blessings of being a father and a grandfather. One would tell about how despite being “the wretch” the song sings about God was able to change me, and use me to make a difference in others lives, make me a servant in His church, and surround me with friends all because of His goodness. All part of a story that has had many twists and turns. I think of the words Jimmy Buffet wrote in one of my favorite songs "As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin’ man I have chalked up many a mile Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks And I learned much from both of their styles" And so it is true for me. But in all of my travels and all I have read and experienced nothing compares to where I am headed. The place where my story here ends and the story that goes on forever begins! "" I am confident that He who began a good work in you will carry it on until completion until the day He returns". Philippians 1:6 My hope is that as we all run our race that in some small way my words will encourage and speak to you, as your story is being written. And draw you ever closer to the One who loves you. Further up and further in!

  2. AMEN and amen. It definitely feels like a great travesty was averted… for the moment. We must stay on our knees… for even 4 years as necessary.
