Here's today's Washington Watch Daily commentary from FRC Radio:
In Congress, the new leadership has given Americans plenty of reasons to get down on their knees and pray. From hate crimes legislation to bills on domestic partnerships, our country is under attack. But, we should remember that no piece of legislation or ruling by the courts is more capable of changing this nation than prayer itself. The Bible says, Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. The National Day of Prayer is set aside for our country to humble ourselves before the Lordto ask for His mercy on us, our families, and our nation. Every morning, newspaper headlines remind me of how much we as a nation, and as individuals need Jesus. So today, join millions of people all across America in asking God to heal our land. As I meet with our nations leaders here in Washingtonmany of whom are Christianstheir request is often the same: pray for us. Ask Him to bless our president and our leaders in Congress with wisdom. But most importantly, ask the Lord to draw the hearts of the people of America into a personal relationship with Him. God is all-powerful and all-loving, and Hes made a way for us to come boldly before the throne of gracenot just today, but every day.
