Today is National Day of Prayer. Here at Jesus' Economy, we believe prayer is critical to everything we do. Through prayer, anything is possible.
Please spend some time today to read and pray Anne Graham Lotz's prayer for this year. Please also pray for the seven centers of power in the United States.
Kalene Barry, Chief Projects Officer for Jesus' Economy, and I were recently in Colorado Springs, Colorado. While there, we recorded a podcast with National Day of Prayer Task Force about taking up our cross and following Jesus. We discussed what that has meant for us and for Jesus' Economy. In the process of following Jesus, we've done several things that many would consider crazy, like selling many of our possessions to get Jesus' Economy started. We discuss all this in the podcast and the spiritual process that got us ready for the moment of launching a non-profit. You can listen to that podcast here. John Bornschein, author of The Front Line: A Prayer Warrior's Guide to Spiritual Battle, and Dion Elmore were our hosts.
I cannot emphasize enough how critical it is that we all join in prayer for our own nations and for our world. Please join us in doing so and let's watch God move as we do so.
Prayer, prayer, prayer. I say it three times so it is memorable. There is nothing more important than engaging God, via relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord, in prayer, through His Word, and in community. Let's take up our cross and follow Jesus, empowered by the Holy Spirit.
