Pastor Greg Laurie, a columnist for the Worldnutdaily, is the honorary chairman of Joseph Farah’s day of prayer and fasting that the WND is promoting like mad for Sept. 11th of this year. And he’s sure that, despite all the other prayers that have ever been said, this time it’s going to do something:
Laurie, pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif., and the founder of Harvest Crusades, said the issue really isn’t complicated..
“If we pray, God will hear,” Laurie said. “When He hears, who knows what He might do?”
Laurie said the nation needs much prayer, not just a single event.
“As this year’s honorary chairman of the National Day of Prayer I support WND’s 9/11/13 National Day of Prayer and Fasting. I agree with Joseph Farah that America faces a spiritual crisis and there is nothing more effective we can bring our requests to God,” Laurie said.
“In Scripture, God tells us ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ (Jer 33:3)”
You mean God hasn’t heard this all before? There were about a dozen such events last year alone. And every day, millions of Christians pray that God will send “revival” to America. Did God not hear all those prayers before? Do you have it on good authority that he has Sept. 11th off and will be paying attention? Or is there something magical about this particular day of prayer that wasn’t true of all the other ones that the very same people said would make a difference?
