Praying for America by Dr. Robert Jeffress is a book for every Christian heartbroken by the path America is on socially, morally and spiritually. It is a powerful call to prayer at a time when so many of us are struggling for words.

The author outlines 40 areas of American life in need of prayer, guiding us in prayer for things like for truth to prevail, for national unity, for fair elections, for law enforcement, for pure sexuality, for Godly marriages, for the crisis of fatherless children, for the hurting, for those deceived by false religions, for discernment, for victory in spiritual warfare, and for revival. 

Each section begins with a story that exemplifies the importance of prayer in that area, then goes to a call for prayer, a bit of history, and finally a prayer and biblical verse. 

Dr. Jeffress is pastor of a mega church in Dallas, a noted theologian, a true believer and a voice of hope for Christians and American Christianity today. He is also a great writer.

This is a fearless and hope-filled book that clearly lays out the role Christians have been called to play in American society. It is a wakeup call, and it pulls no punches in pointing out the deceptions Satan is using to being down Christianity in America. 

As Christians, we are called to pray, and Praying for America is a wonderful lesson in both the need for prayer and the power of prayer.

More than a book; a prayer experience which couldn't be more appropriate for today's time.  All who spend time within these pages, will see a change in their prayer life and in their country as well.

Praying for America
40 Inspiring Stories and Prayers for Our Nation
by Dr. Robert Jeffress



Pub Date 02 Jun 2020

I am reviewing a copy of Praying for America 40 Inspiring Stories and Prayers for Our Nation through FaithWords and Netgalley:

In 179, Just fourteen years after America won independence from Britain, with the help of France—our relationship with France had deteriorated. The French Revolution had plunged that nation into godlessness. Churches were closed, crosses were forbidden, and Christian worship was outlawed.   In 1798 though President Adams decided to trust in God’s Will and declared March.23.1798 a day of prayer and fasting.  Just under a year later on March.06.1799 he declared another day of prayer.

In Praying for America we are reminded We have a responsibility as believers to stand up, push back against evil, and influence the spiritual and moral direction of our country.  

Throughout American History, Christianity has had it challenges, and has often times even been attacked and it tells of the men and women who stood up for their beliefs.

Every chapter of this inspiring and uplifting book shares demonstrating faith throughout the history of our nation.  Prayer for America is a needed book in the times we live in, times of anger and division.

I give Praying For America five out of five stars!
