67 days. In this time we can pray for the Primary Elections in every Tennessee House and Senate district twice. Primary elections are August 2.
Starting May 27, we will pray each day for 3 House districts and 1 senate district. This will take 33 days. We will then pray through this schedule again – 66 days of prayer.
The 67th day will be Wednesday, August 1. We ask that churches who care to pray for Tennessee hold corporate prayer (before, during, or after normal Wednesday evening services) to pray first for their own primary elections and secondly for primary elections across the entire state. It is important that you include your entire family in this prayer service. We must pray as families!
If your church won’t pray for Tennessee, we ask that you would host a prayer meeting in your home and invite at least one other family to join you.
The call to prayer and repentance permeates all of scripture. Tennessee has a rich Christian heritage and at one time our prayer meetings were rich and vibrant. This is no longer the case, and like Israel so often did Tennessee finds itself in need of the Touch of the Lord, both on our churches and upon our system of government.
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
At every election, we find ourselves at a crossroads. Will we elect leaders who will do wicked in our counties, in Nashville, and in Washington, or will we elect leaders who will wisely govern according to the scriptural principles upon which this nation was founded? Will we rejoice in the good that is happening in our land, or will our nation mourn?
There has been much mourning in recent years.
However, the Lord makes a call to us, His people:
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7.14 KJV
