  1. I heard a wonderful debate once by Christian leaders like John Piper and two others. Each one proposed a different scenario. One believed in a pretribulation rapture, another in a mid tribulation rapture, and another in a post tribulation rapture. They each put forth scripture that supported their positions. At the end of the debate I concluded that all three were right! I think you are right in that it is always better to prepare for a worst case scenario. For myself and my family, we are thoroughly prepared for whatever comes. We have stockpiled food and water for a year, and we are prepared to live without electricity if it comes to that. All Christians would be well served to be prepared. It was very kind of you to respond. Thank you and God bless you and your family.

  2. I am not at all happy with the direction America is going. The evil forces behind the attempts to destroy are country are hard at work. Nothing mankind can do is going to prevail against what is happening in Washington, D.C. and in our state legislatures. It is my fervent hope and expectation that God will intervene and save this country and his people until such a time when he removes his remnant from earth in the rapture.

    1. I am with you 100% on your opinion of what is going on in America, Hugh, and am fervently praying God will have mercy on all of us. But my reading of Mark 13:5-27 makes me suspect Christ’s return may be at the end rather than at the beginning of the Great Tribulation. I certainly hope you are right about the pre-trib rapture — and if you are, you are welcome to spend all of eternity telling me “I told you so” – but I’m going to prepare as if I may have to live through it or be martyred in it. That way, if Jesus comes early, I’ll be relieved and pleasantly surprised, but if he doesn’t arrive until the end, I shan’t be disillusioned.

  3. I would like to use your Praying for our Country in our church newsletter, featuring a different letter of “Country” each month, to encourage our people to be praying for our country year round. I wanted to check with you for permission to do this. We have already made the printed guide available.

    1. Sure, Barb. I’d be happy for you to do that. If you’d also include a link to my original post where they can download a free printable copy of the whole prayer, I’d be most grateful.

  4. Jennifer,

    I tried clicking the link for the color version and received an error message. Can you check the link or may I have a copy of the color version emailed to me? Thank you!

    1. Thanks so much for alerting me to that broken link, Stephanie. I’ve fixed it now, so others won’t be frustrated, but I also emailed you a copy directly, so you won’t be further inconvenienced.

  5. Our church would like to include your Prayer for My Country in our May newsletter, distributed free to our congregation. We would like to encourage our members to use this on the National Day of Prayer. Would we have permission to do this? Thank you!
