This is a prophetic picture, America.

We as a nation have been crippled by sin and by turning from God.

When this young man who is “running” for Congress painstakingly stood up out of his wheelchair for liberty at the RNC last night, many who were watching cried, because it was a picture of our desire to see this nation RISE UP and RETURN to God.

Although a political convention, the RNC is providing many humble, healing, powerful, prayerful voices.

It is no accident that our nation is at a pivotal point during this Season of Repentance and reflection leading up to the High Holy Days on the Hebraic calendar this fall.

I’m grateful for believers such as Franklin Graham, who will be holding a prayer march, and Jonathan Cahn who will be holding THE RETURN in our nation’s capital, a national and global day of prayer and repentance on Saturday September 26. [One day before Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.]

Both events are intended to lift up the USA and all nations in prayer during this unprecedented time of testing. When King David prayed for Israel, “the LORD was moved by prayer for the land.” (2 Samuel 24:25)

“For if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” ~ 2 Chronicles 7:14
