Why America Needs Our Prayers Now

I've received several warnings recently concerning terrorist attacks against America, and I want to ask you to join me in praying for protection from these attacks. Within the last few months I have had several credible dreams presented to me about this, five of them within the last week.

While warnings such as these are subjective in nature, and dreams always need careful discernment and interpretation, I feel that the dramatic and sudden increase of these warnings merits this call to prayer.

I don't feel it is necessary to give details from the dreams—suffice it to say that the attacks seen were worse than those of 9/11. For some time, many of us have felt that more terrorism was possible for America. One need not be particularly prophetic to know this is planned by our enemies—indeed, our government warns us of this and encourages regular vigilance, and plots have on occasion been discovered and thwarted. But many intercessors and prophets have felt that something on a bigger scale is being planned and stands the chance of succeeding. This is what the recent dreams warn of, and the sense is that it could be imminent.

I'm asking you to join me—for the next few days especially, but also over the next few weeks—in interceding for God's protection over our country. Yes, we as a nation have sinned against the Lord in many ways, and perhaps if we receive what we deserve it would be further judgment. But that is to be determined by the Lord and it is always appropriate to ask Him for His mercy.

• Pray that plots will be exposed and the individuals involved will be discovered and captured.
• Pray for the success of our law enforcement and protection agencies.
• Pray for sound leads to come to them and for the necessary wisdom to “connect the dots.”
• Ask God to forgive and cleanse us of our wicked ways, and continue to pray that America receives a third Great Awakening.

Let's all do our part to ward off any and every attempt to bring violence and destruction to our land. Please help spread the word by forwarding this message about these warnings and the call to prayer. Thank you for joining me in the watchman alert.
