I think America is going in the wrong direction.

I don’t believe the answer to our problem is a political one; I believe it is a spiritual one. America needs to turn to God.

We have two secret weapons in the church that we need to start using like never before; they are prayer and preaching. 

First, we need to pray for America. Pray that God would send a great spiritual awakening and that people across our land would return to Him. 

Secondly, we need to preach, and specifically we need to preach the gospel. It all comes down to this: each and every one of us needs to tell someone about Jesus. 

Would you use your secret weapons? Would you make it a daily priority to pray for America? Would you look for every opportunity to preach the gospel?

    I could not agree with you more, for Everyone, Everywhere. America and the world. As Abraham, Isaiah, and Moses replied to God, my reply to Him ad we’ll is, “Here I am”.

    Pastor Greg, I agree with you that the only solution to turn America around is spiritual and not political. America needs to turn back to the only true and living God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Thank you so much for your encouragement to pray each day for America and to preach the gospel at every chance to do so.

    I will give it my best to do that through the Holy Spirit who is within me because I trust in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord. Thanks, Bob Windle

    I want to preach the gospel, but I need help in getting started. The Lord keeps telling me to preach His gospel.

    I commit to pray for America. We need to turn to God with ALL our hearts & pray for revival in our land. It is not a political answer, but it is a God answer & I repent of my sins & commit to follow Jesus with all my heart all the remaining days of my life.

    Pastor Greg,
    Each and every weekday morning I look forward to listening to you on my drive to work. You have a way of sharing the gospel in ways that are easy to understand. I have and am still going through a very difficult time in my marriage. Your ministry has helped me to have hope. Only God knows the plans He has for me but I know that I can trust in Him.
    I have been blessed since becoming a Harvest partner.
    I will join in prayer for our country that so badly needs Jesus.
    May God continue to bless you, Cathy and your family.

    I agree with Paster Greg Laurie our country needs prayer. From our congress to the president and our Supreme Court. They have all forgot that this country was founded on the beliefs if God and his son Jesus so yes I will pray for our country and our leaders. And that the Holy Spirit enters all the people of our country

    Hravenly Father, in this world of unrelenting changes, You are the One who never changes, You are the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Give us the stability and the right leader according to Your plans.
    You created a beautiful world that reflect Your perfection. Now, however, this world is under the bondage of sin and evil. Every person on this planet faces gaping jaws of uncertainty. The only way to end this poisonous threat is drawing closer to You. Help each and everyone of us to search for You and to diligently seek You and rely on You for this coming changes on our leaders. We trust you Lord that everything is under Your control , In Jesus Precious Name we pray, Amen!

    Dear Pastor Greg and Harvest Ministries ,

    I have been listening to your messages on my smartphone and computer for just a little over a year now, and I feel that I have grown spiritually because of it. I have shared CD’s and books that I have ordered from the website with several of my friends, both Christians and non. I am so thankful you this ministry, and I commit to joining you and your team in praying for America. Thank you for the work you do for our Lord.

    In prayer,

    Kim Hamm

    We, the American people, are standing on a narrow precipice and still unrepentant of the evil we have voted for. abortion, perversion, raising our children to believe they are entitled to take what they want and avoid working for their living.
    We have been apathetic and not voted, sat idly by while our children were indoctrinated by the atheistic school system, and watched while our God and king is refused entrance or access to our children’s schools and our public buildings which we paid for with our taxes.
    The only chance of turning this around is following II chronicles….repent….turn away…seek God’s face.
    my youngest son is a pastor, yet advised his “sheep” not to vote because it is futile and God will have his way in the end.
    It is this apathetic mindset which is diametrically opposite to God’s instructions to us while we await his coming which allows these ungodly ideas a place in our government and a foothold in our children’s minds.
    I have been and will continue praying diligently for our country and those who God has given power. These governing leaders will have to answer to God for their service.
