A call to Pray!!

My wife and I watched a movie on Pure Flix last night called Gabriel about a young boy walking into a town that had lost hope.   The young boy was the Angel Gabriel and he was coming to help them get hope back to their town dressed as a young boy with a prayer mat. His biggest solution to bringing back hope was to have a group of ladies make Prayer mats for everyone in town.   It was the life saver for the town that was lost when they got back on their knees and then hope came back.
This reminded me of a comment that my pastor Shaun made last week about when he calls for a Prayer Meeting – very few people will show up. He has to name it something else to get people to come together to Pray.
Our GMM Team led by Lester L. have selected a day to Pray for the City of Cheyenne on the 12th of every month.   Today only 3 guys showed up to pray for our city – this is sad. One of the most important and powerful actions we can do is pray……..   If we are called to only pray as a group one day a month and avoid it because of inconvenience (this is my explanation to why men do not come) – then what is going to happen to our city if we are not talking to GOD?
** If you would like to join us on the 12th of each month please let me know – it is a very powerful and moving time.
I would like to share a song from Reba McEntire that explains “A call to Pray!! –  we have to get down on our Knees…   The name of the song is “Back To God”.

Here is a portion of lyrics and they are powerful – I cannot say much more than what Reba has said in this song.

Oh have you looked around

Have you heard the sound

Of Mama’s cryin’

Or do you turn away

When you see the face

Of the innocent dyin’

In these darkest days

Are you not afraid

That it’s too late


You gotta get down on your knees, believe

Fold your hands and beg and plead

Gotta keep on praying

You gotta cry, rain tears of pain

Pound the floor and scream His name

‘Cause we’re still worth saving

Can’t go on like this and live like this

We can’t love like this

We gotta give this world back to God


Have you lost a love?

Do you feel like givin’ up?

Has your heart been broken?

Are your kids okay?

Will they come home safe?

Do you lie there hoping?

You can make a wish, you can knock on wood

Oh it won’t do no good


You gotta get down on your knees, believe

Fold your…
