Now in paperback—New York Times bestselling author Charles Stanley shares a thought-provoking, inspirational book calling our nation to get on its knees to pray, then stand up and become involved.
There is a tidal wave threatening our nation, and its unrelenting surge is changing American life as we know it. In the midst of this politically charged atmosphere, Dr. Charles Stanley issues a refreshingly calm, yet bold, call to action. Devoid of the hysteria that normally accompanies national commentary, Pastor Stanley offers a conservative perspective on the state of our nation and what we can do to redirect it.
In this revolutionary book, bestselling author Dr. Charles Stanley also offers a step-by-step twenty-week prayer guide to help our nation pray for real change. It’s time, Dr. Stanley says, for us to take responsibility for the direction of our country and become involved both at the civic level and through fervent prayer.
There is a wave sweeping our nation with dire consequences that is changing the way we live in America. Dr. Charles Stanley knows that the only way the tide will turn is if we as Christian citizens take action. Insisting that we are not powerless and that we can make a difference, Dr. Stanley encourages readers to get down on their knees to pray, then get up on their feet and become involved. We must take action to turn our country away from one that:
- Is headed for financial bankruptcy
- Views a sinless, peace-loving, benevolent Jesus as one to be vilified
- Is becoming more and more taxed, so that the government builds programs that benefit only those in leadership positions
- Is negligent in the handling of Israel, as well as unaware of the danger to any nation that challenges Israel's God-mandated right to exist
- Has little regard for the innocent, especially the rights of the unborn, the elderly, and the handicapped
This call to action has never been more needed, and in this inspirational and motivating book, bestselling author Charles Stanley offers practical steps Christians can take to turn the tide. He challenges readers to pray that God will change the direction of our country from one that is blind to the negative impact of socialism to a nation that looks to God for guidance. It's time, Stanley says, that we take responsibility for the direction of our country and become involved both at a civic level and through fervent prayer.
