Michael Youssef Seeks 100,000 Bible-believing Americans to Pray for Nation
May 6, 2010
ATLANTA, (christiansunite.com) -- Michael Youssef, Founder and President of Leading The Way, is calling on Bible-believing Americans to covenant with him to pray daily for America between July 4th and November 2nd. This urgent appeal comes as a result of a significant shift in the direction of the country.
"Growing up in a socialist dictatorship, I longed to come and live in America," stated Michael Youssef, Ph.D. "I am so thankful to be here and to be called an American. However, I am concerned about decisions being made by today's leaders and I know that Christians must seek Godly wisdom in this time."
"I thank God for all the activism that is taking place," he added. "We need to act, and be involved; prayer is not an excuse for inaction. However, God promised to move on behalf of His children when they pray."
