HARVEST GLORY, I ASK FOR THE NATIONS 

page 355

 

"After concentrating my efforts overseas for so many years, my focus was suddenly drawn to Washington and America.  I came home to attend the Second Inauguration of President Ronald Reagan.  During his First Inauguration four years earlier, I went with friends in political circles to some of the breakfasts held around the capital on the morning of the inauguration. During each inauguration many such breakfasts are held; some by the party that has won the election, and others by various Washington power brokers.  People who are considered to be of importance in the nations are invited to attend.  This is all fine, but where were all the praying people at a time like this?  I found that because Washington is very crowded on Inauguration Day, many people who have ministries there go out of the city for the day to avoid the hustle and bustle.  Wouldn't it be wonderful I thought, if someone would organize a prayer meeting for inauguration morning that ordinary people could attend ?

When God spoke to me to host the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast four years later, we didn't know who would be the President-elect or which party would win the election.  We didn't even know who the candidates would be.  ................."

 

 We are called for this day and this hour; born for it;destined for it. It is a time greater than the Day of Pentecost, greater than the period of the first century church. The end time, The time of the culmination of all things. The day of fullfillment. The day that the Apostles longed to see. The day that we are not only seeing, but the day we are experiencing.
